I can confidently say that I found the best matte lipstick for dry lips. Disguise cosmetics makes safe cosmetics free of toxins. I have tried two of their feather light lipsticks and their latest product, kajal.
I have come across Disguise cosmetics lipsticks in few stores but I am not a fan of the smell of their bullet lipsticks. Vanity wagon is a website that usually runs offer on disguise cosmetics products and while an offer was going on, I decided to give the liquid lipsticks a try.
I chose the shades Pretty Nude and Naughty Magenta, one an everyday nude shade and the other, a festive dark shade.

The nourishing ingredients include:

The lipsticks are devoid of:
My take on the product:
The product comes in a test tube like package and the quantity is just right. The feather light matte liquid lip cream, is very thin and water like on application. It doesn’t dry out immediately on application, like normal liquid matte lipsticks. So it gives you enough time to build up the intensity. It gives a nice flush of natural tone when you apply it once. The applicator carries minimal product which is great as you don’t end up applying more than required. The consistency is so light as the name suggests, and this makes it apt to use on cheeks as well.
Coming to the shade, I expected pretty nude to be more of a nude brown with slight pink tones, but on my lips it looks more like a peach brown. It is very similar to the shade Versatile from Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink. I love the colour and it is a great everyday wear.
This liquid lipstick is extremely comfortable on the lips. I have extremely dry and flaky lips and even creamy matte lipsticks are generally very drying on my lips. Also after few hours, my lips will start to feel the stretch. But none of that with the disguise cosmetics lipsticks. It is the most comfortable matte liquid I have ever used (even compared to NYX soft matte ones).
The lipstick is satin matte and it transfers a bit on cups as you drink. But otherwise it doesn’t get removed from the inner part of the mouth like other lipsticks. It can be wiped off quite easily as well with miscellar water or any cleanser with an oil part.
Compared to the other toxin free lipsticks like the Organistick lipsticks I reviewed before, this one is much superior considering the staying power and texture. This one really impressed me and if you want an other mlbb shade suggestion, I would say go with Nostalgic Rose.
By the way I got these lipsticks from Vanity Wagon for much lesser price than the MRP. But considering how good these are, I wouldn’t mind spending full price on these either.
