Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Milkshake, Pure Hollywood, & Retro Coral ~ Part 1 : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS

The retails for $20US and $26CAN for 0.11 oz of product. Which is half the amount of product compared to the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks for reference. ;)

My first shade I purchased from the line was Retro Coral but is not a shade sold anymore... but It also an Anastasia exclusive shade but it also makes for a good formula comparison.... and the old packaging issues.

Part 2 for shades is HERE.

Product: 
The formula is a satin/matte finish that is lightly tacky in the first hour when you press your lips together. The pigmentation was fairly even with the Milkshake and Pure Hollywood with 1.5 coats if needed and the dry time had a fair bit of wiggle room, that I used to transfer products from my bottom lip to my top lip with lightly smacking them together. ;)

Retro Coral was a sheer formula but could be built up to full coverage with two coats.

Colour:
Milkshake is a warm light baby pink. This shade applies much light when wet before drying down.
Pure Hollywood is a warm mauve nude with a dusty quality.
Retro Coral is a vibrant almost neon coral pink. This shade is sheer due to the pigment used and needs 2 layers to get full coverage.

Wear: For about 6-10 hours. They also wear down with dignity so I found no harsh fade edges.

Packaging: Is a clear tube with a doe foot applicator and silver cap. The new packing as an audible pop when you uncap the lid because the tube actually kisses the inside of the cap when closed compared to my older Retro coral.

Compare / Dupe:
Pure Hollywood is a warmer version compare to Colourpop's Midi shade. It was also less matte and more of a satin finish to the Pure Hollywood.

Milkshake is a very light nude pink with a warm tone compared to Colourpop Vice. It was also a lot smoother looking compared to Vice on the lips and you get more pigmentation out of it (aka I can be applied thinner to achieve full coverage).

Verdict:
It nice to have local access to the formula now in Canada. It a little late for me to go ham in collecting shades from this brand as a lot of the classic shades I have in other brands. But I'm definitely eyeing getting more shades in the future because the formula is comfortable to wear.
