LA Splash Lip Couture Liquid to Matte Lipstick in Cryptic ingredients and label
Product: 
The formula is fairly thin but not super thin, the texture on the lips is slightly tacky for the first hour or so as well. The feel on this lip was neither drying nor soft either and I was aware of the product being on my lips. Finish was also a satin/matte so it not a ultra matte formula.

I did find this formula id tacky to the touch on the lips compared to Jeffree Star's formula in comparison but no where nearly as badly as the Rimmel Provocalips version.

Colour:
OG Ghoulish is a desaturated taupe nude with a matte finish.
Cryptic is a desaturated tawny brown nude with a matte finish.
Ghoulish is a desaturated rose nude with a matte finish.

Wear: For about 8-10 hours. They also wear down with dignity and had the best fade of colour on the lips out of most of the brands I've tried.

Packaging:
Clear tube with a small doe foot applicator. The original packaging has a standard doe foot applicator while the new packing has an elongated doe foot that has a thinner and tapered diameter in comparison.

The new packaging tube has a thicker wall resulting in less product in the tube as well, but I'm not sure as to how much of the product decrees there was to the original tubes as it was listed on the box.
Daylight swatches: OG Ghoulish, Cryptic, & Ghoulish.
Flash swatches: OG Ghoulish, Cryptic, & Ghoulish.

 One layer on lips.

Verdict:
The formula is very long wearing if you don't eat anything oil based.

Though these 3 shade barely show any colour difference on my fair skin tone, but I have seen them on medium to deep skin tones and that where the undertones really shin from one an other. Do you need all three, nope! But you have a choice of undertone that will work best for your skin tone with this brand. But my pick is OG Ghoulish because of the lack of warmth to it, makes it a unique choice.
