7 Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

7 Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

Liquid lipsticks are a stable nowadays to anyone’s makeup collection and most brands have a liquid lipsticks on their collection.

I want to stay Stila started this trend, at least from what I remember.

Anastasia must’ve came out with liquid lipsticks shortly after, and they did an equally great job. Their formula and pigmentation is wonderful, although, more on the dry side.

An average price for one these types of lipsticks are usually around $19, which may seem a bit pricey for some of you, but if you buy the right shade and if it is an everyday wearable color, you could get a good use out of it and would last a long time.

Personally, I rather get the better product and pay a little more to be able to get a better use out of it.

But on the contrary, recently I found that you can really find steals at the drug-store, which are just as good.

I always try to share with you guys the great drug store steals. In the investment world, you would call these the “unicorns” because they are so rare and yet so amazing!

Here’s My Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks:

  1.    Make Up Forever – Artist Liquid Matte 103

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This shade was in my very first blog post, monthly favorites, 2017 favorites and now it’s in my holy-grail liquid lipsticks post. Is that enough proof for you to see that I am obsessed! Whenever I am running out of my house and need to put on a lipstick really quick, I’ll gravitate towards this one as it is such a beautiful nude. I never run out of Liquid Lipsticks and I am at the end of this one!

  1.       Anastasia Beverly Hills – Trouble Liquid Lipstick

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

Love this color. It’s a beautiful nude with a hint of mauve, but not too bold. It’s so girly and perfect shade for a date night. It is a bit drying but just make sure you moisturize your lips before and you are good to go!

  1.       Stila – patina

This shade is my best friends favorite and I initially tried it from her collection and quickly fell in love with it. I love this one as it is such a unique color. It’s a little more on the darker side of things for nude lipsticks, but also a gorgeous color! It’s on the darker mauve  scale of things. If you follow Champagne & Chanel, then you’ve seen that she wears this all the time.

  1.       Dose of Colors – Truffle

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

I tried this the last months of 2017 and quickly fell in love. Dose of Colors have the most comfortable to wear liquid lipsticks! They feel like you are not even wearing lipstick. It’s not drying, and this shade is so beautiful. It’s on the brown side of nudes and an everyday wearable color!

  1.       Stila – Bacca

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This shade is hard to explain. It’s on the red spectrum, but has different undertones – more like on the pink/red side of things. It’s super wearable and is perfect for Valentine’s day if you want to do something different than just red lips. Anyone who isn’t sure if they can pull of red lipsticks, try this one and you might be shocked at how flattering this is!

  1.      Maybelline – 05 Loyalist

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This is a drugstore one – so it’s on the affordable side of things. I honestly didn’t think I would like this as much as I do. I love wearing it alone, but also love wearing it on top of darker shades which allow for an ombré effect. I have two other shades from this line and love those as well.

  1.       Anastasia Beverly Hills – vamp Liquid Lipstick

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This one is a perfect fall shade. Or winter since that is the season we’re in now. Love how wearable this is as well and the perfect shade you will ever need for your fall/winter makeup looks! I feel like if I can somewhat pull it off with my small lips, then you can too! I mean it’s all about self-confidence. If you act confident – anything will look good on you 🙂

Top 5 All-Time Favorite Nude Lipsticks

Today we are talking all about nudes – shades of lipstick that is!

I don’t think I can leave the house without putting on one of these. I love how it transforms any dull look into looking like you actually took some time to do your makeup.

I’ll be honest though, I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup for work. Mainly because it’s not worth it, but also because I like giving my skin a chance to breath. I say that “it’s not worth it” because who are we really trying to impress at work? Really, I don’t understand office politics, so I like to be a rebel and not wear makeup because I am beautiful with or without it. 🙂

Although I don’t wear makeup, I do make sure I put on one of these lipsticks to give me some color to my face. It also looks very natural and down-to-earth. Nudes are my favorite shades because it’s so easy to wear everyday.

Too bad we can’t all be Rihanna and wear crazy lipsticks all the time. Wait, actually, no that goes against everything I believe. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU PLEASE. Do whatever makes your little heart happy and makes you feel the most confident. Taking care of yourself and making sure you look your best everyday is part of a self-love and self-care routine. When you look your best, you feel the most confident and can accomplish so much more. That saying “Fake it ‘till you make it” usually works when you feel and look your best; which the meaning can differ for everyone!

Okay, I’ll stop rambling. Here are my top 5 nudes with swatches:

1. Faux – MAC

IMG_1151

This is such a nice mauve tone and looks amazing on a lot of skin tones. I wear this one when I’m running late, and know I can depend on it looking good no matter what. This is my ride or die lipstick. If you think MAC lipsticks are a bit expensive, I would say that they are worth it because they last forever and are such great quality.

2) Cherish – MAC

IMG_1153

I go back and forth with this one and Faux. They’re both my constant go-to everyday lipsticks. They just never fail me. They’re both such beautiful colors. I love this one because it’s a little more wearable than a mauve tone. It’s not too nude, just the perfect shade for everyday wear. No matter what type of eye makeup I’m wearing or not wearing, it looks great. It’s a nice neutral nude.

3) Raquel – Nars

I love the formula in this. It’s applies so smoothly and is very moisturizing. This collection is so amazing, you can’t go wrong with any shades from Nars, but this one in particular is such a unique color and a great nude. It has a more of an orange undertone, but it’s beautiful. I wear this when I want to spice up my nude lip look.

4) Lip Tensity Driftwood – MAC

IMG_1154

This one’s another nice mauve color. I like how this one feels and is a bit more moisturizing. This is a newer one from their collection. I think it came out this past winter. It’s more of a darker mauve than Faux – which gives you a different variety.

5) Naked 2 – Urban Decay

IMG_1152

This is a nudey-nude. What I mean by that is that this is a pale nude. Looks great for when you have smokey eyes or wearing heavier makeup on your eyes. This one’s also very moisturizing which is a plus.

Okay that is all. This was pretty hard to only choose only 5, but at the end of the day, these are the 5 I wear the most often. I didn’t list my current favorite, which is the MUFE I mentioned in my previous post, which you can check out here.

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope everyone has a nice weekend. Don’t forget to come back Sunday for Self-Care Series # 2!

xoxo, Ozzy
