It used to be that when you stepped into a Sephora or drug store there were only basic matte lipsticks in a small variety of colors. Now there are a wide variety of brands and colors to choose from and you also have a liquid lipstick option. Liquid lipsticks come in a form of a gloss, but dries as a matte. As they become more popular, you can get it in almost any color and price point. So, what’s the hype about liquid lipstick?

One of the major benefits of liquid lipstick is how matte they are but yet still very vibrant in color. They also have the ability to dry quickly and last all day. In most cases you only need one coat which is a lifesaver.

I also find the application to be a bit more precise than a regular lipstick. Most liquid lipsticks come in a narrow tube with an applicator attached to the top. So instead of trying to put regular lipstick on your lips without over-lining them, you’ll have a tool to guide you.

Since they are so popular, there are tons of colors to choose from. Sometimes I can find colors I want in liquid lipstick form before I can in a regular lipstick. Also, with their increasing popularity, almost every brand has them now. So if you’re at the drug store you can find them in brands like NYX. If you’re going higher end you can use Anastasia Beverly Hills or Kat Von D.
