Liquid lipsticks are taking over the makeup world, ya'll. Regular lipsticks are becoming less and less popular with this latest trend and I'm trying to see what the hype is about!
Liquid lipsticks are supposed to provide long-lasting color and are supposed to last all day. I figured I'm climb on board this liquid lipstick fad and try to find the perfect formulation since girl doesn't have all day to reapply lipstick.
First up in my hunt for the perfect liquid lipstick is Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color. These retail for around $6-8 and claim to provide a cushion of moisture to your lips while having a ton of color payoff and staying matte and in place all day long.
I picked up the colors Nude Thrill and Pink Charge so I'd have a neutral and hot pink to choose from. I've worn these every day for the past two weeks and have to admit that I despise these liquid lipsticks. While they do feel hydrating on the lips, they never dry to a matte finish. They also have a strange scent that's super strong (smells like a balloon- weird, I know) and the color slides all over the place. No one looks cute with lipstick smeared all over the place- leave that to the Joker.
I'm so sad that these didn't work out! I wanted so badly to like this liquid lipstick line but I just can't force myself to keep using them.
Stay tuned for my next post in my hunt for the perfect liquid lipstick series coming next week!
