LA Splash Lip Couture | Review & Swatch

LA Splash Lip Couture

Probably you have already noticed there is a huge liquid lipstick wave flowing everywhere. Every brand has or even if they don’t yet they are coming up with their liquid lipstick range. I also kinda love liquid lipstick because of their long lasting formula. Today I’ll be reviewing LA Splash Lip Couture Liquid lipstick.

You might have already noticed this brand, LA Splash is widely available in Bangladesh. I’m already a fan of this brand, their eye glitters are amazing. However, since their lip couture swatch is everywhere especially on Instagram I was really keen to try them. It wasn’t easy for me to get my hands on those lip product as I’m living in Malaysia now and it’s not available here. As soon as I heard that they are available in shops(Bangladesh) I did manage to get them somehow. There was some other color in my wish list but it turned out there are only a few limited shades(mostly red and pink) available in Bangladesh. I found only one from my wish list which is Untamed and picked Hidden Desire as an additional one.

LA Splash Lip Couture retailed at BDT450/- in Bangladesh where in the USA it’s approx $12. Their packaging is quite basic, actually, they look good in the picture because of that accent gold top but in reality that gold part feels tacky. The sponge tip applicator is basic in quality as well. Shade is written in the bottom on a plastic sticker and there is a waterproof striker on top! Do you find anything fancy in packaging? I don’t!

Swatches of LA Splash Lip Couture Untamed & Hidden Desire:

Untamed is a reddish brown, very deep and rich color. If I talk about only this shade Untamed then guys, I’m so in love with this particular shade. It’s so classic and can be a dupe of many high-end lip shades that are already very popular. This one applies to my lips smoother than the other one and stayed budge-free for the whole day even after having Nasi Goreng for lunch.

The shade Hidden desire is a blue toned, almost purplish pink; quite a flattering shade to wear. This one also applies nicely as you can see from the first picture but somehow it takes ages to dry and even after drying when I touched my both lips together they just smeared. I tried to wear them three times but the same thing happens every time. I assume there must be some issue with this exact lip product I have or with this color formula. There was no way I could wear it out.


Let’s talk about the overall quality of this lipstick. I swear I was way too much excited when I got them. The way people were barking(!!!) about these that did make me insane too. LA Splash Lip Couture claims to be waterproof, yes they are. They claim to last all day, yes he does. They claim to have opaque pigmentation, yes they have. Yet I’m frustrated, why? I went through a lot of reviews before buying them, never seen anyone saying a word what I’m going to say now.

Both of these LA Splash Lip Couture I’ve smells like raw paint or some kind of chemical and that is so damn strong that I never experienced in any other cosmetics before. 80% of smell goes away when the product is dry but that 20% stays there. That smell is more than enough to give you a bad feeling. They are so uncomfortable to wear. You will not forget about lipstick after applying(what a liquid lipstick suppose to do) but for the whole day, they will keep you aware of a feeling that your lips are shrinking so you can imagine how drying they are. And lastly, they are extremely hard to remove, yes they do come off with oil but there is that weird after feeling.  After removing them I felt my lips were tortured somehow and that feeling last for a couple of hours, trust me!


Now, the facts I mentioned if that’s not a fact to you then these products are fantastic for their price.  They apply beautifully and once they are on so they are on, except ‘Hidden Desire’ of course. My feeling isn’t really good towards them so of course I will not buy anymore and will not recommend anyone either but neither I will say you shouldn’t buy. Different people have different taste and different point of views you know. The decision is yours :)

    Dude they don’t all smell like paint. Each line seems to have its own formula (I’ve noticed that they all behave VERY differently depending on what line they’re from), and you picked the worst possible one. You should try their dessert themed line (I forget exactly what it’s called, but almost all the shades in it are named after desserts). It’s a MUCH better formula than the Lip Couture one. It’s not drying, it lasts way longer without flaking off, and it legit smells like candy. LA Splash is so all over the place with their formulas that by only trying one line, you’re really not getting the full picture. They’re all totally different in the way they behave.

      I won’t disagree with your point Jessi. But there’s the point as you said ‘all behave VERY differently’and I ‘picked up the worst’! So there is ‘the worst’ product available which I literally experienced and shared here :)
      I know Jessi that they have a lot of different formulas by now (wasn’t much there when I posted this review) and they must have made some development accordingly. Then again you said that they’re all over the places with their formulas. From the perspective of a user I, honestly, do prefer a brand who are consistent with their formula. However, I really wish I could each of their lipstick varieties but you know that’s kinda impossible but I can surely try a few in the future that is in your top favorite list. Shoot me a recommendation list, I will keep a note.

    I do love both the shades, more so the “Untamed” one. But sad that it smells like Paint and Chemicals.

    Honestly, I wouldn’t mind spending $20 on this interesting Band that would help me keep track many things

    These shades look amazing, I really love the pink but it is a shame it is a little too bright for me.
    That’s awful that they smell like paint. That would put me off straight away

    I love the shade Untamed! I’m really into red, wine, and more dark shades of lippies nowadays. Hidden Desires isn’t a shade I’d go for as it wouldn’t be very flattering on my medium skin tone. Very nice review, love reading honest and unbiased experiences with beauty products.

    Great blog! I must say Im not a big fan off liquid lipsticks. I find them too drying as pretty and long lasting as they are: I cant stand the feeling on my lips.

    Both lipsticks look good on you, but whoa there, Untamed just sings to me. It is the perfect 90’s lipstick. I love it.

    That sucks! I hate that chemically/paint smell so I don’t think I would buy these either! Also, I freaking hate when my lips feel like they are drying… I’m practically racing to get the chapstick so I wouldn’t last with these!
