Today I have some swatches and reviews of Darling Girl Cosmetics Lip Products.
They make several different lip products including lip balms, primer and of course colour cosmetics.
Packaging is simple but attractive:
Holo Gloss in a click pen, Kiss You Off Colour Rich Lip Balm in a tube, Liquid Kiss Luxe sample in Strawberry Fields Forever in a clam shell, Holo Gloss in a pot.
Reviews and swatches under the cut :)
Sugar'd Lip Scrub:
This is a sugar lip scrub in a lip balm style tube. You just apply it like a lip balm, massaging the sugar around your lips to scrub away dead skin, then wipe or lick away the sugar. It leaves a layer of moisturising oils on your lips so it acts like a lip balm too. I really love the way this makes my lips feel but I do have a problem with it. You can choose your flavour from a selection, I picked Passionfruit Rose (which doesn't seem to be available anymore) which I thought I would love but unfortunately I don't. The flavour/smell is really strong when you apply and it's too much for me. Also when you've licked off the sugar the oils left on my mouth taste bad to me. It might just be the flavour I picked or it might be the oils underneath, I'm not sure. However it does leave my lips feeling beautifully soft.
Kiss You Off Colour Rich Lip Balms:
These are basically tinted lip balms that vary in opacity. They're smooth, creamy and easy to apply. However I don't find them as moisturising as the average lip balm. The colour tends to be buildable so you can wear it sheer or nearly opaque. They all have a nice glossy sheen.
The Pumpkin King (almost opaque orange with golden shimmer):
Wicked Game ( metallic pink purple with a hint of golden sparkle. From the Darling Ghoul halloween Collection):
Naughty Or Nice (sheer pinky purple with lots of sparkle. From the Christmas Collection):
Cookies for Claus (sheer brown red with lots of pink shimmer. From the Christmas Collection):
Devils Dance (almost opaque navy blue with the tiniest hint of violet duochrome. From the Darling Ghoul halloween Collection):
Liquid Kiss Luxe
I only had a sample of this so only got to wear it once. It's a really nice nearly opaque lip gloss. It doesn't feel at all sticky, is beautifully shiney and lasted fully for about 2 hours. After that it faded a little leaving a slight reddish stain.
Strawberry Fields Forever (pink red with golden shimmer. This colour doesn't seem to be available any more)
This was a product only released at Halloween. It feels very similar to the Liquid Kiss Luxe to me, not at all sticky. I couldn't really test wear time as it's just clear with lots of glitter. It's good to layer over lipsticks. It actually feels really nice and softening on the lips.
Ghouls Gone Wild (clear with a green hilite and multicoloured glitter):
These are my favourite Darling Girl product. They have a slightly thicker formula but are still not at all sticky and don't feel thick on the lip. They range in opacity from very sheer to nearly opaque but are all chock full of glitter! They come packaged in a click-pen but I tend to ask for mine in a pot and apply it with a lip brush, that way it's easier to make them opaque.
Planet X (reddish brown semi sheer base with tonnes of duochrome shimmer that mainly goes from pink to blue. There's also a hint of yellow/gold):
Vampires Kiss (almost opaque black base with loads of bright pink glitter. From the Darling Ghoul halloween Collection):
Going Batty (dark base with green, gold and red sparkle. From the Darling Ghoul halloween Collection):
Bewitched (bright fuschia pink full of pink and blue sparkle. From the Darling Ghoul halloween Collection):
Poison Apple (clear base full of chartreuse glitter and a hint of red. From the Darling Ghoul halloween Collection):
Holly Jolly (nearly opaque bright red with green and gold glitter)
Hope you liked the post! Which is your favourite colour?
