“The best colour in the whole world
is the one that looks good on YOU.
– Coco Chanel (French Fashion designer and business woman)
If you are a creative person like a Makeup Artist, Architect (like me) or even an Artist of some kind, you would know how it feels to work with colours of your choice. Colours fascinated me both professionally and personally. Personally, I go crazy when I swatch lipsticks and eye shadows at a beauty store. Now that you have such an array of colours to choose from, you can imagine what happens to me at a beauty store.
When I first saw Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick swatches on beautiful women over the internet from around the world, I also used to secretly pray to own these pretty little things. I love the beautiful range of lip colours that are available at Anastasia Beverly Hills. Finally, thanks to Ship out from USA, my dreams have come true to wear them on my lips.
Anastasia Beverly Hills is a global cosmetics brand, founded in 1997 by Romanian-born beauty entrepreneur, Anastasia Soare. She started with her brow shaping services and products. Today, Anastasia Beverly Hills is a much sort after brand, that provides you with an array of products ranging from brow shaping, Liquid lipsticks, glosses, lip primers, foundation, eyeshadows, highlighters and so on.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid lipsticks are one of the most popular items and come in beautiful colours. There are different lip colours for every skin tone. The most fascinating part is the packaging. First of all, it comes in an impressive plastic see through bottle with a metal cap and also has the Anastasia insignia around the top part of the bottle in gold. Seems like there were some problems in the formula of liquid lipsticks in the older lot, as conveyed by many youtubers and bloggers. Probably, Anastasia Beverly Hills worked around it I guess, because my recent buy had absolutely no problem whatsoever and was very light on my lips.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid lipsticks are indeed, as she describes them, as an intensely pigmented, cult-favorite liquid formula that delivers a rich, long-wearing matte look to lips. Furthermore, the consistency is mousse like. It comes with a doe foot applicator and can be applied very easily. This lipstick requires only one coat and dries out instantly without making the lips feel tacky or heavy. They do not transfer and have a staying power of 6 to 8 hours. UNLESS you eat greasy food that will smudge up the lipstick starting from the center.
I purchased 5 liquid lipsticks with my own money. For your information I am NC 44.5 in MAC
- Dusty rose
- Soft Lilac
Dusty Rose : This liquid lipsticks is described as a nude mauve shade. On my skin tone this looks like a light mauve pink shade and is very pretty.
Soft Lilac: This is a beautiful pale violet shade and looks the same on my skin tone. Its a pretty colour.
Ashton: MY LIPS BUT BETTER shade, perfect nude colour, very flattering with a dark eyeshadow look and aptly described by Anastasia Beverly Hills as midtone yellow brown.
Alison: Alison can also be described as MY LIPS BUT BETTER pinky brown nude shade. It really looks beautiful on my skin tone and is a universally flattering shade.
Kathryn: This is my favourite shade among all the 5 lipsticks I purchased. I completely love how it looks on my skin and this is a very wearable colour. The shade is described as a brown berry colour. On me it looks like a terracotta pinkish red. Very flattering.
Tip: use a lip scrub to scrub your lips and then apply these lippies to avoid extreme drying.
