How To: Wear Liquid Lipstick

I’m sure that by now, most of you are aware of liquid lipstick (think Kylie Jenner’s ever-present pout) but for those of you that don’t know what it is, liquid lipstick is a unique formula that goes on like a gloss but dries to a matte finish. The formulas can range (some are more liquid, some more tacky) but a good liquid lipstick is highly pigmented, long-wearing and dries to an almost smudge-proof finish to ensure that your colour hangs around as long as a Kardashian (or Jenner) in the tabloids. Here are some of our favourites, all available at Coquitlam Centre.
