The Best Liquid Lipsticks, According to Our EditorsJuly 27, 2021
Liquid lipsticks have come a long way. While we once had them pegged as tricky to apply and drying on our skin, they’ve gotten some major upgrades in the past few years. Liquid lippies are now our go-to for getting a smooth, matte finish and color that lasts all day long. Plus, so many liquid lipsticks now have a comfortable, barely-there feel that gives your lips an extra dose of hydration. Whether you’re searching for an affordable, drugstore option or a high-end splurge in the perfect shade, we’re sharing our favorite liquid lipsticks, ahead. And spoiler alert, you’ll want them all.
This liquid lippie has earned a permanent spot in our makeup bags thanks to the totally budge-proof formula that feels completely weightless. The best part is that it’s available in 46 gorgeous shades so you can find a color to go with every mood.
A cross between a lip stain and a liquid lipstick, this non-drying formula is infused with rose extract to keep lips super soft. The patented petal-shaped brush holds the optimal amount of product to ensure a smooth application that still packs a bold punch of pigment in a single swipe.
This high-shine lip lacquer delivers intense pigment with a glossy finish. The super soft, silky formula delivers 10 hours of hydration, but our favorite thing about this lippie is the mess-free, heart-shaped applicator that guarantees a precise application every single time.
This drugstore option offers up to 16 hours of wear that is completely kiss-, drink- and food-proof. The pro-sculpt applicator helps to shape, define and add dimension to the lips so you have a full-coverage matte finish with every wear.
Matte liquid lipsticks tend to make lips feel dry, but this long-lasting option feels soft and comfortable, even after 16 hours. The flexible, lightweight formula molds to your lips and acts as a second skin so the color doesn’t bleed, crack or fade.
Luxury at it’s finest, this liquid lipstick should be in everyone’s collection. The highly pigmented stain seamlessly glides onto lips with just one stroke leaving a rich, creamy color that lasts from morning to night.
Achieve a just-kissed look with this lightweight liquid-cream hybrid. The creamy, mousse-like formula delivers a blurred-out flush of color with a satin finish that keeps lips hydrated and smooth throughout the day.
