5 must-have liquid lipsticks

As promised to cover a variety of topics this year, today I am sharing some of my favorite liquid lipsticks. Liquid lipsticks are all the rage and every brand is coming out with their own versions. Below are 5 liquid lipsticks that I have personally tried and love:


Colourpop Ultra Matte: They are very affordable at $6 each. The color payoff is really great but can be a tad on the drying side. I usually add a layer of lip balm underneath and it's not an issue. The color lasts for 4-5 hours.

Anastasia Beverly Hills (a Macy's exclusive): These lipsticks apply so easily and dry to a lovely matte finish. The color "Pure Hollywood" is my every day lipstick. They are somewhat moisturizing and do not dry out the lips.

Lime Crime Velvetines: The pigmentation is insane. One swipe is all you need. I got the color "Cashmere" which is a nude shade with grey undertones - very popular lately. I love that it's slightly edgier than your typical nude lipstick.

Stila Stay-all day: True to its name, these Stila liquid lipsticks stay all day. It does take about 5 minutes to dry down completely matte. Once it dries, it does not budge even after eating. I absolutely love the color "Beso". It's a true red with just a tiny hint of blue. I wear it with the Milani "02 True Red" lip liner and they go perfectly well together.

Too Faced Melted: The concept is the same but they're not your typical liquid lipsticks. They dry down into a matte finish but do not completely set. Because of that, these lipsticks are lightweight and feel comfortable on the lips. The pigmentation is great but they do not last all day (probably 2-3 hours). If you are looking for a liquid lipstick with a semi-matte finish, you would like these.

Loving those more nude options. I am not much of a beauty person, but I like liquid lipsticks.
