Hot Lips is a liquid lipstick formula, that is non-greasy and super longwearing. You can eat, drink and be merry for hours and your lip colour is just as strong as when you first applied it. The product applies wet but dries fast, and has an amazing creamy texture with a soft matte finish. The formula also contains power ingredients such as Prune Seed Extract, Candelilla Wax and Vitamin E to ensure lips are plump and moisturised.
It comes in the standard Ellis Faas packaging, which is a silver pen-like casing, it’s pretty cool albeit a little awkward. Let’s just say I’d never have it in my carryon when going through airport security! Pop open the lid, and you’ll see a sponge applicator with holes in it. Twist the base of the pen clockwise to dispense the product through the holes and apply it directly onto the lips (or use a lip brush if you prefer, but I’m often too lazy lol). Application is easy with the sponge tip, and it glides on like a breeze for even coverage. As it’s so pigmented, you only need the tiniest amount of product, I find 1-2 twists plenty. The product also has a fun, candy like smell so totally makes me smile whenever I put it on!
