Review | Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick in Truffle

Dose of Colors is one of those brands I’d always wanted to try. I’d seen their lipsticks on a number of influencers I love and trust and so in the Black Friday sales I picked on of their Liquid Matte Lipsticks up in the shade Truffle. And after using it for a few weeks (or near on months now), thought I’d share with your my thoughts…

Price & Packaging

The packaging is gorgeous! It comes in this stunning matte tube with a matte black lid, with a decent sized doe foot applicator with a tilt at the end. All in all, love it! The price point is £18 a tube making is relatively expensive, but also not unreasonable! And, I picked mine up in the sales on Black Friday so a better steal for me!

Shade Range

I picked up the shade Truffle, which is a gorgeous everyday pink-toned mood! However, there are 35 shades of it on BeautyBay (where you can pick it up in the UK), and they have such a great range of shades. You can pick up all different tones and shades of nudes, some gorgeous reds, berries and there’s even a rogue purple and black in there! I actually think it’s a really good shade range, and it’s nice that they would suit such a wide range of skin tones and undertones.


This is one of those matte liquid lipsticks that goes on creamy (making it super easy to apply), and then dries down very quickly to a matte. It doesn’t seem to bleed and there’s relatively little transfer (you do find a little mark on your mug… but when don’t you?!). The wear power is pretty impressive, it doesn’t dry of flake and so it fades nicely as it wears on the lips. It is weightless on the lips (so you don’t feel like you’re wearing a lipstick- which I love), but I do also feel like your lips are in need of a lipbalm at the end of the day! So it your lips are really dry, you may want to be careful of this or apply a lip balm in the morning before you put it on!

Overall Impressions

All in all, I love this lipstick and I’ll 100% keep using this. I’d love to try some of the other lipstick ranges from Dose of Colors (as they do have non-matte formulas), and I’d also love to get a nice classic red in this formula.

Have you tried this brand?

Success! You're on the list.

  1. I love matte lipsticks!It suits you very well! I never heard of this brand, so I will check them out for sure. They’re also vegan and cruelty free so it’s an absolute win! Thanks for sharing Katie x

  2. I really like this colour and tend to go for various shades of nudes. I always hesitate with these kinds of lip colours as I worry they will be drying — the creaminess as it goes on is a good sign though! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’ve been wanting to try a Dose of Colour liquid lipstick for years, but for some reason I’ve just never got round to it! This is the most gorgeous shade and has definitely encouraged me to finally purchase. Such gorgeous packaging too xx

  4. A good liquid lipstick is so handy and easy to apply; I love the subtle shade of this and the wide range of colors Dose of Colors offers! A lighter pink always works for me. 🙂

  5. I absolutely love Dose of Colors lip products. I have one lipgloss by them that is such a favorite – and they smell incredible too. I adore the color you chose for this matte lipstick. It’s stunning. I so appreciate the review!

  6. Oooh, I haven’t tried makeup from Doses of Color before. Their price point seems to be in the midrange. Designer ones are the ones that end up draining your wallet really quickly. It is great that there are different shades to choose from. Love the one you picked out! Glad you enjoyed the liquid lipstick! Thanks for sharing!
