Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage for what feels like the longest time. At first, only 1 or 2 companies offered the ultra-pigmented liquids that stuck to your lips like glue and dried down to a matte finish but over time those numbers have exploded and now you are more likely to find a company that doesn’t have their own version.
Formulas have improved, colour ranges have expanded and wear times have gotten longer but I have yet to find a formula that truly felt comfortable on the lips.
Make Up For Ever seemed to take a little bit longer than the rest of the beauty industry to jump on board the liquid lip bandwagon and now we know why. All truly great things take time!
It seems that they took that bit of extra time to create the first TRULY comfortable liquid lipstick that doesn’t sacrifice performance or wear. Not only that but they created the perfect product to prep the lips for an even better experience.
The Ultra HD Lip Booster Hydra-Plump Serum ($29 CAD/$23 USD) is a hydrating lip serum that instantly preps and nourishes the lips for the application of any product. It can be used alone or underneath to smooth over lines and texture, plump gently and hydrate deep down. Containing Loofah Oil and Hyaluronic Acid, it glides on with a custom cushioned applicator and absorbs quickly leaving a non-sticky satin finish.
They have a unique formula that somehow seems to nail every single aspect without sacrificing another. They have concentrated pigments that provide seriously saturated colour payoff with full opacity in one swipe and an ultra-matte (yet not desert dry) finish.
The formula contains beeswax and avocado oil to nourish and protect the lips while keeping the liquid itself in place. It glides over the lips coating them in a weightless veil of colour but protects the skin underneath from all damage, drying or irritation.
The Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks have a precise wand that makes application a breeze. It smooths over the surface of the lips, defining every peak and valley and depositing the perfect amount of colour.
So far, there are only 6 shades in the collection (101 Cream Beige, 103 Warm Beige, 105 Rosewood, 107 Neutral Beige, 109 Praline & 203 Cold Pink) but they are all stunning! They are the perfect neutrals that you can rock on any day, at any time, in any place.

To top it all off, the Artist Lipsticks have incredible wear power that is said to be up to 20 hours. Personally, I have worn them for 12 hour days, eaten meals, enjoyed many coffees and at the end of the day, my lips look just as good as they did in the morning.
To make your liquid lipstick last all day long and to ensure it feels good on the lips, try the Ultra HD Lip Booster and then top it with the lipstick of your choice. Apply a liberal amount and wait for it to absorb (just a few seconds) before applying your lipstick. Then enjoy a day of perfect looking lips without any of the dryness!
