For fall 2018, Essence has of course also released some new lip products. They have revamped their entire line of velvet matte lipsticks and introduced some new liquid lipsticks too. Where I wasn’t a huge fan of the new Catrice lip products as they are not my cup of tea, I am much more excited about showing you these new Essence lip products. So let’s get to it.

Glitter Switch liquid lipstick Sparkling Bordeaux
Blue lipstick is not everyone’s cup of tea, but as you know, I like trying some weird shades. I have a history of reviewing lipstick lines by trying a nude, bright, red and a ‘weird’ color if the brand does them. And lately that has led me to wearing some blue lipsticks in my recent videos. I have been trying blue lipsticks for a while, but had not yet found quite the right one. Will these blue liquid lipsticks by NYX be the perfect blue lip?

I am not a huge fan of liquid eyeshadow. Creams I can get down with as they give you a bit of play time. A liquid eyeshadow however, can be difficult to apply as it usually sets and then just won’t budge. Especially, if it’s a super colorful or smokey shade, it is quite difficult to create a pretty diffused look. However, Essence came out with these metal shock liquid eyeshadows some time ago and they make for some of the prettiest affordable glitter eyeshadows I have ever seen.

You all know about my love for unusual lip colors right? So what about a straight up taupe? Named OG Ghoulist, this is a liquid lipstick cult classic by LA Splash. And the name couldn’t be more apt: this greyish toned brown is definitely not for the faint of heart.

I am not over the liquid lipstick trend. I just love a lipstick that lasts all day and doesn’t need any touching up. Especially in the spring and summer time, liquid lipsticks are my go to. The lipsticks won’t bleed, come in unusual colors and wear all day. These are my 7 favorite liquid lipsticks, both in color and formula.

In the new Catrice line up, it is all about that glow. Now many of the products are dubbed ‘holographic’, but so far none of the products I have tried come even close to being truly holographic. That said, however, that doesn’t mean these products aren’t pretty or don’t work well. Case in point: the new Galactic liquid highlighter.

The drugstore has finally jumped on the liquid lipstick band wagon. And how! First Maybelline released their Superstay Lip Inks, which made it to my 2017 favorites list and now Rimmel is following suit with their new Stay Matte lip. Will this formula be as wonderful as the Maybelline one?
