5 Liquid Lipsticks You Need To Add To Your Beauty Stash
As an oily-skinned girl, I steer clear of creamy formulas when it comes to lipsticks. However, oily skin or not, the one thing that puts me off about any makeup product is if I have to constantly check myself in the mirror to make sure that the product stays where it belongs. Even though I love makeup, I can’t be thinking about it all the time that I have it on. This is perhaps why I have taken to liquid lipsticks like a fish takes to water! Liquid lipsticks are the ultimate in fuss-free makeup. Once you get the hang of it (master how to apply liquid lipstick), there’s no turning back. This is why I’ve put together my favourite liquid lipsticks. Shop them NOW!
The best part about the Kiss Proof Lip Stains (besides the fact that they are matte) is that they are wonderfully light on the lips. The long-lasting formula, along with the unique applicator and amazing pigmentation, makes this range a must-have. While Haute Latte, a gorgeous everyday brown, is their fastest selling shade, I’d suggest picking Rustic, which is a beautiful muted orange that you can easily wear to work or a party without feeling OTT. The shade is a treat for folks who love orange lipsticks that are not on the neon side.
The 2000 Kisses range has a host of shades that will have you tearing out your hair in despair. So many lovely colours, so little money. Gawd! Why you so unfair? The shade Red Rose, contrary to its name, is a deep brown shade which has red undertones (I’ve worn it here). The formula of the lipstick is an intense matte that I absolutely love. The pigmentation is insane and the colour lasts for over 8 hours, which is nothing short of a miracle if you have oily skin and live in a place that’s perennially humid.
This lightweight lipstick dries to a complete matte that does not budge for over 8 hours. The liquid lipstick takes a little while to settle down to a matte finish that is waterproof and smudge-proof. The shade 461 is a lovely peachy-coral with cool undertones. While one swipe of the lipstick is appropriate for a day at work, two swipes will make you party-ready!
The Soft Matte Lip Creams from NYX are testimony to the fact that when a product is almost always sold-out, it says a lot about the product. The Lip Creams go on smoothly and settle down to a satin matte finish. The shade Copenhagen is a deep burgundy colour that is beyond beautiful. The colour stays put for hours without budging, fading, creasing and feathering.
5. M.A.C. Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick – Feels So Grand (Rs 1,850)
While makeup giant M.A.C. was a little late to the liquid lipstick party, they did come out with some smashing shades. Feel So Grand is an exquisite deep tomato red colour that will look flattering on every Indian skin tone. The lipstick is pigmented, dries down to a complete matte and stays where it’s meant to be for hours on end.
