The battle of the liquid lipsticks

Hii my beauties !!

Liquid lipsticks are being raved so much right now! Every brand is launching liquid lipsticks right now, in many shades and all of them have a different composition. And knowing which one is the best is getting harder and harder.

LIQUID LIPSTICK is a lip product that contains the
substances of a lipstick but it goes on like a
gloss, hence the name liquid lipstick.
And since it’s made to last
long, it is drying.

I got my hand on a few of them different brands and today I will do a comparison review with my 4 different brands of liquid lipsticks.

I will be comparing NYX, Jeffree Star, LA Splash Lip Couture Waterproof and MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor. All of them are liquid lipsticks but they feel very different on the lips. So let’s get to it.

I made a chart with the characteristics of each brand, so you know how the liquid lipstick behaves.

Characteristics NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Jeffree Star Velour  LA Splash Lip Couture Waterproof MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor
Lasts at least 5hrs x x x x
Matte Finish x x x
Moisturizing x
Drying x after 5 hrs x
Sheer Cover x x
Transfer x x
Needs primer for a smooth application x x

But overall the most drying of them all is the LA Splash Lip Couture Waterproof but it lasts the longest, mostly because it is waterproof.

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks doesn’t transfer at all and it sits, on the lips, quite comfortably.




MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor transfers but is not drying at all, which makes it last the shortest of them all.

And NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream one is very sheer, you definitely have to build it up, but it lasts quite long.

Each formulation responds to each need ! If you want something that is moisturizing and lasts 4-5 hrs long, you should definitely go for the MAC one. But you look for something that will last you throw-out an event I would definitely recommend a Jeffree Star one or the LA Splash one, LA Splash lasts even more because it’s waterproof.

So this is my mini comparison/review on these liquid lipsticks. I hope it was helpful to you guys!!

Have a great Wednesday everyone 😀 !!!
