Nude Liquid Lipsticks Compared

I've had a love for liquid lipsticks since the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets hit the scene and as much as I loved them I wanted some more shades I could wear everyday. I made the mistake of wearing a red on a day I was taking my son swimming. I popped it on in the morning without a thought. I hadn't reapplied all day (or looked in a mirror, apparently) and it wasn't until that evening in a kids pool with my son, in a bikini with a striking red lip looking like I thought I was some sort of a 50's pin up. They are great that you can leave them on all day and pretty much forget about them, with my day's being all over the place, juggling mum-life, work-life and home-life I need something to suit all occasions. 

Like many men on Tinder I was after some nudes!


I've been wearing these 3 nude shades a lot for the past few weeks. I love the fact they all set in place, you can pretty much leave them on for the day without worrying about reapplying. I find them to be a great base for lipsticks too if you want to change the shade a little bit. Adding a sheer pink over the top of a nude is very cute for spring.


Let me break them down for you...

liquid-lipsticks-nyx-lip-lingerie-babydoll-Revlon-seduction-barry-m-pose-swatchestop to bottom- NYX Lip Lingerie Babydoll, Revlon Ultra HD Seduction and Barry M Matte-Me-Up Pose

NYX Lip Lingerie in Babydoll (£6.50) is the lightest shade. It has an ALMOST candy-pink to it without being too much. This is very quick drying and out of the three the most drying on the lips but not so much that it's a problem. I didn't think it felt heavy or stiff at all, just if you have particularly chapped lips then avoid this one. The staying power is awesome though.

Rimmel Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction (£8.99)
I really like the frosted packaging of this one and as it's slightly bigger it's easy to find in my bag and see which shade it is. This has a different texture to the others, it's much more like a lipstick with it's creamy, velvety feel. It's a bit of a warmer shade so it's perfect for all year round - it will be fab in Autumn. It has a slight vanilla scent and I wouldn't say it's your typical matte finish, it's definitely not glossy but not strictly matte either. 

'Matte with a little somethin' somethin' 


Barry M Matte-Me-Up Lip Kit in Pose (£6.99)
If you want something long lasting this is the one to go for. All swatches lasted on my arm all day (and overnight cos I'm a total dirtbag!) and when I washed them off in the shower the next morning this one took the most amount of rubbing to remove. It goes on more watery than the others but it is still easy to apply and dries pretty quickly. It looks a lot more pink when it's first applied but dries slightly darker with more of a brown tone. It's a reasonable price anyway but you get more for your money with this lip kit as you get a fab lip liner too. 

They all feel fairly light on the lips to me, I don't really notice I'm wearing them but I am used to wearing a lip colour every day. I think I need to pic up some brighter shades for Summer and I've heard some great things about NYX Liquid suede's too. I don't think I'll ever own enough lipsticks but for me liquid lips is the way to go this season if not just for the easy life! 


The prices I've included are based on the Boots website but there are always offers on to save you some money. 

I'd love to know your liquid lip recommendations. Tweet me or leave me a comment.

  1. I love a nude colour lip. I have only tried the Revlon one you have reviewed but I think it's really good! I think I have to give the other two a go :)
