Matte liquid lipsticks everywhere! There's no denying that matte liquid lipsticks are a big hit in the makeup industry now. Almost all makeup brands have their own versions of matte liquid lippies, may it be a high-end brand, local brand, drugstore, or independent ones. I admit that I am also a fan of these lippies and I have tried a lot of them already from various brands. Some are great, some goes straight to my HG list, and some quite sucks (sorry for the term). Recently, I discovered a good one!
Product Name: Butterfly Kisses Cosmetics Soft & Creamy Matte Liquid Lipstick
Available at: Lazada
Butterfly Kisses Cosmetics was kind enough to let me try their Soft and Creamy Matte Liquid Lipsticks. Right off the bat, you'd notice that the packaging looks very similar to the Too Faced Melted Matte lippies. Sadly, I haven't tried the ones from Too Faced so quality-wise, I cannot compare.
There are 20 shades available and I got to choose 3. Of course, I chose the shades that I know I will be using frequently.
While I was browsing through their digital catalog, the shade Hot Cocoa immediately caught my eyes and knew from the start that I'd be choosing that shade! That warm brown shade is just to die for! I rarely find shades like that so I made sure to get it. Not gonna lie, I had a hard time picking other shades because everything looks so goooood but I ended up choosing Mulberry Wine and Currant which colors are both my cup of tea.
Here is what they look like when swatched on the lips.
Currant - muted red
Hot Cocoa - warm brown
Mulberry Wine - mauve pink
In choosing a good kind of matte liquid lipstick, I always refer to these points:
- truly matte but lightweight
- does not crumble and does not dry out the lips
- does not bleed
- good-quality applicator (not stiff)
- long-lasting, of course
First of all, you can tell from the photos that the shades are all very pigmented. One swipe, and you'll get the perfect opacity. You don't have to layer it to see the actual color. Next, it is absolutely matte. You can also see from the photos above that they look super matte but don't look dry, flaky, nor flat. It feels super light on the lips, I'm in love! It does not set that quickly so you won't have a hard time perfecting the shape of your lips. Some liquid lipsticks sets too fast that you tend to add more layers as you finish filling in the lips so as a result, it disintegrates and becomes crumbly (ugh). The Butterfly Kisses Soft and Matte Liquid Lipstick is awesome. Once it dries, it's already set. It won't move, it won't bleed.
The applicator, well, nothing special. It just looks like any other typical doe-foot applicators but it is not stiff so that's great. I did not a have a hard time using it. When it comes to longevity, I am also impressed. I attended an event this one time and used this lippie for the first time. Of course, I chose the shade Hot Cocoa. I've been so excited to try it ever since I saw it online and I finally got the chance to wear it on a special occasion. Hihi.
In this photo (above), the soft and matte liquid lipstick was freshly applied. That was around 3 in the afternoon. At the event, I saw my fellow b/vloggers, friends, and subscribers so there was a lot of talking. After that, I had coffee and merienda with some of my vlogger friends and hung out for a couple of hours. We snapped a photo before going home and here it is!
|Shout out to Joyce, Joel, and Jessica! I didn't realize that I was hanging out with J's until I added this caption. Haha!|
That photo with my friends was taken around almost 9 in the evening. I don't know if you can clearly see it but there's no sign of fading even after drinking and eating and being madaldal! It's still opaque, my lips were still nicely painted. No crumbling nor bleeding in sight. Here's a screenshot from my vlog that day when I finally arrived home.
I'm just obsessed with the fact that the lippie still looked so fresssshhhh! I can see mild fading in the corners of my mouth though but that's really no biggie considering that I was wearing the Soft and Matte Liquid Lipstick for about 7 hours already. It did not even fade on the middle pout of my lips. Gaaahhh! I can't express how much I love this product but I'm sensing you can already tell with that "gaaahhh". Hahaha!
So, yes! Butterfly Kisses Cosmetics Soft and Creamy Matte Liquid Lipstick is definitely one of the best liquid lipsticks that I have ever tried!!! And yes, it went straight to my HG list, too. The shade range is quite wide, with 20 beautiful shades. They don't have a lot of dark shades, though, but that's fine with me. Quality is A+ and oh! Did I mention how affordable they are? Each tube only costs Php280!!! Isn't it great? Considering its quality, it's definitely a steal. I do recommend it, absolutely. It's worth giving a try.
You can order from their social media sites (Facebook and Instagram) but you can also get it from Lazada.
