Lip lacquers, liquid lipsticks, lip stains, velvet, matte, glossy, whatever you would like to call it. There has been a lot of liquid type lipsticks released especially in the last year or two. Recently I picked up some of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets and I gotta say they are definitely one of the best if not the best out there.
What I look for in a liquid lipstick, other than the colour of course, is how comfortable it is to wear, how long it lasts, how it reapplies, and how well it lasts/wears off. I find some liquid lipsticks can be very drying and cakey feeling (mainly the matte ones) which can make it uncomfortable or it can make them not wear very well as they start to like crack and crumble off leaving like strange bits on your lips. Yucky. HELPFUL TIP: Wear a lip balm underneath. For the matte liquid lipsticks in general, this will help make them much nicer to wear.
I love the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets because they have a lightweight smooth texture and are so much more comfortable to wear. They don’t go super dry and feel yuck on your lips, they last well and are also reappliable. I have the colours 05 Olé Flamingo ! and 07 Nud-ist. Both gorgeous colours. Not to mention drugstore price. Amazing.
I have a few other liquid lipsticks I like too. I really want to try the new Smashbox ones, they look really pretty!
Have you tried these before and what did you think? And also tell me what liquid lipsticks you have found to be really good??
Hope you all enjoyed this post! 🙂
