The minute I heard about these new liquid lipsticks by Maybelline, I knew I had to grab a few once they launched over here. Of course it took a while to make it across and we get far fewer states than in the US, but these liquid lipsticks are totally worth the hype. Say hello to the best liquid lipstick currently available in the drugstore.

Some of my favorite liquid lipstick formulas are by Ofra and Kat Von D, but lately Anastasia Beverly Hills has also made its way on the list. I only had one of those, a bright watermelon shade, but I found myself wearing it a lot because I liked the formula so much. Time to try some more shades and see whether that one great shade was a fluke or whether the line is just great.

In my first impressions video you will have seen that I was very impressed with some new liquid lipsticks Essence came out with. Meet the new Metal Shock and Vibrant Shock lip paints. These lip creams should be right on trend and offer velvet matte result. Let’s see how all shades work out.

Finally! Catrice released some matte lipsticks. They have had different formulas over the years, some of which boast being matte, but those usually came in a different shape than a traditional lipstick. So it was about time that Catrice translated their popular Ultimate… formula into a matte. Catrice is one of my favorite drugstore brands for lipsticks and so I was very curious to try these.

Still looking for the best liquid lipstick? Then look no further, because I found it. Most people’s gripe about liquid lipsticks is how uncomfortable they are. Since they dry down matte, the lipsticks usually leave a layer that feels like you put vinyl on your lips and that forms a barrier to anything that might touch it. When it wear off it crumbles down instead of fading away, which makes touching up a heinous job. Not with the Ofra ones!

If you’re thinking: hey Maaike, didn’t you do this review a few months ago? Then why, yes, I did, but today’s post will feature some different colors and textures. I simply fell in love with my Colourpop products so much the first time round, that I placed a new order back when they had another discount and free international shipping. Last time I felt I got mostly winter shades, so I wanted to get some brighter and more wearable shades. The more wearable shades will be coming up in a different blog post. So today’s focus will be the brighter shades.

When you buy 3 lipsticks from different brand, but they all fit the same look and feel, what do you do? Yes, you lump them together into one review. I did pick all of these up around the same time though, but just hadn’t gotten around to the review just yet. I bought these in London last year, but since the Maybelline and Bourjois lipsticks only made their way into our drugstores here fairly recently, I decided this was the best time to post.
