If you haven't heard about liquid lipsticks then..well...you've been living under a rock because these are one of the biggest new make-up trends to hit the beauty industry. I've been wanting to try one for ages but felt the best ones were only found in the US (the likes of ABH, Colourpop, Cat von Dee etc...) BUT, a new brand has been suddenly popping up in Boots stores around the country....NYX.
A liquid lipstick goes on like a gloss but sets like a lipstick and promises to last all day - some do what they say, some don't!
I originally went in to get the Liquid Suede version but lots of girls were crowded around another section and I soon realised the the liquid creams were the IT products to get. At only £5.50 a go, it's totally worth trying and there are SO MANY SHADES! It's absurd I just couldn't choose! In the end I settled on three shades - Cannes, Stockholm and Cairo.
Cannes is the most pinky of the lot and is actually a real favourite of mine, it glides on really nicely and dries perfectly too creating a lovely matte lip.
Cairo is very nude and, to be honest, I'm not a fan - not because of the colour but the way it goes on, you have to do about 3 layers before it's built up a proper coverage and so I definitely won't be purchasing that again. That being said it does work really well underneath other products.
Finally, Stockholm is a slightly darker version of Cannes and boy do I love it, it's my favourite of the bunch but it is a little darker than it looks in the packaging.
Overall though, my ultimate favourite in terms of colour, texture and staying power definitely has to be the Liquid Suede. I purchased it in Sandstorm and it really is such a beautifully textured product - it's very dark for work but really works for evenings and weekends. It's slightly more expensive at £6.50 but for £1 I'd give it a go - there are fewer shades to choose from but I'm lusting after Tea and Cookies!
