I have fully succumbed to the whole liquid lipstick hype! I love a matte lip and the formulas of most liquid lipsticks means the staying power out last almost any standard matte lipstick. Which is brilliant for those who have a hectic life style, or you want something that's going to last all night! They do take a bit longer, and a bit of practice to apply, but are well worth it! Today I thought I'd share some of my favourite liquid lipsticks!
Bourjois Rouge edition Velvet | £8.99
This is one of the first liquid lipsticks I brought, I currently have 4 and the shade Nudiest is my favourite. Despite what the name suggests, this doesn't translate to a nude on me its more of a bold pink colour, that leans slightly mauve-y. These promise to hold on for a long 24hours on the lips. These don't, I got a good 6 hours wear before it started to break down. They are also very comfortable on the lips, I suffer from dry lips and these didn't dry them out even without lip balm. The Rouge Edition Velvets also have a pretty extensive shade range compared to other drugstore liquid lipstick ranges.
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick | £6.50
These beauties offer intense colour, comfortable wear as well as being infused with Avocado and vitamin E for added lip loving care. I love these. I have the shades 04 softly spoken and 07 Sandstorm. Softly spoken is a beautiful, dusty rose colour with brown undertones. And Sandstorm is a mid toned brown nude. Both of these look amazing on lips, although they are slightly harder to apply than the other Liquid lipsticks in the edit. Once these have dried, they aren't overly drying. And the lasting power is crazy good. I applied them in the morning, without touching up they were still visable at 4 o'clock!
NYX Soft Matte Cream | £5.50
Another lip offering from NYX comes in the form of the matte lip cream in the shade 15 Athens. Which is a muted coral colour, that would be perfect for spring /summer. This is the most comfortable of the liquid lipsticks, because it doesn't quite dry as well as the others. But this would be great for anyone who finds liquid lipsticks to drying. Another thing to note is because these don't set as well the lasting power isn't as good. But I still get around 3 hours wear.
Sleek Matte Me | £4.99
I'm so late to the party with this, everybody has been raving about these for months. And for good reason. The shade Birthday Suite is a beautiful pinky, mauve-y nude. That looks stunning on the lips! This is also one of the easiest to apply, and lasts a good 5 hours. Although I did find this more drying than others, but nothing applying lip balm beforehand didn't sort out.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick | £15
I've saved the best till last! If long lasting and comfort is what you looking for, look no further! This is Brilliant! It doesn't smudge, budge or transfer. I have the shade Dolce which is a mid toned brown nude-y colour. What I love about this shade is it dries completely matte, but the colour has subtle gold shimmers running through it, gently catching the light, giving a plump look to the lips. I definitely want to pick up all the shades of these!
