As much as I am crazy for matte lipsticks, I love to hoard liquid matte lipsticks! In fact I even store them separately! I own only one of these awesome liquid lipsticks by this brand .It is a delight to visit their store in Mumbai whenever I can. Anyway, coming to liquid lipsticks, I am always on the lookout for these and I also own some matte ones from Diana of London.
What is it and who is it for?
This comes in a thick liquid cream lipstick and sets to a powder matte finish in 40 seconds. This is great for office goers as it lasts like it is nobody’s business and also matte lovers! This stays on and on. This gospel shade is great for mauve and nude lips lovers.

My Experience with Kryolan Lip Stain Gospel:
OMG I tested it out according to wear time and this does not budge! I wore it at 5, had tea and till dinner, there was no trace of any smudge or cracks or uneven color on the inside of the mouth. I was stunned and impressed! This shade is super creamy and thick and sets to matte in a minute. This shapes the lips beautifully for thin lips too. This does not need a lip liner as it coats the lips perfectly. The color even though a mauve nude, it covers the lips opaque. So pigmented lips are going to love this!
The color could feel mildly sticky after setting too and if you dab a tissue on the lips, it does transfer a bit! But still, with food, it does not wear off. Strange but true.
The color is apt for most skin tones but one thing to remember here is this could be very dull too. It could make you look drab and suck the color off your face in no time. So make sure you put on some brighter eye makeup. Overall I love the color; it is a nice mauvy nude for Indian skin
Positives of Kryolan Lip Stain Gospel:

Negatives of Kryolan Lip Stain Gospel:

Would I repurchase and recommend?
