Makeup Edit: Liquid Lipstick Lovin

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.

Sephora Lip Creams
Favourite Liquid Lipsticks

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?

  1. I definitely want to try the Stila ones x


  2. They are absolutely amazing, definitely my favourite brand for liquid lipsticks :)

  3. I adore the Sephora Cream Lip Stains, but I'm not such a fan of Bourjois' version. I'll have to give the Stila ones a try, as they sound hard to beat!

  4. I really need to try the Stila liquid lipsticks. I have really got into these types of products recently and the red I'm loving now is Merlot from Dose of Colors - I featured it in a recent blog post. It's such a gorgeous shade! Have you tried any of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams? They're a really nice, affordable product. They have such a lovely shade selection too. x

  5. I adore the pigmentation of liquid lipsticks but they are not very forgiving if you make a mistake! The Stila one in Beso looks adorable x


  6. I really love liquid lipsticks mostly because I prefer a matte look but also because they last ages on the lips! That sephora shade seems so pretty! xx


  7. The Stila shades are pretty fantastic, I'm currently obsessed with the shade called Patina, it's a gorgeous "Kylie Jenner esk" shade :)

  8. I'm definitely become a liquid lipstick addict, though I haven't tried any from Dose Of Colours (yet) haha. I have tried a few of the NYX ones, but I found them a little bit more drying then the Stila ones, which are 100% my favourite :)

  9. I know what you mean, you do need a steady hand (which I definitely don't have haha) but as long as you use a lip balm beforehand, and just take your time the results are completely worth it!

  10. They're amazing aren't they, when it comes to red lips I always go for a liquid lipstick! You just can't beat the staying power ;)

  11. Shockingly, i've never tried a liquid lipstick, but you've made me realise just how much I really need to! I have no idea where to start - perhaps with them all?! xx


  12. I'm so scared of liquid lipsticks. I jumped on the Rimmel Apocalips hype a few years ago and wasn't that keen. But I really must give them another go. I love Stila so much so maybe I'll start with these ones!

  13. Oh I am a huge fan of liquid lipsticks! Stila has to be my favorite one and Beso and Patina are my favorite. Kat Von D is probably my second favorite as it's lightweight on the lips. I just picked up some of the NYX liquid suede cream lipsticks and those are ultra smooth on the lips and quite long lasting! I always love using the bold colors since they tend to last longer with this long lasting finish.

  14. I'm with on the bright liquid lipstick front. There is nothing better than a red/orange/pink/whatever other bright colour lip - all year round! My personal favourites are the Bourjois lippies and I am slowly coming to the love the Anastasia Beverly Hills ones. I have yet to try Stila and Sephora so might have to give those ones a go! Great colour picks! xx

  15. I think the idea of them is quite intimidating, but they are so easy to apply especially the Stila ones. Once you try one you end up wanting more, trust me haha :)

  16. I completely understand where you're coming from, but the formulas have definitely changed since the Rimmel ones came out - I wasn't much of a fan of those either. I can't recommend the Stila ones enough, especially the shades Beso and Patina :)

  17. Beso and Patina are without a doubt my two favourites, they are gorgeous! I do have one of the NYX Liquid Suede's but I haven't tried it yet, it's on my list haha :)

  18. Ooh I haven't tried any of the Anastasia ones yet "adds them to my mental beauty wish list" but I can highly recommend the Stila ones, they are absolutely lovely, especially Patina and Beso :-)

  19. I'll definitely give them another go, I'll look out for these shades. Thanks! :)

  20. I'm completely obsessed with liquid lipsticks myself - I'm so glad they are a "trend" right now! Wonderful roundup :D

  21. Thank you, I've been obsessed with them for the last few years, so I'm glad different brands are bringing out more shades!
