Maybelline Superstay24 liquid lipsticks – review and wear test

maybelline superstay24 liquid lipstick voxbox influenster

Liquid lipsticks have been a huge trend for the past few years and I have been absolutely on each release since. I hate retouching lipstick during the day or showing up at a dinner with red lipstick and end up without any by the end of the evening. Liquid lipsticks have been my answer for the past two years.

Before the trend started, there were a few brands who already had long wearing lipstick formulas and I wrote one of my first ever blog posts on them here if you fancy a read. One of the first liquid lipsticks I ever bought was the Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color in 510 Red Passion. This was my only lipstick for a long time. Funny enough, I have received two of these lipsticks from Influenster to review for you guys. Let’s take a look.

Makeup Stash: Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks review and swatches

gerard cosmetics hydra matte liquid lipstick review swatches
Liquid lipsticks are my love, it’s not a secret. I am a matte lipstick kind of girl mainly because they look gorgeous, last all day and therefore I don’t need to worry about touching up or bleeding. Therefore liquid lipsticks are like the ultimate dream in my book. Among the many brands out there that make them, I have tried four of the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and I want to share here my review and swatches of each shade.

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick Oh Lady review, swatch and all day wear test

mac retro matte liquid lipstick oh lady

You might have noticed a week (or two?) of silence on this blog, but now I’m back! I finally got my doctorate and am now officially an unemployed doctor of philosophy. So now my days will be spent job seeking and of course blogging!
