As I've mentioned before on my blog in recent months I have become very active on instagram, it's really my guilty pleasure/sick addiction lol, but I've learned of many new indie makeup lines out there because of it.
This brings me to Pretty Zombie Cosmetics, I had never heard of them before instagram but the swatch photos is what really made me purchase. I also love long wearing lip colors.
I purchased the full set of five which includes Zombettie, Purple Poison, Pink Potion, Spellbook, and Black Cat.
L to R ~ Black Cat, Zombettie, Pink Potion, Purple Poison, and Spellbook.
Here are some lip swatches in the same order as above.
So first thing I should mention is that these are vegan and 100% cruelty free! Who doesn't love that!
I have other liquid lipsticks from Stila, Kat Von D, and Lime Crime to name a few of the more popular ones but while the name liquid is in there names, they are really more of a cream that dries to a matte finish. Pretty Zombie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks actually feel like a liquid, like you're applying water to your lips.
They apply with full opacity and dry down after about a minute to a matte finish. They can feel a bit drying over time, but that's usually expected from a long wearing lipstick. They aren't uncomfortable to wear though. You can always apply a little lip balm to make your lips feel more hydrated.
Now because of the matte formula, they are very long lasting. You can eat and drink and these are going to last all day.
I love the current range of colors. They are all bright and bold. Black Cat is amazing and a definite fashion statement lip. I wore this on Halloween and got a lot of compliments on it. I've never had a black lip product this opaque.
Zombettie is a classic red. It looks great with full winged liner and big lashes!
Pink Potion is an amazing bright pink! It's easily one of my favorite pink lip colors I own!
Purple Poison is a beautiful bright purple! I love this one because it's not dark. I really love purple lips but most are always so dark. This one works well for me.
Spellbook is a warmer pink compared to Pink Potion. It's probably the most wearable of the bunch.
The only negative thing I can say is because these are very liquidy they can leak and run from the tube, so make sure you close the lid tightly and wipe off any product that might be around the tube because they will smear everywhere! I know! Lol
Also after they have sat for awhile without use they will separate, but a quick shake and it's good.
Overall I am in love with these. I love the colors. I like how long lasting they are. I hope they come out with more colors in the future.
You can find these on prettyzombiecosmetics.com for $11 each or $49.99 for the full set.
