Whether bold bright or nude, lips are big right now and the trend at the moment is matte (preferably in liquid form). Instagram is literally blowing up with Liquid Lipsticks and I can understand why. For years I’ve been transforming my cream lippies into more fluid versions of themselves because liquid products always give you a cleaner, sharper, smoother edge.
Caitlin have just launched a pretty solid range of 12 matte liquid lipsticks, Extreme Matte Tints. The colours range from nudes to bright reds and pinks. They give a super crisp edge on your lip-line and after about a minute the texture dries velvety matte, totally smudge proof and waterproof.
I tested out the shade 05 'Exhibitionist' (pictured above) and I was really impressed. It goes on incredibly smooth and creamy (not sticky) but dries like a liquid liner for your eyes. I tested by smudging the swatch of colour with my hand and literally no transfer at all. And to take it off my arm soap and water barely made it budge, I needed makeup remover. The doe foot applicator makes it really easy to apply and you can get a pretty impressive edge with that alone. Or if you're a perfectionist like me you can still use the colour with a lipbrush or an angle brush for a flawless editorial edge to your lipstick.
Ideal for those of you wanting to try a bold lip and kick your makeup look up a notch this season, or in fact for any time when you just need your lipstick to stay put all day.
