Lip products from indie brands!

I think most of us makeup enthusiasts in Brunei know more or less on well-known makeup brands such as ColourPop, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Benefit, MAC, Tarte, Jeffree Star, Kat Von D and the likes. So, naturally, most local Instagram sellers carry those brands.

A local seller, O.D.D. Da Bn (Instagram link here!) was kind enough to send me and let me try a few lip products from brands that she carries, brands that I have never heard of! I was not paid or sponsored in any way to write up this blogpost. As usual, my thoughts and opinions are 100% what I honestly believe in.

 The Lip Bar liquid matte lipsticks 

The packaging on these are unique! I really like the cap of the product. To those who are into vegan products, The Lip Bar products are vegan.

From top to bottom:
↬ Boy Trouble - a medium orange shade.
 Drama Queen - a plum shade.
 Bawse Lady a classic red shade.

Both Boy Trouble and Bawse Lady apply beautifully, even with only a coat. Drama Queen, however, applies rather patchy and was quite difficult to work with. These are BND16 each on O.D.D. Da Bn.

Lonely Planet Cosmetics liquid lipstick BND35
Lexington - a medium brown shade with a slight orange undertone with a matte finish.

Coloured Raine lip lacquer BND35
↬ Single - a mauve-y, dusty rose shade with a semi-matte finish.

Milani Amore MATTalics lip creme BND25
↬ Matte About You - a peach shade with a pink undertone in a metallic finish.

Glam Box Cosmetics lipsticks BND20
↬ Press On - a medium red shade with a satin finish.
High Tail - a fuchsia shade with a satin finish.

Both Lonely Planet and Milani products smell quite alike Kylie Cosmetics' liquid lipsticks. They share a sweet scent which some people might find uncomfortable to wear but it does go away after a while. One thing I noticed about Coloured Raine's lip lacquer is that it's a little runny and the lid around the tube can get quite messy because of the consistency of the product. The world has undoubtedly been taken over by the rise in popularity of liquid lipsticks so it's cool that Glam Box's traditional lipsticks are not entirely matte but rather has a satin finish, which is much less drying compared to other formulas.

It's rather rare to see such brands around here because the most commonly carried ones are as aforementioned in the beginning of this post. Hats off to sellers like O.D.D Da Bn who take the plunge into bringing indie brands to us!
