I fell in love with The Lip Bar Matte Liquid Lipsticks after trying Savage last Fall. I was amazed at how good the formula felt on the lips. Smooth, creamy & non-drying, which is rare for matte liquids. The Lip Bar Bawse Lady appeared to be the perfect blue-based red lipstick. Since I didn’t own any red matte liquid lipsticks, I put it on my wishlist. But it was sold out for like forever. I finally got my hands on Bawse Lady at The Makeup Show NYC. I also picked up Man Eater. And my cousin gifted me Playmate for Christmas, but I’m just getting around to wearing it.
The Lip Bar Bawse Lady
Bawse Lady is a blue-based, classic red. The shade is neutral and would look good on any complexion. It’s red lipstick perfection. Straight up the best red ever. Btw, Bawse Lady features the new packaging from The Lip Bar. All shades will eventually be featured in this packaging.
Bawse Lady is officially my new favorite red lipstick. And that’s a big deal considering I probably have at least 10 other red lipsticks.
The Lip Bar Man Eater
Man Eater is a taupe nude with slight pink undertones. It’s the type of shade that dark skin women are probably afraid to wear. In fear that they’ll look like Tyrone Biggums. Fear not my fellow brown skinned beauties. Man Eater works for us. You can wear it with brown lip liner to tone it down a bit if it’s too much.
It took me a while to purchase Man Eater since I own ColourPop Trap and MUFE Artist Liquid Matte in #107 Natural Beige. I thought they were all too similar, but they are different enough to justify owning all three. That is if pale nudes are your thing.
The Lip Bar Playmate
Playmate is a blue-based hot pink. It’s not too bright or too pale. And will work with any complexion. I don’t know if I got a bad batch, but this one seems to have a different formula than my other Lip Bar lipsticks. It applies less opaque so it looks a little patchy. You have to apply another light coat while it’s still damp to get complete opaqueness. If you apply it too thick, it will flake off. Although the formula is off, I still love the way Playmate looks on me when I finally get a good application.
The Lip Bar Matte Liquid Lipsticks are available at Target (online only) and The Lip Bar $13
