Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage for a while now, with more and more brands trying to deliver the ultimate best liquid lipstick that beats them all. Among so many lipsticks and brands, however, what are the actual best liquid lipsticks we should try?
After a thorough research, we managed to find 15 of the best liquid lipsticks anyone should keep in their purses all summer long and, possibly, in fall and winter, too. We selected them while keeping these 3 things in mind:
• Liquid Lipsticks Only Need One Coat
Unless you purposely want to achieve a more dramatic look, liquid lipsticks only need one coat. If not, their formula is definitely to be improved.
• Good Liquid Lipsticks Won’t Slide Down When the Temperature Rises
Always look for the best formula especially during summertime, when the temperatures rise, and anything that is “liquid” usually gets even more dissolvable.
• Good Liquid Lipsticks Do Not Get Off Easily
Liquid lipsticks are hard to apply and, once they are on, you want them to be super long lasting. For this reason, if you just found a liquid lipstick that gets off easily with just a quick wipe of a makeup remover cloth, good chances are it won’t stay on your lips that long during the day.
So keeping these three tips for choosing the best liquid lipstick in mind, here we introduce 15 of the best liquid lipsticks that deliver the right color and stay on without bleeding the entire day!
1. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour
Available in a plethora of shades, MAC’s Retro liquid lipstick features a classic texture and a matte finish that just goes along with any makeup look of the day. You can find yours at Nordstrom!
2. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
When it comes to liquid lipsticks, we all know Kat Von D is the beauty brand to go for. The Everlasting liquid lipstick line features, needless to say, extremely long-wear textures, and highly pigmented shades that are impossible to resist. Head over to Sephora to get yours!
3. NARS Velvet Lip Glide
If you are looking for the perfect red shade of liquid lipstick, NARS’ Velvet Lip Glide has you covered. Pigmented and with the smoothest liquid-suede finish, NARS’ Velvet lipstick “glides on like a gloss, cloaks like a lipstick and feels like nothing else”. You can prove NARS right buying yours at Nordstrom.
4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick
Is it possible to get a lightweight comfort and a full coverage all at once, when it comes to liquid lipsticks? While the answer was “no” a few years ago, many beauty brands have upgraded and improved their formulas, giving us the best combination of texture and color in any liquid lipstick. Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks are exactly like that, and are all available at Sephora.
5. Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick
A brand new creamy and matte, color-rich formula is Too Faced’s way to charm us with its new, long-wear matte liquid lipsticks, which easily glide onto lips like glosses but dry to the most matte, opaque finish everyone covets. You can find them at Sephora!

Like many other liquid lipsticks on this list, you can find them at Sephora, too.
