I have been vocal on my relationship of disappointments with liquid lipsticks. I don’t like it when they are heavy, or too liquid, or too crackly and I have seldom found formulas that work for me. Till recently, that is.
Dose of Colours as a brand is not available in store in UAE. I heard about their liquid lipsticks from YouTube and saw this bundle on sale on glamazle.com and thought it was worth ordering. I am so darn glad that I did!!
The colours in this bundle are all neutral and wearable. The undertones are very flattering. The bottle is glass with some weight to it which feels nice. The texture is mousse like but whipped and light and spreads like a dream on the lips. Almost a mix between Jouer and Huda Beauty, if that makes sense. The colours you see are the colours that they dry down to, which is nice for a change.
Swatches are bottom to top: Mondaze, Los Anjealous, Knock on wood, Truffle and Cork.
The smell is a wonderful vanilla cake and not overpowering or artificial. The doe foot applicator is very comfortable and does a great job. Also, the product doesn’t drip out of the tube if you hold it upside down (aka one of my issues with Huda Lipsticks).
Speaking of Huda liquid lipsticks- the packaging bottle and doe foot and smell seem to be eerily similar or derived from Dose. Bit strange, but really I find the Dose Lipsticks to be much better wear wise, comfort and colour wise as well.
They do dry down but don’t crumble off and look better even when they fade.
I have definitely found a favourite brand here.
