Hello my lovelies!
Today I want to justify my love of lipsticks for all of you…
Ok so there’s no justification for the obscene amount of lipsticks I own, but I’m still normal, right?
Because I own so many formulas and brands, I want to specifically discuss my top five liquid lipstick formulas. I want to start by defining what a liquid lipstick means to me:
- A liquid formula that dries down completely matte on the lips
- Minimal to no transference of product once it is fully dry
- Significant Pigmentation
- Long lasting
- Moisturizing level
Given these guidelines, I want to share with y’all my top five liquid lipsticks in terms of formula, color selection, and lasting power.
5. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Do these dry matte: Yes, however it takes at least 3-5 minutes to fully dry down.
Are these transfer-proof: Yes, unless you are eating oily foods or drinking liquids heavily.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is absolutely there, however I do dip into the tube at least three times for both my top and bottom lips.
Are these long lasting: Out of my top five, this one is the least long lasting for me, however these do stick down for a good 3-4 hours, so long as I’m not eating or drinking heavily.
Are these moisturizing: Once again, out of my top five, these are the driest. Although I have to prep my lips big time for these, the dryness does not create discomfort for me.
4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
Do these dry matte: Yes, after about 2-3 minutes.
Are these transfer-proof: Out of the five, these babies transfer the most, but it is not drastic.
Pigmentation: While these are overall consistent, I find that the blue and purple shades lack pigmentation in particular, and often appear streaky.
Are these long lasting: While these lip creams do transfer more than I’d like, they absolutely last a decent amount of time so long as I don’t touch them.
Are these moisturizing: YES! The whipped texture of these lip creams make them SO COMFY to wear.
3. Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick
Do these dry matte: Yes, and arguably the quickest out of my top five.
Are these transfer-proof: Yes. Transfer from this product is nonexistent unless oily foods and heavy drinking are involved.
Pigmentation: I can get away with 1-2 dips into the tube easily, however the short wand can create some difficulty with picking up product inside the tube.
Are these long lasting: The actual lipstick does break down on me the quickest, however it is the most gradual fade out of the five. No butthole mouth for me!
Are these moisturizing: To me, these are neither particularly drying nor moisturizing, but they do still sit very nicely on the lips.
2. Too Faced Melted Matte Liquefied Matte Lipstick
Do these dry matte: Yes, after at least 1 minute.
Are these transfer-proof: Even if food and drink is involved, these tend to fade gradually instead of straight up transfer.
Pigmentation: While the wand is long, the applicator is quite tiny, meaning that I have to dip at least 2 times to cover my lips completely.
Are these long lasting: As I mentioned, these lipsticks tend to fade gradually, so in my eyes, the lasting power is fantastic. I can wear these an entire day and minimally touch up once, depending on how I’m feeling.
Are these moisturizing: I can’t say that these have any moisturizing properties, but they sure aren’t drying. These lipsticks make you forget that you have anything on, which is something I adore.
1. Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick
Do these dry matte: Yes, after a minute or less.
Are these transfer-proof: If I’m going out or partying, these are my go-to lipsticks. These NEVER transfer.
Pigmentation: Out of the five, I think these are the most pigmented, not only due to formula, but also do to the applicator picking up maximum product. I can get away with a single dip.
Are these long lasting: Absolutely. These only fade when I eat oily foods, and never break down during the day.
Are these moisturizing: These liquid lipsticks are the tiniest bit drying, but a good layer of lip balm beforehand easily fixes this problem for me.
