LA SPLASH LIQUID LIPSTICKS


La Splash Liquid Lipsticks
"Bathe your lips in intense colour. The Lip Coutures and the Smitten Mousse is waterproof, smudge-proof and does not transfer or fade."

I purchased 3 colours, all directly from the La Splash website, because at the time it wasn't available in the UK. It actually ended up being much cheaper anyway. All 6 cost me £50 exactly inc VAT and P&P, I was not charged customs- YAY!
The colour range is huge! I looked through SO many swatches, contemplating which shades to choose - but limited myself to only 3. All the colours are beautiful, even the deep blue and black I'm not gonna lie I was tempted lol. 
I received them in exactly a week and the excitement was unreal. It's fair to say matte finish lip products has been trending within the last year. It has grown on me so much I actually can't stand the sight of super glossy, shiny lips anymore! Is it just me? A little bit of shine is actually okay, like these Mavala lipsticks (reviewed here).

The formula and pigmentation of these lippy's are ahhmazing! It seriously feels like they have some sort of glue formula in them because they do not budge from the lips at all. I have worn them from 7am to 9pm without having to retouch them, sounds too good to be true right?

Lip Couture in Ghoulish  |  $11.98 / £7.75


Ghoulish is one of those colours that look different against different complexions. It's a pinky purple with grey undertones (known to be a dupe for Limecrime Cashmere, swatches of both on my Instagram (click here). I have seen many people on Instagram wearing this colour and it's obvious they too wear another colour underneath as the colour can totally wash you out- it made me looked horribly washed out on it's own so I prefer to wear it with Mac Soar.

Smitten Lip Tint Mousse in Love Good  |  $11.98 / £7.75


My favourite from the trio I own. When I first got into makeup, I absolutely hated pink. And now the dusty shades are totally growing on me. Love Good is a mauvey pink, very in right now.

Smitten Lip Tint Mousse in Nymph Adora  |  $11.98 / £7.75


I think I fell in love with this shade because of the name. The names of all the colours in the Smitten range are quite cool- you can tell they put a lot of thought into it (or maybe just watched the entire Harry Potter movies back to back). Nymph-Adora is very warm pinky-brown shade which also looks different against different complexions and also when it's layered on. It looks similar to Love Good but more on the brown side.
ghoulish, love good, nymph-adora
They dry quickly to a matte finish but they aren't drying to the point where your lips feel like they need to be peeled (yes Birthday Suit I'm talking about you). I have worn these for an entire 12 hour shift and they do not budge. They're actually quite a pain to take off- a little makeup remover on a cotton pad doesn't cut it, you definitely need something extra like an oil-based remover.
