Nani Liquid Matte lipsticks

Afternoon all!

I'm going to take you on a trip to the most budget of budget conscious beauty purchases, the ebay cheapie!  Surely you've all browsed the beauty section of ebay and wondered what the products really were like.  Well, in the name of science, I'm testing them out!

Whilst browsing said beauty section for liquid lipsticks about a month ago i found these lip ' glosses'.  The store i bought these off had 12 different colours, and they sold them for $1.26 each (i have another colour on it's way, the store i bought it off has 36 colours and sell them for $1.37).  They say that these are waterproof and a velvet matte finish.  I was sold, and bought 2 (and as i mentioned, i have another coming, a beautiful dark red).  #01 is a blue based bubblegum pink, #06 is a darker blue based pink, which is metallic (as strange as it sounds, it's a metallic matte).
These are the 2 original ones i ordered, #01 (lighter pink) and #06 (darker pink).  They do come in a box, so they are presented nicely.  The packaging doesn't feel overly cheap, at least not as cheap as you would expect from the price tag.  It's a see through tube with a black top, so you can see which colour is which.  They have a doe foot applicator.
As you can see they go on like a liquid lipstick.  They are very easy to apply, and have a great colour pay off.  They are unscented, and aren't as drying as some matte products (an application of lip balm before application helps).
The only complaint i have is they take a little while to dry.  #01 here is completely dry, but #06 is still wet in some of the thicker areas .  You need to apply a thin layer (a thin layer takes 2-3 minutes to dry, the picture above had been drying for about 5 minutes), but because of the colour payoff this really doesn't affect the product.  Once these are dry, though, they won't feather.  Actually, they won't budge (the advice from the seller is that you are going to need olive oil or make up remover to take it off.  I didn't find it that bad, but needed to scrub fairly hard to get it off).  You can get some wear from eating and drinking, but it is very minimal.  They are one of the more comfortable mattes i've tried, it doesn't cling to dry patches and doesn't seem to settle into lines and creases.

For the price you can't go wrong with these.  They are a cheap and easy way to embrace the matte trend, and there is a colour for everyone. 

36 colours available here.
