Oh Bite Beauty, you never cease to amaze me. And in a summer where lipstick has ruled, I’m really happy that you’ve thrown your ring into the liquid lipstick ring because your version is, well, delicious. I’ve been playing with the new Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick for a little while now and there’s a reason why these have become so popular so quickly. Shall we?

“Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick is proof that a high pigment luxurious and nourishing formula is possible with natural ingredients.” – Susanne Langmuir, Founder & Creator of Bite Beauty

Available in 12 shades, ranging from nudes to deep maroon with everything in between, the new liquified lipsticks bring their popular Amuse Bouche lipsticks into liquid form (with new shades). They were designed to be nourishing on the lips, using natural ingredients like coconut oil, monoi butter and citrus flavour, to ensure that the formula glides on the lips smoothly leaving a creamy feel that hydrates during wear. They feel luxurious on the lip, with a really soft touch that doesn’t ever feel heavy or sticky.

The shades are gorgeous and highly pigmented, especially the deeper shades; I love the colour and how rich they are once applied. I do notice that the lighter shades apply a little streaky and need to be blended a little for a smooth finish, but I’ve had no issues with the darker shades. For me, standouts are Chutney (my absolute favourite), Supreme and Marsala.

They apply really creamy and dry to what they call a demi-glaze finish, which means they feel satiny and have a nice hit of shine to them without being overly glossy. I do find that these transfer (especially to my teeth…), with reapplication needed every 3-4 hours to keep the colour up. For longer lasting colour, start with The Lip Pencil in a matching shade.

For me, this summer is quickly becoming the season of the killer lip. Between these and a few other really fantastic launches (which you’ll be seeing in the coming weeks), I’ve been having a hell of a good time playing with new formulas & shades. Today though, we’ll be talking about one of my new faves – Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick ($11.99 CAD).

Maybelline is definitely upping their game by joining in on the liquid lipstick trend, and I’m so happy they did. I’m a big fan of this type of lipstick and am really happy to see a great quality drugstore version, which makes picking up a few different shades a lot more accessible than some of the other versions I love.

I want to kick this review off by talking about the staying power of the Superstay Matte Inks. This was one thing that the brand really stressed when they launched the product, noting that once it’s on it stays on – my kinda lipstick. I tend to throw it on before I head out the door for the day and I’m usually so busy on the go that I don’t pay attention to reapplication, so this fits for me. I’ll find that sometimes I even have to wash it off at the end of the day because my lips are still a little stained. I’ve been wearing these since the launch a few weeks ago (where you might have seen we tested them out during a Soulcycle class that nearly killed me) and I’m honestly really impressed with the wear time once they set.

They’ve lasted through work days, wine tastings, lunches, etc. and usually without the need for a touch up. One thing I will stress though is that given the long lasting nature you will probably want to be careful with application; as I mentioned, once they’re on, they’re on so fixing up mistakes can be a little tricky. The pointed tip of the applicator definitely makes precision a bit easier though. I suggest starting off by lining the lips using this before filling in with the flat side to avoid making mistakes and having to attempt cleanup.

Moving on to the formula, this is where I hit a bit of a snag that prevents me from giving these 5 full golden stars. These definitely feel a little different from other liquid lipsticks you’ve probably tried, and upon application, they feel a bit sticky. I’m not a big fan of a tacky feel, so if you can get past the initial feel and give them time to set (which doesn’t take long) I suggest giving these a try. The formula is nicely creamy, which means that even though the finish is matte the lips are left feeling soft. Try not to apply too much to avoid any “crumbling” and give it a couple of minutes to set once you’ve applied.

Currently, Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink is available in 10 shades, swatches of which can be seen above (a few minutes after application once set): Loyalist, Dreamer, Lover, Pioneer, Heroine, Romantic, Creator, Believer, Escapist, and Voyager. The colours are bold and extremely pigmented, which helps the with the long lasting look. Lover and Pioneer have been in heavy rotation for me, and I feel like Believer will be added in very soon.

I think it’s safe to say that the matte lip is going to be sticking around for quite a while now, and I’m loving the fact that so many drugstore brands have decided to come out with some affordable versions of matte lippies – it’s easier than ever to put together a matte lip collection in a variety of shades without breaking the bank (especially after the holidays).

One of the latest to grace my desk? The new Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids, which will be rolling into stores in Canada starting this month.

From L-R: Nude Thrill, Nude Flush, Pink Charge, Electric Pink, Rebel Red, Fuchsia Ecstasy, Berry Boost, Possessed Plum & Vivid Violet. Also available (not pictured): Orange Shot.

Available in 10 shades, the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids promise two times more pigment for big, bold colour with a soft matte finish.

“Bright lip colour is the beauty equivalent to a superhero cape: As soon as a woman puts it on, she feels ready to conquer the world”

Upon first glance, I loved the look of these – simple, yet chic packaging and a selection of bold colours drew me right in. I’m definitely big on bold reds and berry shades, and was immediately drawn to Berry Boost (which is still my favourite shade). These lippies do give the lips a big pop of colour, which is something that I really look for when choosing a lip colour. They’re very pigmented, so much so that they do leave a bit of a stain behind afterwards, which means that even as the lipstick fades a hint of colour remains – something that has made me become very fond of stains as of late. Win-win for me.

When it comes to application, the applicator is a little bit different. It comes in a long, thing, almost cylindrical form, with a bit of a flat edge on two sides. I find that it’s easiest to apply product using the flat side before using the tip to define, smooth and fill in.

As for the product itself, I’ve really been enjoying the formula. It’s extremely rich and creamy, with a soft, velvety finish. I’ve definitely found that some matte lipsticks can become quite drying and flat looking once applied, and I didn’t find that this was the case at all.

If you’re looking for a full-on matte finish, you’re probably not going to get it right off the bat with these. I find that they still have a creamy look with a bit of sheen (as seen in my photo below). To help achieve more of a matte look, I’ve found that it’s best to apply a smaller amount of product (if you put too much on, you’re not going to get the same effect and will have more of a glossy look) and to give your lips a quick blot after application so the colour dries better, or you might find they have a bit more of a lightly glossy look (note: the below swatches have been applied following these steps).

I remember the craziness surrounding the original Melted Liquified Lipsticks that Too Faced released; everyone I knew went gaga for them.  The amazing pigments, smooth (but not dry) formula and crazy shades were a big sell.  I’m a big fan of liquid lipsticks – these amazing hybrids combine the best parts of a gloss and lipstick for a killer product – and was definitely impressed with these when they first launched.

Riding on the success of these they recently released a new collection consisting of 8 shades that brings the ’90s foiled lipstick look to 2015.  When I read this description I was a little worried. I grew up in the ’90s and there are many things from that decade that I would rather stay buried in the past, and frosted lips aren’t at the top of the list of things I would like to see revived any time soon.  But hey, I’m a beauty blogger, which means I’ll try anything once… And I’m glad I did. The new Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Metallic Lipsticks ($25.00 CAD) do have a metallic finish, but it’s anything but tacky.  The microscopic shimmer gives lips a beautiful multi-faceted glow while they’re bathed in gorgeous colour.  I’m not as big of a fan of the lighter/more coral shades, but the darker shades have totally won me over – I’m looking at you Jelly, Violet & Dream House (bring it on, Barbie!).  Take a look at the shades below and let me know what you think!
