Liquid Lipstick reviews

Hello everyone, welcome to my very first blog post!

As you know, I've been testing out some liquid lipsticks these last few weeks and have reviewed them based on a few key qualities. My goal behind these reviews were to look at the claims that each company has made on their website and compare that to my own experience and observation and test each product for 4 things:

1) Opacity-whether it is high pigment or more sheer

2)Longevity-Roughly how long I found the products lasted

3)Texture -how it felt going on vs throughout the day

 4)Transfer proof-If it transferred or smudged throughout the day

Sephora Matte sponge Liquid Lipstick Magenta

Company Claims: This product is claimed to give high impact pigment, full coverage with an easy and comfortable application.   1) Opacity-high opacity, very bright and pigmented.  2)Longevity-6-8hours, would need re-application if you want to continue wearing it into the evening.  3)Texture-Smooth going on, comfy. Felt a bit drying, would definitely need lips to be well moisturized beforehand.  4)Transfer proof-No, however they do not claim this on their website.  Final Score: 8/10  Additional Comments: As it is such a bold colour, and with the sponge applicator, there was not a crisp defined line between my lips and my skin. I would suggest using a lip liner beforehand to create more of an impact.      Anastasia Beverly Hills  Milkshake

Anastasia Beverly Hills Milkshake

Company Claims: High Intensity, long wear matte cream lipstick made for the woman on the go!  1) Opacity- Very opaque, one application. Brighter in person then on camera so while it isn't a deep colour it is still bold!  2)Longevity-Lasted throughout the day. Overall good staying power however as it dried fully it started to separate into the creases of my lips and the overall appearance was leaving much to be desired. That being said, it stayed on pretty good after eating!  3)Texture-Went on Smooth, easy to apply. Throughout the day however it did feel quite tacky   4)Transfer proof- Yes!  Final Score: 6.5/10  Additional Comments: Anastasia Beverly Hills has many wonderful products and bonus-they are cruelty free!
