For a while, I managed to refrain from purchasing lipsticks as my collection was getting too much to handle, and I felt like some might go to waste. The last time I purchased a lipstick was actually last December, before my prom, so holding out six months must be a new personal record!
The first liquid lipstick is the Kylie Lip Kit in 'Dolce K'. Yes, I did jump on the bandwagon for this lipstick, but I fell in love with it after an MUA used it on me, and it's honestly been worth the hype! I just love the packaging for this lipstick, so versatile and distinguishable.
The next lipstick is a Too Faced Melted lipstick in 'Fig', which was a present from my friend who recently went to New York! I already knew I'd love the lipstick, because I adore the one I have in 'Berry'.
The applicator for 'Dolce' is a typical doe foot applicator, which I think is quite suitable for this type of lipstick. It also allows for easy application, and if you've ever used a liquid lipstick, you'll know how quickly application can go pear shaped!
For 'Fig', the applicator is so useful, It's a soft sponge applicator, which also allows for a quick and easy application. If you're new to the world of liquid lipsticks (or even makeup), then this lipstick is definitely a great one to start with.

As 'Dolce' is a matte lipstick, the consistency is quite drying. I usually prep my lips with some Vaseline to ensure the canvas is smooth and hydrated for a perfect application. Although it can feel dry, it doesn't dry out my lips or leave them dry once I remove it, surprisingly!
(TIP: Apply some Vaseline before taking off a matte lipstick as it makes removal a lot easier!)
As for 'Fig', the consistency is not dry at all. As it is not matte, it doesn't even really need much prep, which makes me love this lipstick for everyday use as I can pop it on whenever and don't have to worry about it looking dry. This also makes removal easy too!
'Dolce' is a beautifully pigmented lipstick, I know this lipstick is going to last a long time, as you only need one swipe of the lipstick to last you the night! The colour pay off makes the lipstick well worth the price, in my humble opinion.
'Fig' has such a beautiful colour pigmentation! The picture shows it up as being a bright pink, whereas it's more of a mauvey-pink in real life. I wore it for a day of shopping with my friend, and it was still on at the end of the day, even though I had eaten and drank while wearing it.
I adore both of these lipsticks. 'Dolce' has been my go to for nights out, and 'Fig' has been my go to for daytime wear. I would even go as far to say that they have taken the place of my MAC lipsticks!
