They’ve finally arrived!! *Does a happy dance*
Well firstly, there are so many different liquid lip products on the market so how do you know which is the right one to buy or whether it’s really worth the money?
There are many that are either too shiny (high chances of smudging) even though the brands claim a matte finish or on the other hand, extremely matte that dry out your lips making it look like the craters of the moon (not sexy). Whereas Bobbi Brown’s liquid artsticks have exactly the right balance of a semi-matte finish but keep your lips hydrated at the same time.
They are very long-wearing and stay on evenly. Yesterday I applied the artstick around 9am, I ate breakfast, lunch and in between licked my lips a few times (bad habit)… By the time it got to 5pm, the colour was still on my lips like a very pretty stain. I could have kept it as it was but since I was heading out for dinner, I decided to reapply. Again, I had dinner and cocktails and by the time I got home around 10pm, it was still on my lips. Winner!
How to apply? Gently squeeze the tube (gently being the key word) and then apply the small blob of product on the centre of your lip. Release the tube and use the applicator to blend the product onto the rest of your lips. Use the thinnest part of the tip to line your lips like a lip liner.
I love the formula as it’s very light and smooth. There are 16 relevant shades on offer and the clear squeezy application tube not only makes it easy to apply but you can also see how much product you have left… gives you enough time to purchase your next one 😉
It’s so versatile as you can either make a bold statement due to the brilliant pigments or dab a small amount to create a more stain-like effect.
Though you could purchase online, the colours are different online to how they are in real life. Also how they look in the tube, on the back of your hand and on your actual lips are very different. Therefore I’d strongly recommend going into your local Bobbi store and booking ahead to avoid disappointment.
Here are swatches of the 14 shades I played with yesterday:
They’re decently priced at £21.50. Get yours now because they sell out!
