Liquid lipsticks are really in for the past 3 or 4 years now. It's not my usual cup of tea for the sole reason that it feels much like a lipgloss (except the matte liquid lipsticks). I didn't easily join the bandwagon.
When Digital Traincase released new products and brands, Sweetpea & Fay Cosmetics was one of them. What product in particular? Liquid lipsticks! I was like 'meh' but when they put it on sale last year, I decided to give it a try!
I actually forgot about this already because I misplaced that particular eco bag I used during the Supersale bazaar and these liquid lipsticks were in it. Found it recently when I was unpacking to pack.
I got two shades: Cannoli and Ranunculus. Cannoli is Nude Beige while Ranunculus is Nude Peach. I don't know where they got the names. It's sounds more weird than unique, IMHO.

Oh, gosh, Cannoli, anyare? Basing from the swatches, I thought I was going to like Cannoli better. But I couldn't seem to make it appear on my lips. Ranunculus is alright but it looks brighter. My iPhone can't capture the true colour of Ranunculus. But it's a pretty shade nonetheless.
This is a non-drying liquid lipstick because it's not matte. It's creamy and moisturising not to mention that it feels a tad wet - which goes back to the reason why I'm not a fan of non-matte liquid lipsticks - it's the opaque version of a lipgloss. Okay, fine, it's not entirely glossy. I'm just scared that this will run. What impressed me with this product though is that despite its being 'wet', it stayed on my lips for 4 hours. It started fading cos I was eating. I assume if I didn't eat on the 4th hour, it would've stayed longer. Regardless, I will not be repurchasing this product.
Sweetpea & Fay liquid lipstick is available at Digital Traincase [online and in their store]. Apologies as I do not remember the price of this product.
Follow me! No? Yes? Yey!
