In my continued quest to try every liquid lipstick available, I’ve come to the LA SPLASH COSMETICS line. I stalked their Instagram page for a few weeks before deciding on which colors I thought would work best for me.
It seems that their Lip Couture Waterproof Liquid Lipsticks have received the best reviews so I bought the Latte Confession (browny mauve), Forbidden (bright fuchsia), and Innocent Vixen (nude beige). So how did they do? I must quietly rave at how well these wear! I had to become used to any liquid lipstick eventually start to flake but these seemed to have lasted the longest of any brand I’ve tried so far before they flake.
Yes, each is a little too matte for my liking but the longevity outweighs it. And I guess since they last the longest, they also seem to be the most difficult to remove as traditional makeup remover don’t seem to work. They have their own product to remove it but I also found coconut oil works great too.
I also tried the Smitten LipTint Mousse in Inflamed (a blue-red) and while the color was gorgeous, it didn’t seem to hold up as well on my lips as the aforementioned. I gave it to a friend of mine to further test and see if she has the same issue (forgot to get a picture of it before giving it to her!). Will keep you posted.
On the minus side, each lippie comes in a clear plastic box, which I felt was unnecessary and a waste as each top was also sealed to the base.
On the plus side, I really like the doe foot. It’s on the long side and allows quite a bit of product on it removing the task of having to dip the brush in multiple times.
Overall I’m giving these Lip Coutures high marks and plan on purchasing some of the other shades.
