Lip trends for the past year have revolved solely around matte liquid lipsticks. Liquid lipsticks have been on the market for quite some time. I remember years ago getting a sephora deluxe sample of a Stila liquid lipstick. With Lolita and pretty much every Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick trending all over the internet, the long-last formula skyrocketed in popularity. Lucky for makeup addicts, a rise in popularity means a rise in selection. Every brand on the market has to keep up with the trends and start making their own versions. For any beauty ballin’ on a budget, the drugstore has come out with tons of exciting new options that have a much cooler price tag then ABH $20 lipsticks.
To start my journey into drugstore lips, I put the NYX liquid suede to the test. There are 12 shades in the range (I have every color but vamp & soft-spoken ). The line has everything from your understated nude, to your vampy burgundy, to your the biggest statement colors.
The prices range from:
$7.00 on nyxcosmetics.com
$6.99 on ulta.com
$6.99 on target.com
$6.99 on cvs.com
I tested out the color Cherry Skies for a full day of classes. I applied it at 9am without a lipliner because the best liquid lip should stay in place without help. It applied smooth and dried within 10 mins which is a major key because I rub my lips together all the time and usually end up smearing the inner portion of my lip color until it is gone. After classes were over and I got home at 12:30pm, I checked my lipstick and it was perfectly matte and had not budged a millimeter since I applied it over 3 hours before! It also hadn’t made my lips feel dry yet which was an accomplishment in itself because it was the middle of a Colorado winter that steals every drop of moisture from your body.
Impressed, I headed off to lunch with my roommate where we ate some very greasy dining hall pizza and still the lipstick stayed in place! I then proceeded to take an approximately 5 hour nap 😁 where i rolled around all over my white bedding and woke up to perfectly clean sheets (i am as shocked as you are, I expected a blood bath). Again I ate some very greasy dining hall pizza (yes,again) and was back in my dorm around 6:45, by this point the lipstick had dried my lips out a little and smeared from the grease. I finally took it of but it lasted over NINE hours looking nearly perfect. So i give this liquid lippie a big 👍🏻
