I can’t believe how much the liquid lipstick trend has blew up over the last year. I have tried so many different brands and have built myself quite an extensive collection of this liquid greatness. Today, I share with you a company that I have not tried prior to now and one that I have been enjoying. Move over dry liquid lipsticks and make way for the era of bold and daring color with moisturizing feel and texture. I introduce to you the Peeks Cosmetics Lip Blasters.
Peeks Cosmetics Lip Blasters ($14.00 USD) come in at least 20 different shades from your basic nudes and browns to bold reds and gorgeous shades of the rainbow. You can even find black and white in the mix of colors they have available. These fun and funky lip shades are sure to tickle anyone’s love for makeup and provide high intensity lip color in a semi-matte finish. Each one is moisturizing, which is quite different from your average liquid lipsticks on the market today and they provide long-lasting and vibrant color in just one swipe. With application you get a light weight formula that applies smoothly and a mint flavor that keeps your mouth looking and feeling kissably fresh all day.
A Cruelty Free, Gluten and Paraben Free product – this liquid lipstick is a bit different then what you are seeing in the market at the moment. It leaves your lips with a gloss like texture and dries down to a semi-gloss / semi-matte once it’s been on the lips for a while. I highly suggest you using a lip liner prior to application to keep the liquid in place through the day so you don’t get feathering or travel outside of your lip line and you can also blot the color some after application for longer wear. Expect transfer with these babies… because they do and can slip off the lips like a traditional gloss and lack the sticky from a traditional gloss so they will come off really easily if not careful.
I find that these colors apply very bold and vibrant with one swipe. However, since the doe foot applicator used to apply the product is smaller than most, it can take a few applications to cover your entire lip. Reapplying this product is easy because your lips are not dried out like traditional liquid lipsticks that stain and dry down matte. I found that after eating or drink, reapplying the product is a must and if I’m not eating or drinking I can get a few hours of wear before touching up.
As you can tell from the swatches below – most of the color is bold and vibrant without streaking. Application on these is like dealing with a thin liquid, so it really makes blotting your lips or puckering your lips easy and you don’t have to worry about that sticky feel you can get or bunching from traditional liquid lipsticks. I highly suggest that if you have naturally dry lips that you still exfoliate because certain colors (like the pink and purple) can settle into the lines of your lips and leave them looking dry even if the finish and texture of this product is glossy.
If you are looking to tone down the bright colors like Popularity and Purple Kisses you can simply blend in a warm brown lip liner or lipstick. Something like Milani’s Color Statement lip liner in Spice will help to warm up the tone of those shades and make them a tad bit more wearable. With Delicious – the deep brown Lip Blaster, you could add a light brown or cream brown shade to soften up the brown to make that more wearable. One suggestion would be NYX’s Liquid Suede lip cream in Tea & Cookies blended with Delicious from Peeks to create a gorgeous mauve toned brown.
If you are looking at trying something new and are into the liquid lipstick craze, but you’re tired of the dry lips that those lipsticks can leave you… then I highly suggest checking Peeks Cosmetics Lip Blasters out. These products are so cool and comfortable in texture and really leave your lips feeling moisturized with a vibrant punch of color. Remember that while these have wonderful pigment, are bright and bold – they do have movement and can wipe off and transfer – so this is definitely not husband kiss approved (lol). The gloss look can really offer your lips a hydrated and juicy look and the gloss look stays through out the wear. If you blot your lips some, they still look a little wet – though they feel so comfortable on, you would probably think you have a liquid like lip balm on your lips.
