Dose Of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick - Truffle - Review | KMC Beauty



Finally I managed to get my hands on a Dose Of Colors liquid lipstick, I have been wanting to try some of their matte range for ages but they are forever sold out. It was only by chance one day I was on the Beauty Bay website and noticed that they stocked Dose Of Colors and quickly snapped up this matte liquid lipstick in the shade 'Truffle', they also had 'Chocolate Wasted' in stock at the time which is also from their new colour range but I opted out of purchasing that shade as I felt it was too dark for my pale complexion and not really a shade I associate with Spring/Summer.

So lets get to it, starting with application, like most liquid lipsticks it has a dofus applicator which allows for a fairly accurate application, in comparison to my Colourpop and The Balm liquid lipsticks the formula feels slightly wetter at first which is great because if I slip up I have chance to clean it up before it drys, one stroke gives an incredibly opaque layer of colour too.
Once this lipstick drys to a matte finish it isn't completely bone dry it is slightly tacky but not tacky as in your going to get your hair stuck in it or anything like that, even when I tested to see if this product transferred onto the back of my hand it didn't, it wears very comfortably.
This liquid lipstick lasts a long time on the lips, I managed 6 hours with it still looking decent. Bare in mind if your going to eat while wearing this product it may fade off slighly, this happened to me on one occasion but it wore off from the centre and it just looked gradually faded, I imagine with the more bolder colours in the range this may look more noticeable when they wear away. This does not bother me in the slightest, I feel as though it's to be expected when your eating.

Price wise these are £14.50 each on the Beauty Bay website, comparable to the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick price point however I have never tried their range so could not compare the products.
I guess these are on the higher end of the price spectrum when you compare them to the likes of the Nyx Lingerie range (£6.50) which I have not tried yet or the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip ($6.00) which I don't think comes close the formula of this Dose Of Colors lipstick.

Overall I am so pleased with this lipstick, it's my current favourite formula of all the ones I own and honestly if they weren't so difficult to get hold of I would have many more by now, I have my eyes on 'Desert Suede', 'Cork', 'Sand' and 'Stone' for the future.
