Liquid Lipstick Review

Hey hey!

(Featured song: “Stay Stay Stay” by Taylor Swift)

I’m back with another review. I have recently discovered the different brands of liquid lipsticks I have acquired over some time and will be reviewing them today. I have included drugstore and non-drugstore brands. Let’s get right into it.

“Echo” by Kat Von D

  • $24CDN
  • Kat Von D never ceases to amaze everyone with her makeup collection. “Echo” is an enchanting deep navy blue colour, definitely an eye catcher
  • Full coverage and long wear
  • Dries completely matte, but I found it to be too dry for my lips. It’s not a painfully dry feeling, just a tad uncomfortable
  • Bold

“Recollection” by MAC

  • $24CDN
  • I do prefer MAC lipsticks in general to other more expensive brands because they glide on much easier and your lips stay moisturized
  • This is a majestic purple, a colour that leaves an impression
  • This formulation does not have strong longevity in comparison to Kat Von D’s liquid lipsticks. Nonetheless, it will stay longer than regular lipsticks

“Kiss Fatal” by Rimmel

  • $8CDN
  • This liquid lipstick claims to last for 16 hours and is ‘kiss proof’. I have tested two shades from their range, and it does last a pretty long time and it is non-transferrable
  • This product requires two steps. First, you apply the colour on your lips. Secondly, apply the ‘lock & shine’ step.
  • Disadvantages: its sticky and not a matte liquid lipstick
  • I would not re-purchase because there is nothing too special about this product. The colours could be better and more unique and there is definitely better formulation out there for a liquid lipstick

“It’s Happening” by Too Faced

  • $25CDN
  • I am in love with this line! This shade is a bright magenta which suits all skin types. The formulation is one of all-time favourites, it’s very comfortable to wear and it is long wear
  • It dries completely matte and does not dry the lips out
  • Rich and creamy formula

“Always Red” by Sephora

  • $18CDN
  • This has become my all-time favourite red lip product
  • It dries matte and is not too dry for the lips
  • Great formulation because the product is very lightweight on the lips and is long wear
  • There are so many shades of red, but I found this one to be a classic bold red
  • Will continue to re-purchase for the rest of my life

“Rio” by Anastasia Beverly Hills”

  • $26CDN
  • If you’re looking for an electric hot pink with a blue undertone look no further
  • ABH liquid lipsticks are amazing, long wear, dry matte, great colour payoff and texture
  • These lipsticks smell great, the products are low in scent which I always prefer
  • Layering this product up will not do it any good. One or two layers is more than enough

“Soft Spoken” by NYX

  • $10CDN
  • The colour is more of a dark nudish-rose, but not brown
  • Amazing colour payoff and texture
  • Dries matte with a hint of transfer but nothing too crazy
  • Long lasting, but might need a bit of a touch up here and there
  • One tiny complaint would be the smell. It’s a bit of an odd plastic scent but the quality does overcome this small flaw
  • NYX is a great affordable brand

***I would suggest using a primer before applying any lip product. I use the “Prep and Prime Lip” by MAC, which retails for $20CDN***

What I have learned is that most liquid lipsticks have an odd scent, but nothing too strongly atrocious.

Until next time!
