If you didn’t know…I LOVE matte liquid lipsticks. Even before it really took off as a trend, I was ALL about that matte lip and anytime I can try a new one I do a little happy dance, of course! Highlight Cosmetics liquid lipstick is a new product on the market and when they offered to end me a lipstick to try…well, how could I say no?!
Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks
The ‘H’ at the end of the box is actually a cut out so that when the lipstick originally arrives you can see your lipstick shade through it. I didn’t know what shade they were sending, but was thrilled when I saw it was this Moroccan Spice. Totally my type of shade! The formula is really smooth and pigmented. It’s liquidy…but still thick and creamy — in fact, it reminds me a lot of my favorite formula, Smashbox Always On!
I do like that this company uses things like turmeric, kelp, safflower, and green tea in their formula. It makes me feel better about wearing lipsticks so often. 🙂
I will admit I was a little taken aback by the price of these lipsticks, but that was before I realized that these Highlight Cosmetics Liquid lipsticks are a high end product/brand. Depending on what you compare them against they can be a few dollars more or less expensive.

It takes a decent amount of time to dry
Not that it takes a LONG time, but I would give it a full minute or so to set before going about your day, or else you’re likely to get lipstick on your teeth. 😛 If my lips are in really good condition (meaning: well moisturized, no flakes or dry patches) this Highlight Cosmetics liquid lipstick looks amazing for a good 3-4 hours with light eating and drinking.
I do not find that it layers well, though, which poses a problem for me if I planned to wear it the whole day. If I want it to really look good I need to remove the lipstick entirely and reapply. This might not be a big issue for you, but it is something I wanted to point out.
I am really 50/50 on this lipstick. I love the shade I got and will totally use this baby again and again, but it hasn’t taken the place of my favorite liquid lipstick line, so I doubt I will repurchase. It is a great formula, however, with awesome packaging (reminds me of THESE products) and totally worth a splurge if you think this is the type of formula you will enjoy!
