Aesthetic

Dose of Colors Aesthetic Matte Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark copper with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was smooth, fluid without being runny, and spread easily across my lips for even application that didn’t gather in my lip lines and dried down quickly (but gave me enough time to maneuver along the edges of my lips). It was intensely pigmented and stayed on well for over six hours. The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.16 oz. - $112.50 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "matte finish" with "rich color" that goes on "smoothly" and is long-wearing. It's a more mousse-like liquid lipstick, which makes it easier to apply and get along the edges without having uneven edges and less color gets pulled into lip lines than with thinner formulas. The dry down is fairly quick, but the finish and formula are forgiving enough to enable touch-ups for any areas that need more coverage.

I did find that they had a pretty strong dry down that had a tendency to emphasize the texture of my lips somewhat, though they appeared drier than they felt, as they were comfortable and non-drying to lightly drying. The wear was good and typically five hours or longer with lighter shades fading faster and deeper shades lingering longer (and staining slightly). The formula has a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Fresa

Dose of Colors Fresa Matte Liquid Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, fluid, and a little thin–almost streaky when I initially applied it, but it seemed to self-level and smooth out when drying down. This shade lasted well for over six hours on me, left a stain behind, and was a touch drying toward the end of wear.

I am in love with the look of Fresa! Because strawberries! It looks fantastic, but I worry about the that last little detail in your review of it: that it felt drying near the end of wear. So, Idk whether to take the risk or not.
