Liquid Lipstick Collection
In general, I'm not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks. They are often to dry for my already-dehydrated lips and I prefer the option of being able to easily remove a lip product throughout the day.
I do have a small collection, and some shades/formulas that I really like so I thought I would share them all and continue my collection series! You can check out my blush and highlighter collections, which I've already swatched and written mini-reviews for.
Stila Stay All Day in Venezia
This is the first liquid lipstick I ever purchased, back when I thought I would enjoy a matte liquid lip. The color is a very bright coral and was released as a part of the summer collection. I don't think it's flattering on me unless I have a major tan, the shade makes my teeth look yellow so I don't wear it much. The formula does last very well throughout the day but it's more drying than I would like.
Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Magic Wand and Calypso
Out of all the ones I've tried, I must say this is my favorite formula. It is both comfortable and affordable! I'd love to get more the next time I place a Colourpop order. These don't dry completely matte but they last well with light eating and drinking. They also apply with just one coat, unlike some other comfortable liquid lipsticks. I have Magic Wand, a pinky beige nude, and Calypso, a darker mauve nude. For $5 these are an incredible find.
Tattoo Junkie Lip Paint in Pucker Up
This is a drugstore liquid lipstick which I haven't fully put to the test yet. I wore it as a part of my Christmas Day makeup look with red glitter on top of it. I haven't tried it without the glitter, but I've heard great things. With the glitter, it felt drying but it applies completely opaque and the color didn't transfer after it dried. Pucker Up is a bright red with orange undertones.
Ciate Liquid Velvet in Pin Up
I got this in an Ipsy bag and haven't worn it yet, although the color is a gorgeous mauve. It is very pigmented but since I haven't tested it I can't give it any other pros or cons.
Trust Fund Beauty Liquid Lipstick in K, Bye
Another Ipsy find, I've worn this pink/brown nude quite a few times! It's a darker nude than I usually go for but I loved it in Autumn. The formula is very similar to the Ultra Satin Lips but it's a tad thicker and it dries to more of a cream finish than a matte one. It's lasted around 5-6 hours on me depending on what I'm eating.
Nyx Liquid Suede in Cherry Skies
This gorgeous dark red is perfect for Autumn! It's very pigmented and not too drying because it never completely dries down. It is prone to transferring so I like to top it up every few hours, especially because it's such a dark color. I don't really like the strong chemical smell it has, either. Overall this is not my favorite formula but I prefer it to the Soft Matte Lip Creams, which were streaky as hell.
Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste
Another of my favorites! Namaste is a pale pinky beige nude, absolutely gorgeous on pale skin tones. This is a thicker, creamier formula that is very comfortable to wear. I've found that it can settle into the lip lines but it lasts well considering it doesn't dry down completely matte. I really need to wear this more often! I've always meant to pick up more of these. #TBT appealed to me when they first launched.
Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae in Red Chili
I got this sample in an Ipsy bag and I haven't worn it yet. Red Chili is a true-red with blue undertones, so it would be flattering on all skin tones. A thin layer will dry completely matte (based on my swatches) but it can transfer if applied thicker. Luckily a thin layer is all you need, it's so pigmented!
To show how likely these are to transfer, I let the swatches dry for about 15 minutes and then lightly pressed a paper towel onto the swatches. The Trust Fund Beauty smudged the most, then the Tarte and Nyx. In the areas where the Ultra Satin Lips had applied thickly they transferred, and the others didn't seem to budge!
Have you tried any of these liquid lipsticks? Are there any that you would recommend?
