LOV Fatalmuse Matte Lipsticks & LOVglow Highlighter review

lov new products 2017

I'm surprised how much has LOV grown on me. You have to feel it to believe it. I'm really content with their quality and performance all around. It easily crosses line between drugstore and high-end brands. I like it, I need it, I LOV it. I like that LOV adds seasonal products to their line to keep up with makeup trends. I only hope the brand won't get as confusing as Catrice or Essence. Nevertheless, LOV is still manageable to keep up in this department (for now).

LOVglow Highlighting Drops 020 Sunlight Drops (10,99€ in Muller) is newly added liquid highlighter with a drop pipette. As good as it looks, I'm still undecided about it after several tries. It's meant to be the all-purpose highlighter that you can mix into foundation, primer or add it independently on your cheeks. The problem starts after blending the product into the skin. Highlighter is super potent on the swatch but gradually blends into nothingness with a sparkle here and there. I don't like it as a highlighting topper because it messes up my foundation. But it works generally okay if I mix it with daily cream or primer for extra boost of glow. Also note that is heavily scented.

LOV matte lipsticks review

A total win are LOV FatalMuse Liquid Matte Lipsticks (8,99€ in Muller) with their cushion mousse formula and addictive sweet scent. Indeed, they apply as a mousse with a precise applicator and settle into matte finish after 30 minutes. Their best feature is comfort - they don't dry out your lips and they feel luxuriously creamy. Liquid lipsticks have a thicker formula yet the darker shade must be applied over lipliner to restrain any moving. I also like that LOV lipsticks don't get sticky or completely matte. LOV liquid lipsticks set into rather semi-matte finish. Bare in mind, these are not longlasting or kiss-proof. Nude shades tend to last 3 hours while berry shade sticks for good 5-6 hours. They don't survive eating or drinking. Basically, if you choose comfort over longevity and you still want a pretty matte look, LOV FatalMuse Liquid lipstick is perfect. I'm SO over drying and ultra matte lipsticks that make me look dehydrated and tired after several hours. 

You can pick among 10 shades with stunning nudes and several striking reds. I have 3 different shades:
  • 710 Secret Obsession: neutral nude with pink undertone
  • 720 FATALnude: nude with coral pink tones
  • 780 Bold Attitude: warm medium berry
