L.O.V. FatalMuse Liquid Matte Lipstick

It’s no secret on this blog that I am a huge fan of L.O.V. Cosmetics seeing as last month I did an entire three part series simply reviewing their products. I shall link those posts below in the case any of you didn’t catch them or are new to my blog. For today’s post I’m focusing on a newer release of theirs and that’s their FatalMuse Liquid Matte Lipsticks.

Whenever I hear the word Matte in liquid lipsticks I’m automatically turned off because I have this instinctive fear that it’s going to be super drying on the lips and I tend to prefer my lips to be hydrated (with the exception of when I want to wear my M.A.C Russian Red Lipstick). These are not drying whatsoever, they are actually really smooth on the lips and set almost with a velvet finish. Pigmentation of them is intense with a high colour payoff.

The applicator is nice and thin making it possible for you to initially go around your lips with it to outline them before filling them in completely with the flattened side of it. I have two shades out of the ten available and both of them I love completely because they’re nice vampy shades that are perfect for the coming fall months.

SAM_3758

The first of the two shades that I have is No. 770 Extrovert which is a nice berry shade with a slight red undertone to it. I found these to last roughly 8 hours on my lips without touch ups and through non-greasy food. With gresy food however they do tend to break down slightly because of the oil.

The second shade that I have is No. 780 Bold Attitude which is a nice cranberry shade and out of the two I definitely gravitate towards this one more. Layering wise these don’t cake especially if you stick to nice thin coats when applying it. That said because these are so opaque you really shouldn’t need more than one swipe.

This is going to be my final post for LOV Cosmetics for the moment, I will of course be reviewing more of their products in the future. This post is gonna focus on some of their lip products the first of which is their lip liner in the shade 541 100% Grazia

SAM_3401

My love for this lip liner has no end as it’s simply one of the best that I have ever used. My favourites have always been the Isadora Lip Liners which I reviewed in my Lipliner 💋 over Lipstick 💄 post and since trying this out I’m very much have popped it at the same level as those.

SAM_3445

The formulation of it is super smooth and application which it glides on the lips like butter. It also has a handy brush applicator at the end that can be used for soften the line after you’ve applied it. Pigmentation is nice and opaque. The only really downfall of this product is that it does transfer because of it’s creamy formulation but that beats it drying the hell out of my lips that’s for sure.

SAM_3390

With lip liner comes a matching lipstick and I have mine in the shade 541 Grazia’s Bordeaux which is a nice intense burgundy red shade that really reminds me of old movies when it’s on the lips.

SAM_3461

Much like it’s lip liner the formulation of it is super creamy and soft. It applies beautifully on the lips without dragging and without grabbing onto any dry patches.

SAM_3397

 Last lip product that I have is the LOV Cosmetics LOVlicious lip gloss which to be quite honest I did not like whatsoever. The formulation of it is very sticky on the lips to the point where if you apply to much at any point you get that stringing effect between the lips.

SAM_3398

 

The applicator is nice and is able to provide enough product on it to ensure that you can cover your entire lips but because of it’s shape it offers no precise whatsoever. Over lipstick it can be considered to be opaque but on it’s own the coverage just isn’t quite there.

SAM_3463

I hope you guys enjoyed all these posts and reviews on LOV Cosmetics. I have certainly loved trying out and using the products and highly recommend them and the brand itself.

Some Love 💓 for L.O.V Cosmetics PT•2

In my first post on LOV Cosmetics I did a full review of some of their base products and for todays post I’m going to follow it up with a full review of some of their eye products. I will probably be doing a part 3 which will most likely focus on some of their lip products.

SAM_3391

Let’s start things off with the product that most people can’t go out in public without and that’s mascara. If I had to describe this mascara I would compare it to George Clooney-it gets better with age. The more this mascara dries out the better it applies, the more volume you achieve and the more dramatic the lashes. It’s got a very curved wand to it, and the formulation when I initially got it was very wet and gave a very natural effect when applied.

SAM_3393

I automatically popped it aside as a hate, but a few days later I was stuck for mascara and so I tried it again and noticed it was a tad bit better. Now roughly 3 weeks in it’s basically my go to. I just recommend that when you go to by a new tube of this to make sure you’ve got enough of your old tube left so you can let the new one dry out a little.

SAM_3402

The LOV Cosmetics Best Dressed eye liner is a gel liner in handy pencil like form. It’s also very highly comparable to the black liner from L’oreal that I recently reviewed (review linked below.) . I like this eyeliner, there’s nothing special about it. It gets the job done, has a great formula and doesn’t budge once it’s dry.

SAM_3447

The end of the pencil has a built in topper so you can always have a sharp point to your liner. The pigmentation is very very good in that the black is super intense and has no greyness or brown in it whatsoever. You need a good gel liner than I would totally recommend this.

SAM_3405

The same can be said about their Confidental liquid eyeliner. This is a felt tip liner and it has an extremely fine point to it to make sure you are able to create the perfect winged flick. I personally love how intense the pigmentation is with these liners as they’re so opaque and there is no patchiness to them whatsoever.

SAM_3443

As far as black liners go these are some of the best that I’ve tried and I think the only other brand that does similar quality ones to these is L’oreal but it should be noted that these are more affordable than L’oreal price wise. When I plan on repurchasing, L’oreal has been pushed aside and these will be the ones I will go for.

SAM_3406

Nude liner is just as essential as black eyeliner in any makeup collection. You should always ensure that you pick a nude liner that has a long-lasting formulation to it as most of the time the place of application for a product like this will be your waterline and you don’t want it to budge.

SAM_3449

With regards to LOV Cosmetics nude liner I found it’s formula to be nice and creamy and very long-lasting. I applied it on my waterline in the morning and it was still there when I went to take my makeup off at night. Because of the type of nude shade it is you can definitely double this pencil up as a pin-point concealing pencil if you’re ever in situation where you’re stuck for concealer.

SAM_3394

Let’s finish off this review with some eyeshadows and I’ve got two different formulations of them to share with you. The first is this champagne, almost icy white shade called 340 Winter Dessert.

SAM_3455

I didn’t like this eyeshadow at all, it has little to no pigmentation to it whatsoever and the glitter it has is very chunky which results in a lot of fallout. The lack of pigmentation also makes it look like you just thrown a loose glitter on your lids and walked out the door.

SAM_3395

The shade 120 Misty Earth which is a nice neutral brown, I absolutely adore. This is completely matte and blends to utter perfection. Looks so stunning on both brown and green eyes and is so pigmented that a little goes a long way.

SAM_3457

Both these eyeshadows come with a mini eyeshadow applicator that always end up in the bin and have a handy mirror in the lid of their compact.

I should have part three up soon which ill be a review on some of the LOV Cosmetics lip products so make sure to subscribe in order not to miss that!
