With so many brands doing liquid lipstick formulas now there seems to be a million and one products on the market which makes it very hard to narrow down which one you might like to buy.
So I thought you might be interested in the ones that I favour the most in my collection and can highly recommend as I adore the shades and how they wear on the lips!
Its not hard to tell that I love a good Pink/Mauve/Brown Nude! But Ill introduce you from top to bottom what these beauties are
This is my first time taking photos of my own swatches I found it somewhat difficult and a bit awkward but here you have it!
1. Kat Von D - Bow N Arrow
A really popular shade from Kat Von D as its often sold out. This ones the most brown out of the 5 but I find it a very wearable brown as it has a little bit of a mauve & peach undertone. It can look quite dark so I like to pat a light layer into the lips with my fingertips and I find this stops it from looking too ashy or cool toned on me. The formula itself is amazing it goes on very thin making it comfortable to wear and doesn't crack or make the lines in my lips look like old wrinkly balls! Seriously haha. It also feels really flexible on the lips, doesn't dry down so much that it feels as though your lips have tightened, I purchased mine from sephora.nz
2. Kylie Cosmetics - KoKo K
I have quite a few of the kylie lip kits now and KoKo K is pretty much the only one I wear! Mainly because all of the other shades look too dark on me. This formula is quite unlike anything I have tried when you apply it and it completely dries it almost feels velvety/silky to touch?!
This is the perfect girly pink with out having blue undertones so it doesn't come off barby looking if that makes sense, It goes with pretty much any makeup look. The formula is very long wearing, I do suggest with all of the Kylie lip kits that they look better with one thin coat otherwise they can get very thick and cracky looking (I won't make another reference to old balls) This one is heavily scented like vanilla which I personally don't mind It does go away after a while. The only negativity I have on this is as you can see with the packaging the writing is already starting to wear off which makes me think the quality isn't that great considering it was $40NZD and I feel as though it doesn't have the greatest stopper in the lid because when you pull out the wand, So much product comes out with it and is a little messy for my liking.
3. Dose Of Colors - Stone
This is my all time favourite formula of liquid lipstick and perfect shade! Its super flattering and pretty, dries down matte, Its the perfect shade of mauve pink in my opinion! I brought this colour because Amanda Ensing is always raving about it in her youtube videos and snapchat. Im even considering this as my wedding day lip colour because its so beautiful to wear!
really comfortable to wear and lasts all day with out transferring. When I wear this liquid lipstick I always get comments asking whats on my lips! :) Dose of colors is an american brand they do ship world wide and very fast shipping. I paid $18 USD for mine
4. Mellow Cosmetics - Rome
This one always takes me back to the days when I would wear Mac Snob Lipstick almost every day! A beautiful baby pink shade perhaps not quite as blue toned as snob, Since this ones a very pale shade of pink I do like to wear only a very thin layer so its not super opaque and I often wear it with a lipliner to make it more wearable. When I need something thats still long wearing but I don't want to wear anything thats really drying on the lips this is what I will opt for as it feels really hydrating but still dries down to a flexible velvety matte finish
100% vegan and cruelty free - Big Thumbs up! Pretty affordable at $19
5. Stila stay all day liquid lipstick - Carina
The only bright liquid lipstick that has stolen my heart well and truly! I love to whip this one out for special occasions. I was attending my sister in laws wedding in the picture to the left. It is more of a mousse like texture but I would say out of the 5 this is the most pigmented as you can see the colour really packs a punch. I don't often wear a bright lip but theres something about this shade that makes me so happy, It really brightens up my face when I wear it. Perfect coral/orangey red! Looks amazing with a golden smokey eye. This shade screams summer to me! I purchased mine from the New Zealand mecca site www.meccacosmetica.co.nz for $40
So theres my round up of my all time favourite liquid lips to wear I hope this post has been helpful if you have any questions please feel free to comment below, I would Love to know what your favourite liquid lipstick is!?
