Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints - Raine Fever

Oh my goodness. It has been a very long time since I blogged. Sincere apologies.
Over the last 2 months I have been exploring lipsticks and have become obsessed with liquid matte lipsticks. I bought the Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Damned but promptly returned that after the mini Instagram drama that revealed what a rude dismissive woman she is. Anyway, I discovered Coloured Raine. A black-owned cosmetics company that is vegan, cruelty free and produces some fabulous products. As I blog, I am waiting on a delivery of Roulette and Tootsie also by Coloured Raine. (Instagram, I blame you or this).

The first liquid matte lipstick I bought was Raine Fever. This is a very popular colour by Coloured Raine. I've worn this a few times and got so many compliments. More so than when I wore my Urban Decay Disturbed and Blackmail (shocker). I realised that I MUST blog about this liquid matte lipstick.

First of all this liquid matte lipstick is seriously long wearing. I am not messing about. I mean it. Removing this is not easy either. I used an oil cleanser and a warm flannel but was still left with pinkish lips! I ate proper meals and drinks and Raine Fever did not wear off one bit. I was so impressed. I've never experience this before. Now I know why people love matte lipsticks so much!

Secondly the colour is gorgeous and looks great on black and brown skin tones. It dries to a complete matte and is comfortable to wear. I recently tried the NYX lingerie lipsticks and they dried to the point where my lips were all crinkle up and stiff. Not very nice. But with Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints, this is not a problem. They dry matte very quickly and you can layer colour with no issues.
I got mine from BeautyBay (no custom taxes) and they retail for £15. Totally worth it.

I love this colour! I will definitely review Tootsie and Roulette once they arrive.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Disturbed and 24/7 Glide-On Lipliner Hex

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Hex

Vice Lipstick in Disturbed
When I heard Urban Decay was releasing 100 lipsticks I got very excited. I'm not a lipstick lover but I definitely wanted to explore the launch. Cue me watching as many swatch videos Youtube had to offer. Best one for melanin babes is this one by Sonjdra Deluxe :) She is a trooper. She wears all 100 shades!

This launch is unique as the 100 shades come in a range of finishes. Cream (the OG), Mega Matte, Comfort Matte, Sheer and Sheer Shimmer. If you have an iPhone you can download the free Urban Decay app that lets you try on all 100 shades so you can see how they will all look! I don't have an iPhone but my sister does so I kinda took over her phone for a few days as I played with the app.

Wearing Disturbed

I decided the first one I would get was Disturbed based on how great it looked on Sonjdra Deluxe. Disturbed is a Comfort-Matte. The colour is rich and glides on nicely. You can deepen the colour by layering it on if you want it to look really dark. I bought the Hex 24/7 Glide-On Lipliner in Hex to go with it. There isn't a Disturbed lipliner but Hex goes with it well.  Using a lipliner to prime my lips, Disturbed lasts AGES. I will say this, it's not easy to remove which is a testimony to the staying power.

I really like this lipstick. There's other shades I would like to get so watch this space for more posts. The Urban Decay Vice lipsticks retail for £15.00.

Do you own any of the Urban Decay Vice lipsticks? What shades are you loving?
