Dose of Colors Liquid Lipsticks go like freakin' hotcakes on Beauty Bay. Like, a day, and everything nude and berry is gone. Boom. No more. I was quick-fire enough to pick up two of these babies a while ago, and I've been giving them a thorough road test for the last few weeks.
You'll know by now about my limited/mixed success and definite mixed feelings on the whole liquid lipstick thing (If you don't, check out previous loves and hates on the liquid lipstick front), but I'm a glutton for dry-lipped punishment, and just keep testing these in the hope that, one day, I'll get it. I really liked Kat Von D's offering recently as a genuinely matte option that doesn't give you the cat's-bum lips situation, but I'd heard rave stuff about Dose of Colors' formula. I'm subjecting my lips once again to potential arid displeasure - don't say I'm not good to you.

Thankfully - I needn't have worried.
Apart from the super-delicious cakey-vanilla scent, Dose Of Colors have managed to make a really great formula here. These have a pleasant, creamy-mouse texture when applied, and have a much longer dry-down period than, say, Colourpop Ultra Mattes or Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks. This allows for a little correction on application, and generally makes them much more forgiving on a slightly more textured lip than one full of fillers and Instagrammed out of its life.

I find these relatively comfortable to wear, seriously long lasting and minimally drying, which is a mega plus. They seem to fade pretty evenly too, with no weird white mouth-ring syndrome (phew) and no flaking or bunching up in the corners of the lips.
I was seriously impressed with these, and will definitely be picking up more in future!
Have you tried any of these liquid lipsticks?
