It all started with Poet, then I had to get a couple more of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks. The wear for these is amazing! And so, I also ordered this lipstick in Madison and Sugar Plum:
Even though Poet was the first color I was drawn to, I think it ended up looking a little too dark and morose on me. However, I loved the actual lipstick formula so much I chose a couple more colors to try: Madison and Sugar Plum, which I think both look much better with my complexion.
The applicator for Anastasia’s Liquid Lipsticks is a flat sponge-tip. It ensures much more accuracy than a wand with a tiny brush. And, because these lipsticks will stay put once they set (which happens very quickly) it is good to be able to put the color on precisely.
Liquid Lipsticks are very highly pigmented, liquid until they set (which only takes a minute or 2), non-drying, waterproof and smudge-resistant.
I think any of these would do well paired with a lipgloss, for when you do want a bit of shine. Liquid Lipsticks are each priced at $20.00 on the Anastasia site, and they are net wt 3.2g/0.11oz.
The colors I chose:
- POET—A toned-down, earthy and moody mauve
- MADISON—A striking, deep, blue-toned plum/fuschia
- SUGAR PLUM—An iridescent medium raspberry pink
I think the color Poet looks a little goth on me, which, unless I’m going for that, may be a bit much for normal day wear. I like both of the other two very well. However, I REALLY like iridescence of Sugar Plum. Madison is fun, and it definitely makes a statement with its unusual purple!
There are 39 colors in all to choose from of these full-coverage, opaque Liquid Lipsticks.
The most unusual colors, that might be fun to wear clubbing, include: Grim (griege), Requiem (metallic teal), Rio (blue-toned hot pink), and Potion (dark purple/burgundy).
And, the next few I want to get are: Vintage (dark orchid), Dusty Rose (warm, nude mauve), and Katheryn (brown berry).
*If you decide to purchase one or some of these, btw, I noticed that Nordstrom currently has these on sale for 15% off or $17.00.
