The Liquid Lipstick For The Girl Who Thinks She Hates Liquid Lipstick

The Liquid Lipstick For The Girl Who Thinks She Hates Liquid Lipstick

Hate liquid lipstick, love the effect? You’re in for a treat

It's love, but I'm willing to share. 

I have somewhat of a tumultuous relationship with liquid lipstick. I like it in theory, but in execution, we really don't mesh well together. I should qualify that statement with the specification that liquid lipstick these days tends to be of the matte variety, and despite my best efforts, I just can't get into that. I like my lips to look juicy, plump, and hydrated. It's just my personal preference. I detest dryness in all forms, but particularly when it comes to my perpetually chapped lips. 

So when I got my hands on the new NARS Velvet Glide Lipstick (£22, Selfridges.com), I was apprehensive, mostly because I didn't read the packaging. I saw that it was liquid and probably would have written it off had I not swatched it on my hands.

It was so creamy, so smooth, and much to my surprise, it doesn't dry down to a matte finish.

You twist these gorgeous tubes open and slick on a lovely, even coat. What's left is gorgeously covered lips that are comfortable and nourished. And did I mention they have a beautiful sheen that will give your lips a plumper appearance?

Love lipsticks? This guide matches you with the perfect red for your pout!

The colour selection is divine, but my personal favourite is Toy, a moody, deep purple-y red. Oh, and when it wears down, you have a gorgeous stain, but your lips are still moisturised.

You're going to be obsessed I promise you. It's the most comfortable liquid lipstick I have ever worn. I'm re-thinking the whole genre because of it.
