Your kiss is sugary sweet

A while back I had seen a post featuring these IMagic liquid lipsticks and I thought that they looked quite decent! I couldn't believe that 1) these were an ebay product and 2) that they were so cheap! I bought them from this seller here.
I bought 3 shades to start off with, and now I have another 4 or so that I want to get. Not now because I've been buying a little too much makeup recently without even actually trying them out. Need to chill a little. In total there are 12 shades and I have the shades 03, 11 and 12.

For £1.32 you get 8ml of product in really solid plastic packaging. It doesn't feel cheap, it doesn't smell cheap (it actually smells quite nice) and it comes packaged in a matte black box. I feel like for the price you're definitely getting a lot more than what you're paying for. The applicator is a long straight one and not the standard doe foot applicator.
One of the best things about this is that unlike the MeNow lip lacquers that I bought from e-bay, they're definitely not a sticky formula. They dry to a nice powdery-matte feel (if that makes any sense) and you can barely feel that there's anything on your lips. The consistency is actually quite runny which is a good thing in my opinion because at least I can properly go over the lips properly and carefully before the product dries out. I really recommend to use a lipliner with these because the applicator makes it a little bit difficult to get a nice defined outline.
Shade 03 has to be my favourite out of the bunch. Not only was it the most pigmented, but it went on really smoothly without any patchiness to the colour at all. It also lasted for a good solid 6 hours with eating and drinking. The inner rim of the lips did wear off a little bit, but it wasn't that noticeable. I'm always worried when I wear liquid lipsticks because you can't exactly re-apply them properly, so to have this last for 6 hours and still look quite nice was really reassuring! The colour of this is a mauve with a grey-ish brown undertone to it. It's a colour which is really in at the moment and I absolutely love it.
Shade 11 is a gorgeous dark pink with a purple undertone to it. It's quite pigmented, but it's not got the smoothest application. It went on slightly patchy on me, but it wasn't that noticeable. The inner rim of the mouth does crumble off a bit just a little bit after you wear it. This lasted about 4 hours on me before it started crumbling all off, and this was with me just drinking tea with it. I wouldn't say it'll last through a meal or through a night out, but you could always re-apply it which is what I do.

Shade 12 is one amazing dark red with a brown undertone to it. The formula of this is my least favourite of the bunch which is such a shame. It goes on incredibly patchy, and starts crumbling off as soon as it dries. It didn't even last an hour on my lips and that's without eating and drinking anything. It just kept crumbling off, and a lot of it went onto my teeth. The shade is gorgeous, the actual product isn't.

Let me know if any of you have purchased the IMagic liquid lipsticks or any of their products and what you thought of them! I'm definitely interested in trying some more out
