L’oreal Rouge Signature Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick

L’Oreal’s Rouge Signature Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick is yet another entry into the brand’s growing lineup of liquid lip options. Sadly, it isn’t among its best!

The packaging is a sleek, slightly bullet-shaped clear tube with black accents that has a standard sponge-tipped wand applicator inside,the fluid lipstick inside is lightweight and just a couple of swipes provides fully saturated bold color impact. It applies evenly, sets to a soft matte finish, and comes in a wide variety of colors.

This liquid lipstick holds up well for about four hours without fading, although we found that it begins to bleed towards the end of its wear time.

Now for the problematic part: the formula contains a high amount of drying denatured alcohol, which over time does damage to skin, particularly the delicate skin of the lips (see More Info for details). This also has a strong fragrance, and fragrance can cause skin irritation. We do wish L’Oreal would ease up on the fragrance in their makeup, as it’s not doing your skin any favors.

While this has some pleasing aesthetics, the potential problems it causes just aren’t worth it. There are far better options to be found on our list of best lipsticks.
