I am a mauve lipstick lover. Day to day, I’m wearing a neutral lip. While I love hot pinks and reds, I just don’t reach for them on a daily basis. I like something that looks natural and not too done up…for the parent pick up line, library, and play dates. Haha.
I like to apply my lipstick in the morning, and not have to reapply for awhile, so matte liquid lipsticks are my favorite right now. It seems like every brand is coming out with their version, and it’s hard to choose!
I have 5 of my favorite MLBB (my lips but better) matte colors that are pretty neutral and will work on just about anyone! All of the brands and formulas I have here are non-drying, and they LAST. If you need advice on how to apply, click here for my tips.
If you’re looking for a pinkier mauve, Kat Von D’s Lovesick is a really nice neutral without being too brightly pink. It has a bit of purple to it, but is still considered nude to me. A color that is very similar to it is Colourpop Clueless. This is one is a tad bit darker; not as bright. A darker mauve color is Marvelous Mauve by Sephora Collection. This almost matches my lip color exactly. This is the most long wearing one out of the bunch on me.
The Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Bombshell is a more warmer, brown-y toned color, and more liquid in consistency than the others. I also love the smell of these! If you are looking for a true mauve with some grayish purple to it, Too Faced Queen B is so so so pretty.
Here are some swatches with no filter:
What is your favorite neutral liquid lipstick? …because I need more! Haha
