Wild Apple

Kaleidos Wild Apple Cloud Lab Lip Clay ($12.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and slightly whipped and airy, but it spread beautifully across my lips for even, full color payoff that didn’t emphasize my lip texture or my lip lines. It wore well for five and a half hours and was non-drying.

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.

Mercury Wave

Kaleidos Mercury Wave Cloud Lab Lip Clay ($12.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep mauve with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. The formula took about 10 minutes to really dry down to a more transfer-resistant finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lips and didn’t catch on imperfections.

The texture was lightweight, airy, and more like a thin mousse, which helped it spread but not settle into my lip lines as it dried down. It stayed on well for five hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating on me.
