Skin tone: Fair-light, yellow-neutral undertones
Hope all of you are doing fine! I am pretty excited to share another liquid lipstick with you all which surprisingly compelled me to re-think about liquid lipsticks from Anastasia Beverly Hills. As much as I disliked the tacky feel and dryness on my lips, it seems now I love these babies for picture perfect finish. However, this does not change my experience with these liquid lipsticks as they certainly feel drying over a period of time, so it is either you love them or hate them sometimes, depending upon weather and lip conditions respectively. So let’s read more about this Anastasia Beverly Hills lipstick.

My Experience with Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick – Heathers:
The liquid lipstick comes in traditional plastic gloss tube packaging with a sponge tip applicator. It does have significant smell which soon fades upon application, hence no complaints. Overall it has pretty attractive and travel friendly packaging.
My shade “Heathers” is defined as brownish oxblood which seems brownish wine red color to me closer to marsala if I say. I love how it amplifies my skin texture while it does scream attention in every possible way; no wonder it is a runway inspired shade. It is definitely not meant for faint hearts; even I cannot think of wearing it other than for particular occasions or meet ups. However, I feel it will work well on every light/medium/dusky Indian beauties considering it does not make me look vampy; I think it increases my sex appeal ;). I see a lot of matured age or gracefully ageing dusky beauties sporting this shade like cake walk.
Coming to the texture, it has a wet liquid formula which easily slips on my normal dry lips and dries onto bit tacky finish initially thereby setting onto smudge free stain. I am impressed to see its lip hugging, comfortable finish though I dislike that tacky feel. Oh yes, like Catnip I did experience tacky feel on lips especially when the liquid lipstick dries onto stain but if I keep on dabbing lips together for few seconds then the tacky finish subsides eventually. But I have to resist myself real hard from not pursing lips together while the liquid finish is in transition phase or yet to dry because it totally messes the whole finish making it patchy and flaky. I am settling in peace with this formula as I love to experiment with different lip colors while I do have my comfort lip products for everyday use.
Needless to say the way it gives fuller lips with well defined features it is only possible with this formula unlike creamy slippery lipsticks which never give me contoured lips. Moreover, I have mild dry lips and the lipstick delivers perfect seamless, well saturated wine red color pay off to my lips with a bit dry yet comfortable finish. I do see bit flaky and highlighted lip lines after 3-4 hours of wear time but other than that nothing concerning. It does tend to sit in lip lines after few hours but it never causes dryness on my lips, I feel soft lips even after removing it off though I crave for juicy wet gloss within hours of wearing this lipstick. Probably I am more into wet juicy lipsticks. I am fine with the staying power of 5-6 hours or say actually 3 hours because after 3 hours I do see mild chipping hence I would rather prefer touch ups or re-application over showing myself in patchy lipstick.
Pros of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick – Heathers:
• Such a bright and bold matte wine red lipstick.
• It imparts perfect saturated color pay off on lips in just one swipe.
• Suitable enough for mildly dry lips and pigmented lips as well.

Cons of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick – Heathers:
• The color is tricky.
• The finish feels tacky on lips while drying.
• It has tendency to sit in lip lines after 2-3 hours of wear time.

• It may smudge after hours especially when our T zone becomes oilier.

IMBB Rating: 4/5!
Would I Recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick – Heathers?
If you are totally into matte lip products then chances are you will love these lipsticks. To sum it up I think I would like to try more shades from this range as I love how it makes my lips fuller and defined.
Verdict: Well the fact that it gives me close to Kylie Jenner pout is good enough to let go these cons except the truth that it is not a cake walk to walk outside with this shade. 😛 Never mind I am not able to lay my hands on Kylie Jenner products so let’s settle in peace with their possible dupes. Lol.
