I love a liquid lipstick. For me they are so much easier to apply and more often than not they dry down to a matte finish meaning I don’t have to worry about smudging and re-application. One of my favourite shades of lipstick is berry. My makeup drawers are starting to overflow at this point with the number of berry liquid lip products that I own in a variety of shades! So today I thought I’d talk about some of my most reached for and why I love them!
The Best Cool Berry Liquid Lip Picks
Tarte – Tarteist Quick Dry Lip Paint In Shade Fly
This liquid lip product is a full coverage cream with a light texture. The finish is not drying. The longwearing formula is very easy to apply and is highly concentrated. The wand makes for easy and neat application, it doesn’t take a lot of the product to go a very long way. It dries straight away and there is no transferring – pretty comfortable to wear if you ask me!
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Liquid Lipstick in Shade Sugar Plum
This shade contains iridescent pigments. Its a full coverage matte liquid lipstick – It really was the unique pigment that drew me to this shade. I was impressed with the coverage and it applied evenly for me. I wore it out one evening we went to dinner on our Honeymoon. The shade did have to stand the test of eating and drinking throughout the night and it didn’t perform too badly given the circumstances, although by the time I got back that evening there wasn’t a huge amount of it left, I also noticed It was slightly drying. I think without the constant eating and drinking it would have lasted for hours.
Kat Von D – Everlasting Liquid Lipstick In Shade Miss Argentina
The Kat Von D liquid lipstick formula is infused with vitamins A, C and E for hydration purposes. The shade Miss Argentina is a beautiful cool berry tone. The coverage is good and like the other options in this list dried down to a matte finish. It has great wear time. The wand on the applicator is really long so I found it a bit more difficult to be precise when applying, but overall a beautiful shade. Despite the added vitamins I still found it to be a tad drying, but with a matte lipstick I don’t think you’re ever going to find one that’s perfectly hydrating!
