These Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks are the golden shiny unicorn of all of my US purchases. I strolled into Las Vegas Macy's beauty department and stumbled across a real life counter with everything and actually had to pinch myself that there were liquid lipsticks there. As a Brit, you know about these lipsticks, you've heard the tales, seen the instagram pictures but never been able to easily get your hands on them. This was my time and I couldn't of been more excited. You can tell by this paragraph what a huge experience Beauty shopping is for me, can't you?

The first one I picked up was Blush, the candy pink shade. I knew this was one I wanted since I'd seen the company President Claudia/Norvina wear this in an instagram photo, I didn't even swatch I just grabbed. It was the last one and nobody was taking this from me! I was just going to buy one but in true Shiana form, I had to get a red as well. I went for Candy Apple and I have to say that this is not only my favourite one of the three, but my favourite red lipstick that I own. there is something truly unque about Candy Apple in that it has really subtle gold pigment running through it which really catches the eye when its on your lips. It makes them look fuller and like a fairy-tale candy apple - hence the name. If there is one you pick up when you go to the state, get this one. It different to anything I own and I'm completely in love. The next one I picked up was the cult classic shade, Pure Hollywood. I do like the colour buts its definitely a summer nude or something to highlight for me, as it looks a bit too ashy on my complexion.

As for the formula its very consistent throughout the shades that I have. Sometimes with liquid lipsticks formula can vastly differ when it comes to shades. For example the Sephora lip creams. The red I have is incredibly long wearing but slightly drying, and the pink I have isn't as long wearing but has more moisture. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks are what they say they are. they go on like your typical lipstick, think a Mac cremesheen lipstick, and dry down to a perfect matte finish. Once they are on they don't budge either, but they do come off with cleanser (also another typical flaw of liquid lipsticks is that they dry down and never come off!)

All in all, if you are going to spend money on a liquid lip, let it be the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks. They are everything I hoped they would be. I can now understand why this brand is everywhere. Their products are truly excellent and it makes me excited to see what they will bring out in the future!

Whats your favourite liquid lipstick?
