Anytime anyone asks me about what lipstick I use the answer is always ‘Creeper’ Ultra Matte liquid lipstick by Colourpop Cosmetics, because 95% of the time that’s what I wear. Still, despite my dedication to that particular product and shade, I still regularly like to try out other liquid lipsticks just in case there is, unlikely as it is, a product out there that will rate a perfect 5 out of 5.
When it comes to liquid lipsticks, I’ve also learned it’s a fairly individual thing which formulas work for you. What might feel too drying for one person might be perfect for someone else. What melts off in the corners of my mouth might stay unsmudged on someone with differently shaped lips. So while the Colourpop Ultra Mattes are my Holy Grail, my friend Hope prefers Jeffree Star’s Velour liquid lipstick range, and sweet little angel that she is, she sent me one to try out.
