 Having tried and loved Anastasia Beverly Hills' brow products, I was thrilled to learn they were expanding the line and could not wait to get my hands on their first non brow related product, the ABH Liquid Lipstick.  Unfortunately for me, their initial launch was US only (I was living in Hong Kong at the time) and they were so popular that many colors have been sold out, on and off, since their initial launch in 2015. It took two years of scouring Sephora but I finally got my hands on them and decided to review them here. 

I'd been admiring them on Instagram for so many years that I knew exactly which colors I had to have: Crush, Dolce, and Dusty Rose.

My initial impression was positive.  They were easy to apply and took about 10 minutes to dry to a matte finish.  For the first hour, they looked fantastic and I was so happy with my purchase.  The color was long lasting but unfortunately it seeped into my lip lines the longer the day went on, giving them a prune like appearance no matter how many times I exfoliated or moisturized my lips before applying.

I really, really wanted to love these but I just didn't.  No matter how many different times or ways I applied them, the result was always the same.  I still love Anastasia Beverly Hills but this product just wan't for me.  

If you've tried them already, or have any tips for liquid lipstick, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the comments below!
