17 Nov My 5 Go-To Liquid Lipstick’s
The liquid lipstick has drastically soared in popularity throughout 2016 for multiple reasons. Most liquid lipsticks are very moisturizing on the lips and have a tendency to claim to last for up to 8-12 hours with one application.
They look very much like a lip-gloss, and also apply like a lip-gloss. The magic behind them is that when they dry, they are set to be smudge-proof, waterproof and in most cases, have a matte finish.
I wish you all the best when trying to remove your liquid lipstick, as it usually takes determination, a whole makeup wipe, or remover to get it off.
Below, I’ve chosen 5 liquid lipsticks that have worked wonderfully on my lips – and always seem to get compliments when worn.
This little beauty is my favourite liquid lipstick out of them all. Not only is the formula and consistency of the liquid faultless, it is also infused with real cocoa powder – both a positive and negative as I tend to eat it off my lips as it tastes too damn good!
It is a muted, medium brown with warm, peachy undertones with a creamy, light glossy finish. The shade is what draws me to choosing it almost every time. It is the perfect nude shade for an everyday look and usually stays on my lips for up to 5 hours.
Only new to the beauty world – I had the privilege of testing out Zoeva’s fresh Pure Velour Lips Collection. Enriched with vitamin E, the ultra creamy formula is as soft as velvet when rubbed between the lips. This shade is an intense dark rich plum colour, which will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.
In my experience, this liquid lipstick lasted me around the 7-8 hour mark (which involved a lot of drinking and eating), and only then left me with the inner part of my lips looking a bit faded. Very impressed!
If this weightless, creamy-matte, full coverage liquid lipstick isn’t apart of your makeup collection, please do yourself a favour and purchase this little tube of magic.
Patina is a pretty pink nude shade – very soft and romantic, and when applied to my lips, it really does ‘stay all day’.
I’m a big fan of nude lip colours and this is one of my favourite true brown nude shades in liquid lipstick formula. It glides on the lips very easily, and leaves quite a smooth finish. One downfall is that these liquid lipsticks are not one tiny bit matte; they are definitely more like a gloss. So if you ignore the ‘matte’ claim in the name, these are a really great and affordable liquid lipstick.
I know I know, another too faced product… I honestly can’t seem to fault the brand, especially when it comes to their liquid lipsticks. What I love about these matte liquid lipsticks is that they apply as a gloss, making it easy to rub your lips together and perfect the application, and within 2 minutes it dry’s into a matte – which lasted me 8 hours.
Too Faced have also formulated the lipsticks with vollulip, a sting-free lip plumper to give you that illusion of a more luscious and plumper pout – every girl’s dream of 2016.
I personally think Lady Balls is the ultimate bright red shade, which is perfect for Christmas and the summer months to come.
