A smile with brightly colored youthful lips enhances your appearance. Now-a-days many cosmetics are available in the form of sticks, tubes, pencils and liquids in markets.
Liquid lipsticks are like the bronde of makeup, becoming more and more popular by the day. Here, everything you need to know about these pigments that pack a punch — plus 10 of the best formulas you need to swipe on, stat.
1. It contains the pigment of a lipstick, and the glide and sheen of a gloss. Liquid lipsticks leave behind that candy apple-like coating — minus the stick — on your lips, but you can blot them with a tissue to make them appear more matte, makeup artist Kayleen McAdamssays. Try Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in “Muse.”
2. You only need one coat. Liquid lipsticks are the lip equivalent to makeup’s one-coat wonders, meaning you can achieve the opaque pigment you want with one swipe. That said, if you want to make the color more dramatic, go ahead and apply coats two and three. Try Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in “Distinction.”
3. Its formula is buildable. Liquid lipsticks are meant to be opaque, but you can make it look more like a stain if you blot the color with a tissue. “If I want my clients to have a lighter finish that’s not too thick, I have them blot after I apply one coat of the color,” McAdams says. That way it leaves a hint of color that will stay all day or night long, yet still have the tiniest bit of shine to it. But, if you want it to be more intense, simply add on another layer. Try Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick in “Nude.”
