The Liquid Lipsticks

Top to bottom: YSL glossy stain in number 9, Rimmel apocalips in apocaliptic, Rimmel apocalips in Nude eclipse, Hourglass opague rouge liquid lipstick in Riviera. 

Has anyone else noticed lately that liquid lipsticks have absolutely boomed in the past few months? I guess it started with the beloved YSL glossy stains which come in a glorious shade range and have a divine finish and pop of colour. The high street/drug stores quickly took note, and before you knew it brands such as Rimmel, Bourjois and Maxfactor were churning out their versions. I have picked out my favourites, which of course begins with the gorgeous YSL glossy stain in number 9. This shade gives the lips the most incredible hot orangey red glossy finish which I have to say cannot be rivalled. Hourglass's Opague Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera comes the closest to the beauty of the YSL stains, but it is a far more unique, bright orangey shade which I am completely head over heels in love with. My drugstore faves have to be the Rimmel Apocalips which every beauty blogger and their mum went mad for when they first launched. In my opinion they have a much nicer texture and longer wearablility than both the Hourglass & YSL offerings, and my favourite shades are Nude Eclipse (a glossy nude) and Apocaliptic (a glossy hot pink). All in all the liquid lipstick offers a more interesting, shiny & glossy alternative to traditional lipstick which will be sure to see me through the Christmas party season :) 

What do you think about liquid lipsticks and stains? Do you have any favourites? 



  1. Liquid lipsticks are great! I've been coveting the Luna Apocalips for months now but everytime I get into the queue, I convince myself that it won't suit a pale skin tone and chicken out. Perhaps that means it's Christmas wish list material... xx


  2. I have the apocalips and love it! The YSL one looks really good and I will def try it out.


  3. I haven't actually tried any yet, but I have heard such amazing things about the rimmel apocalips. I think that'll be the first one i'll try :)

  4. I have one of the rimmel apocalypse and while I love the shade and how it looks! I don't like how messy it can get!

  5. Topshop actually do some really good liquid lipsticks, they do a deep purple which seems perfect for Autumn! I am dying to try the Rimmel Apocalypse though - that colour you have looks amazing!

  18. I have one of the YSL Glossy Stains from the Spring collection- Rose Forreau, it is so beautiful but I haven't been wearing it much as of late. In Canada they are releasing a Maybelline version of the glossy stains soon which I'm looking forward to (those dang American's already have them).
