Since it is National Lipstick Day today, I thought I’d make a post about my favorite liquid lipsticks, or as I like to refer to them… Lippies I cannot lip without! (I have swatched my favorite four at the bottom of the post!)
I have to say, for a $6 liquid lipstick this one performs amazingly well. Its a beautiful greyish plum color that works with almost any look you can create. The lipstick goes on matte and dries almost instantly. You can eat, and drink with this lipstick on and it will not come off! It’s very long wearing, but since you can wear it for your entire day it does become a little drying, so be aware of that. Would definitely suggest reapply half way through your day if you can but if you can’t, don’t sweat it. This lipstick will look great till the end of your day!
Again, another amazing cheap find! I adore NYX product, I always have at least two in my morning routine. They are very affordable and they are well made as well. I love ruffle trim, which is a cinnamon-pink color. It is the perfect nude if you’re looking for one. However, the liquid lipstick is drying and will come off when you drink (but you can eat as much as you like!). Still, for US$7 it’s a steal in my opinion.
Stila calls this a Stay-All-Day Liquid Lipstick and boy, are they right. This lipstick will go through hell and back on your lips and still perform perfectly. It is not drying, and this particular shade has a little bit of a shimmer to it. It is another favorite nude lipstick of mine, it works so well with a bright and beautiful eye or a natural look. Unfortunately, it is a little bit more expensive, retailing at US$24. But I do think it is worth every penny.
For all the babes out there who love metallic lippies, this one is for you. I had never tried a metallic lipstick before this one and Kylie was doing a sale so I thought, “Hey, why not?” Turns out, I love them. Reign is a beautiful burgundy shade with shimmer to it. It stays on your lipsticks all day but it is drying (like most of the kylie formulas are in my opinion), so I would re-apply maybe twice while wear it. It doesn’t streak when you put it on! The burgundy aspect to the lipstick makes it very easy to work it into a day where you’re feeling a more darker and less natural look. It is a less expensive metallic retailing at
