Welcome back to my blog, or if you’ve just come across The Disoriental:
Hello! Welcome! Come in! Have a cuppa!
So here we have it! So far we have had:
If you haven’t read the first four posts yet, you can read the series here.
I do apologise about the delay in the post - I came up with something initially but then found it to be not a fair playing ground as it was based on aesthetics- which evidently is not the best basis to judge on as some are very different shades and there are different makeup looks created- therefore, I had to come up with something more fitting…
Which one emerged as the forerunner from the fourth week??
Maybelline’s Red Passion
Maybelline’s Super Stay 24hr Lip Color in shade RED PASSION
Maybelline’s RED PASSION really had that extra oomph for me- how their applicator worked very well for my lips and the longevity of that nourishing quality. Also, considering that it is a double-end lipstick-and-balm rather than two separate tubes, it would prove more efficient when I’m on a Valentines’ date, or in the bathroom getting that lippy on right before any particular activit—
So we have our final four. What next?
I’ve decided to revisit the four liquid lipsticks and pair them up for comparison with the a 3-point experiential factor guide:
Smoothness of application (applicator + consistency + pigment)
Which lip liquid has the overall upper-hand for smoothness of application?
Degree of smudge
Which lip liquid prevails in minimal smudging?
Which lip liquid is most agreeable with removal?
Some factors had been described in length in the previous posts, which you can click to read more about!
Jeffree Star Cosmetics’ REDRUM and Lime Crime RED VELVET
Smoothness of application: JSC’s REDRUM
REDRUM's application is undeniably smooth and the applicator is well-designed for efficient application. Most importantly, the formula allows for very consistent and even application with each dip+stroke.
Degree of smudge: Lime Crime’s RED VELVET
RED VELVET’s lip liquid literally is really MINIMAL smudge, if not non-existent at all. Yes, even compared to JSC’s liquid lip.
Removal Process: JSC’s REDRUM
REDRUM’s removal is as efficient as its application - one piece of drugstore makeup wipe with standard effort is all that’s needed.
JSC’s REDRUM: 2/3
Lime Crime’s RED VELVET: 1/3
Jeffree Star Cosmetics’ REDRUM prevails!
Next week we will look at Beauty Bakerie’s CRANBERRY STILETTO and Maybelline’s RED PASSION within the 3-point guide!
So close yet so far!
Which one will be the one?
THE liquid love to accompany the love story of my life for Valentines’ day?
