Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liqid Lipstick in Ashton

Today’s review is on one of my favourite products, Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Ashton. It is described as a, “mid-tone yellow brown”; I find it to be an orangey brown colour.It’s a very flattering shade that I find myself reaching for when I want something a little sexier than a nude but don’t want to commit to anything too dark. I find that it wears the same as most ABH liquid lipsticks; good pigmentation, long-wearing, smudgeproof, and  drying on the lips. I definitely recommend prepping your lips before applying and making sure you moisturize afterwards. Overall though, it’s another lovely product from ABH. It retails for $26.00 (Canadian) for 0.11oz of product.

Pros:

  1. Warm toned shade, it’s a very flattering shade
  2. Pigmented, ABH definitely knows how to create some pigmented liquid lipsticks
  3. Long-wearing, it’ll stay on forever and there’s minimal transferring when you eat or drink
  4. Matte finish, it dries down to this fairly quickly

Cons:

  1. Drying, you want to make sure you apply one coat to avoid your lips feeling like you’ve sucked the life out of them. I also find I tend to get dry, crusty lips around the 6 hour mark
  2. Hard to touch up, touching it up means applying more product which leads us to the point where your lips feel like they’ve been in the Sahara Desert
