Described as a beige-brown with a glittery/metallic finishThis was not as opaque as I was expecting, more of a gloss with lots of glitters.

OVERALL

These metallic lipsticks can be worn alone, or on top of your favourite lip liner/lipstick and if I were to rank these brands based on overall performance, it will be:

  1. Ofra
  2. Colourpop
  3. Too Faced

Coloupop has the advantage when it comes to price but I still chose Ofra as my no. 1 because they are the creamiest and most comfortable to wear. It may have faded after having meals but left a good stain and reapplication was not a problem.As for my pick amongst these 6 shades, it will be Ofra’s Santorini because even after this trend ends, I can still wear it.

The trend for summer 2016 is all about the metallics – golds & rose golds in particular and  honestly, they are not my cup of tea. After testing these, I’m really convinced that I’m a  liquid matte lipstick lady.😄
