Best Liquid Lipstick

Liquid lipstick has come a long way, baby! A few years ago, when the concept of lipstick in a lip gloss tube was introduced to the market, beauty junkies everywhere found themselves with a formula that was dry, flaky, and lacking the wearable comfort of traditional lipstick. It was a bitter pill to swallow for many of us who rejoiced at the promise of a lip product that would survive an evening of eating and drinking but in reality left us crying tears of sorrow into our champagne glass as it clumped and flaked off half way through the night. However, ladies, I am here today to tell you that liquid lipstick has reinvented itself a la 1998 Madonna and has emerged triumphant!

Today’s liquid lipsticks are easy to apply with applicator wands that draw a precise line and eliminate the need for lipliner. They are hydrating, smooth, and comfortable to wear, with staying power that traditional lipstick simply cannot match. I am such a fan of these formulas and I very rarely reach for any other type of lip product anymore. Read on for my recommendations of the liquid lipsticks that I consider to be the cream of the crop!


Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia was one of the first liquid lipsticks that I owned and I still think her formulas are top of the line. With 30 ultra-pigmented shades, every woman can find their perfect color!  My favorite Anastasia colors:

  • Trust Issues- Deep wine color
  • Craft- Bright pink
  • Milkshake- Peachy nude


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

To say that I am obsessed with this lipstick would be a gross understatement! If I could only wear one lip product for the rest of my life, this would be the winner. It’s just that good! The formula is absolutely perfect, gliding on smoothly and not caking at all. Best of all, it comes in 44 shades!! Seriously! Here are four of my personal favorites:

  • Bow N Arrow- Brownish nude with 90s vibes
  • Ludwig- The absolute best mauve nude color
  • Lolita- Deep rose color with a cult following
  • Hawkwind- Deep wine color


Colourpop Ultra Matte/Satin Lip

Colorupop make three different formulations of their liquid lipstick and I like both the matte and the satin finishes. The satin finish is my personal favorite because it feels a bit more hydrating, but I often find myself wearing the matte formula as well due to the color options. Between the two formulas there are 114 shades, so the options really are endless! Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Beeper- Rose color with brown undertone
  • Flurries- Rich rose color
  • Dopey- Pink with a hint of purple undertone


Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick

This is a newer discovery for me and I have been pleasantly surprised by the formula and its longevity. The only downside to this product is the lack of shades with only 22 colors.

  • Melted Ice Cream- Pink nude
  • Drop Dead Red- Red wine color for people like me who look weird in true red
  • Lady Balls- True red with blue undertones
