I finally dared to check out some liquid lipsticks. This is MAC Feels So Grand.
This is the swatch mostly dried down. One swipe. The amount of color you can get from such a liquid lippie is insane. The finish is very matte. In fact MAC calls these the retro matte liquid lip color. This is the mattest stuff I own. It emphasizes you know not the lines, as it doesn’t pool in them or anything, but the lips look super not smooth. Afterwards the lips feel dry but it’s not too bad.
Color comparisons with regular lipsticks. The liquid one is just so much deeper. Colorwise it seems to be in between Mrs Mia Wallace and Viva Glam I.
I like that the applicator it is really precise. You can get good, crisp lines. Once on and dried (it takes a minute to be dry) it just will not come off again. You need oil remover to get it off. Also when you get it on glasses or stuff like tooth brushes, you need to clean those by hand because the lipstick will cling forever. Funnily enough even though it stays on the lips it still rubs off everywhere!
I had a long meal and the lipstick did wear off on the inside, but only there and I think that only a beauty blogger would notice that. I wasn’t left with a two toned mouth or something. So wow, this really works. To be honest I still prefer regular lipstick bcause you can reapply more easily – reapplying on top of liquid lipstick can get weird and flakey. Secondly the liquid calls for a sharp outline which emphasizes how my mouth is not symmetrical at all. But those are personal points. The lipstick is still totally worth it.
