I’m not a huge fan of metallic lipsticks in general as they are not the easiest to wear but the 3ina The Longwear Lipstick in 514 has got to be the WORST metallic liquid lipsticks I have ever tried. The formulation was patchy, extremely difficult to apply and next to impossible to get an even coat.
As this 3ina The Longwear Lipstick in 514 is not a shade I would normally choose as it is extremely light and beige against my skintone, I do feel that this lipstick’s imperfections were made alarmingly obvious when swatching this lipstick on dark skin.
A deliciously smooth cream-to-matte lipstick. Once on, expect a velvet texture that retains its intensity. Always create a base with lip liner and then simply swipe lipstick straight on.
Apply to lips after application of a lip primer for a long wearing finish. Use The Lip Pencil together with the lipstick to achieve a spectacular finished look.
