“Dussehra” is an Indian festival. Today, on this very auspicious day, I wish you all a very happy “Dussehra” or “Vijayadashami”. May God take all your worries, pain & sorrow away and bestow you with a prosperous happy & healthy life.
Today, I started my day watching a motivational youtube video of Shri. Gaurgopaldas and I thought sharing with you guys. I like when he said,
“Great personalities are not born in the maternity ward but created by choice.”
I always get very excited when I know my next post is going to be the topic I really love from the bottom of my heart is Lipsticks. So without further ado let’s jump into it.
Smashbox’s ‘Always On Liquid Lipstick’ Bawse, Out Loud & Baja Bound
A liquid matte lipstick infused with primer oil complex. A non-drying formula that is so opaque and insanely pigmented. A matte finish which so comfortable on lips and waterproof. On top of it, it has a list of huge fan followers. It is a “Cruelty-free” brand. The price is $24 (USD).
What I really think about these liquid lipsticks.
Bawse – It is a beautiful, gorgeous, and “must-have” deep red! Be ready for that ‘red carpet’ look…Yes! I must say, after trying Bawse my obsession for ‘Mac ruby woo’ has lessened for some reason. I would suggest people who are into Reds and haven’t tried this one…please go and grab ‘BAWSE’! It will never disappoint you. Such a universally flattering red shade and will suit all skin tones.
Basically, When I tried to compare it with Mac ‘ruby woo’, I could see that ‘Bawse’ is the winner! Although Smashbox is pricey and has earned its perks by offering an excellent color pay off. One swipe is fully packed with intense color, so lightweight and flawless.
OUT LOUD – A deep orange shade and I never ever thought that this shade would be the best discovery of my life ……. I don’t know why it took me so long to get my hands on this liquid lipstick. Omg! when I first tried it on my lips I was like…Huhh! where was I this whole time before the pandemic…And now since I have found this gorgeous shade…I have to wear a mask every time I step outside the house. However, I am happy that finally I got into orange and not just limited to pink, coral, fuscia ‘n’ reds etc,.
Such a pretty burnt orange so opaque and lightweight with the beautiful color pay off. This shade is for all my beauties who are thinking to invest in some different shades. It is definitely going to suit you irrespective of different skin tones. Again this is a matte formula but not over-drying.
BAJA BOUND – A pink coral shade that is bright yet gives a very soft look. Recently I have updated my profile picture on WordPress there I am wearing this shade. As per my opinion, it’s not that unique shade and I am definitely not going to recommend it unless you want to spend $24(USD) on it. Being said that, NYX soft matte liquid lipsticks have a wide array of color collections and one particular shade “Antwerp” is similar (but not same) to this shade. Luckily, I have been using it for years so I know it is irreplaceable.
Anyway, Let’s come back to Baja Bound. Again, it is the same lightweight matte formula. Super opaque with excellent color pay off. But guys, I think this shade will look beautiful on light to medium skin tone and my beauties between tan to deeper skin tone, it may wash you out. But as I always say that there are no strict rules for wearing make so suit yourself and feel free to try it.
My final thoughts !
The formula is quite thick & matte once dry so dry/chapped lips beware!. Please exfoliate and prep-prime before application or else, it may settle into fine lines and end up looking like “Zombie’s lips”..ha ha ha !!!
These liquid lipsticks are best if planning to wear often (but not occasionally) in order to utilize the product as much as possible. Else it might end up getting dry or cloggy in a container and then you won’t be able to use it anymore. The game is over!
Seems, these are long-lasting, waterproof, and stays put for pretty much considerable time but not sure if it will survive throughout the day. A quick touch up might be needed.
My most recommendable color is ‘BAWSE’.
Pigmented lips like mine. These lippies are boon for us! Grab any color you like!
So yes! I would recommend it to my friend and family to buy specific/selected shades!
Please share your thoughts n comments and let me know if you like matte liquid lipsticks too!
