The Best Liquid Lipsticks To Try For Extremely Long-Lasting Color

It's time to get on board with this beauty trend: Liquid lipsticks are coming up in a big way, and with good reason. If you've never tried one, they generally apply like a lip gloss, have intense pigmentation, and dry to a flattering matte finish. That means added control of application from a doe-foot applicator, one-swipe color, and extreme longevity. However, with long-wearing color comes the necessity for preparation. Before applying liquid lipstick, make sure to exfoliate and moisturize to combat any flakiness and dryness that may occur (try Lush lip scrub and EOS lip balm). But when you're ready for the longest wearing lip color of your life (really!), try some of these nine best (and some new) liquid lipsticks.
