My pick from the drugstore would be the Sleek Matte Me lip colour – especially the shade Fandango purple. They are the best on the high street and give you change from a fiver. Happy days. The applicator is a little too rigid, but the formula is spot on and they settle down in seconds to a super matte finish.
It seems that a lot of amazing liquid lipstick come from across the sea – Jeffree Star, Gerard Cosmetics and Dose of Colours are ones I lusted over whilst watching american youtubers, but now they’re relatively easy to get hold of. My favourite is the Jeffree Star, because omg so good. My picks would be Androgyny, Redrum and Unicorn blood. The most insanely pigmented formula, and pretty comfortable on. Similarly comfortable, the Gerard cosmetics Hydra matte liquid lipsticks are really nice to wear… for the first 6 hours or so. Then, they need severe lip balm or maintenance or they’ll flake off. I also find that the colour tends to get darker the more you wear them – like oxidising? The most drying is the Dose of Colours. They go on so creamily, but do dry down a lot. Equally though, they do stay essentially perfect until you take them off.
