Darling Girl Liquid Lipsticks - Lullaby and Pink Martini Swatches & Review

Hello my loves!

This afternoon I have some gorgeous liquid lipsticks to show you from one of my favourite brands, Darling Girl. A wee while ago Susan, the owner of Darling Girl, listed a bunch of one off batches of experimental products that were either not going to make it to the shop as a permanent product, or going to be further reformulated before official release. As an added bonus the Ones Offs are listed at 25% off what they would normally charge for similar products. I've been enjoying the Darling Girl Pucker Paints and Balm Glosses so much that I jumped at the chance to try more of their lip products and I must admit, the limited quantities certainly helped to push them into my shopping cart!

Susan has since mentioned wanting to revamp her Kisu Liquid Lip Color line to be more similar to these lipsticks, so who knows, perhaps one day we'll see the return of Lullaby and Pink Martini in the permanent range. For now they are unfortunately sold out, so this post is a mixture of my compulsion to swatch all the things and hope that someone might need to see swatches while stumbling across one of these treasures in a blog sale one day.

Swatched on bare skin under daylight bulbs: Lullaby, Pink Martini


These liquid lipsticks come in the same packaging as the Pucker Paints, a long thin tube with a slim doefoot applicator. The formula is smooth and emollient with no tackiness and offers opaque colour pay off in a single swipe. It's very easy to control too, not too thick or thin - the lip swatches below were applied neat from the tube (I will often make use of a lip brush for a clean outline). To me, they smell like a cross between banana lollies and a marshmallow flavoured Lip Smackers I had in the early noughties (in a good way, I promise!). The Kisu Liquid Lipcolors feel a bit thicker and more mousse like in comparison although they share the same scent.

Lullaby

Lullaby is a light pinky nude with fabulous colour pay off. I'm kind of obsessed with this one, there are so many lipsticks I need to swatch and test at the moment, and yet I've already worn Lullaby three times. Not even sorry, it's just awesome, I really hope this makes it to the permanent line one day. Lullaby lasts for four hours on me, fades evenly as it wears away and isn't drying.

Pink Martini is a bright Barbie pink with super strong colour payoff. Like Lullaby, it wore for four hours with even fading and no drying, but I had trouble with feathering with this shade. If you're as prone to feathering as I am, I'd definitely recommend pairing it with a lipliner. Pink Martini left behind a strong pink stain. I completely adore the colour so will have to experiment with some of my pink lipliners, or an invisible liner.

What I liked:
  • Amazing colour pay off
  • Non drying
  • Banana/marshmallow scent
  • Four hour weartime
  • Both shades fade evenly 
  • Lullaby doesn't feather.
What I didn't like:
  • Pink Martini feathers
As I mentioned, these are from a sold out one off batch, but you can keep an eye on the Momentary Marvels category at Darling Girl Cosmetics for future goodies. I also highly recommend joining the Darling Girl Glitter Haven Facebook group for all the latest news.
