jd glow cosmetics liquid matte lipstick- review and swatches

It's been a while! I've been away in the motherland soaking up some rays for the past month. But I have now returned to my lipsticky life and have a new review to share with you.

Have you heard of JD Glow? You ought to have. They're an indie cosmetics brand that has become quite a hit with makeup loving fiends on account of their pretty highlighters, lipsticks and eyeshadows. Although I was sorely tempted by a pan or two of their signature glow, I restrained myself and only picked up one of their liquid matte lipsticks. I got the shade 'brown suga' which is a slightly cool toned nude. Check it.

JD Glow cosmetics liquid matte llipstick- brown suga
It's usually a great wear-alone nude on me (I'm wearing it alone in the swatch), but since my recent tan, I prefer to wear it paired with a darker brown lipliner. I like the colour. It's a bit different to your bog standard peachy nude. I like the formula too- it's opaque and doesn't feel like an arid layer of cement. The only dud is the dry down time, which does take a while.

These lippies are usually $15, but are currently reduced to $13, which makes em pretty pocket friendly. What's more, they've recently revamped their packaging to something super sexy (I've got the boring old packaging, boo). They've got a great shade range going on and the product smells like vanilla.

So. If you're feeling a bit tempted to go snag a new lippy, now is probably a good time.

I am an enabler to lipstick addicts.




  1. I haven't heard of these but now you have enabled me to further my addiction and seek them out ;-)
