My Everyday Liquid Lipsticks - Dusty Rose, Mauves & Nudes!

August 8, 2017

Liquid Lipstick!! Probably everyone’s favourite topic at the moment and I am no exception. I have to admit I’ve been ignoring my regular lipsticks ever since this trend came around. I still have them but they don’t get as much love anymore. I’ve been pretty much wearing these every day because of how easy they are and quite low maintenance once on. It can also make it through coffee, snacks, small meals but do give away with something super greasy like a Pizza but for the most part they stay on and they come in every colour imaginable.

So let’s talk about my favourite nudes, pinky nudes, dusty rose, mauve- that family of colours is what I wear everyday but rotate different shades so they look quite consistent with whatever look I go for. I know sometimes these colours can look very similar in the bottle but I can assure you that each of these colours are different and definitely look even more different on the lips so I’ve definitely not been just collecting the same shade from different brands.

#1 Colourpop Ultra Matte in Chi  –This one’s from the Karrueche’s range which had three liquid lipsticks – Chi, Kae and Rooch and this is the lightest shade from them. 'Chi' is a very grey-nude or ‘Greige’ which is very popular at the moment. A cool toned shade and definitely something that took me a little time getting used to. I hated it in the beginning but it grew on me eventually.  This comes in the Ultra Matte Formula and if I feel like it’s looking too grey/ dead looking, I layer a little moisturizing lipstick on top to warm up the colour as well as keep my lips from feeling super dry. It definitely looks much better on my warm skintone when I mix it in with another shade and I am loving it ever since. Staying power is decent but disappears after a meal and since it’s a fairly light shade doesn’t get messy.

#2  Limecrime Velvetines in Pumpkin – These liquid lipstick are super pigmented and opaque. They are totally transfer proof and dry down true to the shade in the tube. They do last through meals too and won’t come off easily either even after 12 hour days. I have to seriously scrub it off with an oil cleanser. This stuff once on is going to last you all day. They come in tons of shades but this one in particular is such a unique nude – a warm, brown, with hints of burnt orange. It’s a great fall colour but also good as an everyday shade for warmer skintones. It is definitely something I’ve never owned before, not even in lipstick form. Also, the packaging is super cute with the roses on the cap and an opaque glass bottle. This is a heavy duty lipstick so it can be a little drying sometimes but the staying power is the best out of all. Major love for this one!

Net Wt: 2.6ml for $20 (but you can get them at much lower prices during sales)

#3  NYX Liquid Suede in Sandstorm, Soft Spoken –
This is one of my favourite liquid lipstick ranges and has been ever since it came out. I can’t do without these two shades in my collection and will quite possibly repurchase if I ever run out of them but it’s quite impossible to be honest.
Sandstorm looks extremely similar to the colourpop one but it’s actually true to the colour in the tube while the colourpop turns a little darker as it dries so they’re totally different colours on application. It does have the similar greige look but slightly lighter and looks wonderful with darker eye looks or smokey eyes.
Soft Spoken is one of my go-to everyday shades. It is a beautiful dusty rose that suits pretty much everyone. I can see it goes with a lot of complexions and the one that I reach for the most in my collection. These NYX liquid lipsticks have a velvety texture and are actually very comfortable on the lips and don’t dry them out and also disappear without a sign.

#4 Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit in Rebel Rose –
A new addition to my collection because this range from Wet n Wild has taken the beauty world by a storm for being incredibly affordable but comparable to high end brands in quality and staying power. Rebel Rose is a deep, mauvey colour is so so beautiful on the lips and gives a completely matte look that dries down under a minute. I love how it feels on the lips, very comfortable. It isn’t as easy to wear like the nyx ones because you will definitely feel like you have something on your lips but if you wear these long enough, you end up getting used to the feeling. I love the end result and the staying power. Love that the packaging is tiny but you still get the same amount of product as the other ones.

#5 Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss Matte in Soft Nude –
Essence has since re-packaged and come out with a completely new range of liquid lipsticks but I’m still using this Soft Nude one because there’s a lot of it left. To be honest, I don’t wear it on it’s own because it has a mousse texture that doesn’t dry down. It’s not a true liquid lipstick in that sense but more like NYX Soft lip creams in texture. However, it's fantastic for layering over other liquid lipsticks and this shade is so beautiful with a hint of warm pink in it. I love wearing it over the Colourpop Chi and NYX Sandstorm to warm them up slightly. This range is also incredibly moisturizing and feels like a lip balm on my lips so definitely helps in making extremely dry liquid lipsticks like the 'Ultra Matte' more wearable.

Net wt: 4.5ml for $2.50

#6 MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Laquer in Dash  –
Lastly, this lip laquer from MUA is an old favourite and I’ve featured it in posts before but it’s the ultimate dark lip for me when it comes to a day look. It’s a deep, berry mauve and a nice option if you’re not willing to go full on bright red in the daytime. Also, it smells like grape candy. At least that’s what the smell reminds me of and I do quite enjoy it. It does crack after meals and needs some touchups, reapplication which is why I don’t wear it too often but still it’s too beautiful to let go of. It looks fantastic if you're just out for coffee or small snacks but won't last through a meal.
