Silk Glam FAQ
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SILK GLAM, PEARL GLAM, AND VELVET GLAM?
> Silk Glam has a soft shimmer, giving it an overall frosted finish that sets to a satin shimmer matte.
> Pearl Glam appears shimmery, with visible shimmer pigments to catch and reflect light on your lips.
Both, Silk Glam and Pearl Glam dry down in about 3-5 minutes, setting into a soft, metallic, matte long-wear finish that is transfer-proof without feeling dry. The difference between Silk Glam and Pearl Glam is very minimal, almost negligible.
>Velvet Glam dries down to deliver a matte finish, but is infused with invisible micro shimmer to keep the color from looking flat. It is transfer resistant and long-lasting, with the highest comfort level of any liquid lipstick, comparable to a traditional lipstick, but with much longer wear, and a slightly longer set time of 5-10 minutes.
We recommend not eating or drinking for at least 10 minutes after applying any Runway Rogue liquid lipstick, to ensure that the color becomes truly transfer-proof.
ALL Liquid lipsticks are VEGAN, CRUELTY-FREE, PARABEN-FREE, MADE IN THE USA
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIQUID LIPSTICK AND CLASSIC BULLET LIPSTICK?
Liquid Lipsticks are designed to be long wear, and are applied with a doe foot applicator. It is intended to be applied once and then stay on until you take it off.
Classic bullet style lipsticks are applied directly to the lips with a traditional, twist-up lipstick product. They are creamy and moist, and ideal for those who have a tendency for dry lips and don't mind reapplying.
DOES SILK GLAM LIQUID LIPSTICK HAVE A SHIMMERY FINISH?
Silk Glam has a frosted finish. It is not shiny like a gloss, but it is shimmery, similar to a highlighter, but in various colors.
IS SILK GLAM LIQUID LIPSTICK FULL COVERAGE?
Yes, Silk Glam provides full coverage and is designed to be used in a single layer. Adding too much product can make the product look patchy or feel dry.
IS SILK GLAM LIQUID LIPSTICK LONG WEAR?
Yes, Silk Glam is a long wear product. However, there are certain factors that may reduce the long wear functionality, such as adding a gloss, or getting oils from food on your lips, since oil, or oil-based makeup removers are used to remove the product.
WILL SILK GLAM LIQUID LIPSTICK DRY OUT MY LIPS?
A long-wear formula will never be as moisturizing as a traditional, bullet-style lipstick or gloss. The oils that provide the moisture in classic lipsticks and glosses are the same oils that prevent them from being long wear or transfer-proof. With long-wear products, the best outcome is usually achieved by applying long wear products to exfoliated, non-chapped lips. A pro tip for soft lips with liquid lipstick is to drench your lips in a thick layer of lip balm or rich lip moisturizer, either overnight or a few minutes before applying the liquid lipstick. Let it sit for a few minutes, then blot or wipe it off as much of the balm as possible, THEN apply the liquid lipstick. A little goes a long way, so use the thinnest possible layer to get your desired coverage. After the lipstick completely dries, you can top with a gloss if you desire a glossier look, but this will affect the long wear and transfer proof properties. Still, a lot of our customers tell us that adding gloss on top is their preferred method, because it provides a good balance of long wear and moisture.
