A bunch of Cailyn liquid matte lipstick swatches & mini reviews

Cailyn has stepped up thier liquid lipstick game. Earlier they offered a flat matte version, recently they launched Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet which is a more comfortable matte, Star Wave Glitter Tint which sparkles and Star Wave Mattalic Tint which gives a liquid metal look. I have a few mixed ones here to show you, let’s dig deeper and see if they deliver!

A great thing to mention by the way, these lipsticks are all eye safe so even if you don’t like a certain colour on your lips you can do a yummy eyeliner or eyeshadow look with these! One of the great pros with these smudge proof liquid lippies.

My lippies are from Swedish Pure Cosmetic, you can order them internationally at cailyncosmetics.com.

The applicator is a flat flexible spatula-like thing. Much easier to use than a classic doe foot in my opinion! It’s also very non-furry. Am I the only one who has a problem with furry applicators creating uneven edges? Haha

cailyn pure lust extreme matte tint + velvet swayable (47) swatch

Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in Swayable (47). A matte wine red metallic. Feels super thin and soft on the lips, not thick and gunky at all. Needs a thin second coat along the edges to look fully opaque on the lips, but it dries so perfect you won’t feel it. The wear on this one is crazy! It beat all these other three shades. I didn’t think I liked full on metallic lips but this one changed my mind. I can just imagine how it would look as an eyeliner.. Yum.

cailyn star wave glitter tint gemini (01) swatch

Cailyn Star Wave Glitter Tint in Gemini (01). A sheer mauve pink with chunky gold glitter. Ohhh gurl just no. The colour is horrible on me, the formula is gritty as a sand paper and it just looks like 90′s kids makeup. Did I mention that the glitter crusted off within minutes? No, just…. no.

cailyn star wave glitter tint aquarius (07) swatch

Cailyn Star Wave Glitter Tint in Aquarius (07). A dark blue with blue glitter. This one I have very mixed thoughts about. I love, LOVE the colour, like LOVE love love. But the glitter crusts off this one aswell and it doesn’t feel comfortable at all. BUT I LOVE HOW IT LOOKS? Argh.

cailyn star wave mattalic tint sirius (12) swatch

Cailyn Star Wave Mattalic Tint in Sirius (12). A dark cool toned grey with a soft silver sheen. Now we’re talking again! This formula is said to be liquid metallic, somehow I think this one is more on the matte side than the velvety red one shown above? But that’s just technicalities, the formula itself is divine! Another thin, smooth finish and it is fully opaque in one coat. I really like how it’s kind of an off black, it makes it look softer while still super graphic. Love.

Tropical Garden

Today I went nuts with this years IsaDora summer products. Everything IsaDora listed in this look are brand new and either from the Tropical Paradise or Sunkissed Bronzing Makeup collection. The eyeshadow palette in Tropical Garden is the definite star product, the combination of this electric blue and luminous green with the shimmery neutrals is just perfect! I matched the bottom lashes and waterline to the electric shades, and for that final pop of light I added NYX Mermaid to the inner corner. Beamin’!

Underage Red

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in the colour Underage Red has been a staple for me lately, it’s a bright red with what I think looks like a drop of coral pink. It just brightens the face and with the super matte finish it stays on the lips foooorever.

The cheek combo is a great one aswell, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso is a light golden apricot shade and when layered with the oldie NARS Highlighting Blush in Albatross which is a suuuper strong pale greenish gold it turns into pure tropical sunlight on ze face.
