I recently grabbed some of the new L.A. Girl Matte Glosses (review on the other colors soon!), and one I'll focus on today is Frisky. Frisky wasn't a colour that I was initially drawn to - I only grabbed it after seeing it in real life at my local Unichem pharmacy for just $8.99*, and realising that it was actually a gorgeous, gorgeous red. I noticed it was pretty similar to my beloved Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso and decided to compare the two. So are they dupes?
Both of these are transfer proof on me, and only wear away on the innermost part of my mouth. However, that rarely happens as I eat food very carefully to minimise this. The biggest difference I found in overall wear was that Frisky bled slightly, especially around my upper lip line. I this rarely happens to me, but I'm sure it could be fixed my using an invisible lip liner.
However, the biggest difference between the two is the cost. Don't be fooled by Beso's longer tube - it only contains 3ml of product, while Frisky contains 0.17 oz, which converts to roughly 5ml! For Beso, the price per ml is $11.70 while Frisky only costs $1.80.
My bottom line? If you're just looking for a liquid lipstick in a gorgeous, classic red, grab Frisky. I would save Beso for when you really want to treat yourself!
