One of my favorite lipsticks is from the Turkish brand Golden Rose. It’s the Cosmetics’s Velvet Matte Lipstick in shade 20. Why? Well, because not only because I’m extremely pleased with the colour, it’s also absolutely high quality for a budget lipstick! It’s probably even one of the best affordable matte formulas that is available. I somehow lost this lipstick though and since I used to wear it a lot I decided to treat myself on a new one. After all a girl can’t go without her favourite lipstick, right? But when I stood before the stand in Cevahir, one of the biggest shoppingmalls from Europe and the closest mall from my appartement, something went wrong.. I just couldn`t help myself and bought not one, but two liquid lipsticks instead of the one I came for. And that was only because I didn’t have enough money to buy all the colours, because I seriously felt in love with this product.
The Longstay Liquid Matte Lipstick is a long lasting, full-coverage and non-transfer liquid matte lipstick. It’s enriched with Vitamin E and Avocado oil to leave your lips soft and without feeling sticky. The texture is quite creamy and smooth and doesn’t leave your lips dry at all. The formula is really lightweight and applies really thin as well. One layer is enough because the lipsticks are quite pigmented. If you want a more intens look you can easily apply a second layer. A third layer is going to be quite difficult because you can’t really build up with this product.
The lipstick glide easily over your lips which makes it easy to apply. On a down side this makes it also kinda difficult to get a straight line since it’s not easy to control. After applying the formula dries very fast, within less then a minute. The biggest plus on this lipsticks is the fact that they actually are really long lasting. I can easily wear them up for 6/7 hours without smudging or fading away. But I must say that if you eat it starts to fade fast and you`ll need a touch-up right away, especially when eating something oily.
You can get the Longstay Liquid Matte Lipstick in twelve different colours. I got the lipstick in two different shades; #05 and #07. Longstay Liquid Matte Lipstick #05 is a nice dark berry and Longstay Liquid Matte Lipstick #07 is a bright pink. I choose the berry one because that was the colour I originally came for (uh-uh) and the pink one seemed just very nice with summer coming up. Both shades have a really matt finish which I really like. Overall I think this liquid lipsticks are really great budget products.
