Long-Lasting Liquid Lipsticks are really, really huge at the moment, Every brand and their mom is vying to create the most pigmented, lightest, and longest wearing liquid lipsticks around. I’ve been trying to review some of the newest ones such as Too Faced Melted Matte Liquefied Long Wear Matte Lipstick as it is one of the formula’s that I was asked after the most since posting about it’s launch earlier this month.
Are Long-lasting Liquid Lipsticks a hit for you?
Or a miss?
I actually don’t like them. There has to be a ton of irony here considering I am reviewing them so much lately. The reason I don’t like them is many of these formulas are drying and I already have drier lips! But that’s actually not the only thing that bugs me about these formulas as really there are some that aren’t drying.
For me, I just don’t like having something on my lips for 12 or 14 hours straight. I know, I’m odd or weird maybe but I just don’t like wearing something that I can’t remove anytime during the day. Many of these formulas are budge-proof. I mean you can set a fire off in front of your face and your lipstick would survive it. That are meant to last through long meetings, gab fests with your friends at Brunch, smooching your boy (or girl!), eating, drinking, etc…etc….And that’s awesome for some people as there are makeup lovers out there that just don’t want to bothered with reapplication.
Personally, I’m not that makeup addict.
I like to have the option to switch up my color if I want or maybe replace my lipstick with gloss after it wears away or maybe not even bother replacing it at all. I also feel like my lips look freshest when I can reapply versus wearing the same formula for 10 or more hours.
I’m just not a Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick kinda girl so these are a miss for me.
How about you?
Hit or miss?
