Lippie Love: Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Nude Rose

~purchased by me~

This is my second foray into the “liquid lips” category, the first being Too Faced’s Melted line (if that even falls into that category). So far, I’m liking it. Not the fastest way but I like the end result.

Let me explain myself. Application wise, they apply like a gloss. They do not feel tacky or sticky to me but they do slide while it is wet. It needs to set for it to last longer so I discovered the best way is to apply an even thin layer, let it dry and apply a second thin coat for good measure. This gives me a good 4-5 hours with straw sipping.

The formula is neither hydrating or drying. Best to exfoliate and moisturize pre-application. It is opaque in one layer. The applicator is perfect. It grabs the right amount of product to apply that first layer.

I got mine in my favorite shade, a lovely rosey nude shade from Nordstrom for $28. Also available at Sephora.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Love Bite

~purchased by me~

#CharlotteTilburyLoveBite

Everytime I foray into a new brand for lip products, particularly lipsticks, I always get one red. If you know me personally or have seen my FOTDs or selfies, you know I rarely wear red on the lips. I love my nude pink, nude peach, pink-mauves and corals but I have a hard time finding a super good red. It’s not my way to measure how good a brand is but since I rarely wear and only use it for certain occasions, mainly parties. So with that in mind, I look for an opaque, non-drying, moisturizing, non-feathering, non-migrating, long lasting formula. Slight staining properties is a plus (stains with same color as the shade used). All the above without any aids, meaning lipliner, concealer on the edges, anti-feathering liner.

This is love at first swipe. Opaque at first swipe, non-drying, moisturizing, long-lasting with slight staining capabilities. And then I find smudges of the lipstick on my chin, above my upper lip, etc. Maybe I should let it dry first. Ugh, I still love it so much.

#CharlotteTilburyLoveBite

I would give this a 4/5. I took one point away for the feathering. Despite that, it is still my top red lipstick. Do you have a top red lipstick in your collection? Do share below and thanks for dropping by.
