Swatches


Check out my video for lip swatches:

___________
Pure Hollywood - Nude Beige Pink
This a nude shade and it's the lightest shade I got.

I feel like it doesn't complement my skin tone as well as the others but I can make it work by using a lip liner.
___________
Electric Coral - Intense Coral

This coral shade is so vibrant!


I don't have any lipstick this shade, so I'm glad I got it.



___________
American Doll - True Red 

This is a red lipstick with blue undertone. I love red lipsticks, so this one was a must-have for me!



It looks quite similar to Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Outlaw.



___________
Vintage - Royal Purple  

Vintage is a beautiful purple shade! I really like this one!



It reminds of MAC Heroine but it's darker.


___________
Sad Girl - Deep Burgundy with Purple Iridescence 
This is a deep plum with metallic finish. I love it!


I find it's a little messy when applied alone, so I'd definitely recommend a lip liner. The one I used MAC lip liner in Vino.

Review
I really like these liquid lipsticks! I'm impressed with the shade range. I want to buy all of them! The formula is good too! I don't find it too drying but I'd recommend exfoliating and moisturizing before applying. I'd also suggest using lip liners especially for the shades that are darker.
Some of the shades do stain the lips but they're fairly easy to remove. Any waterproof makeup remover would work or oil! 
Pros 
    • Creamy: These go on so smoothly
    • Matte: These dry down to matte finish
    • Long wearing: These are long wearing but do come off if you eat oily/greasy food
    • Little or no transfer
Cons
    • Expensive: For the amount of product you get (0.11 oz). Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid lipsticks cost a dollar less and you get double the amount of product (0.22 oz).

  1. Wanted to just say that KVD is measured in fluid oz or mL (volume) whereas ABH is measured in oz or g (a measurement of mass). Fluid oz is not the same as oz and so can't be compared directly. You'd have to find the density of of one product (g/mL) and convert it to compare the 2 products directly. Just eyeballing, KVD does not look like 2x the size of ABH. I think it's safe to say that they're probably about equal in the amount of product you're getting.
