I'm a bit of a lipstick lover and matte lipsticks have always appealed to me for their flawless finish and the lack of 'hair caught on mouth' issues that I find with glossier lip products. The rise of liquid-to-matte lipsticks in the UK is something that excites me so much after seeing them mentioned on many American YouTube and Instagram pages. My first forray into this area is through the form of Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks in the shades 'Serenity' and 'Ecstacy'.
I love to mix the two lipsticks together to create an ombré effect as once dried they stay on for such a long time without the colours blending.
I specifically love the shade Ecstacy as its quite out there for me (being more purple toned) but I got so many compliments wearing this combo that I can't really complain. It's good to branch out of your comfort zone anyway right?
I can't wait to try some liquid lipsticks from other brands, at the moment I've got my eye on the Kat Von D, Anastasia Beverly Hills & Jeffree Star ones. I like the look of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks but I'm worried they might be too sticky in formula, what do you guys think?
