Matte Red for Spring

|

Happy Spring! This could only mean warmer weather is upon us and of course, nothing makes me more excited.

As a lipstick lover, over the past year I've been trying every liquid lipstick I can get my hands on. Recently Anastasia Beverly Hills sent me a few to try, and ladies, I think we have a winner! The colour is true to the tube, glides on smoothly and instantly mattifies into a beautiful, bold lipstick.

The one thing you need to know about liquid lipsticks is that they are typically a dry formula. I'd recommend applying a lip primer or moisturizing your lips A LOT prior to wearing one, especially if you're expecting it to be on all day. I usually apply mine early morning and do small touch-ups throughout the day because the colour fades sometimes, but the tint does last for quite a while. However, this means that your lips can become really dry and crack, so I definitely exfoliate before going to bed.

Anastasia Beverly Hills has always been known for brows, but the brand has definitely stepped up it's makeup game lately. They've got a line of face and lip products, as well as a full set of stunning eyeshadows that come in beautiful shades and are highly pigmented. You can see the Anastasia eye shadows and liquid lipstick I'm wearing for the look below, but here they are:
