Beauty: Best Liquid Lipsticks for Conventions!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Since Holiday Matsuri is coming up in less than two months, I feel like doing an awesome beauty post!

Best Liquid Lipsticks for Conventions!

As makeup wearers in the convention community, there are times where we have a hard time finding that moment to re-apply our lipstick even with panels where can’t get that time to re-apply if we are hosting or late to show up after sleeping in from a long night of partying and panels! So, with MegaCon, I noticed that wearing a liquid lipstick is a lot better because they stay on for a very long time and a lot of cpmpanies in both high end and drugstore have been getting on the liquid lipstick train both in matte and mettllics, especially in time for the holidays! Since I wore a liquid ipstick, why not do a post of the best brands for anyone who needs an awesome lip and being comfortable too!

First, a Lip Primer Recommendation: I know a lot of people do have the problems of their liquid lipstick running all over their lips like I had with the Colour Pop ones and all thanks to Andrea Matalano, she says that the E. L. F. Lip Primer and Plumper is the way to go! I never heard about a lip primer until she mentioned it in her video and I do have the E. L. F. one and waiting for two more to appear on my doorstep with other items from Ulta, but other brands do have their own lip primers which NYX makes one too if you don’t want to get the E. L. F. one. People did complain about the E. L. F. one that the plumping side does sting which I did cecounter that before which my lips did get used to it. You essentially put on the primer side first and then the plumper side which you can smell very easily or you can put the plumper on top of the lipstick for added plumping. Does it work? Yes it does! It kept on all of my liquid lipsticks on and they stay pretty well too. I suggest getting a lip primer because it will save the bleeding and it is easy to carry as well.

Now for the lipsticks:

Disclaimer: These products are based on the love from the lead writer so please respect her choices!

1. Ofra Liquid Lipsticks: First off is the Ofra Liquid Lipsticks! I love these especially with the smell. They glide on very smoothly and when dried down they stay put! I only re-apply one or two times because of how well they stay and even with the lip primer they do stay on a lot better. These retail for $17.50 each and you have a wide range of colors from nude to bolds and even metallics. You can get Ofra through Ulta on their website and I would say it is a good thing since you can get points from buying these!
2. Colour Pop Matte Lipsticks: Before the lip primer, I hated how these ran all over my lips but with a lip primer these do stay put! These are very affordable and you can get a lot of colors as well. They around the $6 range and they do take a week to come in. Good news that select colors will be carried at Sephora which would be in time for December.
3. Black Moon Cosmetics: I tried this out all thanks to Vivi getting me an early birthday gift, a very early one, and that is a liquid lipstick from Black Moon Cosmetics in Eternal. I wore this during MegaCon, well two days out of the four, and it did not budge at all, even when I asked people questions! I did have to put on once after eating my pb&j sandwich. Still, that thing stays very well even on top of lip primer. This company does a wide range of colors from matte to metallic and even bold if you want to do a goth cosplay. These are around $18 each!
4. Kt Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks: Next is up Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick range! I thank Vivi getting into this line too and I only have two in Echo, which is a navy blue, and Wolf, which is ddeep gunmetal. Even though these do stay put but they are pretty drying which I suggest using not only the lip primer but also a lip balm before the primer. I always use lip balms, especially my all time Holy Grail one and that is LipSmackers, and then do the primer afterwards and then the lipstick. A head’s up, for the color Witches from what I hear, best to use a black lip liner or eye liner to line the lips to make it more oopaque. Reason why I mention these besides the downside of the dryness and needing a liner for Witches is because there is a wide range of shades to choose from! Heck, one shade is a best seller that sells out and that is Lolita and Lolita 2! (there is even a blush…) You can either go nude or natural and classic red or even bold for certain cosplays. And again they do stay on even while eating. These are $21 from what I remembered buying Echo and Wolf and you can get these from Sephora and the Kat Von D Cosmetics website! If you need a gift suggestion, there is a set for holiday for friends!
5. Rimmel Provacalips: These liquid lipsticks are amazing! I tend to wear one with my cosplay and that is a very, vampy purple color. It is the RImmel Provacalips collection! It is a two in one where you have the lip color on one side and then the top coat to seal it in for the day. This does stay put all day and it doesn’t budge. If you saw my interview videos as my ice Trainer Cosplay my lip color was there every video! These around $6 or $7 depending where you go! I may have to try the only one I have which is a berry one on top of my primer because I had these before the primer came out.
6. NYX Lip Lingerie: This list wouldn’t exist without at least one NYX product and that is their Lip Lingerie liquid lipstick line! I have the colors in Corsette and Embellishment which are nude colors among them and they feel great! Yes, they might be drying but I do use my lip primer underneath and they aren’t as bad. They do stay pretty well on top of the primer too which I highly suggest to do that before using these. They are in the $7 range depending on where you are whether it is Target or Ulta or even if you have in town and that is a NYX store! We have one in Orlando at the Milennia mMall and the nice thing is if you guys have the NYX app or shop at the store and sign up for their MakeUp Crew membership you can get points. Goes the same with the NYX website. Giving you guys that tidbit in case if you didn’t know.
7. L’Oreal Infolluble Liquid Lipsticks: Now another drugstore choice and that is from L’Oreal! I heard about these all thanks to Casey Holmes and you know me and my kitty curiosity I had to try! I decided to get some on Ulta and got them in the colors Kitten Paw and Petal Potion and these are amazing! They are lightweight and they don’t budge! They do transfer before drying down matte but just stay on for 18 hours which it claims. I think I rarely had to re-apply and I think these would be perfect for a convention because of how comfortable they are and do dry into place. I can see why people bought out one color when I was buying two of them. These are $7 and change at WalMart and Target and $9.99 at Ulta.
8. Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick: Another liquid lipstick from Rimmel and that is their Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick formula which I just tried! I remembered seeing was it Vii Dreamcatcher reviewing these on her channel and at first she said they were patchy which made me a bit skeptical but all thanks to Shop Kick having it as a Kick Bait item I decided why not give it a try. There are times where makeup works for some people and other products don’t and these worked out a lot especially with the primer. I do have to double dip, as in put one coat then put another on both top and bottom lips and then do the tissue and it stays! IT STAYS! I only had to re-apply once and that is it! Great thing is that you not only get your usual pinks and nudes but you do get a vampy purple, a blue, a black, and if I remembered a grey as well so anyone who wants to go beyond your normal colors and try something bold then RImmel is your brand with this line. I have Blue Iris and Pink Blink which someone in a review said the Blue Iris was patchy. I did mention how the lip primer helps and it did help with the patchiness. These are in the $5 range and you can get them at Target, Ulta, and WalMart!
9. Wet N Wild Color Icon Liquid Cat Suit: The final liquid lipstick best for conventions is the Wet N Wild Ciquid Cat Suit! THESE ARE AMAZING! Wet N Wild first released these at the beginning of this year and when I heard about them I had to try them out. These stay put very well except Goth TOpic always ran all over but hoping it stays put on my lips with the primer. I do have Goth Topic, Rebel Rose which I finally found after two months of looking for it, Gimme Mocha, and all of the Midnight Mermaid ones which happens to be Sea Seduction, Coral Crown, and a red one and a green one. I will be having the green one on hand during Holiday Matsuri for a very festive look for Sunday in my own way. Plus, these are pretty lightweight on the lips which I feel like I am not wearing any liquid lipstick at all once it is set. These are very affordable in the $4 range. I did hear they released Halloween colors but I didn’t look at the moment. Sorry but if you have the Halloween ones, awesome! Still, a great item to get and you can get these at Walgreens, Ulta’s website, and Wet N Wild’s website. I think you can also get them at Walmart since they did carry the Fantasymakers stuff.
Well, that is it for this post! I would put a tenth one but at the moment I am waiting on the new Maybelline Matte Metallics one I picked on Ulta. I haven’t tried the nnw Liquid Suede metallics from NYX yet, it will be a bit for those. I will update on Twitter with the Maybelline one in how well that one goes! So in the meantime, I will be doing my September and October favorites in the next few days so stay tuned guys! Also, donate to our Patreon and Go Fund Me!
