There is something about liquid lipsticks that really floats my boat, especially during wintertime. It might be the thicker formula, which weirdly enough I love. It might be the rich color pay-off that gives you full-blown color in one swipe. Or it might be the all-day longevity and the fact that you don’t need to stop in the middle of the street on the coldest day for awkward checkups and reapplication. I don’t really know but one thing is for sure – the liquid lipsticks / lip creams rock and sporting them during the colder months has become a regular thing. I have four fab shades here, all with different formulas and textures and I am obsessed.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nude-ist (here)
This is the very product that is currently living in my makeup bag. And I adore everything about it. The stunning complexion-warming reddish nude owns my heart and it looks especially gorgeous during A/W, paired with a nice jumper and jeans for a casual pop of color. It really reminds me of something that Kylie Jenner would wear, so take notes ladies! The formula is incredible and if you are familiar with the Rouge Edition Velvet range you know what I am talking about - beautiful matte finish, opaque in just two thin coats and non-drying formula that stays on for ages. Can I find a fault? Not really.
NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Bonfire (here)
For a bit brighter and more pinky option, this NYX beauty has been a firm favorite for the past few months. Bonfire is a gorgeous mid-toned red pink, which peps up any skin tone and adds a hint of warmth into my complexion, which is much needed for the colder days. It is bright, yet not in your face and I love that you can sport it for any occasion. The Xtreme Lip Creams have lovely formula, which feels really hydrating and soft on the lips, offer extreme pigmentation and don’t budge for hours. I’d suggest you give your lips a nice exfoliation prior to applying Bonfire though as it tends to cling into imperfection and dry patches a little. Do that and this will help the lip cream glide on evenly for the perfect juicy pout. Full review here.
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Apocaliptic (here)
An oldie but a total goodie but this gem will always have a place in my heart (and stash). Apocaliptic is the boldest of the bunch and I love its semi matte finish and the bright fuchsia shade. It perks up my complexion and I love how vivid, vibrant and flattering it is. Apocaliptic feels comfortable on the lips, giving a nice touch or moisture and the applicator help to distribute the color evenly. The longevity is great considering that the lacquer practically melts into the lips. Oh, and it fades evenly, so that’ gets big thumbs up from me as well!
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always Red (here)
Say hello to the crème de la crème of the liquid lipsticks! It has everything on my checklist sorted and it leaves me smitten each time I rock it. This Sephora beauty has front row in my lipstick collection, especially during the Christmas party season. It’s the perfect Christmassy red – not too bright not too deep. It’s right in the middle and it’s a classic shade that suits all skin tones beautifully and makes me feel extra feminine. It is intensely pigmented, feels lightweight, and dries completely matte. Love. Once it sets it doesn’t move until you say so. It never peels, cracks or fades awkwardly. It’s a keeper and definitely one to check out. Review here.
