How to Use Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick
- Exfoliate lips before use.
- Avoid oily/greasy foods.
Before using any matte liquid lipstick, it’s always best to moisturize your lips, preferably a half hour before so your lips are properly hydrated. Since my lips are my last step during my makeup routine, I apply my lip balm right when I’m starting off, so by the time I’m done, my lips are prepped. Exfoliating before applying lip balm also helps!

In Detail Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick Brick Review, Swatches and My Experience
So this is my second liquid lipstick from dose of colors since I was so happy with the first one. They had a sale and I thought it was a good opportunity to get another color, because I planned to anyways and this way I’d be saving a bit of money too! So I was browsing google for swatches and I couldn’t decide because they have such a limited color range! Finally I settled on brick, which is a pretty medium brown with maroon undertones. The color was unique to my collection.
Like the previous, it glided on like a dream and had the same great lasting power. I was pretty happy with it. It was a sweet scent to it, so I didn’t have to deal with a nasty chemical scent which is always a plus for me. I’m very sensitive to smell.
One thing I did notice is that this color was a lot thicker than my previous shade. Because of this, I feel like it was slightly tacky as well once it dried. This is common, for different shades to have slightly altering formulas. But it’s nothing that’s too alarming. I still love it!
My one big gripe about it is the doe foot wand. It’s a little bigger than the standard wand in other liquid lipsticks, and its fuzzy, not firm so application isn’t as crisp. It takes a bit of time to get the lines perfect. Other than that, the packaging is super chic, with a frosted glass bottle and a white plain cap. It definitely stands out in my collection.
Here’s the wear test with Dose of colors matte liquid lipstick
After 2-3 hours
(Inclusive of eating and drinking)
Some of the product moved from the inner ring of the lips, but it wasn’t noticeable with my mouth closed. It remained pretty much intact other wise
After 5 hours
(Inclusive of eating and drinking)
A little bit of the inner part came further off but again it was only noticeable when I opened my mouth. The rest was still pretty much intact which is impressive!
Here is the smudge test

The color didn’t budge or bleed
