Tomboy

Makeup Geek Tomboy Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a muted, purpled plum with warmer undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, and the lipstick had a smooth, creamy texture that applied beautifully to the lips. This was one of the few shades that actually looked flattering on as it did not appear “cracked” when I smiled. It spread easily across the lips, and while it felt comfortable on, the formula itself still seemed drying, as my lips felt raw after wearing it. This shade wore well for five hours and did leave a stain behind.

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.).

Smarty Pants

Makeup Geek Smarty Pants Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that had a very velvety, smooth, and creamy texture that was easy to spread across the lips, but it just seemed to separate wherever I had lip lines. The formula felt so good initially, but I could not get the texture to look flattering on lips, no matter whether I exfoliated my lips or used balm beforehand. The color lasted for four and a half hours, left a stain behind, and was drying after I removed it.

Chatterbox

Makeup Geek Chatterbox Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was great, but it just did not apply as evenly as it should have. Even though the lipstick has a smooth, velvety feel on the lips, it had a tendency to catch and highlight every imperfection on my lips, settle into lip lines, and make my lips look drier even though the formula was not clingy nor did it dry down to a matte finish. The color lasted for three and a half hours before it had turned so patchy that it really needed a reapplication. It did not seem drying while I wore it, but my lips felt terrible a few hours later.

I think it’s really a shame that these not only don’t perform all that great, but also I’m stuck on that measely amount of product in the tube, because these are such beautiful shades.
Thankfully, there are dupes. I already do have some for Tomboy: CP Bijou, with Are &Be still on my wishlist, Smarty Pants: MAC Vegas Volt and UD Tilt. Pretty sure MAC’s Saucy Little Darling would dupe Chatterbox?
