Let’s Talk: Liquid Lipsticks

Let’s Talk: Liquid Lipsticks

Who doesn’t love a liquid lipstick? They have been the go-to for many of us this year. And with brands just bringing out some amazing formulas, we just can’t help to lust over. Personally, I’m still a huge lover of my ~ OG ~ MAC lipsticks. But HUDA Beauty has made me slightly obsessed with the liquid life. And to be honest, before HUDA I really didn’t like liquid lipsticks. Either they are not the right colour or I haven’t got on with the formula. But today we are here to talk about my mini collection. I’ve done a post on my favourite lipsticks a while ago which you can check out >> here <<

NYX Liquid Lipsticks

NYX is a brand I’ve ended up loving for everything BUT their liquid lipsticks. I just can’t get on with them. It might be the colours or the formulas, but they just don’t seem to work. The top swatch is the Lingerie range, embellishment, and I liked the formula. This one was quite patchy though, so a couple coats are needed. But the colour, I just don’t like it. As you can tell it’s nothing like my others, and it was a risky purchase. The next two are the soft matte liquid lipsticks in Monte Carlo and San Paulo. I like the colours they are quite bold. Nevertheless, the formula wasn’t for me. It was too wet, took forever to dry and was too hard to apply. Please, if you have tried NYX liquid lipsticks and have a fave, let me know below. *fingers crossed* I find one I like!

Rimmel & Bourjois Liquid Lipstick

Ok, these are polar opposites for me. One I love the other not so much. So let’s begin with the latter. Bourjois Ole Flamingo was a risky purchase for the girl who loves a pinky nude. It’s bright pink ~ honestly, why did I purchase this? The main downfall is the shade, it also stays wet as you can see (fourth shade from my wrist). Which for me is super annoying as my hair just gets stuck in it. Ok, now let’s talk about my new fave. Rimmel Stay Matte in Blush is beaut! The colour is actually perfect. Also, love how it applies, love the formula. *gimme more* This dries to matte so quickly which I just love about it  – defo recommend!

HUDA Beauty Liquid Lipsticks

I won’t ramble on about this for too long as I have a whole dedicated post to them which you can read >>here<<. But I would say if you are unsure get the mini kit. It has allowed me to experiment with shades I might never have worn. I love Sugar Mamma, it has become one of my go-to liquid lipsticks. Also, they do last a good time on the lip, but with food and drink, they do budge.

There we are! My liquid lipstick collection. It was slightly bigger before I put this up but I cleared out a couple due to having them for years and they were just too far gone. What are you favourite liquid lipsticks? Let me know below!  Covet Luxe Logo

    I am a huge fan of liquid lipsticks – I find that actually lipsticks are so hard to work with, snap and become strange shapes over time! I actually love NYX, but if you haven’t already, you should definitely try their Liquid Suede range as it’s my favourite although it can be a little dry, but you find that with matte lipsticks that give longevity.. 🙈

    I love Rimmel Stay Matte liquid lipsticks! I’ve got three of them already and am deffo going to get more. I love how quickly it dries and the fact that you can’t actually feel you’ve got anything on your lips, it blends in with the skin perfectly. And it stays on for so long! Definitely my favourite so far.

    I genuinely love the NYX lip lingeries! They’re my go to for formula but I have heard such amazing things about rimmel stay matte so I really need to get myself one of those. I tend to stick to more satin lipsticks nowadays as my lips have been so dry and matte makes them so much worse!

    I feel the same about NYX liquid lipsticks, I love NYX as a brand and I was so excited to try a Lip Lingerie. Unfortunately although I love the shade, it’s super drying on my lips and makes them feel all chapped and nasty. I quite like the Rimmel ones, the shades are amazing but I have to apply a couple of layers with it otherwise it looks a bit patchy. My fave liquid lipsticks so far are Tanya Burr’s matte lipsticks, they’re not drying whatsoever, the finish is gorgeous & it lasts hours! x

    I stopped wearing liquid lipsticks since they were too dry for me but I recently placed an order on Colourpop and ordered some liquid lipsticks and their formula is amazing, especially the ultra satin lipsticks, they feel like velvet on the lips. The NYX soft matte lip creams were a hit for me, I have two shades both really nice.

    I love my liquid lipsticks! I’d say swatch NYX matte lip cream in Cannes, that’s my go to for a tiny bit of colour! I’m yet to try the lip lingerie line because of so many mixed reviews!
    You have such a varied collection, I love it!!

    I don’t own a lot of liquid lipsticks just because my lips are super dry and they always seem to dry them out more. I personally love Rimmel Provocalips, those last for whole day and aren’t drying. xx

    Ouuuu those red swats are AMAZING!!! I need to look into these kind of lippys more!! In the winter I can get quite chapped lips, I wonder how these would fair? Ever tested them out when chapped? xxx

    Oooh! I haven’t tried anything from Huda Beauty, but I LOVE Jeffree Star and KVD liquid lipsticks. Huda Beauty’s colors look really pretty, though. Great post! 🙂

    I’m not a massive make up fan so I didn’t even realise that liquid lipstick was a thing! These sound a lot better than using a normal lipstick. Especially when the lipstick starts to go down. As you said it makes a strange shape!

    I agree with you about the NYX colors. I like the formula alright but the color is just a little off!

    NYX Liquid Lipsticks are some of my favorite ! They are definitely the most long lasting ones I’ve ever seen!

    It’s such a shame that you couldn’t get on with the NYX lippies as they’re one of my faves! My absolute favourite shade is Exotic and I really love the formula as well although I do need to make sure I’ve applied lip balm. I haven’t tried any of the other liquid lipsticks but I really want to try Huda Beauty. My go to liquid lipstick brands are Kylie Cosmetics and Jeffree Star Cosmetics :)x
