Updated: Liquid Lipstick Swatch Fest

Hello Beauties,

As you all know I’m a big fan of liquid lipsticks! I’m willing to pretty much try any liquid lipstick in the hope that they’ll be long wearing without being drying and have an awesome colour selection! Not to much to ask for, right? I did a liquid lipstick swatch fest a while back, click here to check it out. In the mean time I’ve added a lot more to my collection so here’s some swatches and mini reviews of each x

Lime Crime Velvetines

The original makers in liquid lipsticks and a personal favourite of mine a part from the controversy…. The lipstick formula is thin, easy to apply, great pigmentation and lasting power. I love this new shade Riot and think it would be suitable for all skin tones.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipticks*

New to the drugstore market, these matte lipsticks aren’t your traditional drying matte lipsticks. The texture reminds me of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, quite creamy and moisturising. They don’t dry completely matte and don’t have the best lasting power but are nice if you’re after something a bit more moisturising on the lips.

Dupe Alert: Lipstick Edition

Hi Beauties,

Have you ever been in the position where you buy a lipstick then go home and realise you own a shade that’s practically the same colour? Or have you been in the situation where you really want a lipstick but you can’t get it in Australia or its too expensive? Well today I hope I can solve all your problems by sharing some dupes I’ve found along the way. Not all are exact matches or cheaper but will still help you get a similar colour or finish.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte $47 vs. Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 $12.95

The Rimmel lipstick is more matte, however still creamy.

MAC Lipstick in Rebel $36 vs. Milani Colour Statement Lipstick in 21 Sangria $13

MAC Rebel is one of my all time favourite lipsticks so its no surprise that when I saw the Milani lipstick I picked it up too! The Milani lipstick is a lot more drier to apply however the colour and finish are almost identical.

Review: Liquid Lipstick Swatch Fest

Hello beauties,

I think its fair to say the liquid lipstick craze has fully taken off! Personally I’ve found it quite overwhelming as there’s so many choices and various price points. To help you out I wanted to share my liquid lipstick collection with you all. I’ll provide a quick review and a lipstick swatch of all the colours I have (be warned there’s quite a lot).

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream $12.95

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams were my first foray into the liquid lipstick field and what a great place to start! Such a great colour selection, awesome quality and better yet they’re a bargain! They last quite well on the lips but are very drying (nothing a little lip balm can’t fix).
