In a Liquid Lip Craze I Caved..
And got two of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks. I’ve read some pretty iffy reviews but having to walk past the Anastasia Beverly Hills booth everyday seemed to outweigh that. Isn’t it crazy how life works?
I kept finding myself coming over more and more to check out for the liquid lipsticks. More specifically Sad Girl and Potion. I wanted them the very moment I saw the pictures on Instagram. The colors are bold and totally up my alley!
My first pick was, Sad Girl, a rich plum with a metallic finish. I have a few plums in my stash but nothing quite like Sad Girl. It’s loaded with fine shimmer that gives matte lips a really unique metallic finish that’s stunning. I learned that after falling in love with Sephora’s Polished Purple Cream Lip Stain so I decided to go ahead and grab this baby so I can try it for myself.
Then you know I had to have Potion, of course. I love all things purple! Potion is a deep eggplant that’s one sexy, vampy beast. It reminds me a bit of MAC Punk Couture but if the formula holds up I may end up liking Potion a little more. I really love the way dark, bold colors look in an ultra matte finish.
At the moment, I’m wearing Sad Girl and things seem to be pretty good. The formula is easy to apply and feels pretty comfortable so far. I have to note that I hate the smell though. It’s like a paint/plastic mix that’s unsettling. I don’t smell it once it’s on the lips but I got a nice whiff of it when I opened the tube and made a little stink face. The smell isn’t really bad. Just off putting for a $20 lipstick. Here’s to hoping these lipsticks wear better than they smell!
Have you tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks?
