Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Swatches + Pics

When Anastasia Beverly Hills released the new Liquid Lipsticks on her website, I had to hop on it! I ordered 4 of the 20 new shades available. First impressions, they remind me of the Stila All Day Liquid Lipsticks and the Sephora Cream Lip Stains. They have the same creamy texture, opaque coverage, and matte finish. I purchased:

“Pure Hollywood” – nude beige pink
“Sweet Talker” – watermelon pink
“Bloodline” – crimson
“Potion” – deep eggplant

I’m sure a lot of women of color are curious about how these lipsticks will look on them. So for skin tone reference, I am a MAC NC44 (NC45 in the summer), NARS Tahoe, MUFE HD #170.

I initially applied “Pure Hollywood” alone, but it was giving me powdered donut vibes (we all know that “look”), so I reapplied it with a lip liner which makes it wearable for my tastes. It’s a really pretty nude, and paired with MAC Spice lip liner, I find it gorgeous. I preferred to use a lip liner with “Sweet Talker” as well. While it didn’t give the powdered donut look, the color is borderline neon-ish on my skin, so I used MAC Beet lip liner along with it. Both “Bloodline” and “Potion” did not require lip liner for me to wear.

These were launched January 7 on both Anastasia Beverly Hills website and Macy’s website. They will be available in all Macy’s (the Impulse section) stores in February.
