JD Glow Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks

During my daily scroll of Instagram I saw some swatches that really grabbed my attention, the brand was JD Glow Cosmetics. A brand that I had never heard of before, but I was definitely intrigued. At the time I was on a nasty no-buy. As time went by, the brand was on my Insta newsfeed again. I began following the JD Cosmetics account which eventually lead to me placing an order. It was inevitable really, lol.

I bought highlighters, eye shadows and liquid lipsticks, which I will be showing you today.

Taken from JD Glow Cosmetics- "...They are super long lasting without drying out the lips or feathering. Our formula is very light weight, smooth and soft. You would feel as ifthough nothing was there. Goes on wet and dries to a matte finish. No streaking."






The packaging is pretty fancy. Gold coloured plastic lid with filigree pattern, there's also beading that borders the tubes. The formula of these lipsticks is a thin consistency, yet almost gel like in texture. 

The liquid lipsticks have a doe foot applicator that is quite flat. I find these good because you can use the flat side for applying the bulk of the lipstick. The thin tip can be used to apply the outer edges of the lips for more control of the lipstick placement.

They glide on the lips, making them one of the easier liquid lipsticks (that I've tried) to apply. Obviously care still needs to be taken, especially with the brighter or darker shades where application needs to be more precise. 

The lipsticks take some time to dry down, giving plenty of time for application and fixing any mistakes. I found that they remained slightly tacky and there is some transfer, albeit only slight. 

They are slightly drying but felt comfortable and light weight. Longevity is pretty good, lasting hours through drinks. Eating oily food is an enemy, but I find that the case with all liquid lipsticks that I have tried. The metallics can be a little patchy, but touching up those areas is no problem.

Now onto the lip swatches.

                               

Rosie



Desire




Crazen




Class



Pink Stiletto

Pink Stiletto was the only shade out of these JD Glow Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks that I had issue with. It took some work to get an application that wasn't patchy and I'm not that keen on the colour. One out of 5 ain't bad and it is workable.
