Lipstick is by far my favorite makeup product. I have over 100 tubes and probably use at least 90% of them. Liquid lipstick has been all the rage lately and since I haven’t tried them since way back when Avon used to make them, I figured I’d get my hands on a few for review. I purchased the ones that I had been eyeing from the Ricky’s NYC booth at The Makeup Show NYC. First up, Colored Raine Matte Lip Paint in Suite Raine.
The Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paint is easy to apply with the included doe foot wand. It applies like a really wet gloss and dries down to a matte finish.
Colored Raine Suite Raine is a blue based, cool toned matte purple. It’s unlike any other purple in my collection and trust me I have a lot of purples. The lip paint is extremely pigmented and covers the lips completely with one coat. Now you will have to make sure to exfoliate your lips and moisturize with a lip balm before applying as the matte formula is very unforgiving to crustiness.
Once dry the lip paint is waterproof and transfer resistant. It wears at least 8 hours without requiring any touch ups, even through meals. After 8 hrs I had a softee from Wendy’s and the inner perimeter of my lips needed touching up, but it was not very noticeable. Surprisingly it does not make the lips feel dry, it’s very comfortable on and I felt like I wasn’t wearing anything at all. I was able to remove it easily with the rest of my makeup using my MAC Cleanse Off Oil. It did not leave a stain and my lips were just as soft as before I put it on. Here is the entire purple themed makeup look that I wore with Suite Raine…
