BEAUTY | New In: Liquid Lipsticks
I was, very kindly, recently sent a couple of bullet proof liquid lipsticks and I couldn’t wait to see the results for myself!
The lovely Sarah from Beauty and the Fox sent me over two of her long lasting liquid lipsticks and I couldn’t wait to finally wear a liquid lipstick that wouldn’t come off!
I am definitely someone who will do a full face of makeup and skip the lipstick, as I’m constantly eating and can’t stand reapplying/the faffing etc. So to have a lip product like this in my collection is amazing.
The two shades I received were Sassy Z* and Aussie Rose*. Sassy Z is a deep rose-y pink (with a tiny hint of purple) and Aussie Rose is your perfect ‘rose pink’ shade with a slight shimmer to it. Depending on whether you go for the matte or glossy option, you will receive the relevant matte or gloss lip product to apply over the top of your chosen shade. Along with an ‘Ooops! Remover’ to clean up any mistakes.
Sarah advises to apply three layers of the lip shade – bottom, middle and top layer – to ensure the lipstick lasts all throughout the day. You then apply the one top coat of either the matte or gloss option and you’re good to go!
When you first apply this lipstick, you may feel a slight tingling feeling on your lips, especially if they’re dry, and this is because of the SD40 cosmetic grade alcohol within the formula. It’s nothing uncomfortable, only lasts for a few seconds and goes away after a few uses.
I wore this lipstick for 8 hours the other day, through eating and drinking as well and it stayed put the whole day. I honestly couldn’t believe it and I’m seriously impressed! It doesn’t smudge or bleed and looks just as vibrant at the end of the day, as it did when first applied. I highly recommend purchasing at least one shade, especially if you’re someone like me who hates high maintenance lip products..
If my gushing isn’t enough to believe me, then head over to this post on my Instagram page where I’ve popped up a little video of the swatches.
