Everybody and their mom has raved about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks for the past 3-4 years. I couldn’t WAIT to get my hands on one when they finally arrived in Canada, and I didn’t care what colour I got, since Sephora was always out of stock. I was immediately a fan, and have collected several in the past few years. When I saw the Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Liquid Lipstick Set on Sephora‘s site a few weeks ago, I immediately threw it into my cart and checked out.
The set includes 3 mini liquid lipsticks in a soft red, a brown/pink shade and a rosy pink. I was in love with all three and couldn’t wait to swatch them. I knew the rosy pink shade (Hudson) would be my favourite, and would be in my purse for everyday use. The brown/pink shade (Bittersweet) is out of my comfort zone, but I think is perfect for Fall. Lastly, the red shade was so beautiful, I couldn’t wait to try it for the holidays (Dazed).
The shades arrived in my mailbox, and I couldn’t wait to try them out. I dove into Dazed (the red) first because I was just in love with the colour, and… It was much more burgundy than I had envisioned. While still gorgeous, I just didn’t think I’d get a ton of wear out of it (photo #1). Next up was the rosy pink, Hudson, which I was most excited about (photo #2). Hudson dried down to a dark brown colour, compared to the gorgeous, rosy shade in the tube. And lastly, Bittersweet (photo #3) was the shade I knew would be out of my comfort zone, but great for fall. Unfortunately, this dried down to a VERY dark brown colour, and I just do not suit it at all. I was very disappointed, and still cannot believe that all of the shades dried darker compared to their tube.
On the plus side, I think the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick formula has improved. These were unbelievably comfortable and light weight, as well as super pigmented. I would absolutely go out and purchase more of their liquid lipsticks, just these shades were not for me! It’s unfortunate because I think this Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Liquid Lipstick Set is PERFECT for anyone wanting to try new shades. A lot of the time people can’t finish an entire lipstick, so minis are perfect! I hope they come out with more sets in the future. This set can be purchased from Sephora.com for $33/Cdn and each tube contains 0.08 oz.
