When I first saw these lip-glosses/ paints (whichever you want to call them) on Insta I was really upset because I couldn’t find them in my local Dischem, after months of searching I finally found one shade and even though it is a shade that I would NEVER ordinarily buy, I knew I needed to get it.
That was ages ago and recently these little squishy tubes have found there way back into Dischem’s around the country. I’ve managed to find “Hot Mess” (my first buy), “Blushing“, “Babydoll” and the most recent buy “Coy“. These lip paints claim “Super Intense Color, Extra Glossy Finish” and all I can say is that is exactly what they deliver. They have been called the Dupe for the Two Face Melted Lipsticks and from what I’ve seen online they run a close battle.
My one suggestion is apply these with a lip-brush instead of the applicator at the end of the tube. The applicator on the tube is very messy and is rather large in size so you are not able to easily apply to the corners of your mouth. With how vivid colored and intense these are, you need the that only a brush can give. The gloss/ paint gives off a slight peppermint smell which I think may have been an attempt to plump lips, I don’t hate it, in fact I love the pepper-minty-ness and wish that it did plump as well as give such amazing color payoff.
I will admit that my favorite color of the few that I own is Blushing, it’s a perfect nude-pink-purple mix (the closest color name that I could think to call it is mauve, but not quite) I feel it looks the most natural on my lips. I would highly suggest that if you are able to swatch the colors before buying – do!
The 6 colored Glazed Lip Paint are available exclusively at Dischem for R50! A great bargain for a great product.
