Lipstick Advent Calendar Day Four: Dose of Colors

This is the perfect time of year for this color. Dose of Colors liquid lipstick in Brick is a deep brown red. I have both positive and negative things to say about this product. First, the good- I absolutely love the color. The pigmentation is great, and the color applies well with one coat. The formula, however, isn’t anything exceptional. It’s comfortable if you aren’t a lip smoosher, like me. (Lip smooshing is the art of constantly and consistently smooshing lips due to lipstick patchiness paranoia). If you can apply and leave it alone, it wears well.

Here are my issues with this product- the applicator makes it very tricky to get a sharp line. Liquid lipstick isn’t liquid lipstick without crisp edges. I had to get a stiff lipstick brush to help clean up, which means I’ll be picky about when I reach for this lipstick. I also find that it goes a bit patchy as it wears, particularly in the middle where the lips meet.I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t worn it enough to report on how it does with reapplication during the day. If it crumbles, it will be cast aside. That’s my liquid lipstick pet peeve.

It’s fierce in photos, though. Get it here.
