I’ve been seeing these L’Oreal Lip Paints all over social media recently and lots of bloggers and youtubers raving about them, so of course I had to pick one up and find out for myself! When I try new products I normally just pick one up and test it out and then if I like it I go and buy more to test out to see if the quality/pigment etc. is consistent in the line.
When I saw the tube I expected it to have a diagonal plastic or foam applicator but I was pleasantly surprised it had a doe foot applicator which for me gives the product a bonus point! The Lip Paint does have a slight scent to it but nothing horrible it does smell a little fruity but goes away when applied on the lips.
I expected this product to be like a liquid lipstick, and it does state on the back of the tube that it is a liquid lipstick, you apply it to your lips and it dries down matte, this was not the case. I was waiting ages for this to dry down and I thought I had made up my mind that I really did not like this because it was not matte at all! When you first apply the Lip Paint it has a satin finish and almost a whipped texture, and it stays like that, it does not dry at all. I then went to go take it off and discovered that if you blot your lips with a tissue and take the excess product off it turn matte! I was amazed and then went on to wear it all day and it lasted really nicely and felt like there was nothing on my lips and it had a silicone feel to it when I touched my lips.
I started to think that if you are applying this and then blotting off half or more of the product just so you get the desired finish it seems like a mega waste of money! I’m not sure if all the colours are the same or it may just be mine, I will be purchasing more to find out so follow me on Instagram to stay updated! I purchased the shade- 201 Hollywood Beige.
Hope you enjoyed my review, and found it helpful in some way, I haven’t totally made up my mind on this product which can be the case sometimes!
