Do you dream of a lipstick that has the staying power of a stain but without the heavy feel? Yeah, i figured! I had the chance to try out 3 liquid lipsticks from an awesome Canadian brand, Blynqe. Hailing from BC, this totally chic brand features their liquid lipsticks prominently on their flawless Instagram feed, and now I will be too!
I’m pretty spazzy, so I’m not great at wearing any sort of lip colour but there’s always room for exceptions! I think my main hesitation about lip products is my love of food and drinks, but once these bad boys were in place they weren’t going anywhere. I wore Chit Chat to work, applying at 7 am and I needed a tiny touch up around 5 pm. The staying power was amazing, even though I ate throughout the day, as most humans do.
The colours are gorgeous! Reign is a classic red, perfect for party season (or just chillin’ in bed). Whereas Morning Grind (poppy pink neutral) was a great accent to my regular work attire. It was just the pop I needed to look put together, without feeling too clowny. I also loved that it came out much darker than it appeared in the tube. Chit chat was hands down my favourite! The punchy fuschia colour was bold, but I still felt comfortable wearing it out.
Speaking of comfort, I did find that the formula was very liquidy and a little sticky, but once it started to dry it didn’t irritate me in the slightest. The colour is highly pigmented and very vibrant. There was a bit of transfer of the colour when eating or drinking, but I really found that the colour lasted though out the day.
I obviously love supporting Canadian brands, and although Blynqe only has the 3 shades, I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
Morning Grind, $15
Chit Chat, $15
