Welcome back to my blog, or if you’ve just come across The Disoriental:
Hello! Welcome! Come in! Have a cuppa!
We are now in the FOUTH week since starting the Valentines’ liquid lipstick saga! This is also the FINAL week of introducing the liquid lipsticks involved, and so far we had:
If you haven’t read the first three posts yet, you can read the series here.
Now… Which one emerged as the forerunner from the third week??
Beauty Bakerie’s Cranberry Stiletto
Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip-Liquid Matte Lipstick in shade CRANBERRY STILETTO
Sugarpill’s Nurse Lip Colour was divine as a liquid lipstick, however, I just couldn’t take the sweet smell - it became to sickly (ironically) for me… Which is a shame, considering the fact that the formula was one of the best ones I’ve come across so far.
It was such a dilemma for me as I tried to accept the smell of Nurse for the sake of the formula, but just couldn’t.
So… Who will join JSC’s Redrum, Lime Crime’s Red Velvet and Beauty Bakerie’s Cranberry Stiletto on the forefront?
The final two liquid lipsticks introduced are:
*Maxfactor Lipfinity Lip Colour in shade SO GLAMOROUS.
*Maybelline’s Super Stay 24H Lip Colour in shade RED PASSION.
Until recently, Maxfactor had been an essential brand in my makeup bag - I’ve found it to be one of most consistent drugstore brands out there.
Maybelline was a lesser used brand, but I’ve always heard of its consistencies too alongside a few others such as Rimmel and Bourjois.
These two liquid lipsticks were quite similar to each other. They both applied with a lipgloss-like consistency, and dried out semi-matte. Both had a two-step application: first, the lip colour followed by the lip bam for moisturising and finishing with a shine effect.
Maybelline’s Red Passion was ever-so-slightly less pigmented and spreads out slightly more thinly than Maxfactor’s So Glamorous. Not that much of an issue though, as both are very buildable lip colours.
They both work similar to lip tints, and upon application just need some care and focus as if it draws out of line, you need to swiftly remove it or it will leave a quite a stain already!
Although both are very long-lasting and durable, I found Maybelline’s Red Passion to be just slightly more nourishing and lasting in terms of retaining the lips’ softness.
Both have virtually no smudge upon drying, and I am exceptionally impressed by the value of them (both costing just about 10-11GBP per lip colour) for the quality of product.
I particularly liked Maybelline’s Red Passion applicator - it was very efficient for my lip shape and could really fill out the edges of my lips to great satisfaction! It also has this faint sweet smell like sugar-coated pastilles which as seen earlier, is not exactly my favourite aspect, but at least it’s faint…
So which liquid lip is one step closer to being my valentine?
We shall find out next week!
Which one do YOU think will make it through to the final 4?
