It is officially my favourite blog post time. It’s liquid lipstick review time. Today I’m bringing a liquid lipstick which I haven’t actually tried before and have put off purchasing for a long time. It’s the Morphe Liquid in the colour JUJU (love the name).
Okay so right off the bat, I do have to apologise for the photography quality being pretty rubbish as my Macbook charger has broken so I am sharing my fiance’s chromebook which unfortunately doesn’t have a USB port so I’m having to take all of my photos on a poopy IPhone until I can bring myself to spend another 80 pounds on a charger (Apple you are devil spwn). So there is my apology, now onto the review.
I purchased this product where I purchase the majority of my makeup and that is Beauty Bay for only 9 pounds.Now 9 pounds is an Okay price for a liquid lipstick I’d say especially as Morphe are known for being good quality just slightly cheaper. I’ve bought a number of products from Morphe previously but they have only been Eyeshadow Palettes and brushes so this was exciting to try something that wasn’t eye related. All of these products have been wonderful and I have never had a problem with anything I have ever bought and I’ve heard a bunch of good feedback online about the liquid lipsticks. I’m always sceptical about Morphe code pushers but you can’t take everything with a pinch of salt and my previous experiences have been super positive.
The actual product is pretty cute. It comes in a cardboard box which is usually done by the higher end products as opposed to drugstore which usually is just the product. In regards to the actual tube, it is pretty basic but Morphe are known for basic packaging with their simple mirrorless eyeshadow palettes so you can’t say anything about that. It’s just a clear tube with a black screw lid and A bright red M on the top of the lid which is a really nice touch. The dofer applicator is pretty similar to the Jeffree Star and Kylie lip kits with the slanted applicator. Personally I prefer flat dofer applicators but I think the Morphe one is a overall preferred one so I’m not going to complain about that.
The first bad thing that I did actually notice about this Lipstick is the difference of colour online and in person. This is the colour that Beauty Bay promoted JUJU as this.
It’s a slightly purple toned Blue but in person it looked like this.
It’s literally just a purple so I was slightly disappointing because I love the deep blue that it was promoted as.
It didn’t really get any better when I put it on, I was actually rather disappointed with the formula too. When all ofthe big beauty YouTubers were promoting this product a lot of them focused on how long lasting it was and how non-moving it was and there was definitely a reason. It kinda felt like paint on my lips. It did have a very drying feeling and wasn’t really my cup of tea. I understand that cheaper products aren’t going to be as high quality as say a 15, 20 pound lipstick but there are plenty of drugstore products with much nicer formulas. The nyx liquid lipsticks are much cheaper and the formula is one of my favourites.
Overall, I was disappointed with this lipstick because of the Reputation and what people had been saying but not because of the price. Also the versatility of the colours is super cool, I love quirky colours and usually will buy one of two colours form each brand that I think stand out. I love Blue’s and Green’s and will probably purchase another if there is a colour that I really want.
I hope you enjoyed this Review,
