I seem to have a slight obsession with liquid lipsticks at the moment, so I thought I would share with you my top 5! .....granted, they do all look really similar but trust me, once swatched they are pretty different. If you know me, you'll know I'm all for these kind of matte nude shades.
I find that liquid lipsticks are more available in the U.S, but they seem to be slowly coming over here in the U.K, with the likes of DOSE and Jeffree star now available on U.K sites....just waiting on you Colour Pop and Anastasia ...AHEM!
These 5 shades I picked are the shades I turn to on a regular basis. DOSE - Truffle, DOSE - Stone, Jeffree Star - Celebrity Skin, Kylie Jenner Lip Kit - Candy K and Kylie Jenner Lip Kit - Dolce K.
DOSE - Truffle is a warm, brown, pinky nude.
DOSE - Stone is a pink toned nude.
Jeffree Star - Celebrity Skin is a light brown nude.
Kylie Jenner Lip Kit - Candy K is a warm, pinky toned nude.
Kylie Jenner Lip Kit - Dolce K is a medium brown nude with slight pink tones to it.

As some may know the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits are super hard to get hold of, I was rather lucky to get my hands on the second lot that got released. I do adore the shades Kylie Jenner came up with, but if I'm being honest they are probably my least favourite formula out of this selection. I just find them to be a lot more drying and you can't add any more than one layer otherwise it just flakes off. But they do last a good amount of time, the lip liners that come in the kit are amazing and the liquid lipsticks smell of cupcakes...yummy!
The DOSE ones feel lovely on the lips, very comfortable and I love the shade range! Truffle has to be my top shade as its just the most perfect nude.
Jeffree Star Celebrity Skin has my favourite formula... it's amazing and the most comfortable to wear out of the lot. It doesn't even feel drying which surprises me for a matte lipstick, it also has a slight minty smell to it. All shades last a good amount of time on the lips being matte formulas.
For cheaper alternatives I do also really like the NYX soft matte lip creams in the shade London and Abu Dhabi.
Have you tried any of these brands? What are your favourite liquid lipsticks?
Thanks for reading,
