Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipsticks | ‘Truffle’ and ‘Bare with Me’

As a huge lover of all things lipstick, I had to try the matte liquid lipsticks from Dose of Colors. They go in and out of stock on Beauty Bay and I am still patiently waiting for ‘Stone’ and ‘Desert Suede’ to come back into stock long enough for me to order them! I’ve had the link bookmarked for months and despite checking every day I always seem to miss them, or maybe they’re just not getting restocked!

The shades I do have however are ‘Truffle’ and ‘Bare with Me’ and they are gorgeous! ‘Truffle’ I would say is a brown, rosey nude whilst ‘Bare with Me’ is a more of a peachy, nude pink.

The pigmentation of these is fantastic; the texture is creamy and moussey which I really like. They dry down to be super matte and whilst this can make your lips look quite dry, they don’t actually feel drying, which is a major plus as I hate products drying out my lips. I do find they wear off in a rather unappealing way sometimes however, where bits start to flake off and separate and you get that kind of line around the inside of your lips. They don’t always do this so I can’t quite put my finger on why they do it some times and not others. I think I have much better success with them when I wear a lip-liner underneath, they don’t seem to wear off as badly so maybe that’s the secret. Application is easy as the applicator is a great shape and one dip is enough for the whole lips.

These are some of my favourite lip products and I love wearing them. They look so nice on and the colours are perfect. The packaging is really cute, I love the frosted glass, and the brand is proudly cruelty free. <3

Current 5 Favourite Everyday Lipsticks

Lipstick is one of my favourite things. It’s got to a point where I have so many that I don’t wear so I’m going to try to make a conscious effort to rotate what I’m wearing so they all get some love. However, at the moment there are certain ones I just can’t help myself but wear all the frickin time! So maybe the rotation thing won’t be happening any time soon…

Here is the current squad…

Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in Buttercup £10.50

This is a really easy to wear nude pink. It’s one of those lipsticks you can chuck on without having to think about it as it looks great and will go with most makeup looks. The formula is buttery and I’d say the finish is satin, it’s not glossy but there’s definitely shine.

Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks in Uptight and Backtalk £15 each

I’ve previously done a whole post dedicated to these lipstick when I first got them. You can read that here. Since writing that I have only grown to like them more. The comfort matte formula is so creamy and smoothing and one of the nicest I’ve ever tried. I’ve also grown more fond of the packaging which I initially didn’t really like lol.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Sandstorm £6.50

This is probably my most worn lipstick out of all of them the past couple of months! It’s a real struggle to not wear this every day! I just love the colour and the formula of these is fantastic. It definitely leans towards being a cool brown/beige which I love because of the 90s vibes, however I’d still class it as a nude because it has pinkish tones. It’s just a gorgeous colour that allows me to wear brown on my lips but in a way I am very comfortable with. Liquid suedes also last well on the lips providing you allow them to dry down fully, which does take a while.

Dose of Colors Matte Lipstick in Bare with Me £14.50

I’d call this colour a peachy, nude pink. The formula of these is also brilliant and really long-lasting. They look more matte on the lips than the NYX Liquid Suedes but this means they can make your lips look dry and enhance all the lines and cracks! However despite this they manage to actually not feel drying or uncomfortable! Bare with Me is a really pretty colour and I feel I neglected it at first because I love the other shade ‘Truffle’ so much, but I am making up for it now. 🙂
