Dose of Colors Matte Lipsticks

Dose of Colors has a couple of matte liquid lipsticks. Each lipstick retails for $18 USD and contains about 0.16 oz of product. You can buy these liquid lipsticks on Dose of Colors website
Product Details
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty-Free
  • Gluten-Free 
  • Paraben-free 
I wanted them for quite some time now but they were always soldout and they finally restocked them, so I bought them in a bundle of 6 for $93 and paid about $10.95 shipping to Canada.
You can watch my video for lip swatches and review:





Finish: Matte 
Application: These go on so smoothly. The doe foot application gives a more precise application. I don't wear lip liners with these. They do get on the teeth but once these set, they don't move. They feel slightly dry on the lips but don't dry out the lips. So far these are the least drying liquid matte lipsticks I've tried.
Wear Time: Although they do transfer a bit, they do last long on the lips. These can last up to 4-6 hours if you avoid greasy food. Some shades do stain the lips (Merlot, Kiss of Fire, Berry Me 2).
Purple Rain
This is a bright purple. I find it's a little too bright for my personal taste, so it's my least favorite of them all.

Pinky Promise

This is a bright pink lipstick. I love this one!

Kiss of Fire
This is another pink shade but not as bright as Pinky Promise. It looks quite similar to Merlot but it's more pinkish.

This is quite similar to Kiss of Fire but I personally prefer Merlot because it's slightly deeper and appears reddish.

Berry Me
This is a deep berry plum shade and it's my favorite out of all of them! 

Berry Me 2
This is another shade that I wear a lot. It's a brighter berry shade.
