Do you see that; all that sexiness in the above picture? I've been lusting after the Dose of Colors matte liquid lipstick for what seems like years. I first spied them when Katy - LustreLux on YouTube did a collection video and raved about how amazing they are. Since then I stalked their Instagram and eagerly anticipated a UK release.
As soon as I found out Dose of Colors were available on Beauty Bay, I added two to my cart and watched for the postman every day afterwards.
Dose of Colors Matte Lipstick - Bare With Me and Truffle | £14.50 | Beauty Bay |
Dose of Colors is a vegan-friendly, cruelty free brand. The packaging of the liquid-matte lipstick is a sleek, frosted glass tube with a twist cap and perfectly-shaped doe-foot applicator. The lipstick is very easy to apply and the pigmentation is there in one swipe, I never have to add more which is surprising as the consistency of the product is quite thin.
I have given both colours a lot of wear and can tell you that they wore for 8+ hours, through eating (I had pasta bake one night) and drinking. There was no budging, no smudging and no retouching necessary. The lipstick is really comfortable to wear, it's the most comfortable matte lipstick I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot) as it's not drying at all. The quality, the formula, the pigment - I'm obsessed, they're fabulous!
L-R Bare With Me, Truffle
I decided to get some nude colours as I noticed my liquid lipstick collection was seriously lacking. Bare With Me is a peachy rose with nude undertones, and Truffle is a nude brown with pink undertones. They're great for everyday wear, and on a special occasion with a smoky eye - but let's not get it twisted, you can wear them with anything you bloody well choose.
I particularly LOVE Bare With Me, it looks great on my pale skin and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to purchase a back-up once it's back in stock. For the last few weeks, whenever I've worn makeup, Bare With Me has been on my lips, sorry not sorry!
Dose of Colors have a stunning array of colours but Beauty Bay sell out so quickly. I check the website every morning like a crazy little lipstick stalker and I don't even care, I NEED MORE. The colours that I currently have my eye on are: Coral Crush, Stone, Brick, Pinky Promise, and Chocolate Wasted, but in reality, I'd wear them all, just give them to me.
If you know me, you know I'm obsessed with Stila and Kat Von D liquid lipsticks, however they are now most definitely joint second, and DOC have taken holy grail status. They're just that good. They have my lipstick-loving heart.
