Rise of the Liquid Lipstick

Strawberry Kiss // Stellar // Ole Flamingo

Oh the liquid lipstick. It started with a lone Rimmel Apocalips boom but now they're popping up all over the shop and I for one can't get enough of them! Higher pigmentation, longer wearing formulas and matt-ier (totally a thing) finishes with seriously stunning shades, they're a whole other level of lip product. So today I thought I'd do a bit of an ode to them and bring you the best of the liquid based bunch. First up we have the Sephora Matte Lip Cream in 'Strawberry Kiss'. I know these live across the pond but UK delivery does exist now, not that I'm enabling or anything... this vibrant red dries to a stunning matte finish, is super easy to apply and smells like vanilla ice cream. Important stuff. Then we have the Rimmel Apocalips which caused possibly the biggest blogger hype of all time and rightly so; they're the most purse friendly offering, come in a huge range of colours and unlike the other two picks, leave a gorgeous glossy finish on the lips. 'Stellar' also happens to be the most vibrant lip product I own and perfect for when you need a little pick me up! Last but not least we have my latest discovery, the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets. I've got a couple of these but my favourite has to be 'Ole Flamingo' which is a wonderful wearable fushia pink. I can't even tell you how long these babies last- I can apply it before breakfast and still have it on by the time I get home from work in spite of eating, drinking (and even a bit of kissing on the weekends. oo la la.) It really is the ultimate look lifting, long lasting, lazy girl lip and the pint sized packaging is pretty cute too. 

Apologies that this is my first blog post of the week but life has just got pretty darn manic, however I've got a nice chilled weekend at home to look forward to now so I'm going to give some serious attention to blogs, vlogs and my mogs and be back on track! I hope you've all had a good week :)

What's your favourite liquid lipstick?


  1. While attempting to find the perfect orange lipstick I came across Chi Chi's range of liquid lipsticks & I must say, I love them! Doe Foot applicators, long lasting, AND they leave a very pigmented 'stain' on the lips so you can apply a gloss over the top & still have great colour. Great post. I feel like liquid lipsticks are the new 'thing'.

  2. I love Stellar too! The lasting power is so impressive! :)

  3. I really need to get my hands on some of those bourjois lippies! I feel so left out haha! I have Stellar and while I love the color, the formula was pretty off putting for me... It just got..everywhere!

  4. I've never tried anything from Sephora but boy have I heard A LOT about their beauty products. The fact that I've now discovered that they deliver to the U.K. could be a big mistake LOL. Btw, great post as always :) X

  5. I recently picked up the Revlon Moisture Stain and I really love it, it's a lot like these.

  6. I love rimmel apocalypse too, thanks for sharing <3

  7. These look so good. I own one of the Rimmel shades but never use it. I really need to shop at Sephora one day x

  10. love all of these shades! I have never tried the rimmel ones but the colours are wonderful and so pigmented xx

  11. I'm loving liquid lipsticks lately too, the sephora lip creams are particularly impressive. I need to get my hands on a bourjois rouge edition velvet too, but I just can't pick a colour! x
