I have to be quite fussy when it comes to choosing when to wear liquid lipsticks. I suffer from constant dry lips all year round, and so I struggle to really wear a liquid lipstick all day long as by the end of the day, or by lunch time to be honest, no matter what the formula, I end up with dry looking cracked, flaky lips. And nobody got time for that, Therefore I only tend to reach for them when I know I'll only be wearing them for a few hours, or if I know Ill be in a situation where I can re-do them half way through the day. When the situation suits and I can wear a liquid lip, I thought I'd share with you my top 4 finds that I always reach for: **Spoiler *** They're all NUDE - SHOCK. Why am I so boring?
Stila Cosmetics - Stay All Day: Perla
I would say out of the 4, the Stila has to be my favourite. It's the longest lasting, it doesn't dry my lips out to much, and the shade Perla is perfect for me. It's a pale, dusty pink which I personally think could be worn all year round, looking fab in the winter and the summer. I find it tends to dry matte within about 30 seconds. Get it here £16.00
Gerard Cosmetics - Hydra Matte: Madison Avenue
I findthis formula takes a little longer to dry than the Stila and it also wears off a little quicker, however it doesn't tend to wear off in a patchy kind of way, more in a faded way meaning it doesn't look scary by lunch time. Although it feels quite a thick, moussy consistency It actually feels super comfortable on my lips and isn't too drying. The shade Madison Avenue is a gorgeous Mauve nudey pink which I love. Get it here £11.50
Coloured Raine Cosmetics: Mars
I hadn't really reached for this much after first receiving it however I then heard its supposed to be a dupe for the cult Kat Von D Lolita lipstick so I thought hey let's give it another go. It's a deep dusty rose colour which I would probably only wear in the evening rather than everyday as it's a little dark for me (I am super pale). However when I'm wearing fake tan I really like it. It has build-able coverage and it tends to still look good when layering it. Get yours in the SALE here for £12.00
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics - Liptar - Liquid Lipstick: Memento
This one is a strange review from me, because I actually like it because it seems to do the opposite of what it's supposed to do. For some reason, on me, it doesn't really dry matte, it kind of stays wet looking. But I strangely kind of like it. It also isn't very long-lasting so I would only wear this when I know I'm only going to be out for a few hours. I think the thing that keeps me going back to it (as I can imagine you're all thinking, why does she even like it please haha) is the shade, I really, really like it it's a deepish, dusty, pinky nude and ahhh I'm obsessed. Maybe I need to find a dupe for it that is longer lasting. But, I had to include it! Get yours here $17.00
