LA Girl Metal Liquid Lipstick Molten – Review, Swatches
If you’ve read my review on SUGAR Smudge Me Not lipstick, you’d know how amazing my experience with it was. I expected a fine experience with this too. LA Girl Metal Liquid Lipstick comes in a black tube with a deep orange color coded twist cap. The applicator is soft and doe-foot in shape which helps in easy application. This lipstick literally smells like vanilla cake, the fragrance is so sweet that you’ll want to eat it. It isn’t overpowering though. The applicator takes out a decent amount of product.
The consistency is super creamy and glides like dream on lips. It doesn’t settle into fine lines. Lips must be prepped and slightly moisturized before for a smooth application. Molten is a neon orange shade with a hint of coral. It has tiny golden shimmers. I expected it to be a deep rusty orange shade. On my dusky skin, it looks lighter and kind of neon-ish. It will look best on fair to medium skin tones. However, I adjust it with concealer around my lips and also use lesser quantity. I also use it on my lipstick sometimes for a metallic look. It has a medium buildable coverage which provides a matte finish. It brightens my lips instantly and the metallic sheen it provides is impeccable. Once applied you have 2 minutes to adjust and even out the lipstick before it dries completely. The formula is extremely lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy on lips at all.
I’ve found another way of using it: as a blush. Just dot 2-3 times on cheeks and lightly rub. You’ll have flush, illuminated cheeks in no time!
One thing I’d want to advice is to not press lips together as the pigment passes onto the lower lip. It survives lunch and heavy meals but fades from the upper lip. It lasts for 4-5 hours and fades unevenly afterward. You’ll need to retouch few times just to make sure it isn’t looking chunky.
- Creamy consistency which spreads like butter
- Smells amazing like vanilla
- Pretty coral-ish orange shade
- Comes with a convenient doe-foot applicator
- Doesn’t settle into fine lines
- Can be used a blush
- Might wash out dusky skin and it suits fair to medium skin tones more
- Fades unevenly on lips after few hours
Final Word: I got lured into the hype of metallic liquid lipsticks so purchased this one and it was not so great choice. The shade was a tad light for my dusky skin tone but I somehow worked it out. Though it will look pretty on fair and medium beauties. I discovered a new way of using it as a blush and it works. Though it has a super creamy consistency and sits comfortably on lips, I don’t like how it fades unevenly at the end of the day. So I leave it up to you to decide whether to buy this or not. If you’re into metallic liquid lipstick trend then you can give this a try.
