I fell hard and fast for the liquid lipstick trend when it started. Any of my close friends can tell you about how I obsessed for weeks over the Kylie Jenner Lipkits when they first came out, until I finally bought one.
I think it was that phenomenon that started my interest in liquid lipsticks. Although I never ended up falling in love with Kylie Lipkit (I bought Koko K and think it’s a bit patchy and flaky, especially given the $$), I have found some tried and true brands that I genuinely love and wanted to share with you today.
Ofra Liquid Lipsticks are probably the least matte of the bunch I’m sharing. I’d describe the formula as semi-matte and creamy. It has a mousse-like consistency. It’s long wearing, but it definitely will transfer and need to be reapplied throughout the day. This brand is great for anyone who avoids liquid lipstick because they normally are too drying. I am wearing the shade Tuscany here, but I also own Miami Fever and love it, especially in the fall.
Stila was one of my first liquid lipsticks. I cannot even tell you how many of my friends have purchased Patina after trying mine, because it is such a great color on everyone. This formula is matte, though it will transfer just little bit. I can usually apply this in the morning, but will have to reapply a few times throughout the day. Although I don’t find this drying, I know some people say it is, so keep that in mind if you have an aversion to matte products. I also own Beso, a great long-wearing red, and Aria, which is a great lip if you’re going a bit more vampy.
I spoke about this liquid lipstick on my instagram a couple of weeks ago, and it has quickly become my new favorite. This stuff dries almost instantly. There is no transfer at all and it is the longest-wearing of the three. I’ve eaten an apple and this hasn’t gone anywhere. It’s definitely drying, but I didn’t find it to be uncomfortable. In fact, it almost felt like I wasn’t wearing anything. School Girl is a great strawberry color, and I quickly went online and bought Virgin and Brunch after falling in love with this formula. I can see myself collecting them all!
