Liquid Lipsticks Mini Review: HudaBeauty, Anastasia, Colourpop, KatVonD

Saturday, October 22, 2016

I am a recent liquid lipstick convert. I was happy and content in my traditional lipstick world and then miracle happened and beauty community introduced me to : LIQUID LIPSTICKS. I have only warmed up lightly to the idea of not having to reapply the lipstick at frequent intervals *(Side note: No more leaving the lipstick on the restroom counter)*.

I will be walking you through the pros and cons of liquid lipsticks as well as share my thoughts on the 4 liquid lipsticks I own.

  • Longevity
  • White clumps do not settle along the rim

·        Drying
·        Require prep-work
·        Less forgiving of mistakes

Note: If you love liquid lipsticks, be ready to prep your lips with a sugar-oil exfoliant to remove the dead cells, and then apply a light coat of lip balm. This will prevent the lipstick from accentuating every line on your lips.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Kathryn l $ 20 (INR 1400)

This liquid lipstick is a recent purchase. The shade Kathryn is a beautiful mid-tone rose shade, perfect for dusky skin tones. The formula is thick and goes opaque in a single swipe. Five minutes post-application, my lips start to pull and feels dry. To counter attack the dryness, I apply few dots of clear lip balm on my lips. The lipstick stays put for 9+ hours.

Note: If you feel this liquid lipstick is too dry for your lips, apply a little lip balm.

Next on my wish list is Allison and Ashton.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Cheerleader l $20 (INR 1400)

A very light-weight formula that doesn't feel drying on the lips. Cheerleader is a bright red with an equal proportion of pink. After 7 hours, the lipstick starts to crack. If I have to pick a favorite among the liquid lipstick gang, Huda Beauty matte liquid lipstick would be the winner.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita1 l $20 (INR 1400)

The thinnest and the most comfortable formula out of the lot. That's all the cons I can think about on this one. Lolita 1 is a boring version of MLJustSame, a dusty mauvy-pink.The formula is not as opaque as the rest and disappears from my lips in 3 hours. At the end of the third hour, I can just find a little color on the outer edges and that's it! Another major warning: 'Do not layer this lipstick as it flakes on the second coat'.

Colourpop Satin Liquid Lipstick in London Fog l $6 (INR 420)

This liquid lipstick does not settle down into a complete matte formula and is also the messiest one to apply. London Fog is a bright pink shade.  For reapplication, a visit to the restroom is mandatory as any attempts to try the "NO mirror Challenge" might make you look like the "JOKER". Colourpop liquid lipsticks are very inexpensive. Also, it stays put for 6 hours. Post the 5-hour mark, I can see cracks around my inner rim.


So what are your thoughts about liquid lipsticks ruling the market. Do you own any of the mentioned liquid lipsticks?
