As if I needed another lipstick. Well at least that’s what I told Instagram when I got these beauties in the mail. But clearly, a girl can never have too many lipsticks. And with pretty much every brand having a liquid lipstick line now, you can see how necessary it was to grab a few ;-). I haven’t picked up anything from BH Cosmetics since back in my newbie beauty blogging days but when I heard they were the next brand to release a line of liquid lipsticks I thought I would check them out. BH Cosmetics is a super affordable brand and as girl on a budget, that meant I could get three instead of one, so that’s exactly what I did.
I decided to go with a really light color not really a nude but something I could blend really nice with a brown liner; a red because ’tis the season; and of course a vampy purple because we ALL know how much I love purple lipstick. I ended up getting Muse, Lust, and Icon.
As you can see Muse is LIGHT nude/pink. I mean light light. Was expecting a bit more brown to pull through and as a dark skin brown girl…this ain’t gonna work but it’s a pretty color that would work for lighter brown skinned girls. Lust is a deep brick red. Pretty simple color and nice for this fall/winter holiday season. Icon is a dark berry purple that is probably a dupe of two other dark purples I have but…you already know I don’t even care.
The colors alone aren’t anything to get all crazy over but let. me. tell. you. Icon layered over Lust is perfection. It really is. I mean, it’s hands down the perfect combination of berry, red, and purple. But what really makes these liquid lipsticks shine is the fact that they don’t move. Like at all. The first time I wore my new favorite combo (Icon and Lust) it wore for hours without budging. I mean through me talking away, eating dinner, giving my son a bath…it was still there. I had to scrub my lips and you could still faintly see it. And these swatches? They stayed on till I scrubbed them off in the shower. I’m telling you, they take long lasting to a new level. So beauties that aren’t here for reapplying, this is kind of a big deal.
So far, I’m impressed and you’ll definitely be seeing me wearing the best lip color ever in my selfies pretty much through the rest of the winter. These are available on BH Cosmetics for $6 at the moment (you can’t beat that!) and if you’re going to try them out…Icon and Lust Queen. That is all.
Have you gotten a chance to try the BH Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks yet? What do you think?
Stay blessed beautiful!
