Today is my birthday! Every year I buy myself a little birthday treat.
I showed a sneak peek last week on my Instagram:
I’ve been wanting to order from Black Moon Cosmetics since the very first time that I saw their liquid to matte lipsticks on InstaGram. My package arrived in a plain black box, but upon opening it, I was amazed at the detail of the mailer box:
And here’s the packaging for the two liquid to matte lipsticks that I ordered, the packaging is STUNNING!
I love that the ingredients list is printed on the box.
Also, they are cruelty free and vegan!
Now onto the lipsticks themselves!
I chose two of the Liquid to Matte Lipsticks, the first one is Selene.
The second one is Wrath:
Isn’t the packaging beautiful?
Ok, now onto the swatching and review!
Selene is described as “A beautiful deep plum with a gorgeous soft purple pearlescent sheen” and Wrath is “The perfect combination of mauve with a hint of pink and a touch of brown”
Here’s what it says on the website:
Black Moon Cosmetics has been striving for the past year to bring the finest quality ingredients and the most pigmented colors to grace your pretty face — starting with our amazing line of Liquid to Matte lipsticks. We have made sure every detail is accounted for from our beautifully mysterious packaging to our amazingly unique formula. Our formula’s uniqueness starts from our creamy, whipped texture allowing for buttery smooth application, to our incredibly moisturizing qualities leaving your pout so soft! Our flexible formula does not allow for any cracking or crumbling, it stays put for 5+ hours with no lip liner needed, is kiss-proof, and smells like a freshly baked vanilla cake!
As I’ve said before, most matte lipsticks (whether liquid or in stick form) make my lips want to fall off, so I was taking a chance on ordering these two Liquid to Matte Lipsticks. But as described, they are creamy, and the texture is whipped, almost mousse-like which makes application easy, and the wear is actually comfortable.
Both Selene and Wrath have a four to five hour wear time for me so far, and did not flake or wear off. I really thought that I would need a lip liner for the darker of the two shades, Selene, but there was no bleeding or feathering along the lip line.
I love both shades, but will probably get the most wear out of Wrath. I’m so happy that I finally got my hands on these liquid to matte lipsticks from Black Moon Cosmetics! ❤
Here's another photo because the first swatch photo didn't really capture the metallic sheen of Selene, Wrath got a little rubbed on the edges from my sweater sleeve before it was fully dried down, I didn't have this problem on my lips though.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
Disclosure: I purchased these things!
