Kaleidos Adobe Cloud Lab Lip Clay ($12.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark orange with warm, brown undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage paired with a velvety-smooth texture that was lightweight, thin, and spreadable without catching on lip texture or feeling clingy. It dried down to a matte finish within five minutes from application. It stayed on well for five hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.08 oz. - $150.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "cream-to-powder texture" that is "kiss-proof once set" with a "silky and weightless" feel on the lips. The brand didn't specifically make any claims about pigmentation in their description, but the promotional swatches included at the point of purchase show fully opaque coverage across the board.

They have a very lightweight, mousse-like texture that was very lightweight, velvety, and smooth with good spreadability. The applicator held a good amount of product without being too generous, as I did not feel like I had to wipe off excess. They took a few minutes to dry down, and the dry down time varied a little between some shades. They were forgiving of most lip texture and weren't too prone to emphasizing lip lines or settling into them.

Most shades had opaque color coverage in one layer of product. With deeper shades, two layers tended to be better for full, even coverage, despite the shades themselves being quite pigmented in a single layer, but they were more prone to spreading and diffusing unevenly. The shades tended to dry down within 15 minutes with some doing so within five minutes to a more transfer-resistant finish.

The formula wore between four and eight hours on me with deeper, reddish shades lasting longer and leaving subtle stains behind. They felt non-drying over time. I did not notice any scent or taste.

Dune

Kaleidos Dune Cloud Lab Lip Clay ($12.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy-brown with a matte finish. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and velvety with a more silicone-like glide that dried down to a matte finish within five minutes of application. The product had full color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip texture. It wore nicely for four hours and felt non-drying while worn.

Does anyone know if Kaleidos has resumed shipping from Shanghai yet? I’m STILL waiting on Cold Brew, Black Jasmine and the azure lip paint. We received an email last week saying they were hopeful to resume normal operations in a “few weeks” and they’re throwing in a lip oil free. Since then radio silent..Im curious if anyone has any info or is in the same predicament with items still in limbo due to China’s lockdown.
