I love these liquid lipsticks. They are cheap but work well and they last about 4 – 5 hours before it starts to completely rub away. They are not a gloss, they are completely matte so the lips might feel a bit dry but my lips aren’t cracking. Just exfoliate the lips and they will look amazing. Of course if you want it to be more moisturizing or want it to look glossy, you can always add some clear gloss on top and/or apply lip balm before the lipstick. At 6 bucks a pop, these are a steal and they have a nice variety of shades to suit everyone.
