My Ever Growing Anastasia Beverley Hills Liquid Lipstick Collection

Posted in Beauty
Anastasia Beverly Hills

Before I went to New York in July I had never tried anything from Anastasia Beverley Hills and my mind was happy in the knowledge that Kat Von D and Sephora own brand liquid lipsticks were the best out. On my very first day in New York – and the first of a million trips to Sephora – I picked up an Anastasia Beverley Hills liquid lipstick to try it out and decided to wear it to Warped Tour. During that trip I bought three more shades and since coming home I have ordered two more from Sephora which kind of shows how impressed I am with the formula.

Personally, I can not find a fault with the formula, the standard applicator holds enough product to fill the lips and it glides on smoothly without feeling too runny. The formula is easy to move around to cover the whole lips and doesn’t dry too quickly. Once it does settle down all the shades are super matte without being drying which is great and they’re also really lightweight. So many times I have been wearing them and thought they’d rubbed off because of how light my lips feel but they’ve always still been there.

The staying power is also incredible, I can easily wear one of these from 830am in the morning before work and get through a whole day of work including eat breakfast, eating lunch and drinking loads (I always forget to use a straw) and still have pretty much a full lip on. I’ve also had these liquid lipsticks last through greasy burgers and cocktail sessions. The great thing is the formula doesn’t seem different in any of the shades. With some brands, I find one shade might have great lasting power but others not so much but all of these are consistent.

Here’s a rundown of the shades I have:

  • Ashton- Midtone yellow-brown which is a slighter darker than nude brown. This is probably the one I reach for least out of the six shades but when I have a brighter cheek or eye I opt for this neutral tone.
  • Dolce- Muted coral. This is my go-to everyday shade as it is light, fresh and has the right amount of colour without feeling too dark to wear to work.
  • Dusty Rose- Dusty mid purple tone. This is one of my favourite shades and the first one I picked up. It’s a mid-tone lilac/ pink colour and it’s just such a pretty shade.
  • Catnip- Soft plum which is slightly brighter than Dusty Rose. This is slightly more pink than purple but the good thing is it’s dark as opposed to bright. I don’t suit really bright colours so this is perfect.
  • Kathryn- Berry brown which is one of my darker shades but the brown hue in it stops it from being too bright and the muted berry tone doesn’t wash me out like some other darker lip shades can.
  • Craft- Sangria is a really deep pinky red tone and is great for going out if I want a darker more vampy style lip. Naturally this isn’t one I find myself reaching for very often but you always need a good going out shade.

  • I have always wanted to try Anastasia lip products and that berry and nude shade are calling my name!

  • I love that it has good staying power – so many lip products don’t!

  • Beautyqueenuk

    I love the look and sound of Catnip and Dusty Rose x

  • I adore all the colours , they all look good so it would be hard to choose one.

  • Vicky Hallnewman

    I love these colours, did they feel dry on the lips or were they moisturising? the ones I always seem to find are dry on my lips.

  • I have not tried any of the anastasia range but everyone I know who has has raved about it!

  • Elanor

    I’ve recently become a fan of liquid lipsticks and I’m amazed at how well they stay put! Given your great review, it looks like these ones should be next on my list!

  • I really should pick up some of these as I’m such a liquid lipstick fan! I’ve been hearing such good things about them – particularly their staying power. I love the shades you have, especially Dolce, it’s gorgeous. x

  • Ickle Pickle

    I have never heard of this brand but they are ALL the shades I love – and which suit me! I would be spoilt for choice. Kaz x

  • Bethany Naismith

    These look so pigmented and lovely! I haven’t tried anything from ABH yet though!

  • Jenna Von Abbott

    I have never tried anything but I have looked at them before. These lipglosses look amazing though! x

  • mummyslittlemonkey

    I’m not a lippie girl, but am partial to a bit of lip gloss so this could be my perfect compromise! I think Dolce would be my choice. x

  • Love these shades! The Dusty Rose in particular is definitely my cup of tea!

  • beautykinguk

    I have heard a lot of talk about these from Rachel and apparently they are amazing, the shades all look quite similar to me (im colourblind).

  • I would like to have all of the shades, AB is one of my favourite brands! I have heard amazing things about these lipsticks x

  • Paighton Anna Millington

    Never heard or tried these, but I’m so in love with the shade colours, they’re definitely my colours. ☺️

  • Francesca Nelson

    Oooo I’m a fan!! I really want some of these myself and you’ve bagged yourself some really gorgeous shades!!

  • Harriet @ Toby&Roo

    Oh I am totally a fan of these shades, they are perfect for Autumn!

  • These sound like such a brilliant formula and it’s great that they’re consistent between shades! It’s so annoying when you love a product, buy it in a few more shades… and they’re all naff.

  • Such beautiful shades! Isn’t it great when you find something that you really love?

  • Bex Smith

    Wow, that’s a collection! They are all such beautiful shades and the formula sounds great

  • Jessica

    I like the Kathryn and Craft shades. But if I can have them all, why not? haha.

  • I love Anastasia Beverley Hills makeup especially their brow wiz or pomade brows. Hmm I like the Dusty Rose colour and would love to try them out.

  • kerry norris

    I’ve never heard of this brand. The dulce colour looks lovely x

  • Gym Bunny Mummy

    I love Craft, that really is my kind of colour. I tend to wear quite a lot of darker lipsticks as my little man just doesn’t sleep and a darker/brighter lip draws the attention away from my tired eyes!

  • Anna

    I’m already a big fan of ABH products, but am yet to try the lipsticks or glosses. This post has made me want to try them right now though!
    (I like to order them from Net-a-Porter as I love the boxes they send them in!!)
