The name liquid lipsticks could confuse you as they're not really anything like lipsticks. L'Oreal describe them as having the 1) colour intensity of a lipstick, 2) magnifying shine of a gloss and 3) softness of a balm. They're formulated with oils, designed to catch the light. They're enriched with lotus flower, argan, camelia seed and rose canina fruit oils which help to give the formula a nourishing feeling and silky soft finish.
I picked one up in the shade 'Rose Melody' which is just my kind of colour. A rosy pink that's natural enough for everyday wear. Although I think the formula is quite gloopy, it applies easily and really does last a long time before I need to re-apply. It isn't too sticky and has a creamy texture that, once applied, makes your lips feel lovely and smooth. If you find lipsticks too high maintenance but don't get on with glosses then try these, as I think they sit perfectly between the two.Another thing I love about these is their smell, I don't quite know how to explain it but it's quite sweet and a bit fruity. These retail for £8.99 in Boots and come in an assortment of shades. I've noticed some brighter shades too, which I might have to pick up for Spring and Summer.
