Last year I bought the Ciate Twelve Days of Christmas style calendar which had a range of mini versions of their makeup products. Three of them were these Liquid Velvet matte liquid lipsticks in the colours Oh Honey!, Delight and Pin Up. All three of them are in the permanent line and the full sized 6ml tubes are £17 each.
I have tried so many different formulas of matte liquid lipsticks I should probably stop buying them but I do love the look and some of the ones I have are favourites that I always go to when it comes to lip colour.

It’s Christmas! Blogmas Day 25 and the First Day of Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you’re having a good day and enjoying yourself whether you celebrate Christmas or not.

It’s not one I can find on their website but as their makeup bags are £12 in general I’m going to stick with that as the value they’ve put in this one, not sure if it would be.

The first day of Christmas from my Twelve Days of Ciate London Calendar is a liquid lipstick. I love the look of this calendar in general and I’ve wanted to try the Ciate makeup after loving their nail varnishes for years so couldn’t resist it when it was on offer. The liquid lipstick is a Liquid Velvet Liquid Lipstick in the colour Oh Honey! The full sized version is £17 normally on their website (currently on sale for £13.60) and is part of the new nudes range. This mini size is 2ml to the 6.7ml of a standard one which means it has around £4 of product in it. These minis are always enough for me in liquid lipsticks anyway and I can see this one lasting well.
