Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’re all ready for Halloweekend. It’s sure to be a great one.
I’ve really been in the Halloween spirit the past couple weeks. Watching Halloween movies, gathering everything for my costume… It’s been the most festive time! I recently placed an order with LA Splash for some spooky liquid lipsticks in some really neat colors.
As you know, I have an obsession with liquid lipsticks, so I’m always trying to expand my collection. LA Splash has a really diverse range of colors—there’s literally something for everyone! Their formula is also really great—it’s extremely pigmented, smooth, and the staying power is unbelievable. Seriously. I have had LA Splash liquid lipsticks that have lasted through a steak dinner!
I ordered 3 Smitten Lip Tints: Nagini/Komodo, a deep green; Bellatrix/Bella Donna, a dark blue-purple; and Raven/Raven Claw, a vampy burgundy. I’d been wanting to try these shades for a long time, so I decided to take the plunge in the spirit of Halloween!
Bellatrix/Bella Donna: I really love this color. It applied smoothly, wasn’t patchy, and dried quickly. It’s a really unique purple color, more blue than red. I think it would be flattering on a wide variety of skintones.
Raven/Raven Claw: This is a really nice color, but it goes on very patchy. This isn’t uncommon for dark liquid lipsticks, but it’s nevertheless annoying, especially with a formula that has to be applied quickly in order for it to dry correctly. This color is also easily dupable, so you could undoubtedly find a less patchy version for a similar price point.
Nagini/Komodo: First of all, I LOVE this color. I didn’t expect it to be such a beautiful green or to look so wearable. However. I do not love how it applies. It’s patch city and really uneven. I had to apply two coats for it to be completely opaque, but given how fast this formula dries, that is not a viable, comfortable option. I’m going to keep trying to make this work because the color is fabulous.
