The Liquid Lipstick Roundup | My Top 1020.4.16
2015 for me was a year of great discovery when it came to lip products, and it's safe to say that thus far, 2016 has been no different - I'm addicted to liquid lipsticks. So, to pay homage to the beautifulness that is the liquid to matte revolution, I thought I'd do a round up of my top 10 favourite liquid lipstick shades!
As you can probably tell, my favourite brand of liquid lipstick is Anastasia Beverly Hills, I own pretty much every shade and I'm so in love with their formula, colour range and packaging. My favourite shades are: Stripped, Crush, Ashton, Sepia, Kathryn, Sarafine, Heathers and Paint.
A more recent discovery of mine has been the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks. I finally took the plunge and nabbed these when I made a Sephora haul a few weeks ago, and I'm so glad I did; the formula is extremely lightweight but super matte and SO long wearing. I went out for dinner wearing Lolita 2 and it seriously looked identical afterwards to when I applied it earlier that day!
Stripped: A beautiful nude shade with a peach undertone, it's the perfect not too light, not too dark nude which would suit any skin tone.
Crush: Another nude, SHOCK. Crush is way more pink than stripped but still has enough brown in it to be classed as a nude, this looks gorgeous on paler skin tones as well as deeper toned gals (and guys!).
Ashton: I can't even with this colour. This is my new favourite of the ABH lipsticks, it's a beautiful rusty nude with a burnt orange type undertone, such a unique and pretty shade I die.
Sepia: I lost my shit when this got released last year, it's the perfect grey toned brown and I love that this looks different on every skin tone, it's so individual yet I find it's so wearable.
Kathryn: In this photo it looks much more pink, but this is actually a stunning deep raspberry, paired with its super matte formula this is such a standout.
Sarafine: This is hands down the most beautiful hollywood red shade I've ever found. For anyone who's tried MAC 'ruby woo' this is the liquid lipstick equivalent - eat your heart out Marilyn!
Heathers: This is a gorgeous oxblood colour which is perfect for the autumn and winter time, if you know my makeup style at all you know I'll wear this all year round, and if you love experimenting with dark lippies I'd definitely recommend this one.
Paint: Now, I know what you're thinking, a blue lipstick? YES. This is probably the most unique lipstick I own, it's a metallic royal blue which is actually so pretty on the lips - I love rocking this with a winged liner and a strong brow.
Bow n Arrow: There seems to be a recurring nude theme in these favourites, oops. But this is a gorgeous 'greige' grey toned nude shade and it's so complimentary to my pale skin. I can't rave enough about this formula, it's so perfect for day and night time wear and I can't wait to create some looks using this.
Lolita 2: Ahh Lolita. Firstly, Lolita is one of my favourite names of all time. Secondly, this is the most beautiful rusty, faded brick red I have ever seen, it's such a unique colour and it applies like a dream. I love this for a pop of colour on the face without being 'too much' (not that there's such a thing as too much in my book, lol.)
And there you have it, my top 10 liquid lipsticks. No doubt I'll be adding some more to my collection very soon, you know me! I really want to try some new liquid lipsticks from different brands, so please leave your recommendations below; I really like the look of Dose Of Colours and Ofra.
