I recently received a package from the brand Coloured Raine in exchange for a review. I was eager to try the liquid lipsticks contained within the package. I received a variety of liquid lipsticks that have matte and glossy finishes. Coloured Raine was founded in 2013 by Loraine Dowdy. The brand is cruelty-free. This is the first time I’ve tried cosmetics from the brand, and I instantly fell in love with the lipsticks!
The packages are stunningly beautiful. Each liquid lipstick comes in a lightweight, transparent tube that displays the lipstick’s true colour. I adore the hot pink details that adorn the top of the lipstick cover and transcend down the tube. Each lipstick is lightweight and travel-friendly. The lipstick wand is longer than other wands I’ve tried, but it has a doe foot applicator.
I received four lipsticks – three of the shades are matte, and one is a lacquer formula. The shades are described below:
- Cherry Blossom Lip Lacquer – A bright, blue-based red
- Mars Liquid Lipstick – Dusty rose
- Nude Liquid Lipstick – Burnt sienna with a pale brown undertone
- Roulette Liquid Lipstick – Royal purple
Coloured Raine’s lipsticks have one of the best formulas that I’ve tried recently. The shade Cherry Blossom has a glossy formula that feels slightly sticky upon initial application. It dries down to a glossy finish that is smooth. However, it is not as long-wearing as the matte shades. Each of the matte lipsticks is highly pigmented, and do not flake or fade with wear. The matte shades are opaque, long-wearing, and not patchy.
Each lipstick is opaque, pigmented and comfortable on the lips. I always apply my lipstick over a lip pencil, and the matte shades wear for 6-8 hours without fading or flaking. I tested the shade Cherry Blossom for the first time yesterday. Because it is a lacquer formula, it transfers easily. However, the shade fades into a beautiful popsicle-pout stain that lasts for an additional 1-2 hours.
I am very impressed with the quality, wear, and formula of Coloured Raine’s Liquid Lipsticks! If you are looking for an affordable, high-quality liquid lipstick I would definitely recommend this brand. Stay tuned for additional reviews! Coloured Raine’s Matte Liquid Lipsticks retail for $17 while the Lip Lacquers retail for $15. Each lipstick is available from Coloured Raine’s official website.
