If you follow me on Instagram you know that I won a contest with Aromi Beauty to name their new liquid lipstick. The name suggestion “Terra Cotta” is what made me win this lipstick and there was one more similar shade that was named “Stella Rosea“.
After trying it for around a week now, I can tell you that these are SO.GOOD! The formula is super lightweight, mousey and comfortable. I’m actually wearing Terracotta right now as I’m typing because I like the formula so much. What these do have to offer that the others don’t is vegan, cruelty-free dries down to velvety matte finish that is non-drying!
These go on like a lip gloss and dries to matte, velvety finish. These take a while to dry down, but once they do, they dry to a comfortable matte finish. The pigment is incredibly rich and you get full, smooth coverage with one swipe.
It wasn’t until a good 6-ish hours of wear that I noticed my liquid lipstick beginning to crumble in spots, but I cleaned it up and applied another layer and it was good for the rest of the day. These are a little pricey at $17 each, but I absolutely recommend grabbing one to try out especially if you are into vegan lipsticks and you absolutely hate the feeling of drying liquid lipsticks, these are a notch creamier than the rest.
Now the best part, when these arrived and looking at the shades closely these reminded me of Kat Von D Limited edition Lolita Lip duo that I missed during the Black Friday sale! Fishing through swatches these are the exact dupes (Comparison pic from @dupethat). Terra Cotta is first formulation of Original Lolita and Stella Rosea is the third or newest formulation, Lolita II. If you have always been thinking of trying Lolita these are just a great alternative not compromising on formula or color!
I’m obsessed. The website offers tons of shades and swatches that reminds me of probably more dupes of high end lipsticks.Overall these are comfortable wear while keeping your lips soft and smooth.
