Dose of Colors Amazemint Blush ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with flecks of gold pearl over a mostly matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque color payoff with two to three layers, but it was not a product I’d consider to be “rich pigment” (which is how it was described). The consistency was soft, slightly powdery, but it was blendable and easy to work with on the skin. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Sneak Peek: Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick Swatches

Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick  

Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick  

Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a new liquid lipstick from the brand that launches officially on August 22nd (online) and August 25th (in-stores). The range released for one day last week, which was when I purchased the new shades. There are nine shades in total ranging from a peachy gold to a soft black. The formula is supposed to ahve “24-hour wear in a rich, glimmery, non-gritty formula” with a “liquid stain base.”

Anastasia Soft Pink Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, and while the lipstick tugged on my lips as I applied it, the color went on evenly and smoothly. There was slight separation of the lipstick at my deeper lip lines, though, and the color migrated into them over time. On me, it lasted for five hours and was non-drying.

The formula is supposed to have “full-pigment” with a “smooth, ultra-matte finish.” Since the description was a little light, I also watched the brand’s video, where the formula is also supposed to be comfortable to apply and not settle in lip lines. The best aspects of the formula are how lightweight it felt on–almost like nothing on, so despite being more matte and denser, not heavy or clingy–and that most shades have been non-drying (so far).

There has been some transfer, and the finish is mostly matte but not “ultra-matte” (certainly not as flat or matte as their liquid lipsticks, as an example). Some shades have emphasized my lip lines from a texture standpoint or due to color settling into them, but it depended on the shade. The wear has ranged from four and a half hours to eight hours, and some of the richer shades can survive a moderate meal and definitely drinking coffee. I found the texture to be the drawback; the lipstick is incredibly firm and dense with little to creaminess, which resulted in an application that tugged and pulled on the lips. It was also the type of texture that caught on flakes, so regular exfoliation is key. There were a few shades that were creamier and thicker on the lips, which were more comfortable to apply, but the majority were quite firm. (They also did not get softer with use.)
