Simply Lippy Challenge Day 333 | Dose of Colours Lip It Up Satin Lipstick in Shade, Toast

The last time I wore and reviewed a Dose of Colours lipstick, I fell completely in love with it. From the gold packaging, to the formula, to the brown burgundy shade, Lava Cake, I honestly loved everything about it. Because of that, I was very excited to try another lipstick from them today only, it has left me feeling a little disappointed.

The packaging is as gorgeous as ever, but the shade Toast, isn’t what I was expecting at all. From the packaging and the bullet, I was expecting it to be a soft beige with a pink rose undertone; the kind of shade that I have loved wearing recently.

However, the shade is actually more… I can’t even describe it. It is beige but with a kind of yellow brown tone? I really don’t know but you can judge for yourselves! It just didn’t translate on my lips how I wanted or expected it to and because of that, I’m not sure I like it that much.

The formula was smooth like the last time, and thank god for that because I can’t imagine loving something so much then being so let down by it in a different colour. The satin finish is creamy and glides on the lips easily, and my lips are particularly dry at the moment from the cold weather.

Because of the rich creamy texture, the staying power is pretty good and it keeps your lips feeling very soft while you wear it. However, I honestly didn’t really care too much about staying power given that I wasn’t that fond of the colour which is definitely not a good sign.

I’m honestly pretty disappointed by this because I was so excited by it first time around. I’m don’t see myself wearing the shade again so it’s a thumbs down overall.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 260 | Dose Of Colours Lip It Up Satin Lipstick in Shade, Lava Cake

Ever since I read an amazing review of Dose Of Colours lipsticks a few months back, I have been dying to try them out. Thankfully, I finally got my hands on one of their satin lippies last week so of course, packed it straight into my suitcase to try while I was away.

I’ve only worn this for one day, but already I love eveything about it. The gold bullet packaging is to die for, I love the size of it too, and the angled lipstick tip makes application super easy and precise.

Apart from the look, the shade itself is a deep brown toned burgundy shade, and one that I could see myself wearing all Autumn long. It is rich, with a gorgeous pigment and very true to the bullet colour even when applied.

The formula is rich and creamy, with an incredibly smooth texture that glides on the lips and makes them feel lovely and soft all day long. It’s exactly the kind of formula that I love with the satin finish being the icing on the cake.

Even in the heat, the staying power was pretty great for a satin finish and lasted pretty well throughout dinner too. I honestly don’t think I have a bad word to say about it which is the best feeling ever! I just love when a lipstick lives up to expectations.

I’m so glad I finally took the plunge and bought this, and if you’re a lipstick lover like me, then I think you might like this too. At €17 (available from Cloud 10 Beauty), it has a pretty good price point for the quality, and the brand is also vegan friendly and cruelty free too.
