Hello. My name is Kiana and I’m addicted to lipsticks. Seriously, I LOVE lipsticks and I’m always looking to grow my collection. I’ve decided I would share reviews and swatches of some of my lipsticks by starting a new series on the blog: Lipstick Fridays! I’m starting this series with a review of Dose of Colors.
Dose of Colors
I have been a huge fan of liquid lipsticks for a while now. I’m always trying out new lipsticks from different brands to find out which formula I really like. One brand I’ve been eyeing for a while is now is Dose of Colors. I finally decided to try out one of their lippies when I saw their limited edition release of the shade Black Rose.
Dose of Colors is a brand that creates cruelty-free cosmetics. I’ve seen pictures all over Instagram flaunting their makeup, especially their highly pigmented lippies in beautiful shades.
Black Rose Liquid Lipstick
The lipstick arrived in this limited edition packaging. I love that the tube has a frosted effect. The color is a nice, dark maroon.
The lipstick applicator is a flocked doe foot applicator, which is a different shape than most of the other applicators I’ve used. Because of the shape, it was a little harder for me to get used to applying it without accidentally overlining my lips.
Overall, I loved how the lipstick applied! It applied so smooth and the formula is not drying, but actually quite creamy. It is also very pigmented. Below is a swatch on my arm with just one application.
I also tested the wear time of this lipstick. Below is a photo I took after applying the lipstick.
I took another photo about 6 hours later. This was after eating and drinking on top of wear and I’d say the lipstick held up pretty well. There was just slight feathering and some lipstick loss on the inside of my mouth.
The lipstick dried matte pretty quickly, although it’s not completely transfer-proof.
Overall, I’m a huge fan of this formula and color and I’ll definitely have to try more lipsticks from Dose of Colors. It’s been one of my go-to’s ever since I received it.
Are you a fellow lipstick fanatic? Have you tried any of the liquid lipsticks from Dose of Colors? Would you rock this color?
