It’s been almost a year since my initial Coloured Raine Matte Liquid Paint review, back when the brand was not so readily available in the UK. Thankfully, Beauty Bay now does stock Coloured Raine and when they had 20% the brand I knew I had to get my hands on a couple of shades. Previously I had ordered directly from the Coloured Raine website and whilst I did not face any particular issues or custom charges (thank goodness!), it’s just far easier ordering from within the UK.
Since my last purchase Coloured Raine have launched many new shades and have also updated their packaging. Although the change is nothing too drastic, I do like the update. As for my thoughts on the formula, I have not noticed any significant difference and as far as I was able to research Coloured Raine have not stated that they did make any formulation changes – which is good with me as their formula was fine as it was.
Initially there was only one shade that I wanted which was Cherry Blossom, it had been the one colour that I would constantly look at and admire. However, then I saw my best friend wearing another shade that I had never even considered, and seeing how beautiful it looked on her I knew I had to give it a try. The shade was Sorbet, another fairly recent release from the brand.
As aforementioned, there is no change that I am able to notice with the formula, it is consistent with the shades I own previously. The brand itself certainly do offer one of the best formulas available on the liquid lipstick market and are fairly reasonable priced – especially if you can grab them with a discount. Since the launch the brand have really expanded on their selection and there really is something available for everyone. Finally, one of the main reasons I am happy to buy from Coloured Raine and am so pleased with its success is because it is owned by a woman of colour – Ms Loraine (Raine) D. It is wonderful to see her since 2013 make a mark in the industry and offer shades for a variety of skin tones, particularly by not disregarding women of colour. Furthermore, for her to create a formula that is beautifully crafted, I wish her more success and look forward to seeing what else Coloured Raine have to bring to the table.
I understand there are people who are looking for smaller companies to support, particularly from women of colour and I do recommend giving Coloured Raine a try. For anyone that no longer wishes to support Jeffree Star, although his selection is small in comparison to Coloured Raine, they do offer more daring choices if that’s what you are looking for, furthermore the formula is better and consistent throughout the line.
