Liquid lip products are immensely popular now as I’m sure you all know.  I was very pleased to get this certified cruelty free and paraben free REALHER matte liquid lipstick to try along with an Expert Advice lip liner. Both products have natural ingredients and are infused with shea butter, jojoba seed oil and hyaluronic acid. The company offers eyeshadows, lipsticks, glosses and brushes too. I love the promise which is “RealHer was founded on the idea that, with each application, it can help to inspire the wearer: to be herself, to love herself, to be powerful, to rule the world. It doesn’t ask us to be perfect, to be a mother, to be a CEO, to be the perfect beautiful doll, but rather invites us to continue being ourselves, and that which defines us as an individual—and it’s liberating.” What’s even nicer is the birth of the daughter of the company’s founder influenced him to develop this brand with her in mind.   And- get this- the company donates 20% of all proceeds to charity.  

Marcia sent me I Am Loved lip liner and I Deserve The Best matte liquid lipstick that she’d received in a Boxycharm sub box. The website describes I Am Loved as a plum color and I think that description is right on the money. It glides onto your lips smoothly without any skipping. The color is very pigmented and can easily be worn as an all over lip color without an accompanying gloss or lipstick. It goes perfectly with I Deserve The Best lipstick. The website describes the color as a deep mauve. In the container the color looks more like a medium toned brownish pink. It looked that way when I first applied it to my lips. In fact, the liner was darker than the lip color upon initial application  REALHER recommends you apply the lipstick to bare lips with the wand. Allow up to 5 minutes for it to dry to its matte finish and avoid oily foods.

I have pretty dry lips so after application, I was able to see the product settle into some lip lines. Even after lining my lips with the pencil, I found it hard to ‘color within my lip shape’. I had better success when I used a lip brush and smoothed the color that way, waited the requisite 5 minutes and the product did become matte but it also became sticky. I felt it particularly if I rubbed my lips together which I tend to do. If you don’t have this habit, you won’t notice the stickiness at all.

The color seemed to darken on me to a deep mauve (just as the website stated) and matched the liner perfectly. I did avoid oily foods for lunch and there was no transfer onto my smoothie cup.

    Thanks for sharing the link. It looks like a wonderful store/ I already spied a palette I like!

  2. Dana Rodriguez says:

    These sound really nice! I think I would love the I Deserve The Best matte liquid lipstick.

  3. Stacey Roberson says:

    The color is amazing – I always try to go for the darker colors, because the brights wash my face out. I love that their products are cruelty and paraben free.

  4. A liquid lipstick with hyaluronic acid. Interesting! I would love to try this!

  5. gloria patterson says:

    Interesting there are so many different lip products and ways of applying some times I feel like I am lost. I really like this color

  6. Mauve is my favorite color of lip liner. I usually apply a really light base of shea butter to my lips so product goes on better since my lips tend to be dry as well. I prefer a matte lipstick rather than a glistening or shiny lip color, as many liquid lip colors can be.

  7. I gravitate towards this kind of color – beautiful! Sounds like a brand I need to check out for sure!!!

  8. This sounds interesting, and there are a few other products in the site that caught my attention. I definitely need to pick up a few things!

  9. I rub my lips together a lot, so the stickiness might not work for me :-/

  10. My Nail Polish Obsesion says:

    Pretty color. Sounds like a nice brand.

  11. So beautiful! I have one of their lipsticks and it’s gorgeous 🙂

  12. Ehmkay nails says:

    Prices? It’s helpful to see prices in posts. I love matte lippies but some are really expensive!

  13. This color is so universally flattering!
