Guys, you know how much I love a good matte liquid lipstick. Actually you know that I ONLY love matte liquid lipsticks! Oh, and if you ever seen me you know that my brows are always on point and that’s because of the best esthetician in Chicago, but also because of Anastasia Beverly Hill’s eyebrow gel.
When I found myself at a Sephora with Anastasia’s lip products I knew I had to go for it. I mean, if Anastasia can help my eyebrows look good all the time then I knew she could work magic for my lips. Anastasia is the Houdini of makeup (just as I suspected) because I was not disappointed by the matte liquid lipstick formula. The formula is vibrant, lightweight, and long-lasting (as long as you aren’t slurping down ramen or smearing pizza all over your face).
Since I own 40+ lipstick that mostly seems to be purple and pink, I decided to go with some colors outside of the norm for me. I scooped up a red-orange, or paparika-red according to Anastasia, called “Spicy” and a nude “milk with a hint of peach” called Milkshake. With this formula you only need to only apply two layers to get a super long-lasting and rich color, but make sure to be quick because the formula dries pretty quickly. The brush that comes with is pretty standard for any liquid matte lipstick and easy to use to create refined lines.
A lot of people complain about liquid lipsticks being too dry. To avoid this try to make sure your lips are baby smooth by exfoliating them and then apply lip balm or primer. Doing helps avoid clumping or feathering of the matte liquid lipstick. It also helps when you’re taking off the lipstick later since the formula doesn’t go directly on the lips. Speaking of later, this formula seriously lasts 4-6 hours for me even through eating and chugging beers… and of course a lot of talking.
I 150% recommend the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks. Just remember to exfoliate, moisturize, and layer before it dries!
