Do you ever have those moments where you watch different shows or YouTube videos and it seems like the same thing keeps getting brought up over and over across multiple shows / channels? Earlier this year I was having that issue, it seemed like no matter what YouTuber I watched they were always wearing Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick or it was their favorite. At first I tried to ignore it but it just seemed to keep happening more and more and more. Finally I decided to do something about it…I went out and purchased Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Soft Lilac and here are my thoughts!
As always before we get to what I thought we’re going to talk a bit about what the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick claims to do. Although, I guess before we talk about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick we should probably discuss what a liquid lipstick is and why you would want that over a regular lipstick. A liquid lipstick is obviously a lipstick in a liquid form rather than a solid “bullet” form. Usually a liquid lipstick comes in a tube and has an applicator of some kind, a dough-foot / sponge or brush applicator. A liquid lipstick is a highly pigmented lipstick that is different than a gloss in that it is more pigmented and isn’t as, well glossy. The main difference between a liquid lipstick and either a gloss or a regular lipstick is that you have to wait for liquid lipsticks to dry down, even if the liquid lipstick isn’t a matte texture.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick claims to be a full-coverage, matte liquid lipstick that will stay true to color and last for hours. Let’s break that down a bit shall we? Full-coverage means that the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick will apply opaque and you shouldn’t see your actual lips through the liquid lipstick. Which brings us to the next point, staying true to color. Staying true to color means that the color will apply as you see in packaging and will stay that color through wear, it will not morph during wear to something else. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick also claims that it will dry down to a matte texture which will help it to last for a really long time. Lastly, Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick has a color selection of 33 shades ranging from neutrals to brights.
The thing that I love most about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick is the color selection. There were quite a few that I was trying to choose between but I ultimately went with Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Soft Lilac because it was listed as a new shade and I’m glad that I did because it’s a gorgeous shade, especially for Fall. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick do transfer a bit especially if you eat, drink, or kiss before it’s fully dry. I recommend giving the back of your hand a kiss after the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick dries down to get any excess off before doing anything that would result in transfer. From there things do go a bit wonky with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, at least for me. I found that if I didn’t use a lip liner then the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick would feather out past my lips throughout the day. I also found that the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick would pebble and flake throughout the day if I applied it when my lips were dry and not conditioned.
Ultimately my recommendation for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Soft Lilac is that if you don’t have dry lips then this is for sure a shade you should pick up! For those with dry lips if you plan to exfoliate and condition your lips before using then also pick this up, however, if you know that you’re totally not going to be willing to exfoliate and condition then you’re probably going to want to skip the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Soft Lilac because you’re just not going to be happy with the end results.
