Honestly, I have been making way too many trips to The Face Shop. Everything from the packaging to the pricing of nail polish, makeup and of course sheet masks, is enough to make me NEVER walk out of the store empty handed! Late last year, the Ink Lipquids ($25.00 CDN) totally caught my eye because they sounded like a combination of a stain and a liquid lipstick with the added hydration.
I received the shades Pink Hommage* and Orange Some* to review and was pleasantly surprised to discover how comfortable the formula felt on my lips in addition to how mega intense the pigmentation was! The chisel application tip makes lining the lips so easy and with my pointy Cupid's Bow, this type of precision came in handy!
The tip of the applicator has a slight reservoir, holding the perfect amount of product to apply just enough colour to both the upper and lower lips.

Final verdict: At first, I totally thought these Lipquids were stains. They had that same cold feeling when they first touch your lips, but then the colour that comes out is rich like a lipstick. I adored both shades even though they were so different. The only thing is that they are each quite pricey at $25 a pop and was a price point I was not expecting at TFS even though they have a wide price range of skincare. This pricing rivals department store brand pricing, BUT the quality is no less. Maybe it's just something I need to wrap my head around because this Lipquids are pretty awesome and can last all day with a touch-up or two throughout. Go in store and swatch because there are 12 shades that you need to meet!
Available at all TFS stores and online.
