If you haven’t heard of Kylie Jenner‘s Lip Kit, you’ve pretty much been living under a rock. The lip liner and liquid matte lipstick duo formulated by the star in three shades – a pink, nude and a dark brown – were basically sold out online faster than you could actually say “Kylie Jenner”. Yep, under a few seconds! I’ve personally undergone the trauma that was getting it all the way to my cart, and then having the website greet me with a “Sold Out!” message as I proceeded to checkout. *sigh* While I’m desperately waiting for that restock in the new pink shade, Posie K, here are a few liquid matte ranges that I’ve been using to pacify myself during this long tenure of three months. Long-lasting, perfectly powder matte and more colours than you can ever imagine!
1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams
Budgeted, creamy and drying off to a matte texture, this range comes in over twenty colours that are named after cities. Go bold with that sexy siren vibe or keep it cool with nudes, this collection has something to love for every lipstick addict.
2. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
You might have heard about Kat Von D, the celebrity tattoo artist who took the beauty world by storm with her product range. This liquid matte range is one of the most bestselling products across the globe, especially in the shade Lolita. Need we say more?
3. Lime Crime Velvetines
If you’re looking for a velvety texture that stays on all day, even after three to four drinks, this one should be your go-to! With daring shades like marsala and even black and blue for those who want to go the Rihanna way, this prettily packaged product is more than we could ever ask for. Wicked gives you the perfect maroon while Suedeberry is the pinkish red that dreams are made of!
4. NYX Liquid Suede
Isn’t just the sound of this enough to make you want to get your hands on it? In subtle shades that dry off to that perfect velvety finish, this newly launched product is the matte lover’s dream.
5. Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams
We all have those times where we’re a little low on the moolah, and we need a lippy that looks a lot richer than it costs. This one fits in the budget just right and comes in some amazing natural shades. Try shade 17A for a pink that’s fab for everyday use.
6. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick
We’re in eager anticipation for this collection to hit stores in India, but it released about a month back in the states and the reviews have been even better than MAC’s regular matte lipsticks, which I personally bet my life on. Been swiping this one on *in my dreams* and we’re pretty sure the range of colours will help us get over Posie K, incase the whole stockout situation repeats itself.
While some of these brands might not be available in India, you can always check online or at your local beauty store that stocks imported goods! 🙂
