In case you haven't noticed, I've fallen hard for the liquid lipstick trend. If I can put something on that'll pretty much need a chisel to remove at the end of the day, and that I won't have to touch up throughout the day, I'm sold. Most of my liquid lipsticks are in neutral colors (surprise, surprise) that work as everyday shades, but I do have a couple bolder options. My collection is getting a little out of control, but I still do find use for every single one.
THE BULLETPROOF ONE | Everyone has heard raves about the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, and if you saw my review of them you'll know I agree. These are definitely the longest-lasting liquid lipsticks that I own, but on me, they're not terribly drying. These last all day long on me, and I'll still need something heavy duty like some olive oil to remove it at the end of the day. The range of colors offered is absolutely stunning, and while I only have neutral colors, I'm dying to get my hands on some of the bolder shades.
THE BUDGET BUYS | One of my favorite liquid lipstick formulas is that of the Sephora Cream Lip Stains (review). They're a more mousse-y formula, so they're not drying on me in the slightest. They don't last quite as long as the Kat Von D ones, but they come pretty close. Marvelous Mauve (13) is my favorite lip shade ever I'm pretty sure, so these will always be a winner to me. If you're looking for something ultra cheap, definitely pick up a few of the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips (review). They're quite liquid-y and therefore really drying honestly, but I still really like them. They offer so many colors and they last quite a while on the lips, too. I really want to try their new Ultra Satin Lips as well.
THE UNDER-RATED ONE | I don't think enough people talk about the Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks (review). They're probably my favorite formula. They're super mousse-y, almost to the point of being more solid than liquid, but they just glide so easily onto the lips and aren't drying at all. Despite being so comfortable on the lips, they still last all day long. I've been meaning to pick up more shades since I tried the first set of four I bought, but I still haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm sure that'll change in the near future.
THE ONES I HAD TO FIGHT FOR | Being a neutral-lover, I've had my fair share of disappointment when I've fallen in love with swatches of a certain color, only to find it sold out (or when I have the shades I want in my cart and then they disappear before I complete my order *cough Kylie Lip Kits cough*). Cue me refreshing the brands' websites multiple times a day waiting for a restock. When I heard that the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny was being restocked, I jumped on it. I set an alarm and everything - luckily it was restocked during my lunchbreak. After sitting through the website almost crashing from the amount of traffic, it was finally mine. And it's worth every bit of hype. I haven't tried it out enough to have a full review on the formula, but I can say that I love it. And the color is the perfect dusty rosey mauve shade. The other super hyped-up shade I managed to get my hands on is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Dusty Rose. This one wasn't as much of a fight - I happened to check the website and find it in stock, and I didn't hesitate one bit in placing an order. I'm actually not crazy about the formula of this one - it doesn't fully set on me, so while it's comfortable on the lips, it transfers and smears easily. But the color is perfect.
THE NEW ADDITION | As I'm writing this, the new Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipsticks are on their way to me. I picked up four shades: Noisette, Petale de Rose, Lychee, and Cassis (speaking of things I had to fight for - these four shades are now out of stock!) based on swatches. I've heard nothing but good things about these so far, so I've got really high hopes. Expect a review up in the coming weeks.
