Reviews of my new goodies continue roll out with today’s look at the new Laura Geller Luscious Lips Liquid Lipsticks. I’ve mentioned this before, but liquid lipsticks aren’t exactly my favorite type of lip product. There’s something magical about applying a traditional bullet that will always have my heart. That being said, I can’t deny that the world of liquids, tubes and doe foot applicators offers much to covet. I’ve discovered quite a few brilliant formulas over the years. Do the Laura Geller versions make the cut?
Although Cherry Almond, a rose nude, has been available for some time (as part of kits), five new shades were added to the range: Peach Buttercream, Candy Pink, Fuchsia Fever, Cherry Sorbet and Chili Spice.
According to Laura Geller, her liquid lipsticks are formulated with Vitamin E and a special texturizing gel that offers high pigment, full coverage and long wear. They promise to glide on as a liquid and dry down to a weightless, semi-matte finish that is never drying or sticky. The word “stain” is never mentioned.
Fuschia Fever (Warm, hot pink)
Chili Spice (Vampy, brown red)
Now about the formula and claims. If I were to compare these to other liquid lipstick type products I’ve tried, I’d say they are similar to the Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lacquers in texture (creamy) but much, much lighter. In fact, I think these Laura Geller liquid lipsticks are the lightest weight lip products I’ve ever used. They are even lighter than the Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stains.
Application is a dream. They go on evenly with full pigment in one coat. No settling into lines, no creasing. Lips look healthy. What’s even better, you can continue to build and build without worrying about creating texture issues or the pigment breaking down. No need to wait for “coats to dry” either. And it continues to feel lightweight no matter how much you add! I sat there for at least five minutes adding layer after layer in utter amazement.
Upon initial application and for an hour or so afterwards, the formula feels moderately moisturizing and has the kind of slip a traditional lipsticks would have. Basically you can rub your lips together without disrupting its appearance. At about the 2 hour mark, the slip is gone and the product has dried down to a matte “stain-like” appearance but does not feel drying. Chili Spice did leave a very slight “ring around the lips” as it began to fade (4 -5 hours without eating), while Fuchsia Fever faded evenly. I’m not one that minds reapplying lipstick, but I always make note of wear-time when a product claims to be long-wearing for the purposes of the review.
To summarize, the *Laura Geller Luscious Lips Liquid Lipsticks are creamy and comfortable on the lips. They are moderately long-wearing offering the high-pigment and weightless formula promised. The finish begins somewhere between semi-matte and satin, ending on more of a matte note. Do I recommend them? Yes.
