Liquid Lipstick Loving

Wednesday, 8 February 2017

Liquid lipsticks were big news in 2016, and I don't think the hype looks set to stop any time soon. Over the past few months I've built up quite a selection from lots of different brands, so I thought I'd run through my favourites with you all...

OCC RTW Lip Tars*: Oh my gosh, these are AMAZING. They were the first product I'd ever tried from OCC and ever since I've been a big fan of the brand. Available in selection of gorgeous shades, these are SO pigmented and long-lasting. They're quite glossy when on which I like, although it does mean they can get a bit messy. I just love the finish of them and the two shades that I've got (I have a nudey colour as well as the bright pink pictured) are seriously so gorgeous, and unlike any other lip products I own. They even smell minty too!

NYX Lip Lingerie: Fast becoming a cult favourite, I couldn't not feature the NYX Lip Lingerie in this post. I bought a fair few shades a while back and since have been reaching for them on a regular basis. These nude liquid lipsticks dry very matte and as such can be a bit drying on the lips, but the colour pay-off is great and they're definitely a must for nude lovers. I would probably recommend trying to head to a NYX counter if you're thinking of getting some though, as I ordered mine online and lots of the shades I chose are so similar I don't really need to have all of them.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet*: Probably one of the first liquid lipsticks I tried, I love the Rouge Edition Velvets from Bourjois and completely recommend them. These are just that - ultra velvety on the lips, with a velvet finish that is oh-so easy to wear. They are ideal for everyday wear and a really great price too - and come in some gorgeous shades. I love them!

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paint*: Maybelline's Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are just that - very intense with incredible colour pay-off. Similar to the OCC offering, they are super glossy when on and come in some seriously gorgeous shades. If you're looking for ultra bright, bold and opaque colours, these are for you.

Bagsy Lip Velvet Soft Matte Lip Colour*: Possibly my least favourite of the bunch, Bagsy's Velvet Soft Matte liquid lipsticks are super soft and velvety, but for me the colour pay-off just doesn't compare to the other brands. I'd say these would be much more suited to someone wanting to venture into the world of liquid lipsticks but who prefers a more toned-down, subtle finish, as this is what these achieve.

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks: You can't do a round-up on liquid lipsticks and not include Too Faced's amazing Melted Liquid Lipsticks. I've had a couple of full-sized shades for a while now and have been obsessed with them, so when I got a little kit with three mini versions in for Christmas I was delighted. These are super glossy, super opaque and the applicator makes them really easy to apply. They come in a variety of gorgeous shades, and even have a matte range and a chocolate range (that actually smell like chocolate) out too. Love!
