Burberry Peach (25) Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy finish. It had rich color payoff, but it did not apply quite as evenly as the majority of the shades in the formula did. There was also more color that gathered in my lip lines, even from the initial application, that only worsened over time. The texture was creamy with moderate slip but still a more mousse-like consistency overall. The color lasted for five hours on me and was non-drying and comfortable on the lips.

The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is described as having “rich pigment, smooth application” and a “velvet finish that lasts up to eight hours” that is “non-drying.” Overall, the formula is fantastic for those who want the fluidity of a liquid product without the drying aspect of more traditional liquid lipsticks while not sacrificing wear time. The formula does not dry down completely, so there will be transfer, but the product is so pigmented that the color lasts awhile. I’ve found the colors to wear between six and eight hours and easily survive a solid meal. The liquid lipstick has a smooth, velvety consistency that is almost weightless (I forget I’m wearing it) that was never drying and always comfortable to wear. A pleasant surprise was that the formula was unscented (with no discernible taste either), which is not the norm with Burberry’s products.

Makeup Geek Cougar Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is bright, medium-dark plum with cooler undertones an a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a velvety, smooth texture that spread well across the lips. The color did not gather in my lip lines and looked fairly flattering (at least, compared to most shades in the range). On me, the lipstick wore well for five hours, left a stain behind, and was moderately drying.

The formula is supposed to be a “cross between a cream and a mousse” that is “highly pigmented” with a “soft matte” finish. The consistency has an incredibly velvety, creamy feel without being slippery or wet, so it felt very smooth going on the lips and lightweight. I liked the way it felt on the lips for an hour or so of wear, but after testing about half of the range, they did not wear down well with an uneven fade and significant color in lip lines. While traditional liquid lipstick can dry and look “cracked,” I noticed that despite feeling quite forgiving, the finish often was not as lip color settled into and separated away from lip lines. The formula wasn’t designed to dry down to a flat, matte finish, and it does not, so the transfer was similar to that of a traditional, satin-finished tube lipstick for me. On me, the liquid lipsticks have lasted between four and six hours on me. They seem mostly non-drying on but seemed more drying as I wore them, particularly if I wore two in a row, which would leave my lips feeling raw. Just a heads up, each tube contains a surprisingly small amount of product (0.06 fl. oz.) relative to a lot of popular liquid lipstick formulas (Kat Von D contains 0.22 fl. oz., Anastasia contains 0.11 fl. oz., Smashbox contains 0.13 fl. oz., Stila contains 0.10 fl. oz., MAC contains 0.17 fl. oz.).

Disturbed

Urban Decay Disturbed Vice Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep, burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, that applied decently but could have went on more evenly. The formula was thinner, a little watery, so it was harder to control-especially around the edges–and it didn’t self-level as it dried down, so any streaking became magnified as it dried down. It took about two to three minutes to dry down, and it remained lightly tacky for an hour (though it stopped lifting color after three minutes). It lasted for six hours and was non-drying.

The Vice Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be “intensely pigmented” with “complete coverage in one coat” and “nondrying wear” that is “comfortable” and “waterproof.” The majority of the Metallized shades are not even close to one-coat coverage–maybe three or four or coats!–and did not layer evenly, plus they had a tendency to lose sparkle/glitter through wear. Whenever a shade wasn’t opaque in one coat, it often looked streaky or uneven. There were some shades that had fantastic, one-coat coverage, while others featured more medium, buildable coverage but several applied uneven, patchy, and didn’t level or improve after drying down even with a second layer.

The consistency of the formula was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply, but the dry down was lengthy and some shades never fully felt dry (instead, lightly tacky). There was a learning curve to applying and wearing these, too, as they were unforgiving if you accidentally press your lips together before the formula has dried down–the formula is quite tacky as it dries down and pressed lips together results in color lifting away. The wear varied from shade to shade (and between finishes) from four to eight hours, and so far, most were true to the nondrying claim, at least. I didn’t notice any scent or taste with them. They were difficult to remove compared to most products; I had the best luck saturating a cotton pad with eye or lip makeup remover (Neutrogena, Lancome, Shiseido, etc.), yet curiously were not that long-wearing on me (relative to liquid lipsticks)–they seemed to develop a little tackiness with any meal or drink (even just water) and degraded from there. Overall, the formula was extremely disappointing after the successful Vice lipstick launch last year.

Hot Sand

Maybelline Hot Sand Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, pale orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was chalk-like in that it appeared drier, almost crumbly on the lips and separated at my lip lines (like a matte, liquid lipstick might after drying down), despite the actual texture feeling very creamy with moderate slip. I think that if worn with a liner, it would look more flattering on. It lasted for three hours on me, but it had severely separated over time. The formula was lightly hydrating overall.

Maybelline’s Color Sensational line does have a sweet, perfume-y scent to them, though it did not seem quite as overwhelming in the Inti-Matte range compared to past launches to my nose.

Chocotease

MAC Chocotease Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It was nearly full coverage, but there was a little translucency where a second layer (or just a partial layer in some places) would be a good idea. The texture was thin but not watery, spread well and dried down well. The lipstick wore well for just over seven hours on me, and it started to feel drying after four hours of wear.

The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula is supposed to be pigmented, last eight hours, and be “non-feathering.” They are typically pigmented and long-wearing, but the quality of the formula is all over the place–some shades wear down evenly, aren’t too drying, and apply well, while other shades are patchy, streaky, or prone to flaking (and also terribly drying!).

Burberry Primrose (21) Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium peony pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque coverage in one layer, while the consistency was spreadable, velvety, mousse-like, and lightweight on the lips. This shade lasted for five and a half hours on me but some color pulled into lip lines after three and a half hours of wear. I was able to rub my lips together to smooth the color back out, though. The formula was comfortable to wear and non-drying.

The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is described as having “rich pigment, smooth application” and a “velvet finish that lasts up to eight hours” that is “non-drying.” Overall, the formula is fantastic for those who want the fluidity of a liquid product without the drying aspect of more traditional liquid lipsticks while not sacrificing wear time.
