What makes them great?[accordion] [acc_item title=”Texture”]These feel comfortable on the lips, the earlier formulas felt a little drying and highlighted dehydrated skin.
[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”Finish”]They dry matte which in my opinion makes lips look bigger, you can do the illusion of highlight in the center and shade under the bottom lip for extra impact.[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”Colour”]I’ve yet to find one that isn’t highly pigmented, the colour range is incredible too, there’s a myriad of shades from nude to acid brights[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”Longevity”]Many of the liquid lipsticks I’ve tried can withstand the food and beverages that pass my lips and still look untouched. I also like the fact they lightly stain so if you only want a hint of colour you can apply and tissue off.
[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”Application”] Easy peasy, can you apply gloss? yes, then you can apply these. Granted some have better applicators than others but if you apply a lip pencil then fill in with the liquid lipstick you will have bullet proof lips my friend.
Of course I wanted to show some swatches of the colours so you can see the finish and pigmentation.

I actually started to write ‘My Top Picks’ then had to erase it as I picked pretty much everyone… I’m wearing 3,5,8 a lot lately as I’m going through a soft pink and bright orange phase.
