I am about a year behind on the liquid lipstick bandwagon because I have really dry lips and I never thought in a million years that I could pull them off. Recently I have decided to give them a go as more and more brands are coming out with them and I was keen to test out different formulas.
So today I have a few to show you from various brands and my initial impressions of them.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Fig
In a word, Love. The formula is fab and the colour is just so easy to wear on a daily basis. It has a light and creamy consistency and it is not transfer proof. The finish is in between a matte and a gloss and it is very comfortable to wear.
Stila Stay All Day in Patina and Beso
My second purchase of liquid lipstick was Stila Stay All Day in Patina. Oh My Goodness. The colour is just the perfect mauvy rosy pink. The consistency is moussey and the product does transfer slightly. It wears on the inside of the lips very evenly and is not drying.
After using Patina for a few weeks I bought a red, Beso. I tested Beso the other night and wore it to dinner. It wore even better than Patina in my opinion and is such a great red for a night out.
Hourglass Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Canvas
This is a wonderful liquid lipstick, a touch more drying than the Stila and Too Faced but the colour is extremely versatile for daily wear. As it is a more dry formula, it doesn't transfer as much as Stila or Too Faced.
Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip in Louvre Palace
The Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip is a product that I had such high hopes for, as it was touted to be long wearing and transfer free. I really wanted it to work but it is SO SO drying. I feel like it sucks the moisture out of my entire face and shows my lip lines like nothing else I have tried. This one is a pass for me, and this particular colour seems to be patchy and uneven.
Dose of Colours Liquid Matte Lipstick in Pinky Promise, Stone, Merlot and Bare with Me
I recently received this in the mail and I can't really complain about these! The formula is quite comfortable to wear and wears evenly through a meal. Probably the best formula of the bunch, I am so glad to have picked up so many colours :)
