Liquid lipsticks are big right now and its no wonder. Not only are they long-lasting but they are really comfortable to wear. However, a lot of the time they can be pretty drying to the lips. With this in mind, I didnt really have high expectations when trying these eBay liquid lipsticks for only 0.99p! The sleek plastic tubes and long applicator makes the product look more expensive than it is. The shade range is also vast and caters to a variety of tastes, but I decided to play it safe with one bold lip and one nude one.

My first impressions when applying this was a pleasant surprise. The application was easy, the formula was light but best of all, the pigmentation was amazing. You only need one layer of this to get the colour you want, and it doesn't feel heavy on the lips either. You can build it up, but I wouldn't recommend applying too many coats as on me the product did start to gather and stick on the particularly dry areas on my lips as I added more layers.

The thing to note is that they don't dry down completely. They do dry down, but not to a completely matte finish as you can still feel a slightly sticky texture on the lips. However, the lasting power is good, as they last a good 3-4 hours before they wear down. Unfortunately, they don't fade evenly and start to fade from the middle, leaving an awkward outline on the edge of my lips where the product had dried. 

I find the lighter pink shade better than the purple in terms of formula, as the patchiness when it fades isn't as obvious as that of the purple one. You can also build it up more without too much of a problem. The purple shade however, needs to be applied with a bit more care, seeing as it is a darker colour and so I find it can be slightly harder to work with.  

Overall, for the price I do think these liquid lipsticks are pretty great for what they are. The application, colour, and wear are all good, but as noted above there are some problems in regards to fading and patchiness throughout the day. I should also note that although they are a bargain from eBay, they are shipped over from China, and so are likely to have been tested unethically on animals, something I didn't realise at the time of purchase. I probably wouldn't repurchase again simply for that reason, especially since for a few more pounds you can buy great liquid lipsticks from brands like NYX, Loreal, Maybelline, Rimmel, etc. that are ethically produced and great quality. 

I hope this review helped, let me know if you've tried these, or if you could recommend any other liquid lipsticks that are a must-have.
