Style File + Faryal Makhdoom Cosmetics | Why liquid lipstick is my makeup must-have

Whether it's because of the daily hustle or sheer laziness, touch-ups just aren't my thing. Once I apply my makeup, I like it to stay faithfully for the rest of the day. That's why I'm eternally grateful that liquid lipstick was invented. Like my boundless energy; it keeps up with me, no matter how late it gets.

I first found a friend in liquid lipstick a few years ago and through the years, our friendship only grew stronger. My day job as a senior beauty editor only fuelled the obsession further. So this year, when I discovered Faryal Makhdoom cosmetics, being pleased would be an understatement. It meant one and only one thing to me - more liquid lipsticks. Now a girl can't have enough of those, right?

When I finally got my hands on Faryal's latest collection of liquid lipsticks all the way from London, I dutifully slipped into my beauty editor shoes and took them for a spin. By that, I mean I applied the lipstick in the morning, left it at home and carried on with my day. That's the true test of a long-lasting lipstick: no touch-ups.

The new liquid lipstick collection from Faryal Makhdoom comes in 6 wonderful shades - Dubai Nights (a dark burgundy), Red Carpet (a rich crimson), Iced Frappe (a beige-ish brown), Persian Rose (a fiery orangeish red), Mauve On (a rosy plum) and Velvet Crush (a milky nude). Each shade from the British brand comes at approximately INR 1400 and promises a richly pigmented matte coat of lip colour that lasts for hours to come.

After a few weeks of reviewing the lip colours, here are my thoughts.

1. Consistency: The formula is thin and runny, making it easy to apply on the lips.


2. Pigmentation: Incredible! It's so rich that even a single swipe is enough to give a completely opaque coat to the lips.

3. Longevity: Hashtag winning. Once I applied it in the morning, the colour survived till night, with slight fading on the inner lip area. That's a whole 12 hours of eating, drinking and talking.

 4. Wearability: The formula does feel a bit drying on my lips, something I've experienced with most brands of liquid lipstick I've used. Also, apply it too thick and it can weigh down the lips so just a single swipe is more than enough.

5. Finish: The product applies as a liquid and dries to a good old fashioned matte finish so make sure you exfoliate before.

My verdict is that they're a great range of lip colours with phenomenal longevity and stunning shades, just make sure you exfoliate and moisturise before you go in with them. So if you, (like me!), like to fix her lipstick and forget about it without the hassle of touch-ups, you've just found your match made in makeup heaven.
