Mauve-Toned Liquid Lipsticks

Mauve-Toned Liquid Lipsticks

Mauve is arguably the most underrated lip color. It’s not quite nude, but it isn’t bold either, and it’s especially perfect for the winter months. I love the plummy undertones in these lipsticks, which are often marketed as “dusty rose” or “soft lilac.” Of course, […]

5 Nude Liquid Lipsticks for Summer

5 Nude Liquid Lipsticks for Summer

I’ve finally fallen in love with liquid lipstick. For a long time, I couldn’t get on the bandwagon for this trend because I found liquid lipstick so drying. These days, I can’t get enough of these long-wearing lipsticks. They apply so nicely, and I love that I can wear them alone for an ultra-matte look or with gloss. Here are 5 nude liquid lipsticks for summer, with great colors and great formulas.

5 Nude Liquid Lipsticks for Summer

  1. Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint “Namaste” – While this liquid lipstick isn’t transfer proof, it is somehow matte and moisturizing. The color of this lipstick is beautiful; a barely there nude with a tinge of pink, at once both sweet and sexy.
  2. Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip “Likely” – I don’t love Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Lip formula, but the Ultra Satin Lips are fabulous. They’re matte and they don’t dry my lips out, and they don’t crack. This color is a gorgeous peachy nude, and I’ve been wearing it nearly nonstop!
  3. Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick “Sugar” – Another lipstick that doesn’t dry down, but sits matte on the lip, this is a pretty true nude. I like wearing it on my own because I’m so fair, but it’s also a beautiful highlight in the middle of the lip.
  4. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick “Caramello” – This liquid lipstick is totally matte and transfer proof, but it doesn’t make my lips feel dry. In fact, it doesn’t really feel like lipstick at all. This color is a little more of a brown-nude, which makes it pretty for medium skin tones as well as fair skin tones like mine.
  5. Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit “Nudist Peach” – I love this peachy nude, especially with a shimmery gloss. While not all of the Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit lipsticks are equal (for instance, “Oh My Dolly” always cracks on my lips) but this shade is darling. It takes a few coats of total opacity, but it wears for a long time and feels super lightweight on the lips.

These liquid lipsticks are comfortable and long wearing. They all have different undertones, but they are definitely warm-weather nudes (though I would wear them all year round!)

Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick: Review & Swatches

I’ve finally started to like liquid lipsticks; my initial experiences with liquid lipsticks, especially those that dry matte, were rather unfortunate. I once thought that liquid lipsticks were nothing more than a dry, crumbly mess, but I have come to like liquid lippies. While the […]
