The liquid lipstick is the new 2-in-1 product has been starting to dominate the lip sections in both drugstores and high-end beauty stores. Liquid lipsticks are essentially highly pigmented lipglosses, so they are often as opaque as a standard lipstick. Some of the reasons for why liquid lipsticks have been getting a lot of hype is not only because of their high pigmentation, but also because they are not drying and have a glossy finish: two elements not typically found in lipstick.
Liquid lipsticks have actually been around around for a couple years, such as the Rimmel Apocalips lip color and the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar. Recently, however, liquid lipsticks have become a growing trend, with many brands also releasing their own version of the lipgloss, such as Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, and Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick Lips. Other brands that have liquid lipsticks also include Revlon, Hourglass, and Shiseido.
I personally think that the liquid lipstick trend is a great trend for those who have been looking for a lipstick and lipgloss in one product. I don't own any liquid lipsticks, however, I starting to consider trying them, because of their awesome pigmentation and easy applicators. I also think that liquid lipsticks would be great during the holiday season when you want to rock a glossy red lip!
