You heard it here first: We truly believe that the sun is setting on one of our favorite makeup products, the matte liquid lippie. In its place, we’re forecasting a new kind of pout — one that’s a whole lot more powdery, soft and stain-like: lip mousse! We love this new type of lip not only because it complements every lip shape and tone, but because it wears really comfortably, too. Ahead, find the five lip mousses we’ll be reaching for this season — and we’d wager to bet you will, too.
We’ve already raved about how much we love this product, so we had to of course put it at the top of our lip mousse list. The new Lo-Fi lip mousse from Urban Decay does just what it promises: stains the lips gently with powerful pigment but allows them to remain super soft and powdery (in a nice way).
If you’re looking for a cloud-like product to apply on your lips, the NYX Professional Makeup Powder Puff Lippie was made for you. It’s super soft to the touch and does an excellent job as providing a ton of color with a small amount of product. Plus, the cushion applicator has us smiling with every application — it’s seriously that soft!
Baby Doll Kiss + Blush by YSL is another mousse favorite — and we love how this product can be used not just on the lips, but on the cheeks, as well. It comes in a myriad of colors (everything from pinks to oranges to berries and transparent), and it looks beautiful on every skin tone.
For those (like us) who will be mourning the liquid lip once it goes out of style, the Julep It’s Whipped Matte Lip Mousse has got you covered. We love how user friendly this lip mousse is and how comfortable it wears throughout the day and into night.
The Color In Liquid Lips Mousse is also a great option if you’re looking for a lip mousse with subtler coverage. This gel-like tint blends nicely into the lips without appearing overly pigmented — and it’s certainly going to be one that we reach for over our liquid lipsticks in the months to come (#sorrynotsorry).
