I was totally convinced that the beauty community was going to pendulum away from matte liquid lipsticks allllll the way to glosses, but I'm so happy that they're holding strong! Matte liquid lipsticks are my favorites for long-wear because holy moly I'm all about transfer-proof. Want to know my personal faves? keep on reading!
from nude to deep red, left to right:
Tarte in Bestie - Beauty Bakerie in Syruptitious - Kat Von D Lolita I AND II - Kylie Cosmetics in Pumpkin - Jouer in Brique - Colourpop in Silhouette - Beauty Bakerie in Cranberry Stiletto (this one layers pretty weird- the rest of them are pretty easy application-wise, but this one can get wonky if you're not careful!)
(same order, from bottom to top)
Most smudge-proof: Beauty Bakerie (so. good. !!!)
Most comfortable: Tarte, Kylie, Jouer, Colourpop
Plays well with others: Tarte, Kat Von D, Jouer
Layers flawlessly: Tarte, Kat Von D, Jouer
Ignore that little smudge- I was taking pictures one-handed and trying to juggle my ring light that didn't want to stay where it was supposed to! It took a dive riiiight into my Colourpop red, hence the mini devil-tail.
