Makeup Geek Plain Jane is a very warm-toned, medium-dark plum with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $12.00 and contains 0.06 oz.
Makeup Geek Plain Jane Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a very creamy, velvet texture that spread easily across the skin, but the formula did not feel properly mixed as there was some graininess to it as well. The color sank noticeably into my lip lines after I applied it, unfortunately, and it worsened over time. This shade wore for five hours, left a pinkish stain behind, and my lips felt raw after wearing it.
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.).
A cross between a cream and mousse, this unique formula sits on top of the lips for a soft, “plush” feel. A wide variety of colors crafted in a soft matte finish, you’re sure to find a highly pigmented shade you love!.
