Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Matte Lipstick

While I have quite an extensive collection of cosmetics, I think one of my all-time favorite products would have to be lippies.  I have my fair share of gorgeous lip products I love and I absolutely swoon over new ones that come my way too.  There is not a lipstick, gloss or balm I don’t fancy and I love checking out new brands as well.  Today, well – it’s no exception!  I want to share with you Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Matte Lipstick and hopefully you found something new to check out too.

I was recently introduced to Highlight Cosmetics.  Highlight Cosmetics is a highend brand that was created to express the power of makeup.  Their goal was to contribute to a boost of confidence for all women, all around the world.  They used outer beauty and inner beauty as factors of their inspiration and worked hard to create products that offered quality for their customers, ensuring that each customer is looking and feeling beautiful.

Highlight currently offers 10 gorgeous and vibrant shades of liquid lipstick.  The matte liquid lipsticks are long lasting and non-transferrable leaving your lips smooth with a velvet lipstick.  Highlight’s liquid lipsticks are suitable for all skin tones, and offer ingredients that are high quality, consisting of different oils that will maintain its natural color while helping your lips to retain moisture and smoothness.

I got to try Ruby Royalty – a gorgeous deep burgundy red that is a matte lip with a slight metallic finish.  This lipstick is VERY pigmented, but super smooth and easy to apply.  It has a great soft velvet feel that I’m really enjoying and while it does kiss off, it lasts long on the lips.  I can easily get 4 – 6 hours of wear time with normal fading before I have to touch up.  I’ve been able to eat food and drink without any huge issues and just some fading as well.  After 6 or more hours, while I did have fading, it faded nicely (no weird and funky line on the inside of my lips).  I love that this doesn’t transfer on me, which is a huge thing because my husband doesn’t like lipstick on his lips and he has given me no complaints.  This lipstick doesn’t have that traditional matte liquid lipstick feel and is not drying on the lips at all.  It’s comfortable and offers beautiful opaque pigment so you get one swipe with gorgeous color.

The formula of this lipstick is quite interesting.  If you’re expecting a dry-matte lipstick or something that will dry out your lips, then this is not it.  Since the lipstick has a satin feel – I suggest applying slowly to ensure that you get an even application.  The formula itself has a mousse like texture, kind of like a creamy matte, not a liquid.  I love that this product is definitely comfortable on the lips.  You can feel that it dries down, but it doesn’t leave my lips feeling like I have 100 layers of liquid lipstick on.  My lips are soft and the product is quite light weight.

I would have loved to see a much darker, more deeper toned red in the collection, but I’m hoping that Highlight comes out with many more colors.  Overall, I do really enjoy Ruby Royalty and I’ve already been eyeing some of the other shades in the collection.  You can find a selection of neutrals, reds and pinks available – metallic and completely matte.

The NATURAL infusion of TURMERIC, GREEN TEA, WHITE TEA, SEA KELP, and a BENEFIT PEPTIDE will give your lips a soft, moist, and smooth finish.

Each Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick retails for $25.00.  The tube of lipstick includes a Net. Wt. of 4g / .14 fl.oz. and is encased in a gorgeous tube.  The packaging is fabulous and I love that it has that faux lipstick look, giving you the impression that you are pulling out an actual lipstick bullet… ha ha, trust me, I did try initially to do so.

Highlight Cosmetics is Made in the USA is cruelty free, gluten free, paraben free and non toxic.

    Ruby Royalty is stunning! I went with one of the neutrals, and though it’s a great shade, I wish I had picked RR instead

    That’s a beautiful shade. I have this in Sandstone Cashmere which is a great nude for me.
