Anastasia Beverly Hills | Liquid Lipstick in Dusty RoseFriday, December 11, 2015
Back with another review and lip swatch post! This is my first liquid lipstick from the brand ABH. It is quite pricey so I order only one shade to try out and it is their newer fall colour - Dusty Rose. I can't seem to find this on their website. I got it off Carousell (as per usual), for S$35 with free normal postage. This shade seems to be sold out all the time! I did found some dupes online that are more accessible options.

Update 14 Dec - I finally manage to get my hands on the Sephora 13 Marvelous Mauve as I much prefer their formula. I did a comparison and swatch. I looks quite different even though still in the same colour family. I just updated the lip swatch for the Sephora one in my liquid lipstick post, see them here.
I wore this for the first time at work today. I wore it for about 8 to 9 hours with almost 5 hours of constant talking It did not transfer while drinking and wore comfortably, less drying than the Colourpop ones.
However, I would not recommend this if you are going to be talking a lot, as this will form the awkward 'white rim' on the inner part of your lips. It is so ugly. But I managed to just scrape that part off, leaving a slight gradient lip. I didn't find it flattering but my colleagues said it looked fine.
On the plus side, this shade is very unique and flattering. I did get a few compliments on my lip colour today :) now, I am really tempted to get the Sephora Marvelous Mauve since I love their formula so much more!!!
Overall, this did exceed my expectations and I will recommend trying this out if you can get your hands on it. If not, for a similar shade, just go try the Sephora one! You will not be disappointed by the formula. I have yet to try Stila liquid lipsticks as the colours are all either too bold or too nude, nothing in between. Hopefully I'll be able to find something I like from them soon and I will do a comparison :)
