Today we’re talkin’ FUNKY lip colors! My favorites, to be specific. Scroll below to see my thoughts on and swatches of these three lippies.
From R to L…
First up, we have the most beautiful orange shade ever. This liquid lipstick from Lime Crime makes my complexion look so bright and my teeth so white. Who could have ever thought a tangerine lipstick could make you look so good? I had lusted for a shade like this for YEARS and determined I would have to make it myself because it didn’t exist. Then I found Squash. I love the color and I love the formula of Lime Crime’s Velvetine lipsticks. They’re thin and last for-EVER.
Next is Maybelline Vivid “Matte” liquid lipstick in Vivid Violet. Let’s just start off by saying this formula is not matte. Not in any way, shape or form. Once you get that expectation out of your head you can fully enjoy this lipstick for what it is– a beautifully plush, vibrant purple that makes a super impact. The formula is a bit streaky but I’ve learned over the wears that the more you try to even it out with the applicator, the less anything changes. This plush formula works best when you apply and then rub your lips together. It does transfer but this purple, you guys. It’s soooooo pretty. I don’t even care!
Last up is what was ONCE my favorite liquid lipstick formula, Smashbox’s Always On liquid lip. I say ONCE because when these lipsticks are brand new, their formula is unbeatable. It’s thick (in a good way), opaque and the applicator gets every corner of your mouth covered in one fell swoop. and once the product was on? Didn’t budge. I bought so many of these lipsticks but now I’ve learned time does not bode well on them. They’ve now gotten thick (in a bad way) and are difficult to apply. That being said, their longevity still stands true and if you just thin out the formula with some Fix+, you’re back in business. Chill Zone is a super “cool girl” grey. Like, come on. Who rocks grey lips? You’ll become instantly cool, er, chill, while still feeling like this warm taupey grey is wearable.
Would you wear any of these crazy colors? Let me know below what your “go-to” funky lip product is.
