My Top 4 Favourite Liquid Lipsticks
s a lippie fanatic, I am always on a hunt for the perfect liquid lipstick. In my opinion, an ideal liquid lipstick should be creamy in texture, non-drying, comfortable to wear, and rich in pigment. If it is long-wearing that would be even better; if not, it has to be easy to re-apply at the minimum. Among the many liquid lippies that I have tried, these products are my absolute favourite of all time.
Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème (28 USD @Sephora)
As the name suggested, Marc Jacobs’ liquid lipstick has an incredibly creamy texture which is not drying whatsoever (which could be a problem for a lot of liquid lipstick formula on the market) and is very comfortable to wear. It is opaque and rich in colour, one swipe on the lips and you are good to go. Among the 4 liquid lip products that I am going to mention here, this one is the least long lasting of them all, but it is also one of the most moisturizing ones and the easiest to take off at the end of the day. If you like a to get yourself some good nude lippies, definitely check this one out.
2. Smashbox’s Be Legendary Liquid Lipstick (24 USD @Sephora)
Looking for a comfortable and long wearing liquid lipstick? Smashbox has got you covered. Not only it is long wearing and comfortable to wear, it also has a wide colour selection, from nude to bold colours, creamy satin to metallic finishes. I found that the lighter metallic shades are on the sheerer side and might require some effort to build up the colour. It is however, by no means patchy and the colour layers well. So with some patience, you can totally make it work. The unconventionally shaped doe foot applicator might seem a little intimidating at first, but it works and it hugs the lips perfectly, applying the perfect amount of product every single time.
3. BITE Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick (24USD @ Sephora) Creamy, pigmented and nourishing; this is the perfect liquid lipstick for those who are looking for a liquid lipstick for their chapped lips (hands up with you are like me). With 30 shades to choose from, there is always something for everyone. Most importantly, BITE Beauty lip products are claimed to be made with all natural and food grade ingredients. Who said that you cannot chuck down a whole burger while your lip colour being spot on?
4. Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick (18 USD @ Jouer Cosmetics)
Among all the lippies mentioned here, the Jouer liquid lipstick has the thinnest texture of them all. Don’t get me wrong, it is by no means drying, it is just not as moisturizing as the others. However, because of its thin and highly pigmented lip hugging formula, it is perfect for those who prefer a more traditional liquid lipstick formula where it dries down to a long wear, non-sticky lip colour that does not transfer. If you love metallic shades, Jouer makes sure that you have plenty of colours to choose from!
