Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Honest Beauty Liquid Lipstick in the shade Off Duty.
In case you don’t know, Honest Beauty is Jessica Alba’s makeup line. It has very clean ingredients and it’s cruelty free. It recently arrived it Italy and I was really curious about it.
A couple of weeks ago I saw the video Jessica Alba did with Vogue and it was the final push I needed to finally make my order.
This liquid lipstick is available here for 15$ and it comes in six shades.
This shade is a light peachy pink.
It comes in a really pretty box that has a “window” to see the colour, I think is very cute and clever.
The tube itself is very classic and simple, the shade is written at the bottom.
The smell is terrible, like paint, I think she wanted to do it unscented but the result is just bad.
It has a very classic doe foot applicator that I love it because it’s super easy to use, it doesn’t pick up too much product. It’s quite stiff and the point allow to create an even line without a lip liner.
The formula is super high pigmented, it’s creamy but matt and it goes on like a feather. The shade in the tube is incredibly deceiving though, it looks nuder than peachier so when I put it on I was turned off by the colour.
It takes a FOREVER to dry and it’s very sticky. It can be quite annoying because it never dries completely so it will transfer, but on the plus side, is not drying.
It lasts for about 4 hours but since it never dries completely it will rub off if you touch it or if you eat/drink.

I really don’t like this liquid lipstick. First, I feel tricked by the shade, I wouldn’t have bought this shade if I’d known it was so warm, it didn’t look that warm in the packaging. The formula is sticky and the scent makes me nauseous. I like the packaging but I wouldn’t buy it again.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
