I'm really into lipstick at the moment.
That's why when Nur Besten offered to send me a few bits, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try some of their new lipsticks. If you don't know about Nur Besten I suggest you check out my first collaboration post I did with them a little while ago where I did a rather large beauty haul.
Anyway, back to the lipsticks. Lately, I've been loving matte lipsticks so I thought I would pick myself up four. These lipsticks are all by a brand called QiBest, which I had never heard of before, but after doing a little research I have found that they're a Chinese cosmetics company who seem to do a very popular fiber lash mascara. So, after reading a few reviews, I thought I'd give their lipsticks a try.
I must admit that I was quite surprised to see that the packaging was of pretty good quality considering the prices of the products were on the cheaper side. The lipsticks I chose were all labelled as long lasting water proof liquid lipsticks by QiBest.
So the fours shades I got were a violet (612), red (606), mauve (607) and nude (602). When I saw them on the website I was most excited about the violet shade however once I received them I instantly fell in love with the mauve and nude shades.
As you can see when swatched the lipsticks all seem a little different from each other in consistency. I found the violet shade was rather fluid in comparison to the others, so when I put it on my lips I found that I had to put on at least two coats to get a good coverage. The red and nude shades have a slightly thicker formula than the violet shade however are still a little bit sheer for me. The one that completely knocked it out of the park for me was the mauve. After just one coat I have complete full coverage.
Although, they don't all have the same consistency in formula, there is one thing I would say that they do all have in common; staying power. Honestly, the staying power of these lipsticks is crazy! They easily last a twelve hour day with eating and drinking. You don't even have to top up. One tip I would give you if you purchase these lipsticks though is that you remove them with a oil based make-up remover. Just because they are waterproof lipsticks and regular make-up remover just doesn't seem to cut it.
