Given the traction that matte liquid lipsticks have gained in the last couple of years, it is refreshing to see more brands coming out with non-drying varieties that don't leave you with chapped lips. Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks are non-drying, non-transferable, and boast a velvety-smooth texture. I was able to get through a meal without any transfer onto my fork or glass, and I get nearly a full day of wear without needing to touch up.
The two shades that I have been testing, Rare Nebbiolo and Desert Mirage, glide across the lips effortlessly, deposit color evenly, and they neither bleed, nor settle into lip lines Furthermore, despite the matte finish, these two lipsticks not only do not dry out the lips, but I actually find that my lips are mildly conditioned after use. If, however, you have very dry lips, you might want to apply a touch of lip balm underneath these liquid lipsticks.
It is worthy to note that this formula includes a lot of nourishing, healthy antioxidant-rich skincare ingredients– making them healthier lipsticks.
Highlight Cosmetics has 10 shades available, and they come in two distinct finishes: a matte finish and a metallic matte texture, and I selected two of the metallic mattes. They have no detectable scent or flavor, and therefore should not pose a problem for anyone with fragrance sensitivities.
Rare Nebbiolo is a gorgeous metallic berry-kissed burgundy.
Desert Mirage is a stunning golden copper nude.
Highly pigmented moisturizing liquid lipstick. Soft velvet feel that lasts the whole day on your lips. You can achieve the opaque pigment you want with only one coat and the best part is that it will not smear while you eat, drink or as temperature rises. Apply once and you are good to go!
The natural infusion of Turmeric, Green Tea, White Tea, Sea Kelp, and a Benefit Peptide will give your lips a soft, moist, and smooth finish.
