Fledgling US brand Vanatei Cosmetics created their own line of ultra long-wearing, high-quality liquid lipsticks after being left frustrated by the existing mattes on the market. Their cruelty-free Matte Liquid Lipsticks promises to be richly pigmented, non-flaky, long-lasting, smudge-proof, and kiss-proof. Each color dries to a matte finish in seconds, without being sticky after application!
I first came across Vanatei two years ago. They had only a few shades then and didn't support international shipping. But I've been wanting to try their products since then because I liked the colors and they claim to be highly pigmented and lasts 24h. I chose Kali Kiss because I have been after this shade from the moment I first laid eyes on it at Vanatei's website. It's a beautiful warm pink that is perfectly suitable for any skin tone. What I love about this color is its versatility. It can be worn anytime, anywhere and it gives you that sweet, flirty appeal. Application was superb. True to its claims, the product is highly pigmented, achieving full coverage with just one layer. It applied smoothly and evenly with no streakiness. It dried to this beautiful matte finish that is so lightweight that I forgot I was wearing lipstick. It lasted throughout the day with minimal to almost no transfer. Of course, when I ate something oily, it activated the lipstick to its liquid form and started to feel sticky. After eating, there is minimal wear beginning at the center of my lips. But it was easily corrected by re-applying.over 1 year ago
