When it comes to a statement-making pout, liquid lipstick is the way to go.
But while conventional formulas can dry out lips or draw attention to chaps or bumps, the latest crop of liquid lipsticks to hit cosmetics counters offer up long-lasting wear AND a velvety finish.
Read on for a round-up of great new products that will give you a pout fresher than Kylie Jenner's in mere moments.
Huda Beauty's Liquid Matte Lipstick
First launched six years ago, Huda Kattan has just dropped a fully updated and vegan-friendly line of liquid lipsticks. Available in 16 shades, including the red-orange Slaytina and universally flattering pink-nude Bombshell, the formula is infused with lycopene, olive oil, vitamins A and E, and essential fatty acids to help keep lips supple throughout the day. Perfect!
IL MAKIAGE's Infinity Long-Wear Matte Lip Cream
With vibrant, high-impact pigments, IL MAKIAGE's liquid lipsticks are a make-up kit must-have. Top choices include Matte Trouble, a rich berry red, and Matte Karma, an on-trend pink-brown shade.
Ciaté London's Liquid Velvet Nudes Matte Liquid Lipstick
For great everyday lipstick shades, look no further than Ciaté London's line. From Gossip, a lavender taupe, to Obsession, a dark chocolate brown, there is a shade suitable for every skin tone. Plus, the innovative brush with precision tip helps to effortlessly line and fill in the pout for perfect, smudge-free application every time.
Honest Beauty's Liquid Lipstick
Made with a blend of conditioning avocado oil and plumping hyaluronic acid to counteract dryness, Honest Beauty's Liquid Lipstick range is a real winner. The collection is comprised of eight shades, including blue-based red Flawless and peach-pink hue Off Duty, all of which deliver seriously smoochably smooth lips. If it's good enough for Jessica Alba, then it is good enough for us!
