Creations By Khris CBK - Liquid Matte Lipstick in Brique Review & Swatches - Avis

It's crazy how many connections I've made while working at M.A.C.. There, I never know who I'll meet or when but one thing I know for sure is that I will meet someone who'll change my day - sometimes my life - almost every day.
What fate brought me a few weeks back is the introduction to Khris, a female American entrepreneur who owns both a wig and makeup company called CBK, Creations By Khris. I met her during my shift, we talked and hit it off pretty well and I was thrilled when I saw that the lipstick she was wearing was actually her own, from her own brand.

Now you guys probably know I want to own my own cosmetics brand someday and I am always in awe before people who take their own destiny into their hands and make it happen. I loved the spirit of Khris and I was lucky enough to get a lipstick of hers to try out and review here on It's Azami.

Although the shade I've gotten, Brique, is nothing like a summer shade, I'm really happy I got this one to try out because dark shades are the most unforgiving and there's a good bet that if a dark shade is good, the other shades will be too.
I love the square packaging and the golden writing on the lipstick - it's a sleek, simple and efficient packaging that's statement and is still compact enough to carry in a pocket, which is what I do on the days I work and need to touch it up after lunch, for instance. The applicator is a simple doe foot one, delivering enough product for almost the entire mouth.

I love this shade. I have been keeping away from dark shades lately because I'm always afraid they'll feather or something and boy, this baby here... Does Not Budge an inch throughout the day. The color applies smoothly and there's not patchiness to it which had me very impressed the first time I wore it/ I'll mostly spend my day drinking between customers and it's never moved around. Actually, it's transferproof, which is one of the reasons I keep wearing it.

I have to say, it is slightly drying if you wear no lipbalm underneath but a layer of Prep + Prime or lipbalm does counter it pretty easily so I've got no problem with that (who wears liquid matte lipstick without a lipbalm underneath anyway ?). One of my favorite things to do with it is wear a lipgloss on top as I know it won't move around. I love me a lipstick I can trust and I really hope I can try out more shades from Khris' range in the future, see if all are as good as my beloved Brique and I'm really happy I got to meet the owner in person - keep on keepin' on !
