Danimer: Liquid Lipsticks

July 10, 2017

I always see these liquid lipsticks on eBay, but pass them up, thinking that I can’t get a good quality lipstick for 99 cents. When I made a little extra money this month, I decided to just go for it and buy the entire set of 38. I paid $35 for the set, receiving a small discount for buying them all at once, with free shipping. It took about two weeks for them to show up in my mail box. Warning, this will be long.

Value & Packaging
For 99 cents a piece, these were definitely worth trying. The tubes are on the smaller side, but with so many colors to choose from, they’ll last me quite a while. One did come with a broken cap, but I was able to fix it easily. The tubes are pretty cute, with a small scalloping design along the top and rounded bottoms. Each tube is labeled with “Danimer Long Lasting Liquid Lipgloss” although they really are more of a liquid lipstick. The tops are numbered with no real name, which is frustrating at times since it’s hard to remember that I’m a huge fan of number 05 or 17, but not 14.

Application & Longevity
Here’s where we have to break these down into individual colors. Some of these were beyond amazing in terms of application while others were terrible. All of them were fairly easy to remove with an oil-based makeup remover, but stayed put for about 6 hours with moderate eating and drinking. None of them felt sticky or burned my lips, which is always a fear when buying makeup products from websites like eBay. Here we go! Each swatch was done on bare lips and was left to dry for a full five minutes. Apologies for the slight change in lighting. I’m placing a ♥ next to the colors that I loved and would wear on a daily basis and a next to the ones that I didn’t like at all and will never use again. The rest are all decent but not amazing.

Results & Recommendations
Some of these were amazing, others were not too special. It’s really a matter of preference, but I would definitely repurchase a few of these colors without a second thought. It was really fun to purchase the entire collection and swatch them all, although it was very time consuming. See how much I love you guys?! Which of these do you like?
