Considering the price, pretty okay
I've had a hankering for vampy lips lately so seeing that Detail had a "black" lipstick in Gloomy, I decided to give them a try--granted I didn't have the most stellar experience with their liquid lipstick, though I am quite happy with their powder brush and Sunset palette (but that's another review). For what it's worth, the lipstick is actually okay. It swatches fine on the hand, but on the lips it does take a few good passes to get good opacity. You kind of have to let a first application set a bit first before you go over it or else it would just move the product around, and it has a more noticeable sheen than advertised. It is quite understandable for a "black" deep plum color like this to be patchy, and it would benefit a lot from a similarly colored lip liner underneath (though in 2019, if a makeup company can't do a color right, they probably just shouldn't do it lol). Kudos for the unique color though, and they do have a nice color range in general. For the price, really can't complain much!
