Finally I’ve been testing out three of the LA Splash liquid lipstick formulas. The colours and formulas I’ll compare are the Lip Couture in Ghoulish, the Velvetmatte in Flix n Chill and the Studioshine lip lustre in Catrina. You can see the colours on my lips below.
The Lip Couture has a quite thin, liquidy texture and it dries completely matte as you can see in the picture. It is completely transfer/kiss proof, but it wears off a bit on the inner soft part of the lips when you eat and drink. It was really long lasting and very difficult to remove. You will have to use an oil-based make-up remover or actual cooking oil (which I used) to remove all of it. The Velvetmatte was not as thin and liquidy as the Lip Couture, but it still dries matte though with a more velvety finish as the name suggests. This one is also completely transfer/kiss proof, and as the Lip Couture it also wears off a bit on the inner soft part of the lips when you eat and drink. This one was long lasting as well, but I was able to remove it with regular make-up remover/cleasing water. The Studioshine lip lustre has a thicker more moussy texture and therefore very comfortable (the other two are not uncomfortable to wear, but the Studioshine lip lustre were the most comfortable one). It dries matte, but with a metallic finish as you can see in the picture. This one is also completely transfer/kiss proof, and just as the other two it wears off a bit on the inner soft part of the lips when you eat and drink. This one was also long lasting, and I was able to remove most of it with regular make-up remover, but I had to remove what was left with oil. In conclusion I like all three formulas, and the shade ranges are amazing. The only problem there is with all three of these is that they don’t layer well. After eating I would apply a bit more on mostly the inner part of the lips where the lipstick had worn off, and it quickly started to crumble on my lips, so I wouldn’t recommend touching up when you’re wearing these lipsticks. Apart from that I would still recommend all three formulas.
