BLK Cosmetics Long – Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick (BRAZEN)

January 22, 2019

A very happy 2019 to you guys! I know It’s been a while since I last posted, due to busy schedules at work.

Today’s first post for 2019 is a quick review of a liquid lipstick that I’ve been in love with. I was previously using Colourpop’s Ulra Matte lip in the shade “ARRIBA”, and although I love the consistency, I think the BLK’s shade suites me more.

 

BLK Cosmetics

Is a makeup brand that was launched by Anne Curtis, a Celebrity & TV Host in the Philippines.

Why blk cometics? “It stands for the color black—something timeless, elegant, and uncomplicated,” explains Anne. But unlike other cosmetic products, blk aims to stand out by going back to basics.

BLK cosmetics is a cruelty free brand (certified by PETA) which I 100% support. Their aim is to stand out as the easy choice by giving their customers the best of both worlds: premium quality and friendly price points.

BLK also claims their products guarantee hours of flawless wear, so touch-ups can be one less thing for you to worry about.

Review

Long Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade BRAZEN

Retails for 349 PHP.

I do love the packaging. It’s simple & has a classy vibe to it. Plus the weight of the product is light.

Long Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade BRAZEN

This liquid lipstick uses a doe foot applicator.

The color payoff is really nice & dries to a soft matte finish. This shade flatters my complexion which is why I keep using this in my makeup look for work.

Active Ingredient: Rose Hip Seed Oil/ Vitamin E

Applying one layer is actually good enough to get a subtle look. Two layers on the other hand, gives you a medium cherry color.

It has a creamy light consistency, not too heavy on the lips. I did have to apply the lipstick quickly as it dries out easily.

Although they have claimed this product is transfer proof & long lasting, sadly It was the first thing that I noticed while testing it out during a 12 hour shift at work. While eating, the color fades easily which means you have to reapply.

It did dry out by lips a bit, but applying lip balm before applying the product solves the problem.

The product lasted on my lips for a good 6-7 hours before reapplying.

 

PROS

  • Good color pay off
  • Cruelty Free
  • Great Packaging
  • Affordable 
  • Creamy Matte Consistency – Lightweight 
  • Contains Vitamin E and Rose Hip Seed Oil

CONS

  • Lasting power is average
  • Not transfer proof

 

I will still keep using this product because the color is amazing, but I will also keep in mind to apply lip balm before using it to avoid dry flakey skin.

If you’re interested in trying out, you can purchase on their website (International shipping) or in SM Stores in the Philippines.

    Love matte lipsticks and especially if they stay on. I’ve never heard of this brand and the packaging reminds me of MAC packaging. I’ll check Amazon.
