Last week I was reorganizing my makeup, something I often do as my vanity gets ultra messy. I realised I had a clear favourite kind of lip product. I love lipstick in general and do hoard them, so I have every finish and type of lip product you can imagine but having my whole collection in front of me made me see a clear favourite, that I’d never really noticed before.
I’ve now come to realise my favourite lip formula that sounds pretty contradictory is a creamy yet matte liquid lipstick, ideally drying down to a velvet finish and staying put for a good few hours. I’m not asking much, am I?
It’s not often liquid lipsticks fit this bill, they tend to be on the drier side or look too matte, but below are 2 liquid lipstick ranges that are just spot on if you ask me!
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick
The NYX Suede range is so pigmented and soft looking on the lips and they are beyond lightweight…and I just can’t get enough of them! The initially oil feeling formula glides over the lips, quickly drying down to a comfortable matte finish that lasts well on the lips.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour
One of my creamier feeling matte liquid lipsticks that does take some time to dry down and become matte but is totally worth the wait! Ultra long lasting and pigmented these are an underrated product. Available in quite a number of shades, that are universally flattering!
What do you look for in a lip product? What formula do you prefer?
