Liquid lipsticks are - imo - one of the single greatest inventions for women. All of the makeup and none of the fuss of upkeep whilst we're busy working our nine-to-fives, juggling kids and cooking dinner all at once. Here's what I think of my latest additions to my *ahem* rather extensive collection:
A deep burgundy liquid lipstick with a matte finish. I bought this on a bit of a whim and, considering the price tag, wasn't surprised when I discovered it was prone to balling up/wear and tear throughout the day.
This colour is everything - somewhere between a burgundy and a rose - and the formula and wear-time is much better than the initial releases. It's not the most long-wearing liquid lipstick I own but it's certainly one of my favourites. Though, if scent is a bit of a deal breaker for you I'd stay well away as Dash smells like artificial fruity chews - a scent that does go away shortly after application.
I'm not too sad I paid well over the odds for this over on eBay - the formula of the Colour Pop Ultra Mattes are second to none. Though the reformulated shade won't be for everyone with it's blue/gray undertones it's certainly brought me out of my lip comfort zone (read: reds). I apply this once and don't have to worry about it for the rest of the day. It's that good.
Great formula. Great wear. I don't have a bad word to say about this exquisite shade. Brown is my new favourite lip colour.
Whilst I love the NYX Lingerie line, I found this Soft Matte Lip Creme to be hella drying - heresy I know - so much so I had to remove it after a few hours of wear. Twice. Which is such a shame because it smells like cake and the colour screams vampish-gals which is right up my alley.
This pulls a lot deeper than the pillar-box red above. Think Marylin Monroe. It's a sort of middle-of-the-road kind of product in which the wear time is fair, but not all day, and the lipstick does crumble a little.
Let me know what liquid lipstick you've been trying out lately!
