Hey lovely people!
Today I have a lipstick from Impulse Cosmetics, an independent makeup company. I have a shade called Gamble, which is a true royal purple lipstick.
As with my other Impulse Cosmetics lipstick, the only trouble I had with this was dealing with the flattened tip – it requires a more careful application technique than the traditional lipstick bullet does. I found this formula really similar to Two Timer as well – very pigmented, perhaps slightly stiffer, but I could apply it without any tugging on my lips.
It applies nice and opaque, but there was just some patchiness on my lower lip that I couldn’t seem to get rid of. It’s certainly more obvious in these photos, but really not that noticeable in real life. Like Two Timer, I wouldn’t consider this a true matte lipstick like these are advertised as – they have more of a satin finish. It does transfer to glass rims and the like, so it would be worth setting with a tissue + finishing powder to get that true matte finish and prevent transfer. I didn’t notice any dryness or discomfort when I wore this, either.
If you’re looking for a true purple lipstick, I would recommend Gamble as an option! Have you tried any Impulse Cosmetic lipsticks? Let me know what you think in the comments 🙂
