A Tom Tom Guide To: Liquid Lipsticks


Teenagers have so much to do throughout the school day, leaving no time to reapply. These four different lipstick brands were worn for the same amount of time and each went through three meals all for the sake of finding the longest lasting lipsticks.

“I keep redoing it and fixing it throughout the day,” sophomore Allison Hoffelder said, when talking about makeup. Find out which products will leave smudged lips or perfect precision.

NYX Lip Lingerie

The Lip Lingerie is one of NYX’s many lipstick products, but this line focuses on nude shades, for all skin tones, for the price of seven dollars. It is a matte liquid lipstick that goes on very smoothly. It can be slightly streaky and may need a few layers to achieve its maximum pigment, which may cause lips to feel cakey. At the end of the day, the lipstick was almost all gone and a slight residue was left. Since they are all natural colors, most can get away with not reapplying. For being a “drugstore brand,” it did a decent job, but make sure to keep the product close by throughout the day.

“I do like it but it’s not as long-lasting as others I have tried, it does not dry down all the way, in my opinion, and [it] wears off somewhat fast,” junior Ashly Ring said after trying the product.

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipstick 

Too Faced provides many different lines within their liquified lipsticks including metallic shades, matte and their chocolate line which is infused with cocoa powder. This product feels extremely comfortable and light. It doesn’t dry out and crack lips like many other matte brands do, but it never seemed to fully dry down.  At the end of the day, the product was very faint and almost completely faded. It is an extremely nice product with beautiful colors, but not worth the high price of $21.

Kylie Lip Kit

Kylie Lip Kits have become extremely popular because of the brand creator, Kylie Jenner, but are they really worth the price of $17? The product went on very smoothly and pigmented, however left my lips looking extremely dry and flakey, which was not comfortable or attractive. The lipstick started to fade in the center of the lip, but other than that small touch-up, it stayed on effectively.

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick

These lipsticks come in a wide variety of colors, and even though they are a high-end brand, the product is well worth the money. You don’t need much product when applying and it feels lightweight on the skin. Throughout the day it wore extremely well and looked almost the exact same at the end of the day as it did when first applied.

Kat Von D Beauty Liquid Lipstick is the clear winner for its indestructible formula that keeps lips looking perfect all day without feeling too dry or cakey. The high price of $20 may seem ridiculous for a lipstick, but this is money well spent for its pigmentation, comfort and long-lasting quality.
