If you haven't read the first post in my new series The Hunt for the Perfect Liquid Lipstick, I'm basically trying to get on board with the liquid lipstick trend by finding the perfect one. Liquid lipsticks are supposed to provide long-lasting color and are supposed to last all day. Last week I tried Maybelline's Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks and I wasn't impressed; the color payoff was great but they transferred easily and never dried to a matte finish.

This week I tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the color Instanbul (a true pink shade). These retail for $6 and come in 12 different shades and claim to have a velvety feel while drying matte and lasting all day

First off, I was disappointed to find that there's no true nude shade. While I love a hot pink and berry lip, I'm looking for an everyday darker pink-nude color. Regardless, I love the formulation of these liquid lipsticks! I would definitely agree that they dry matte and the staying power is amazing; they last for a solid 3-4 hours throughout drinking coffee (like, multiple cups... because I'm obsessed with coffee), water and eating! 

Because there's no true nude shade I'm still on the hunt for the perfect liquid lipstick. If NYX adds a nude in this collection I would be super pumped and would stock up immediately! 

Stay tuned for my next post in my hunt for the perfect liquid lipstick series coming next week! Do you have any recommendations?
