Liquid lipsticks are for sure a trend at the moment and more and more brands hop on the bandwagon. I am always sceptical of trends because a) they don’t last “Really, you are still wearing this in 2015?” and b) just because everybody owns it doesn’t mean that it is really great.
Since I am a make-up-my-own-mind-kind I just ordered a few liquid lipsticks from Anastasia Beverly Hills and from Dose of Colors (review, swatches and comparison to the ABH ones will follow). Below you will find swatches of each lip product and also me wearing them so you can tell by yourself if you are keen on trying them or not.
Anastasia Beverly Hills (known for their great eyebrow products) provides a huge range of colors when it comes to their lip products, even some unique ones like blue or black. Since I wanted to buy shades that I don’t own yet and also wasn’t willing to let my bank account bleed I “just” ordered six lippies. Five of them are liquid lipsticks and one ist a lipgloss.
The application of them are easy and not difficult since they doesn’t dry quick. The product description says “This ultra-saturated liquid formula delivers an intense shot of matte pigment in one easy swipe. A single application gives you smear-resistant coverage that stays put for hours.” And yes, I agree, it is smudge proof and longlasting, unless you eat a burger, but the majority of lip products fade away when you eat something, that’s just normal in my opinion.
Before applying it I always use a lip balm or sometimes a lip scrub. Another pro about these babies are that the color actually wears the same on your lips as it shows up in the tube. It doesn’t feel sticky or weird on your lips. I remove the lipstick with my “Garnier Mizellen Reinigungswasser” without having any problems.

Trend or not I really like liquid lipsticks and I sure will buy some other colors in the near future. Those of Anastasia Beverly Hills are available at their website or at Macy’s if you’d like to check it out.
