For me, the weather and current season don't necessarily dictate my lip product colour palette. I'm about the bright, bold shades all year round! If you've read my blog for a while, I'm sure you know that already hehe. When it comes to wearing bold colours, I always sway towards a matte finish, believe me it's less messy, especially when you're eating a roast dinner. So liquid lipsticks, that stay all day were a genius invention. Today I thought I would show you a few of my favourites.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Underage Red $20 | Hourglass Opaque Rouge in Riviera & Icon £23 | Stila Stay All day Liquid Lipsticks in Bellisima & Beso £16 Each | Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01, 14 and 08 $14 Each | Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Ole Flamingo & Hot Pepper £8.99 Each.
My favourite brand of liquid lipsticks is most definitely Stila's Stay All Day, they aren't the cheapest option out of the bunch but their formulation is second to none! If you're thinking of dipping your toe into the liquid lipstick pond, I would really recommend these as a starting block. They are so creamy, have an intensive shade range and last all day (hence the name!), most of all, they are really comfortable on the lips.
But if you're looking for a cheaper drugstore alternative, that still has a luxurious feel, you might want to try the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets. Not only do they have amazing pigmentation, they are creamy and have pretty good staying power, not bad for £8.99!
If you happen to find yourself in a European city or are planning a trip to the USA, you definitely need to hit up Sephora and add one of their Lip Creams to your shopping basket. They're in the middle price-wise (depending on the currency) but the quality is again superb.
My two favourite shades overall, that I would 100% recommend are Stila Beso and the Sephora Lip Cream in 01. Now I know they're both reds, but in my liquid lipstick experience red shades tend to have a better application and staying power, with Beso lasting the longest on me.
Here are my two favourite shades swatched:
I recently picked up the Stila Eternally Yours Mini Set (which you will know if you saw my Sephora Haul) and there is one shade in particular that has really wowed me, I'll save that one for another post though! hehe. Any guesses?
How do you feel about Liquid Lipsticks? What's your favourite band and shade?
