MY FAVORITE LIPSTICKS 2018 : #NationalLipstickDay

Source


Happy National Lipstick Day! Today I'm going to be sharing an updated list of my favorite lipsticks! If you want to check out my post from last year's National Lipstick Day click here. - Enjoy!

High End

Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick // $17.00


This is has been one of my most consistently-used lipsticks since I bought it almost 2 years ago. Candy K is the perfect everyday lip shade for me. I have actually used mine so much that it's almost empty! Once it completely runs out, I will definitely be repurchasing this shade and trying new ones!

Shade Shown:

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick // $24.00


Out of every lipstick I mention on this list, this one is the most long-wearing and budge-proof. It always lasts all day, no matter the circumstances. Since it is so long-wear and matte, it can make your lips feel dry, so I would recommend moisturizing your lips thoroughly before you apply and after you remove it at the end of the day. It also has an amazing applicator that is perfect for precisely lining your lips. It is the most expensive lipstick on this list, and definitely way more money than what I typically spend on makeup, but it is worth every penny.

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick // $18.00


Jeffree Star's lip products are some of the best I have ever tried. These have a matte finish, but they don't fully dry down making it so comfortable to wear. Only one layer is needed for full color opacity. Hours later, it always looks as if I just applied it. The shade "Calabasas" is one of the most beautiful and unique shades I have ever tried - it is also the perfect color for any skin tone. I have been wearing it all the time this summer! The shade "Poinsettia" is a bright red with a metallic finish, which is hard to find. Also, look at how gorgeous the 2017 Holiday packaging is! It is perfect to wear during the Holiday season, but I personally love to wear it year-round. Both of the shades pictured above used to be limited edition, but have since been added to the permanent range with different colored packaging.

Jeffree Star Lip Ammunition // $18.00



This formula is so creamy with complete opacity with one swipe. It is such a comfortable satin formula that will last for hours after application. When using darker lip colors like this, I typically prefer to use a liquid lipstick - if you're the same way, I would suggest getting Jeffree Star's Velour Liquid Lipsticks when it comes to the darker shades. Regardless, I do really love the formula of the Lip Ammunition and would definitely purchase more shades in the future.

Drugstore

Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit // $4.99


When it comes to drugstore liquid lipsticks, this is the best. The formula is liquidy and feels thin once it's dried down on the lips. It lasts pretty much all day without reapplication. The shade pirctured above, "Give Me Mocha", is a deep berry shade with brown undertones. It's always my go-to lipstick for fall and winter!

Shade Shown:

Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick // $6.50


Colourpop has been one of my favorite brands for years and I've tried most of their lipstick formulas by now. My favorite from the brand is the Ultra Satin formula, which is so comfortable and lasts even longer than the Ultra Matte formula. The shade I have is called "Femme" which is a dusty lilac shade with grey undertones - it's unlike any other!

Shade Shown:

Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Color // $8.99


When it comes to traditional lipstick bullets, the Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Colors are the best I have ever tried from both high-end and drugstore price ranges. The formula is so comfortable and long lasting, something that isn't very common when it comes to lipsticks with matte finishes. It stays on all day, through eating and drinking, without reapplication. There is such a wide shade range for this formula, so there really is the perfect shade for everyone!

Flower Beauty HydraSilk Ultimate Lip Butter // $9.99


I don't typically wear red lipsticks that aren't matte, but this one has been perfect for a pop of color in the summertime. This Flower Beauty lipstick isn't nearly as long-wearing as the Petal Pout Lip Color I just mentioned, but it is such a comfortable and moisturizing on the lips.  It doesn't bleed outside of the lip line and can be layered with a gloss for an added shine. This has been one of my most used lip products of the summer so far!

Shade Shown: 

NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Glitter Crème // $7.49


I've tried several metallic liquid lipsticks from the drugstore and higher-end price points, but this is one of the best. The shade "Bella" is a beautiful metallic bronze, which is surprisingly a very wearable everyday shade.

This can be worn alone, but I usually prefer to layer a gloss on top of it - my go-to is the Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss in the shade "Rose Gold"

Shade Shown:

Sephora Collection #LipStories // $8.00


The #LipStories collection is definitely a hidden gem at Sephora. They are so affordable and have a great range of 40 shades, ranging from a matte white to a metallic turquoise - and everything in between. Each one has a different image on the tube, which is something I've never seen before with lipstick packaging. I've never tried the matte finish before, but the crème finish is very comfortable and has a decent amount of wear time. The metallic finish wears a little bit longer than the crème does and is also very comfortable. The shade 51 Festival Lights is unlike any other lipstick I've seen - it's a metallic bronze with gold glitter reflect to it. It's a really beautiful and unique shade, especially for autumn. Next time you're in Sephora, I highly recommend checking out these out!

Shades Shown:
03 Oui! // crème finish
51 Festival Lights // metallic finish

Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick // $5.00


This is my favorite nude lipstick in my collection! It is the perfect peachy-brown shade for my skin tone. It's actually an exact dupe (shade, packaging and formula wise) to the famous MAC Cosmetics shade "Velvet Teddy". I actually prefer this one to MAC's. I wear "Chauffer" all the time when I'm looking to wear a neutral lipstick that can go with any outfit and makeup look. 

I mentioned this lipstick in a recent post about my favorite makeup under $5, so check that here out if you're looking for more affordable makeup recommendations!
