City Girl Beauty – Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

Ahh! I am finally sitting down and writing my first makeup review. For weeks I have been planning all the products that I can review and I am so relieved that now that my blog is launched, I can actually review them!

I recently received the matte liquid lipstick from City Girl Beauty in my KZN Blogger Meetup goodie bag. I got the shade “Bangkok“. Thank you so much to Jess from City Girl Beauty, for sponsoring these gorgeous lipsticks for the Blogger’s meetup.

I was excited and slightly nervous about trying this shade but I love trying new things. I thought this colour would be too bright on me, when in fact, I have had so many compliments on my lipstick whenever I have worn it. I must say that I felt quite like Barbie in this shade. My mind has been made up, I love this hot pink shade and I feel super confident in it.


The packaging is simple but elegant with the black lid and clear bottle.
The flat doe foot applicator helps apply the product to the lip quicker. *If you have fuller lips – this is great for you!* The product spreads so smoothly and effortlessly.


The formula is thick but so soft and really easy to apply. I did find that my lips were super sticky when drying. (Unattractive dog-like breathing occured.) Later on in the day my lips got really dry, so I just applied a little @chapsticksa lip balm to hydrate it a bit.


I was SUPER impressed that the colour lasted ALL day and survived lunch and coffee. It didn’t transfer onto anything. (Unless you add lip balm, then it will.)


The scent is light and fruity. LOVE!


  • Isododecane: Plant derived. Emollient that helps to keep the product soft and soothing on the lips.
  • Dimethecone: This is to keep profits from separating, and creates the fluidity in lipsticks.
  • Phenoxyethanol: Paraben alternative.

*Cruelty-Free, Vegan & Paraben-Free*
