Artificial Lighting                                                        Natural Lighting

Top to Bottom: 1.Nyx Stockholm, 2.Nyx San Paulo, 3. Nyx Prague, 4. Nyx Monte Carlo, 5. Nyx Copenhagen, 6. Make up Revolution Velvet Laquer Keep Lying For You and 7. Kat Von D Lolita II


It's all about the Kylie Jenner Matte lip at the moment. I'm a huge fan of Matte lips and have amassed quite a collection of liquid lipsticks over a short period of time. Here are the brands I own and what I think:
1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Stockholm
This is a subtle nude liquid lipstick with a hint of pink. Perfect for everyday wear.

2. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - San Paulo
This lip colour is supposed to be a lighter pink but on my very fair skin it becomes a bright pink. Not dissimilar to the next lip colour I mention. If you're fair skinned you won't need both colours.

3. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Prague
A dark pink lip - I am always looking for pink colours that don't look too bright and this is perfect. Very similar to San Paulo on the lip with my fair skin.

4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Monte Carlo
The perfect bright red lip colour. Would universally work for everyone if a red lip is your thing.

5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Copenhagen
This is probably my favourite colour out of the lot. A deep burgundy red. I love a dark red lip look it goes great on very fair skin.

The formula for the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams is so smooth and easy to apply. The product only lasts for about 4 hours without a lip liner. However these are only £5.50 each from Boots so around a third of the price of the expensive brands. Perfect if you want to join in the Matte Lip craze but don't want to pay the crazy prices from high end brands. I must say as well these smell amazing so sweet almost hinted with vanilla.

6. Makeup Revolution Velvet Lacquer - Keep Lying for You
The colour of this is a mix between a pink and a purple. I saw a friend of mine wearing it and loved it so much I had to buy it.

At £3.00 this is the cheapest liquid lipstick I own and while it doesn't last as long as the others once you put it on it does not leave residue. Not on cups, glasses or even your hand if you wipe your mouth. 
The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are so silky that if you use a glass or wipe your mouth expect to leave a stain of colour.
Therefore at £3 this is a bargain especially if you're only going out for a few hours it would be perfect.
7. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Lolita II
I had heard so much hype over this brand that when I went to the USA I knew I had to pick up one of the liquid lipsticks.

I ended up choosing Lolita II which is a subdued brick orange colour. I chose this over Lolita because I preferred it for my skin tone. As you can see from the photos it is definitely the best quality liquid lipstick I own! One swipe and that much pigmentation?! Yes please. 
The brand does not disappoint and while this is abit drying on the lips (what Matte lipstick isn't ?) It is definitely worth the higher price if you can get your hands on one. 
The hype is real with this brand and I wish I had bought !ore than one colour. Can Kat Von D please bring her makeup range to the UK!?
So that's my collection so far. I will admit I do have some of Jefree Star's liquid lipsticks on the way. I can't wait to see what they are like!

Are you a big liquid lipstick fan? Matte or glossy? What is your go to brand?

Thanks for Reading!!
