FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Anastasia Beverly hills Liquid Lipsticks + Swatch

Hi!, this is my first post and hopefully i’ve done it the right way. I’m new to blogging and I will learn along the way.I’m not great at descriptions but I will try my best.I just got time to post since i had my mid terms and was busy and just got around to it now.

I got these 2 beautiful products from Anastasia, and i’ve never owned any expensive makeup since I usually can’t afford them. I got these 2 for my birthday and I haven’t worn them on my lips, thats why this will just be a first glance impression. I was appalled when I  saw these colours since they’re extremely beautiful

On the website, they cost about $20/ £13 each . Unfortunately, my parents got me these for around $30 or PKR 3000 each which become expensive here.they have a wide range of colours and If you are interested in them, the  link is http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/makeup/lips/liquid-lipstick.html

  • PACKAGING:

The packaging itself is very sleek and elegant.the cap is silver while just underneath there is a gorgeous rose gold wrapping which I love.While holding it, it feels sturdy and a little heavy, which is good because it gives it a more expensive feel. At the bottom there is the name of the shade of lipstick on a black sticker, which is always handy for reference and on the tube itself is the brand’s name and the logo which looks stunning

the applicator is not a complete rounded tip, but it’s angled giving you a easier and more controlled application.

  • SWATCH +FORMULA IMPRESSION:

the lipsticks dry matte, and look pretty pigmented. the colour ‘pure hollywood’ is a nude colour, while the ‘electric coral’ is a cherry red colour  with a little bit of pink undertone (correct me if i’m wrong, i’m not good at this).

Although I did not put this on my lips, my mother tried it on hers and unfortunately, I did not get a picture but she absolutely loved it. It came on perfectly pigmented on a first swipe and dried quickly.She did not leave it on though, so I apologise that I cannot state if the lasting power is good.However, I thought it was worth noting that after the swatch, I tried washing it off and it was pretty stubborn. It came off after a lot of scrubbing so i’m hoping it stays on the lips.

the consistency of the formula is not too thin or thick, but it is equally balanced and I do personally think that it is a great consistency.

 

thank you for your patience and I hope you liked it. I hope you have a wonderful day and if you have any suggestions for me, i’m more than happy to listen to them. 🙂
