Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paint in Sugar

No comments :
Coloured Raine is a brand I recently came across in my search for more awesome kiss-proof liquid lipsticks. I had been looking for dupes for Lime Crime's Cashmere Velvetine, as it's constantly sold out and I'm not really too keen on ordering from them after all this security drama. For some reason a lot of swatches I saw of this looked like it - but this is more of a true nude while Cashmere is greyish. Coloured Raine does have a color called Marshmallow that looks closer to it, but unfortunately that is currently sold out as well! At any rate, this is still a great product!

The packaging here is pretty standard. It comes in a clear tube so that you can see the color, and has a small doe foot applicator.
The product goes on creamy and smooth, and I find that I can apply it just fine with the applicator. It feels slightly sticky for the first few minutes of wear, but then it gets more comfortable. I can definitely get all day wear out of this, it does not transfer or kiss off, but it is pretty drying. Using a lip balm over it doesn't affect the color or wear time, so that is what I have been doing to make it more comfortable!

It looks much darker in the tube and swatched on my arm than it does on my lips, which surprised me. I love the color though, because it is a perfect nude for me - not too light and just dark enough to not make me look sickly! If you are pale skinned and looking for a nice nude, this one is a great one for you.
