I love me a good vamp lip, even when it’s almost Summer. LASplash Smitten Lip Tint Mousse in Belatrix is one of those “I Mean Business” colors, it definitely makes a statement. Every makeup lover should have at least one color like this in their collection.
The LASplash Smitten Lip Tint Mousse is a transfer free, waterproof liquid lip color that dries down to a completely matte finish. It it extremely pigmented and applies easily with the doe foot wand. A single coat covers well, but you have to pay very special attention to the inner part of your bottom lip and cover well or it looks off. The mousse is very lightweight on the lips and 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 dry lips.
Bellatrix is a blue-toned eggplant purple that leans very cool. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart and is a color that you have to wear with confidence or it will wear you. You will stand out and get noticed.
Once the Mousse dries down it is completely waterproof and transfer proof. It wears for at least 8 hours but requires that the inner part of the lip is touched up after meals. That part fades easily and it is very visible as you can see in my lip swatch. The color does not flake or crack. Bellatrix comes off easily with an oil based makeup remover and does not leave a stain. It’s a little drying to the lips so I highly suggest letting a good moisturizing balm sink in before application to protect your lips.
You can purchase LASplash Smitten Lip Tints at LAsplash Cosmetics or in-store at Ricky’s NYC $13.98
this color looks like a perfect dupe for MAC royal.
I don’t have it but from looking at swatches, you are right!
