eccentric cosmetics liquid matte lipstick review and swatches

Oh yes. It's another corker of an indie brand I'll be gushing about today. Eccentric Cosmetics is an Etsy brand that specialises in liquid lipsticks, amazingly unique mineral eyeshadows and eye primers. When I stumbled upon their shop, I wanted everything. Unfortunately, I'm a broke child. But there was a solution: they sell trial sizes! So, I bought one of the trial size liquid matte lipsticks. with the intention of going back for a full size in happier times if it impressed me. Spoiler: it did.

So there it is. The trial size is a dinky 1.2ml, which is enough for a few applications and really all you need for getting acquainted with the formula and seeing if the shade suits you. I got the shade 'Aurora Australis'. All the lipsticks are, I believe, named after beautiful Australian landmarks and natural phenomena. Which is kinda cool.

The shade is a deliciously vivid raspberry pink which would look amazing on any and every skintone. I loved that it went on opaque in one layer and didn't look streaky or uneven, and it dried to a long lasting but comfortable and lightweight matte finish. There was minimal transfer, but that hardly faded the colour on my lips at all. I wore it through a cup of tea, a meal, and a whole lot of talking, and it held up well with no uncomfortable cracking or tightening. I'm really impressed actually, and I love this shade so much that I'll definitely pick up the full size soon. 

Oh, and if you weren't already convinced, it's very reasonably priced too. £8.48 for a full size tube (great for a small batch handmade product) and only £2.12 for shipping to the UK. Oh, and they'll give you a sweet free sample of an eyeshadow too. 

So yeah. Go check em out xx
