Although I didn’t purchase a lip kit, I did purchase the “Send Me More Nudes” which are four liquid matte lips (and there hasn’t been a review on that specific kit). I wanted to test out the formula and since this kit was on sale and I would be able to try out four formulas - I jumped on it.
On the plus, I like the smell of these and the fact they are glued to your lips once dried. This definitely has stuck around better than other matte lipsticks and where it earned the extra star.
Unfortunately, the cons outweighed the pros. This formula is very drying and highlights the natural cracks of your lips. If you had fillers I could see this being amazing if it doesn’t catch on texture. I also do not like the initial application. Normally I can work at the beginning with liquid lipsticks on the part of my lip that starts to meet the inside of my mouth. However, if that part of the lip (where the upper and lower meet) has any saliva on it the product won’t stick. It also means once you close your mouth, the product wears off quick from that inner portion - basically “butthole” lips. This is okay if you have a more natural color and the contrast isn’t insane, but on more vibrant colors that border is so obvious.
Honestly, I wish I hadn’t spent my money on this since I can’t even get myself to use them just to use them. It is too uncomfortable on my lips and the embarrassing “butthole” effect annoys me every time I look in a mirror. I personally wouldn’t recommend.
