These 5 lipsticks are all unique shades and I absolutely love them! They did come with a shea butter that can be used to remove the liquid lipsticks. But now if you buy any 5 liquid lipsticks they will throw in the shea butter for free. I did feel like the shea butter moisturized my lips but I didn't feel like it completely took off the lipstick. I did read that you should let it sit for a little while on your lips but even then it didn't take it all off. But I would still use it if my lips needed a little TLC.
Onto the swatches. I paired the lipsticks with lip liners and without. There were some that I felt didn't need a lip liner and some that did. You can change the color of the lipsticks by applying a different colored lip liner. It's very fun to play around with these and get a shade that you feel suits you the best. As usual my pro and con list will be at the very bottom! Thank you for stopping by and I will talk to you all in the next one!
Left to Right: Ghoulish, Phantom, Malevolent, Vindictive, Venom + Shea Butter
Ghoulish with MAC Stone lip liner
Malevolent with Milani Sugar Plum
Vindictive with a navy Tarte EmphasEYES liner
Venom with MAC Smolder eyeliner
-Vindictive and Venom are the thickest out of all the lipsticks and the most opaque. So you won't need a lot of product when applying these.
-Malevolent least opaque but with a couple coats it can get there.
-Shea butter softened my lips but did not completely remove the lipstick.
-Vindictive was more blue than grey as depicted on the LA Splash website.
-I feel like all of them dry to a matte satin finish.
- All great colors
- Long lasting
- Easy to apply
- Venom and Vindictive don't need a lip liner
- Ghoulish by far my favorite. Love the color and the color payoff, especially for a neutral color.
- Not sticky or too drying
- Not limited edition yay!
- Can accentuate lip lines
- Hard to remove (unless oil based makeup remover is used)
- Malevolent needs a lip liner underneath and a couple coats to get opaque
- Phantom can get patchy if you let it dry before you finish applying
Deducted half a point for Malevolent he he
