Now, I don’t know about you but every single time I go to do a bit of a makeup shop I always buy a lipstick. I can’t help it, something comes over me and before I know it I have bought myself 10 new nude lipsticks, I’m not entirely sure how it happens to be honest. I am convinced that they just jump into my shopping basket at this point.
Usually, I can’t decide which ones I’d class as a “favourite” but I’ve gone off the basis of the ones I reach for the most and don’t regret putting on an hour later when it’s all come off after eating and drinking or it’s really dried out my lips and I just sit contemplating why I ever paid for it in the first place. However, I have managed to discover and re-discover some hidden gems that I’ve really been loving.
First up is the Too Faced Melted Matte in the shade: SELL OUT (£19) – I bought this back in June from Sephora during my trip to Rome and it’s heavenly to wear. It a super lovely, warm pinky/brown tone that really complements my skin tone and feels very comfortable to wear. You do get a good wear time out of these lipsticks too which is obviously what you want when you’re spending £19 on a lipstick! Worth the purchase and will re-buy when it runs out!
Secondly, is the Bare Minerals Statement Matte in the shade: FIRE (£17) – This was actually a gift that was given to me by my boyfriends Dad and I am loving his colour pick. Red isn’t a colour I would pick for myself (I own loads but hardly wear them) but it isn’t too red which I actually love, it has more of an orange undertone which suits me more and is a super cute spring colour if you want that extra pop! My only thing with this liquid lip is that it is definitely more of a velvety finish than a matte which makes it far more comfortable to have on but your wear time is reduced a little bit!
Lastly, is the KYLIE COSMETICS MATTE LIP in the shade: KOKO K (£20) – I bought this a long time ago back when Kylie Cosmetics first launched and the site crashed every time I tried to place my order but I have loved this lipstick ever since it arrived on my door step! It comes off slightly more pinky/purply on me but I really like it. It is SO long lasting it is unreal but when it dries, my god do you know about it! It’s not uncomfortable, you are just aware of it sometimes. I combat it by putting lip balm on before and throughout the day when it gets a little much and it’s all good! Obviously, my only downside is that it does ship from the USA so you have to factor in delivery time and the cost of customs (mine, unfortunately, was quite a bit).
So, there you have it. My current higher end liquid lip favourites, what are yours?
