Hello my glamour babes! Did you miss me?! Well, I sure missed you! I have another Ammmaaazzzzzing liquid lipstick that I think you boys and gals will love or may already know about. Have you heard of Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick? You have?! Me too! I am head over heels in love. I cannot even explain to you how long I've wanted to try this makeup brand, all I can say is pretty darn long, lol. I don't know what possessed me to walk into Ricky's NYC awhile back, but it wasn't for anything special I'll tell you that, and boy was I happy I did. All Dose of Colors Cosmetics were 50 percent off!!!! Thank you universe for showing me the way! Their Liquid Matte Lipstick in Merlot ($18 originally, $9 during the sale) was my number one choice.
Thank god it was in stock, otherwise a little piece of me would have died inside since all the other shades I wanted were sold out (coral crush, kiss of fire, and pinky promise, siiiggghhh)! Drama makeup queen, I know, lol!
Merlot is described as a cool toned red that is super sexy.
Can I agree with this? Yes! Don't think so? Just take a look at my gorgeous selfie rockin that cool toned red lip for a wedding, super sexy right?! Don't you want it now? I bet you do! Totally worth every penny, sale or not.
Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick comes in an assortment of shades ranging from nudes, to pinks, to reds, to purples, dark browns, and deep rich berries. Merlot has a slanted doe foot wand for easy and precise application, is highly pigmented, has a velvety formula that does not dry out lips, and glides on smoothly, and sets in a matte finish, obviously, lol.
Seriously though, this color stays put all day long. I was wearing Merlot for a grand total of 11 hours and that was with cocktails, cocktail hour, dinner, desserts, coffee, and some more fun afterwards, and the color did not budge off my lips, nor, did it feather out or bleed, or become cakey, and crumbly. I probably could have slept with it on and still looked fabulous the next morning, lol! I definitely recommend exfoliating the lips before application, this is one of those matte liquid lipsticks that absorbs quickly and fills into every line and cranny, which can be seen if not exfoliated. Soft and supple lips are key here when using this gem of a liquid lipstick. I will be manifesting to the universe that Ricky's NYC has another Dose of Colors sale so I can stock up on the colors I missed out on, if that doesn't work I can always wait another 5 months until my birthday comes around. Good things come to those who wait!
P.S. Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipsticks are cruelty free, vegan, paraben free, and gluten free!
Stay beautiful, xo.
