REVIEW | Civilized Cosmetics Liquid Lip Suede "Nude Blush"




Civilized Cosmetics released their much anticipated Liquid Lip Suede! The Liquid Lip Suede retails for $28 (0.28 oz) and available exclusively on the Civilized Cosmetics Website


Civilized Cosmetics formulate their products without "known cancer causing or endocrine disrupting ingredients". The brand is 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan.


Let's get started!





     Civilized Cosmetics Claim     


Liquid Lip Suede has an intense high-fashion matte suede finish. Made with natural, organic and vegan ingredients for non-toxic nourishing color. Glides on smoothly and lasts for hours. One application provides a bold matte finish.  

Finally, a liquid matte lipstick without all the toxins.




     Packaging     


The Liquid Lip Suede is packaged in a sleek hard plastic tube with clear sides to clearly display the shade color.


The dow foot applicator that dispenses the product is on the stubbier side. I find two dips worth of product is enough to clearly coat my lips.


It is very storage and travel friendly!




     Product     


There are 6 shades available. I have the shade "Nude Blush", a light warm brown nude pink. This color would be flattering on all skin tones. The color is similar to Wet n Wild Mega Last Lipstick in "Rose to Fame" (Limited Edition) but more nude, and Wet n Wild Mega Last Lipstick in "In the Flesh" but more brown.


The consistency is creamy but not sticky. The formula is very opaque without looking or feeling dry.


The Lip Suede has a faint smell, slightly sweet. It dissipates once it is on the lips.


While the product claims to have a matte finish, it is not a flat matte, there is a slight dimension and subtle sheen. I would call the finish a soft matte. The formula reminds me very much of the bareMinerals Statement Matte Liquid Lipcolor.

     Performance     


The product applies very smooth and evenly onto the lips without clinging to dry patches, becoming streaky or difficult to create a crisp line.


The color lasts almost perfectly ALL DAY! The color remains fully pigmented and even all day with the exception of heavy eating.


The formula does not dry down completely so it is not transfer proof. In fact, the color will transfer easily but that doesn't affect the look and wear of the product too much. At the end of an 8 hour work day, this product still looks as perfect as when I first applied it.


While the product will transfer upon eating or drinking, the color does not bleed outside of the lip line.





     Ingredients     


Hydrated Silica, Ozokerite, Lauryl Olivate, Plumeria Acutifolia Flower Extract, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Tocopherol, Sambucus Nigra Fruit Extract, Dilinoleic Acid/Propanediol Copolymer, Phytosteryl Sunflowerseedate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Glyceride, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Propylene Carbonate, Tridecane, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Undecane, Oryza Sativa Powder, Kaolin, Glycerin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Organic), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (Organic), Flavor (Medium Chain Triglycerides & Natural FEMA GRAS Aromatics).

     Overall     


The Liquid Lip Suede formula is highly pigmented, comfortable to wear, and wears beautifully all day without any bleeding or patchiness. While the formula is not transfer proof and will transfer with eating, the color still manages to look beautiful on the lips. "Nude Blush" is the perfect everyday nude for the Fall Season and pairs well with almost any eye look. If you're in the market for a comfortable vegan liquid lipstick that also has clean ingredients, hurry and pick this up! I will definitely be picking up more shades and I cannot wait for more shades to be released!
