Hello again! Tomorrow is National Lipstick Day and I thought the perfect way to celebrate would be to swatch every lipstick I own!
Top to Bottom: NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream “Natural”; NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream “Cannes”; NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream “Madrid”; Anastasia Beverly Hills “Pure Hollywood”; Anastasia Beverly Hills “Lovely”; Kat Von D “Melancholia”; Kat Von D “Susperia”; Laura Mercier “Tulip”
1, 2, & 3 – These NYX liquid lipsticks are nicely pigmented and last for a few hours before needing to be reapplied. The matte shades aren’t as drying as ABH shades but they aren’t as long-lasting either.
4 & 5 – As I just mentioned, these are very long-lasting but they do tend to dry out your lips. I’ve found that applying a little bit of chapstick or lip balm beforehand helps with that tremendously. The pigmentation and coverage are both really great.
6 & 7 – These Kat Von D liquid lipsticks came in a two-pack. I like the Susperia shade by itself, but the Melancholia shade washes me out a bit so I will usually layer it with Susperia. This formula is not drying at all and it lasts for several hours.
8 – This lippie from Laura Mercier is more like a gloss. It’s a pretty bright pink so I will sometimes layer this over the ABH Pure Hollywood to tone it down a bit. It doesn’t last as long since it is a gloss.
So, that’s it for my lipstick collection. I hope you all have a great weekend!
