Finally~ some respite from the weather! But that doesn’t mean my lips are any less pouty – only because I’m wearing this awesome item that makes my lips pop and look cherry-like hurhurhur.
Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylip Liquid Stain
The Packaging: A slim tube measuring 11cm. The twist-on cap is attached to the sponge-tip applicator which is slightly pliable and rather soft. The size of the applicator is small enough to navigate the corners and outline of the lips.
The Scent: Nil.
The Texture: Smooth and applies easily over the lips without dragging (and this was applied on my very dry and chapped lips).
The Verdict: Highly, intensely, amayzingly pigmented – if you’re looking for a lip product that’ll stay on and on and on, this is it. It helps plump up the lips slightly, is slightly hydrating when you first apply it (but then it eventually dries out after several hours, so be sure to bring along some clear untinted lip balm or Vaseline). With just one coat, the colour stays really strong for several hours – even after eating and drinking (and peeling the lips, yes yes i know I shouldn’t be doing this), the colour is still a very strong stain/tint. I prefer to dab a bit in the centre of the lips and then blend it out with a lip brush or fingertip, cos a full coat will give you superrrrr strong colours. All you need to beware of is the drying out (after several hours), especially if you have dry chapped lips like me. However, fret not – a slight swipe of the lip balm and your lips will be refreshed and good to go!
