Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve probably heard all the hype about Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick. In fact, this post is pretty late to the game as Kylie is well on her way to releasing her new Velvet line of liquid lipsticks. The colors featured above are Dolce K, True Brown K, and Candy K.
While the formula can be a little drying, I’ve found that applying a little lipbalm over them saves me. Out of the three colors, Dolce K definitely gets the most use and is the color most similar to the shade of lip that made Kylie Jenner’s lip fillers as famous as they are today. While I’m not sure I can say the same about the celeb herself, I’m really impressed with these matte liquid lipsticks.
As you can probably tell, I don’t really branch out when it comes to lip products. I’m addicted to this sort of half nude/half pink, Instagram-baddie shade of liquid lipstick. While this color obsession clearly isn’t healthy, it has allowed me to pick out the formulas that work the best for me.
The liquid lipsticks above are listed in order as follows: Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow, NYX Lingerie in Teddy (LIPLI 10), Tarteist Lip Paint in tbt, NYX Liquid Suede in Soft-Spoken (LSCL 04), Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in Double Tap, Kylie Matte Liquid Lipstick in Dolce K, and Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in Nude Vinyl.
The lip product that probably gets the most use is NYX Liquid Suede in Soft-Spoken. This one gets the most love mainly because it’s the most comfortable on my lips. The creamy texture doesn’t dry out my lips like some of the other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried and the color stays on for an extended period of time (especially because the color doesn’t flake off with my lips). A close-runner up is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow. The formula is extremely long-lasting and for some reason, this shade looks different but fantastic on a number of my friends. The small brush also allows for a lot of control so you don’t even need a lip liner with this product.
As for some of the other products, I have to admit that I was pretty disappointed with the NYX Lingerie in Teddy. NYX usually comes through with quality that greatly surpasses it’s affordability. But with this one, I felt like it was patchy and needed lots of layers in order to get a solid color on my lips. I’ve had other friends who have tried this product in different shades and their reactions were much more positive so it could just be this particular shade. The Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss is definitely the stickiest out of the bunch, which could be because it’s a gloss, but I don’t like feeling like my hair is going to stick to my lips all day so this one was also kind of a disappointment for me.
