By far most of you guys already have an idea about my – actually mine and Sadaf’s – obsession with lipsticks especially liquid lipsticks. I had DMGM Photo Fix Lip Colors on my wishlist ever since I first spotted the swatch of Plum Frost online. For some odd reasons I did not buy it for quite some time until, while on my trip to Khi, I stumbled upon the brand everywhere I went! And finally one day, leaving behind all the self-restraint I had imposed upon myself, I entered Scentsation in Dolmen Mall (leaving my aunt and cousin to shop groceries) and swatched a few Photo Fix Lip Colors from the range and ended up choosing Plum Frost. I bought Exotic Rose a few days back from just4girls.
Get set for instant glamour with just a one step sweep of light weight, non–transfer liquid lip color. Provides exceptional coverage with a moisturizing rich matte finish. Longwearing & comfortable on the lips. Won't feather or smudge.
What Do I Think?
They come in a packaging similar to MUA Intense Kisses, a small sturdy high quality plastic tube with a fine doe-foot applicator that picks up right amount of product. The formula of both the colours I got is very creamy, applies really smooth and dries matte within seconds. Both Plum Frost and Exotic Rose have very fine shimmer which is invisible to naked eyes unless you really stare at the swatches; also undetectable once you apply the product on lips. A thin layer of product gives you perfect opaque coverage, that’s how pigmented they are. I tried layering up to see if they get tacky but to my pleasant surprise, they didn’t. Although not over-powering and annoying but there is a scent to these liquid lipsticks, typical of makeup products, which is undetectable when the product is applied.
Now coming to the insane part! The lasting power. These are super long lasting! Apply as a creamy formula and once dried matte they do not feather or budge at all so much so that you will need a good oil-based makeup remover to get the product completely off your lips. Yes, water and soap also don’t work to remove it. I noticed a slight uneven coverage with the shade Exotic Rose, which I presume is due to it being a shade lighter than Plum Frost and I being a person suffering from OCD. Haha! Anyway, you may need to fill in those spaces while applying this shade to achieve the perfectly opaque coverage.The weather these days is extremely hot and humid, the time of the year when I shy away from wearing any king of makeup because I perspire a lot and DMGM Photo Fix Lip Color stayed affix on my lips for straight 7+ hours and that too with eating and drinking. These really live up to DMGM’s claim of being water-proof and transfer-proof (I put them to test by kissing the back of my hand a few times :D). A makeup product that survives Pakistan’s hot and humid weather and my perspiration is a keepsake and these for sure are. I plan to pick up a few more shades from the range especially Bahama Spice and Fuschia Bite.
I’d suggest girls with warmer and darker complexions to swatch Exotic Rose on themselves before purchasing it just to be on safe side.

Which liquid lipstick, in your opinion, outdoes DMGM Photo Fix Lip Color?
