Hello my Lippie Loves! Here is a Review of Glory’s Glo 12 hour semi-matte liquid lipstick in the shade “Love Muffin” which is a blue based Cherry Red. (Click here to shop!)
First off the packaging is super cute with the little hearts and it says “Glo Stix” on it which is a cute little pun! I like that there are instructions on the side of the box for newbies like me to understand how to use this! It’s cruelty-free, also comes with .14oz of product.
Now I’m not sure why it calls itself a semi-matte because it’s extremely matte once it dries! This is also a shade I could see working for most skin tones!
When I followed the instructions of using a balm first then doing a second layer to intensify the color, I had problems. It was super messy getting all over me including my teeth and somehow under my chin! Also with the second layer it would come off very easily when eating, drinking, or when I kissed my hand to test it.
So here is what you do to make it work: the balm is optional, if you do use balm use a lightweight formula and do NOT put on a second layer of the liquid lipstick. Yes it gives it a nice darkened shade but it will come off whereas the first coat is perfectly pigmented and mess free!
It does feel a little sticky even when it’s dried but it becomes fully matte to a beautiful color that doesn’t feather in its process of drying. The blue tone to this shade ensures your teeth will not give off a yellow sheen. Also it’s such a statement shade everyone will notice! I got a lot of compliments when wearing this. I used a lip balm over it to help the removing of the color from my lips which left a nice stain on my lips for a hint of color.
Overall it’s a great color to spice up your day or night plus it is easy to carry in your purse!
Stay tuned for more reviews from me!
