Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick - Madison and Potion

One of my friends had recommended me Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks. As I was in New York in July, I decided to get a load of products you can't find over here in the UK, Anastasia Beverly Hills being one of them. When I was in Sephora I decided to check out the Liquid Lipsticks and found there were an amazing color range to choose from. There was every color you could want from natural to dramatic. The colors I went for were Madison (Vibrant Plum Magenta) and Potion (Deep Aubergine). These were $20 each.



I just love these sorts of colors as they stand out and go nicely with a dramatic look. Both lipsticks come with one of those doe foot applicators that allow for easy application. I much prefer these ones over those brush applicators that some brands have. The Kylie Jenner lip kits have gotten a really bad name because the hairs on the brush applicator started to split. When you are paying $20 or more for a lipstick you expect the applicator to be great quality.

The pigment in these ones is insane, you don't need to use a lot to get full color on your lips. You could get away with one coat, but I am quite fussy, so I went and applied two coats to my lips. 

Drying time is really quick. Once dry, the color was a matte finish and stayed on all day without any need to reapply. My lips do get quite dry and these didn't dry them out once.

Out of the two I don't really have a favorite as they both were amazing.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture - 52

When I was in New York, I stopped by the YSL counter in Bergdorf Goodman and got one of their Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks. I went for the color 52 which is also called Rosy Coral. I don't have many coral lipsticks, so this one was a great one to have in my collection. This was $37.00

This one has a really nice creamy texture to it and has a fab amount of pigment in it. You don't need a lot to get the color to show up and once on it stays on and doesn't really need reapplying.

Coral is such a great color too. I'm really glad I got this color for my collection as I could do with more corals. I just love this lipstick on and is a great one for the summer, although it could be worn in the winter too.
