Best of 2015: Liquid Lipsticks
Liquid lipsticks we’re a huge hit in 2015. Huge. Brands who didn’t have them (ColourPop, Tarte, etc) were quick to adopt them. While other brands (like Kat Von D and NYX) beefed up their existing lineups to cover every base possible. I guess it’s fair to say 2015 was the “Year of Liquid Lipstick”. And you know I sampled a great deal of them!
I actually happened to find myself a bit addicted to liquid lipsticks last year. They seemed to come in the most unique colors and oh so many different formulas. From creams to Ultra Mattes, liquid lipsticks are rather long lasting making them great for long days at work or a fun night on the town. There were a lot of great liquid lipsticks released in 2015 but these beauties were my favorites:
Kat Von D Bauhau5 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick You know pink is my thing so it comes as no surprise that Bauhau5 would be a fave of mine. It’s a deep raspberry fuchsia with a flat matte finish that definitely makes a statement. I loved wearing it in the summer and fall for an edgy pink pout that lasts all day.
ColourPop Limbo Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Brown lips quickly became my thing in 2015 and Limbo was one of my go-to’s for that 90s brown lip I so craved. Limbo is a warm chocolate brown that’s edgy yet incredibly flattering, I was afraid brown lips would just blend into my skin tone but Limbo really showed me the way. I’m sure I’ll still be wearing this baby in 2016.
Milani Crush Amore Matte Lip Creme Crush was another brown lipstick that I just couldn’t put down last year. It’s another chocolate brown but it has a red undertone that makes it super wearable and unique. I reached for Crush a lot in 2015 because it was very easy to wear and incredibly flattering.
NYX Vintage Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick If I had to choose my favorite liquid lipstick of 2015 it would have to be Vintage. I was a little disappointed that it didn’t turn out to be vampy like the tube but it actually turned out to be a “my lips but better” kinda shade for me. Vintage is a mauve-y brown that’s surprisingly very natural looking. Vintage was my favorite everyday lipstick in 2015.
Kat Von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick The only color I love as much as pink is purple and L.U.V. was the perfect bright purple fix in 2015. All spring and summer, LU.V. was a staple in my makeup bag because it has such fun, flirty vibes. It’s a bright violet that really pops on my complexion and makes me feel and warm and purple inside. I just couldn’t get enough of it.
Sephora 15 Polished Purple Cream Lip Stain When I was in the mood for something a little vampier, Polished Purple was a wonderful trade off. It’s a blackened eggplant loaded with glitter for a sick matte metallic finish that’s unexplainably beautiful. Polished Purple carried me through fall with its unique vampy goodness and super long wearing formula.
Milani Embrace Amore Matte Lip Creme Berry pinks are like my go to for fall and winter so I clung to Embrace for dear life after Milani released the Amore Lip Creams. Embrace is a berry plum that’s like the fall/winter version of Bauhau5. I fell in love with the color and formula after testing Embrace and it soon became one my go to berry lips for fall.
