If you have to pick up just one makeup product among all, which one will you choose? Well, I would choose lipstick hands down. And I’m not sure I’m not alone. There’s no doubt that a good ol’ lipstick is a game changer. While bullet lipsticks are a classic, liquid lipstick has made a permanent place in our hearts as well as in our makeup kits.
Why do you ask? Liquid lipsticks are easy to use, are highly pigmented and long lasting too. Use it only once in the morning and you are good to go. With solid payoff and stainproof formulas, liquid lipsticks are perfect for women who don’t want to touch-up their makeup through the day.
Today, Team Be For Beauty has come forward to list and review 30 liquid lipsticks of different formulations keeping in mind the three different price categories.
Come let’s find out what’s in store.
