High End or Drugstore: Matte Liquid Lipsticks

This is my first time trying out matte liquid lipsticks, I've got plenty matte lipsticks but never tried the liquid matte lipsticks.
I decided I would get a high end and a drugstore lipstick to try out and see what the difference in quality is like.
Let's start off with Drugstore, I went for the Nyx soft matte lip cream in the shade Tokyo. This is a light pink but still fairly bright, the formula is creamy as it says on the 'tin' it goes on very smoothly and dries fairly quick. Because of it's creamy formula it's not drying on the lips at all but on the flip side it does transfer a little bit so something to keep in mind. For me this was just too pink, if it was in a different shade I think I would really love it. At £7 it is a really great price and affordable to buy other colours to try out. I would give this a 7/10

Now for High End, Stila liquid lipstick in the shade Bellissima. This is a pinky coral shade and applies really good, you do get quite a lot of product on the sponge so need to wipe some off first. I have also found this to be a bit more drying on the lips so if you have dry lips you will definitely need to exfoliate them first to get rid of any flakiness. I do like how this mattifies a lot more than Nyx although I don't think I would be able to wear it for as long due to the dry texture. The staying power of this is amazing - you need to rub pretty hard to get this stuff off. At £15 this is a lot more pricier than Nyx. I'd give this 8/10
All in all I think both are great and I would repurchase both of them.
Have you tried out matte liquid lipsticks?

  2. I love liquid lipsticks! I've got some Kat Von D ones coming from the States and I'm so excited! I really want to try Nyx products cause I've heard such great things about them.
