Liquid lipstick in 2018 was (and is!) still a trend we can get behind as we broach into the new year — and we love it not only because it gives us the velvety matte finish of our dreams, but because with each new season, the formulas just keep getting better and better. Ahead, we rounded up our favorite seven liquid lipsticks that we constantly reached for in 2018 — these are the ones we’ll definitely be wearing well into 2019.
Hands down the best liquid lipstick of this year (and probably our favorite of all time) is the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink. Not only is this formula totally budge-free (we’re serious), it comes in so many gorgeous shades and feels extremely comfortable with every wear.
Plushies by Lime Crime is the matte velvet liquid lip that gives you a soft, stained finish in just one coat. We’re also obsessed with this formula because the colors are super unique and complement just about every skin tone.
This Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Lippie is another liquid matte for the books, simply because it has the softest formulation of the bunch. The pigment is super plush, creamy and dries down to bold, long lasting color.
This Matte Cream Lip Stain by Sephora is the most lightweight of the bunch — and literally feels like nothing is on your pout. Thanks to its super soft doe foot applicator, you’ll find this lippie making its way into your daily beauty routine in no time.
YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain is the luxe liquid lipstick that should be a part of every liquid lip collection. This gorgeous lippie has a ton of staying power and comes in a variety of colors and tones, all while leaving the softest, most pigmented matte stain. Seriously, what more could we want?
Another crowd favorite, the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is a great alternative to a regular bullet because it gives you that same finish without the tube. This comes in a ton of colors that complement all skin tones, and will have you wanting more after every application.
An oldie but goodie, the NYX Liquid Suede lipstick will be in our hearts and makeup bags every year. This formula allows for a finish that’s as liquid as velvet but dries down better than any matte lipstick we’ve tried.
