RealHer Matte Liquid Lipstick

RealHer is not a well known brand but they have a good cause at heart. This brand is all about female empowerment and empowering the user to be true to herself, independent and free. You can definitely read more about their brand on their website. 
I picked up three of their liquid lipsticks in the shades I Am Fearless (pink berry), I Deserve The Best (mauve pink) and I Am Tough (blue red). They claim to be paraben free, cruelty free and infused with shea butter and natural ingredients. As you can tell, their shade names are so strong and definitely a good reminder for us everyday.
This is how the other sides of the packaging looks like. It is designed and formulated in California, USA but filled in China. It has an expiry date 6 months from date of opening but a shelf life of about 2-3 years. Mine expires in 2019. The front of the box has a small viewfinder but it's not quite easy to tell the shade from that cutout because it is quite dark and small. Each tube has 4.5ml of product …

Palladio Velvet Matte & Metallic Liquid Lipstick Review

I've never heard of this brand called Palladio but I received one of their velvet matte and velvet matte metallic liquid lipsticks to try out and review. 

Their packaging is very similar to Maybelline's Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick. It is in a transparent plastic bottle with a lipstick bullet shaped container inside. There is 4.16g/0.147oz of product in the tube for both formulas. You can find them on Palladio's website (www.palladiobeauty.com) or at Ulta. It is also available at Guardian for Singaporeans for $8.90. If you do choose to purchase from their website, you can use the code "Palladio" for 15% off your purchase. There is free shipping over $25 within the US so you can definitely save some bucks by shopping directly on their website.
The liquid lipsticks are botanical and vitamin infused but they are made in China. They also have a 12 month expiration date from date of opening.

Hack (Ultra Glossy Lip)
"A sheer pink with pink glitter" The pink base does give a nice tint to the lips and it has pink glitter in it. As with all their Ultra Glossy formulas, this one is not sticky or heavy on the lips
Jiffy (Ultra Satin Lip) "A satin dusty mauve" This is a cool toned nudey pink and it applied very smoothly with no streaks. It feels very comfortable on the lips and lasts a really long time even through eating and drinking. Since it is a satin finish, it does transfer but you can tell that there is still a lot of pigment left even after a kiss test so the color really clings onto your lips and it is there to stay. 
Chaps (Ultra Matte Lip) "A deepened aubergine" This is a really pretty dark eggplant purple and also very unique and bold. It is full on purple so it matches the theme of the collection very well. The formulation of this is pretty good. It's not streaky or patchy and one swipe did the trick. Very pigmented, lightweight and does no…
