Darling Girl Cosmetics: Skyfall Liquid Kiss Luxe Lip Swatch and Review

I can easily blame Arabelle at Fashion Pirate for getting me on the purple lips bandwagon. I was planning on getting OCC's Belladonna Lip Tar but of course it was discontinued so when I saw that Darling Girl was selling a purple lip gloss, this was the next best thing. 

(The photo of it in the clamshell isn't 100% accurate [it's a little too blue toned] but the lip swatch is accurate!)

Darling Girl Cosmetics Skyfall Liquid Kiss Luxe
Where to purchase: Darling Girl Cosmetics.
Price: $2.25 for a 1.5mL Try Me Size (these are purchased through a separate listing) and $5.25 for 3 mL. Technically you get a better value purchasing the try me sizes but there is a limit to (five per order) and if you prefer click pens, you have to purchase the full sizes. 
Cruelty Free? They are cruelty free as they do not test on animals.
Packaging: The Try Me Size comes in a mini lipgloss tube with a mini doefoot wand. The full sizes come in a click pen. I personally prefer doefoot applicators or applying with my fingers. I do believe you can put a note in your purchase asking for Satin Stain packaging (which is like a bigger version of the Try Me Size packaging) if you don't like the click pens.

Product Description: "Darling Girl Cosmetics lip glosses are thick, but never sticky.  Made with nourishing sweet almond oil, shea and cocoa butters for an awesome non-drying lip gloss."

My Thoughts on the Formula/Wear Time:

This is one of the semi-opaque lip glosses, the opacity described as being "not quite opaque but will more than likely cover your natural lip color" and this is pretty much right on.  I found that if you apply it with your fingers, you can get heavier coverage out of it, otherwise you can get a sheerer layer. On my lips it isn't 100% opaque but certainly something you can layer over other lipsticks for a nice finish. I've always been fond of Darling Girl's lip gloss formula, I find that they are quite moisturizing and last about three hours on me. They're not sticky on the lips. 

Skyfall is described as a "Creamy royal purple with lavender sparkles" and that's a dead-on description. It is a red toned purple as opposed to a blue-toned purple.

Swatch

Skyfall was applied on my lips with my finger and the picture taken in natural daylight.

Do you like the looks of Skyfall or purple lips in general? I know this year's Pantone Color of the Year is Emerald so maybe the next thing will be green lips!

I wasn't able to post as much this week because my internet was down at home and I wasn't able to coordinate posts with my laptop. Regular posting will hopefully resume soon! I've got to post about ISSE Long Beach, my reviews on the stuff I bought there and at IMATS, plus more! 

I hope everyone in the colder areas of the US stays safe. It actually hailed here in Long Beach which was so surprising, it's probably the closest this area will get to snow. Stay warm and bundled up!

  2. Pretty but I think I prefer more red in purple, so it's less cold-looking on lips. :)
