makeup by dna liquid matte lipstick- review and swatches

DNA cosmetics is an etsy based indie makeup brand which specialises in lipsticks. I was always impressed with the swatches that floated around Instagram, so I decided to buy a lippie to try out myself. They cost a very reasonable £7.63.

The liquid lipstick arrived in a slim, dainty tube that's definitely on the smaller side. The pro: very easy to slip into a clutch bag. The con: less product. Personally, I'm ok with it. It's kind of cute. Oh, and the little graffiti-style logo is cute too.

The standard doe foot is fine for application, and is neat and firm enough to get clean edges. The formula itself is good- unscented, fast drying, not too uncomfortable, true matte.. though it isn't opaque. It is definitely pigmented, but can look streaky with just a single layer and thin, second pass is definitely needed. Luckily, the formula layers just fine.
Dna cosmetics liquid matte lipstick- love 
I got the shade 'love', which is a bright, blue based pink. Think Mac Candy yum yum. It's so fun and girly! I think I'm gonna enjoy wearing it over the coming spring.
