The Liquid Lipstick Low Down

Liquid lipsticks have been hard to come by in the UK up until recently, but this year many brands have been coming out with their own versions and I have fully jumped on the bandwagon. After trying several different formulations and finishes of liquid lipsticks, I have put together a list of a handful of brands that I would recommend trying out. 

N Y X | I thought I would start off with my favourite formula and finish of liquid lipstick - The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They're comfortable to wear and with an array of colours to choose from, you really are spoiled for choice. At £5.50 each they're affordable meaning you can stock up without feeling too guilty. Their matte, fool proof formula dries opaque and is easy to apply on the go. Milan, a mid tone pink hue that compliments and flatters my skin tone is the shade I would recommend the most, but Cannes and Copenhagen are next on the list too. 

S T I L A | I have started to hoard a lot of the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks lately after I found out they were available in M&S. Amore, a plum shade that has golden shimmer running through was the first shade that I bought from the range and I was smitten. Although I wouldn't necessarily opt for a lip product with glitter in, I find that this makes my lips appear fuller and makes the dark hue easier to wear. However, if there's one shade that I need to own then it's Patina. I know I don't need any more pink nude lip products in my collection, but I had to make an exception with this one as the creamy, moisturising formula feels so weightless on the lips.  

H & M | The H&M Velvet Lip Creams are the reason why my liquid lipstick obsession has got a bit out of hand. They are available in a range of vivid, dramatic colours that have a high coverage formula which lasts several hours on the lips. Dare Me, a deep plum similar to that of Stila's Amore and Le Beau Monde, an intense red which has been compared to Sephora's Always Red are two shades that I have in my collection. Although they do start to flake if worn for too long, they're an amazing affordable liquid lipstick that I'm sure I will collect more of. 

T H E  B A L M | If you're looking for a long lasting liquid lipstick that has a creamy texture and non-drying formula then theBalm is your best bet. Before NYX was readily available in the UK, the Meet Matt(e) Hughes offerings were my port of call. Commited, a pink nude hue works well for daily wear, creates an wash of colour that doesn't budge and it feels more comfortable to wear than traditional lipsticks. 

What liquid lipsticks do you recommend?
