One of the best things about the fall and winter seasons is changing up your lip color! The easiest trend to get you fall-ready is to try out a darker lip.
Liquid lipsticks and stains are all the rage right now, and rightfully so! All of these that I have picked out are so easy and blendable to apply, and will last super long on your lips.
A tip that I would give when applying liquid lipstick is to first, exfoliate your lips really well. Since these are more of a liquid consistency, they will show cracks and dry patches in your lips. Second, I always like using a balm before applying these for added moisture – matte lippies can often be pretty drying.
Ok, let’s get into it!
Sephora really knows how to do a lip stain. I have tried two different types from their Sephora Collection. The first is their Rouge Infusion Lip Stain. These almost have a water-like consistency and are so smooth and blendable. They can be applied sheer or built up for more coverage. After applied, they aren’t sticky and they don’t dry out your lips. Shown here is the color Coral Extract.
The other kind that I like from the Sephora Collection are the Cream Lip Stains. Unlike the Rouge Infusion Stains, these are creamy and give very high coverage (the others are more sheer). The color shown is Always Red, which is a matte red.
Next is from Anastasia Beverly Hills and it is the Liquid Lipstick in Veronica. These are full-coverage, matte, liquid creams. This color is a beautiful browny-pink. I have a full review on this one here.
The next one is a cult-favorite, so much so that I couldn’t get my hands on it until just recently. This is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Lipstick in Lolita. This is very similar to the Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Veronica, except lighter, and more pink. (It’s hard to tell from the swatches). The consistency is the same, but I feel like this one is a bit more drying. Make sure to use a balm first!
The last one here is a very special lip color to me. This is the Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor in the shade Bare Maximum. The reason this is special to me is because this is the lipcolor that I wore on my wedding day 6 years ago! I like these because you can wear them matte, or shiny with the gloss on the other end of the tube. These are creamy and last a really long time. This shade is a nude pinky-brown, and I think I’ve repurchased this shade about 4 times . See? I was already ahead of the game on the liquid lip trend 🙂

I love the colours but I’m not a huge lipstick girl, I think stains are too much for me to handle lol x
Great review! I love liquid lipsticks this time of year! Some of my favorites are from Milani!
Thank you! I need to try the Milani ones, I have heard great things about them!
I love Sephora lip stains too, particularly the Rogue Infusion. Have tried one KVD but that one did not last on me at all. Gorgeous red but it went all over the place. 😦
The Sephora ones are really good! Oh man I have heard that about the Kat Von D ones.
I only tried the red one so I can’t speak for all of them but yeah, it was not pretty although the color is, lol.
I’ve never tried much from the Sephora range, but I’ve been hearing that their lip products are actually quite good, I think the next time I go I’ll try and swatch some of them.
They are great and often overlooked! I hope you like them 🙂
