The EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Clouds have been in the market for a while now. However, I have yet to write a review about it because I wasn’t blogging at the time that they came out. I did a review on the True Gloss lippies which I loved and decided to write a review on these awesome Infinite Lip Clouds as well. (Update! Review for the Fine Liner Brow Pencil here!)
Disclaimer: EM Cosmetics was kind enough to provide me these Lip Clouds to review (Thank you EM cosmetics!!). However, I am not affiliated with them, nor is this review sponsored in any way.
What are EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Clouds?
The website claims that Infinite Lip Clouds are long wearing lip crèmes which are “light and fluffy” with “rich color payoffs.” These lippies have a matte finish, applies as a “vibrant liquid lipstick, and wears to a beautiful stain.” Michelle Phan states that she was inspired to create this formula after the beauty community requested a “non-drying liquid lipstick.”
The formula consists of blending the “line-filling properties of a lip liner with the color saturation of a liquid lipstick.” It’s also cruelty-free and vegan!
EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Clouds Packaging
For those interested, it comes in EM Cosmetics signature black and white box. As you open the box, you see Michelle’s saying at the end of all of her youtube videos – a simple “Good luck.” The makeup is always wrapped in the classic black tissue paper.
Once you unwrap it, EM cosmetics Infinite Lip Clouds are packaged in a simple black and white cardboard box. The color and the name of the glosses are on a sticker that runs from the top of the cardboard box to the side. The stickers are actually really easy to peel off and none of the gunk gets on the box if people care about that stuff.
Then the lip clouds. Black lids with a golden EM logo on top and see through cylindrical container. Classy and chic.
Time to Try Them On!
I have 4 out of the 9 shades. I sort of knew what colors go well with my skin so I picked the 4 that I thought would be good for me. Faded Clementine, Rose Nude, Violent Magenta, and Crimson Red.
The website describes this lip cloud as a “soft tangerine.” I would probably describe this as more of a slightly burnt orange. Not quite as dark as a burnt orange but definitely has some brownish properties to it.
The website describes this one as a “light pink, nude.” If Aurora Pink in True Gloss had a matte version, this would be it. It has the “my lips but better” vibe to it. I love this because I can wear for an everyday look.
EM Cosmetics describes this color as a “true blue-red.” Supposedly, I read somewhere that this is one of the more popular type of reds so I guess people get this more often. Not sure how it is on my skin tone, but oh well, there you go.
A “deep magenta” is how this lip cloud is described in their website. I picked this color because I wanted to see if I could pull off a dark matte lippie. I’m not too sure… but I definitely like the color payoff. For a more bold look, two coats actually does the job. The pictures below show how my lips look like after one coat.
I’ll go ahead and break it down to the promises that EM cosmetics made for these Lip Clouds. I do want to say that I usually don’t like liquid lips because most matte formulas that I’ve had are drying and just not comfortable. These… are a different story.
“Light and Fluffy… with rich color payoffs”
Yes, yes, and yes. The formula is light and fluffy. It’s like a whipped cream kind of texture. Feels very light when you put on your lips.
The color payoff is amazing. Truly, very pigmented. I sometimes expect matte formulas to be a little patchy but even the darker colored ones exceed my expectations.
“Vibrant liquid lipstick, and wears to a beautiful stain”
I mean I only have 4, but the 4 that I have are great colors. The darker colors are striking and even the one nude color I have stands out. I often think of “vibrant” as bright colors, so I don’t think that describes these Lip Clouds. Because they are matte, they are not as vibrant as say, the True Glosses. However, the colors are great and then fades into a stain on your lips as time passes.
The pictures below show you my lips without the lippie and my lips after I wiped off the Violent Magenta Shade. You can see that there’s definitely a stain effect to it. That’s with wiping it off too.
True story. Legit, this is not drying at all. It’s matte and my lips don’t really feel like I have anything on them. Then I smack my lips together and realize I’m still wearing a lippie – but my lips feel soft and NOT dry.
I’m not so sure about this because I still see my lip lines. However, I’m not sure if this is really a claim or if this is just how MP described her formula.
The application. Unlike, the True Gloss, the Lip Clouds have more of that typical doe-foot applicator. Still very easy to use and I can use the tip to line my lips since I’m lazy and I don’t have lip liners.
Transfer. Most matte lippies are transfer-proof. EM Cosmetics did not claim for these Lip Clouds to be transfer-proof. There is a little transfer after it dries, but most of the color stays on the lips.
I would definitely recommend EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Clouds. For those who want a matte finish but don’t want dry lips, this is the formula for you. It’s so comfortable to wear and the color payoff is amazeballs. It’s $16 per lippie and it’s worth every dollar. Just try it and see.
Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day!
