I’ve been wanting to try the Yanga Beauty liquid lipsticks and I was so excited when they sent me one to review.
Brand description: “These liquid to matte lip colours are made with a rich formula designed to deliver a smooth texture with an intense pigment that is waterproof and transfer-proof. They can be worn all day long to the office, wedding ceremonies and dinner dates.”
I received the shade Purp, which is a deep violet shade.
The formula applies easily and layers well. It gives you a bit of time to work before it dries. It has good pigmentation and opacity. It is long lasting and waterproof.
It lasts for a long time and it doesn’t get crumbly or flaky throughout the day, unless you eat oily food then it starts to wear off, like most liquid mattes tend to do. Also, like most liquid mattes it is a little drying, but it’s nothing unbearable. I would suggest wearing a light layer of lip balm under this. A little lip balm underneath this will provide a bit of moisture and comfort without altering the matte, transfer proof finish of the lipstick.
The most exciting thing for me is the fact that it is almost a spot-on dupe for Coloured Raine’s Raine Fever. If you read my Products Youtube Made Me Buy post, then you know that while I love the shade Raine Fever, I have a hard time applying it because of how streaky and impossible to layer it is.
So imagine my excitement at discovering a dupe for the shade in a formula that is easy to apply and easy to layer. Purp offers more opacity and is just easier to work with than Raine Fever in my opinion. So if you’ve been wanting to try that shade and you live in Nigeria I would highly recommend Purp from Yanga Beauty.
Bottomline: Purp is a pretty dark purple. For this price point, I like the formula and performance of this liquid lipstick. It is long wearing and transfer-proof. As with most liquid mattes, you can expect a certain level of dryness from Purp, but nothing unbearable. It’s just the nature of the matte liquid lipstick formula in general, especially the more budget-friendly ones. But you can wear a light layer of balm underneath it and it will feel less drying and more comfortable without altering the finish of the lipstick.
Another thing I love about it is that as far as I can tell from the ingredient list, it has no parabens! 💃💃💃 And I also love the packaging of the lipstick and the way the wand applies product; the tip is fine enough that you can line your lips before filling it in.
