BEAUTY HAUL: THE EXPECTATIONS -3- TRYING OUT SOME LIQUID LIPSTICKS
After what feels like two years of use of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks, I finally gave in and decided to try other liquid lipsticks. If it isn’t very original -most of us can agree that, as we keep seeing these, we are annoyingly both bored and tempted by them- I’m hoping my approach towards them will be. Indeed, as I tend to prefer a creamy formula other an impressive longevity, I believe my opinion on these could be interesting. Within this selection, I’m not expecting to find my new everyday lipstick, but rather some new formulas about which I’ve heard great things and, more precisely, I’m hoping to discover what advantages can I get from them.
Swatches from top to bottom: Cassis; Noisette (Jouer) / Mocha; Miami Fever (Ofra)
Of all the liquid lipsticks which are thoughtfully analysed on the Internet, the Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks and the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Crèmes are always listed as the most comfortable ones, yet it truly is the shade selection – as always- which convinced me! As much as I wanted to stay in the neutral sides of things, I was nevertheless determined to dare a little bit more within this area, and I believe the four shades I chose are fairly representative of my will! If Mocha – from Ofra– and Cassis – from Jouer– seem to respectively be a very typical peachy brown and a classic deep mauvy pink, Noisette – from Jouer– and Miami Fever – from Ofra– are a little bit more unusual. Noisette is a medium brown which doesn’t seem to have any undertones whereas Miami Fever is a brown with some strong brick red and orange undertones in it. While the safer shades will allow me to objectively judge the formulas, the risky shades will extend my makeup collection and, more importantly, they will give me a foretaste of the brand’s offering!
