The Liquid Lipsticks Perfect For Summer

There was a time when the premise of a liquid lipstick sent a shiver of fear into the hearts of even the most enthusiastic beauty fiend; pre-2017 they were a dry, mess of pigment that would be?impossible to get off but no longer. Liquid lipsticks have evolved, and when one landed on my desk this week, I was reminded how good they are – and how they don’t budge in this wet-yet-humid weather ?So, what’s all the fuss about? They slick on like a lipgloss, dry like a lipstick and stay on like a lip stain (minus the bad dry, flaky side effects). And thanks to their handy applicator, they can be applied sans lip liner. I’m a big fan; they glide on and can be applied fairly seamlessly on public transport – the ultimate idiot-proof test – and?will be looking to grow my collection over the coming weeks.

Scroll down for five current favourites:

Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick, €21

When it comes to applying liquid mattes, precision is key. This lipstick’s trowel-shaped applicator makes colouring inside?your lip lines a breeze. The high pigment also means any colour really pops when applied.

Revlon Ultra HD Liquid Lipstick, €11.49

This Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour is plush, hydrating, and once applied, literally does not budge.

NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick, €9.25

This is one for all lovers of a nude lip. From mauves?to beiges; if you can name a neutral nude, they have it.

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, €28

In terms of the higher end options, MAC’s colour range is bold, bright and beautiful and lips stay saturated throughout the day.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick, €12.99

10172256

What’s great about this one is the buildability of the formula – ?apply using your fingertips for a softer look or use the applicator and build up the coverage for an intense statement pout. Lips feel velvet smooth when it’s applied which is another nice plus.
