Liquid Lipstick Picks

Hello everyone!

I pretty much only ever wear liquid lipsticks nowadays. I find that they last a lot longer on the lips than regular lipsticks, and more often than not they don't need to be re applied throughout the day. Aside from being convenient to wear, I love liquid lipsticks as they come in a range of gorgeous shades (even though I wear nudes 99% of the time!) and they apply beautifully on the lips. If you can't already tell by the title of this post; today I am sharing with you my top liquid lipsticks.

Jeffree Star X Manny MUA Velour Liquid Lipstick in Daddy:
Although this liquid lipstick was limited edition and unfortunately isn't available any longer, it's still one of my favourites so I just had to include it in this post. There will be a theme in this post as I do like a dark brown lip colour, and Daddy is of course one of those! The shade is actually similar to Dolce K by Kylie Cosmetics. 

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin:
Celebrity Skin is the only other Jeffree Star liquid lipstick I own. This one is from the permanent collection so it is still available to purchase, and is a little different to Daddy. Celebrity skin is a little lighter than Daddy and it also has a little bit of a purple/pink undertone in certain lights. The shade applies beautifully on the lips and really doesn't need building up that much as the shade is really opaque to begin with. I love this shade!

Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipsticks:
I am a huge Kylie Lip Kit fan but I don't use the lip liners that come with the lipsticks all that often. The liquid lipsticks, on the other hand, are amazing. They are very similar in consistency and application to the Jeffree Star lipsticks, and they last just as well on the lips too. I would say that the Kylie lipsticks are a little more drying but it's nothing that a bit of exfoliation and moisturisation before application can't solve! I have about 9 different shades, some of which are miniature versions from the Holiday 2016 collection, and there are swatches of all of the shades at the beginning of this post so that you can compare the shades. My favourite shades are Dolce K, Moon, Ginger, Love Bite and Vixen. 

NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick in Beauty Mark:
I own three of the NYX Lip Lingerie Lipsticks but my favourite shade has to be Beauty Mark as it's the typical shade that I wear everyday. Beauty Mark is a very dark brown shade that dries down to a matte finish. I am not the biggest fan of the applicators on the NYX Lip Lingerie lipsticks as they are quite long, meaning it makes precise application quite difficult. I do like to apply this using a lip brush instead of the applicator, or I would end up with weird looking lips! This does take a little more building up to get an even application as it's not quite as opaque as other liquid lipsticks I own, but I really don't mind adding a second layer. 

Makeup Revolution Matte Liquid Lipstick in Noble:
I have been using this lipstick for about a month now and I have been pleasantly surprised by it. I have talked about this in a few other posts but I wanted to touch on it again today. I took this on holiday with me and it was pretty much the only lip product I wore whilst I was away. The shade is similar to Ginger by Kylie Cosmetics, and it's also very similar in consistency. The longevity of this lipstick is really good and doesn't budge from my lips once it's on! I do find this a little more drying than the Kylie lipsticks but it doesn't bother me too much and I will still continue to love and wear this. 

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour in Addiction:
The final product that I am going to be sharing in this post is the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour in the shade Addiction. This is one of the only non-nude lipstick that I have featured in this post, and the reason for that is simply because I barely wear colour on my lips. If I am wearing colour on my lips, however, chances are that it's this one. Addiction is a dark plum shade and it smells amazing! These Revlon lipsticks have more of a whipped formula and are definitely a lot thicker than other liquid lipsticks I own. In terms of longevity; this isn't the most long lasting lipstick but it does stain my lips. This means that when the actual lip product wears off throughout the day, my lips still have a nice berry tint to them. 

Do you prefer regular lipsticks or liquid lipsticks? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
