My Favourite Liquid Lipsticks

There are soo many liquid lipsticks on the market these days, as they have landed in the beauty industry with a well and truly big boom. I am a huge fan, and am always wanting to try new ones out whenever they are released. I do own quite a few so I thought I would do a little run down of my current favourites.

First up the latest addition to my liquid lipstick collection is from Kat Von D in the shade Lovesick. I have fallen head over heels for this, and is a stand out favourite. It is a rose toned nude which suits my skintone beautifully. The formula of these are one the best out there, but they are also the most expensive. They have a soft texture and apply super easy. Some people have commented that they are not fond of the long wand, but I actually really like that as I find it makes it easier to be precise. I wore this at a night time and I found it lasted really well, and the texture is the most comfortable and lightweight of them all. A firm favourite and I must pick up more next time I stumble upon a Sephora.

There was sooo much hype around the release of the Kylie Cosmetics lip kits (post). I really wanted one and one night whilst scrolling Twitter, I saw that they were doing their first ever restock so jumped on the site and managed to get one. I picked the shade Posie K which is a little darker than Lovesick, and has darker purple tones running through it. I do really like this and I like that it comes with a matching lip liner. These are a tad drying on the lips but they are the mattest of the bunch. They dry matte and stay matte, so they do what they say they are going to. These are so hard to get hold off, but I think $29 is a good price. However, with the shipping and custom fees which adds up to nearly the same amount as the product I won't be in a rush to reorder.

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are more of a mousse like texture, which I like as they are comfortable to wear and are not too drying, but these are not a true matte. Prague is a lovely rosy pink shade which is a great spring colour and I think I am going to get a lot of wear out of. Istanbul is a cool pink toned nude and I am a huge fan of this. It is a great everyday shade and one which I keep in my handbag as it is a shade which will suit all makeup looks day or night. These are great value for just £5.50 and are so much easier to get hold of now they are sold on Boots online and also within many Boots stores.

Discovering the brand ColourPop has not been good for my bank account, but thankfully the prices of their products are very affordable (post). A lot of american bloggers are a huge fan of their liquid lipsticks, and I love their Ultra Satin range. I have three shades, all of which are great quality and different to any other liquid lipstick within my collection. Panda is a deep pink violet and a colour which I would never usually choose as it is much too daring for me to wear. I took the plunge and ordered it and I have been totally loving it. Lyin' King is another bold shade and one which I have been loving just as equally. I own lots of nude toned liquid lipsticks and its great to have a brighter pink shade to wear. Echo Park is the nudest lipstick of any kind which I own, and I previously always stayed away as I thought they would wash me out, but in fact this looks really lovely. It is slightly darker than a true nude so it still stands out slightly, this has become a favourite of mine and is also one which I reach for on a daily basis. I adore the formula of these as they are a satin finish. This means that they have a slight sheen and are more moisturising than any of the others. They are definitely not glossy but they have a satin finish which means they look more glossy on the lips than any other liquid lipstick.

I have just picked up two of the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks and I cannot wait to try them out! What are your favourite liquid lipstick?
