If you ask me, liquid lipstick > regular lipstick. There’s something about the color payoff with a liquid lip that makes them bolder, brighter and longer-lasting than their solid counterparts. Whether you’re searching for an intense lip color that applies as brightly on your lips as it looks in the tube or are simply on the hunt for a shade that seriously won’t budge, give a liquid lipstick a try. Here are two Misty and I swear by.



My all-time favorite liquid lipstick is Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick ($18). My favorite colors are Anna Nicole (a bright orangey-red), Redrum (the perfect classic red color) and Unicorn Blood (a dark brownish red). Each packs a ton of pigment and stays on longer than any other lipstick I’ve used. I’ve worn this stuff for 12+ hours at SXSW (in the Texas heat!) without having to do a single touchup. The colors are always super fierce, have a totally matte finish and won’t overdry your lips. If someone asks me what my favorite lipstick is, I always tell them these.



“I love Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick ($21). It goes on so smoothly, is light on the lips and doesn’t feel dry like most liquid lipsticks. The colors are all awesome and last for an extra long time. This stuff never feels cakey, and I absolutely love using it for photoshoots, on my bridal clients and on myself!”
