When life gives you Sephora gift cards, you must shop. No but for real, shout out to all my friends who hooked me up with gift cards for my birthday. You guys rock. Moving on.... I haven't really purchased any new high-end makeup in a while. Minus my beauty "ride or dies" that are always in full rotation. When I first started blogging, I ran out and bought everything- I mean EVERYTHING that was on trend. Anything that was mentioned in popular youtube videos or blogs, I purchased it. I then realized that if I wanted to eat, I couldn't do that. So needless to say, I've slowed down and basically pumped my brakes on buying high-end makeup.
Just like any beauty lover, I'm lucky enough to have friends that recognize my addiction to makeup and support it. I mean, what better addiction is there in this world? The answer is nothing my friends. Nothing. When I round up my Sephora gift cards, I normally get my necessities (moisturizers and such). This time, I decided to say "screw it! I'm getting lipsticks!". There has been a few on my mind that I've been eyeing up to review. The first one on that long list is the social media reigning queen, Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick.
So here it is guys, my 100% honest review.
I picked out the color "Craft" because I thought it was the perfect transitioning fall color. The first day I wore it to work, I received so many compliments. The color is gorgeous. The lasting power on this liquid lipstick is pretty impressive also. I didn't have to reapply till about 3 and 1/2 hours into my day- and that was after my morning latte, breakfast and some water here and there. The line around my lips stayed pretty intact and was extremely hard to remove. Overall for color and staying power I give this product an 8. My only real issue was that the formula dried out my lips to the point that I felt it was sucking out all the moisture in my body. No joke. My lips felt dry like that through-out the day. I give the formula a 2- I know, I feel terrible saying that but I have to be honest.
I LOVE trying out new beauty products and it's fun to see how I feel about things that others rave about or even hate on. Hopefully you liked my review! Until next time.........
