Physicians Formula The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick Review

 

Physicians Formula took a while to be available here in Belgium. But as of last year or maybe 2 years ago,  we can finally find them in our selected local drugstores and online shops as well. But the prices here is way more expensive than in the US that's why I only buy from them once they are on promotion. I did love their Murumuru Butter Butter Bronzer and Murumuru Butter Blush (Nude Silk) so I know there lip products would be great as well.

I have been wanting to get this lip product for years now that's why I'm glad I can finally try them. Anything "Velvet" I am inclined to buy them because that is my preferred formula. Not drying and light on the lips. And the colors of this line are really beautiful as well and you can choose from light to dark tones. We don't have all the shades here but we have mostly the shades I wanted to try so when it was on sale recently, I went for it so I can finally review them myself.

The wand of this is very flexible that is a bit harder to apply because it is too flexible so you can't control better your application. When it is a bit stiffer plus the angled design of the applicator which makes the application much easier, it could have been perfect. But it can still work, I'm just used and prefer a bit stiffer kind of wand. The applicator is just wide and big enough to coat your lips in one swipe. It has a hole in between and it gets just the right amount of product everytime.

The packaging feels and looks highend and mature. I'm glad they chose that kind of aesthetic and even if it is simple but you can still see that they put so much thought into making this line. They are plastic and light and the cap looks like a metal kind of material but it is plastic as well. I like that I can see through the packaging so you see right away which shades you grab. 

I only chose 4 shades because these are the only shades that I feel will work for my skintone and I will actually wear and like. There was a shade I would have wanted to get as well which is the Nut-ritious but it is not available here in Belgium.

All-Natural Nude: is a light peachy beige kind of shade which is a perfect nude shade for me. I thought this would be too light or it will look like a concealer shade on me but I was wrong. Thankfully it still suits my skintone as a nude shade. This is the perfect shade for smokey or heavy eye looks.

Bare With Me: This is one of the shades I was so excited about because it looked so pretty on other people's swatches. And I thought it would be a nude shade for me but it is more of a coral shade which is still pretty to wear during spring or summer months.

Berry Healthy: This was the shade I was most excited about because it looked like a beautiful MLBB kind of shade which turned out to be true. It does not look so berry shade on me, just a hint of berry with more pink undertone. Love this shade!

Red-Storative Effects: I took a chance with this because normally I don't like red toned kind of lip products because it makes my lips look even bigger but this is flattering on me. It's not too flashy kind of red which I prefer and I feel like it compliments my skintone. This is one of the few red shades that I like and might wear.

My Verdict

I do love the formula and how it looks on my face. That's why I prefer velvet kind of formula because they are lighter on the lips and nondrying. And with the avocado oil, hyaluronic acid and other ingredients they included to make it hydrating really worked and feels comfortable on the lips even if it dries down completely. Unlike the other normal liquid lipsticks that sucks the moisture out of your lips and can be tacky feeling on the lips as well especially when it still drying down but with this is different. This feels not heavy on the lips when it dries down and almost feels like a lip tint than a liquid lipstick. It can transfer a bit even after drying and you can easily remove it even with just a makeup wipes. I think this will still work well under mask and I noticed even after eating warm food, it was still almost intact only some parts were faded but not that obvious. This is the best formula for liquid lipstick I have tried so far and that I would still want to wear because the formula is just perfect for me. They are very opaque, longlasting and I don't really smell any strong scent to it which is great. I am really excited to try more lip products from them and I hope they will release more shades in the future.
