BATTLE OF THE BRANDS | The Ultimate Liquid Lipstick Showdown

If you’ve been reading my site for a while, you may already know about my undying love for liquid lipsticks. They’re the one product that I just can’t get enough of, and cannot resist buying in order to find the best formula and shades. Because of this, I have tried out many of the big names in the liquid lipstick game, and I think I’ve had enough time to decide which ones I think are the best of the best, in my personal opinion, of course. If you’re interested in checking out which liquid lipstick reigns supreme, please keep reading.

The Assessment

I will be judging these liquid lipsticks based on a few factors and will give a score out of 5 for each factor:

  • Formula: Runny? Thick? Funny smell?
  • Longevity/Comfort: How long does it actually last throughout a full day (around 8 hours)? And do my lips look and feel ravaged?
  • Packaging: Sleek? Practical? Bulky? Cheap?
  • Shade selection: Does it come in a variety of shades? Does it cater to all skin tones? Are they all readily available?
  • Value: I will be comparing the price/oz. to see if you get the best bang for your buck. I will also take into consideration the shipping costs if the product is only available online.

After giving each product a score, I will then be able to determine which one I believe is la crème de la crème of liquid lipsticks. I’ll go from chronological order, starting from the very first liquid lipstick I’ve ever tried. This post is going to be extremely long, so feel free to click the links to whichever product your interested in if you don’t feel like going through all of them, or just scroll all the way to the bottom to find out which one wins this round:

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

nyx soft matte lip cream antwerp
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

A few years ago, when liquid lipsticks were scant in the makeup market, I was looking for a product that would give me the colour I wanted, but with a matte finish. There weren’t really many products like this except for those horrid “long lasting” lipsticks from the drug store with the extremely drying liquid on one end, and a crappy balm on the other. Then, I found the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams.

  • Formula: The product itself feels moussey – it’s creamy but it feels lightweight at the same time. They have an artificial vanilla scent to them which isn’t too overpowering. The pigmentation varies from each product, but I would say the darker colours are a lot patchier than the lighter ones. These don’t dry down completely matte, however I would say it’s as matte as it can get without looking and feeling like paint on the lips. (3/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: These do not last long at all and are certainly not transfer proof. They smudge very easily, however they do stain a little bit. I will say that the SMLC was not meant to be a long lasting lip product, so I will take that into consideration. With that being said, it is very comfortable to wear. It doesn’t dry out my lips and I can wear it for extended periods of time without irritating my lips, and can be reapplied with ease. (3/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is very simple and small. I think it’s practical and can fit in any purse and is small enough to fit in a pocket. The applicator is nothing special, and I think it doesn’t make it very difficult to apply the product nicely on the lips. The stopper can get a little messy, however, causing the product to spill out onto the sides, which could potentially get all over the packaging. (3/5)
  • Shade selection: The SMLC line has a bunch of amazing shades that suits everybody. They have neutral shades for every skin tone, and they even have crazy shades for people who are feeling more adventurous. (5/5)
  • Value: These are available at the drugstore for about $9 CAD for 0.27 oz. of product, which appears to be a lot of product, but I believe that it could be because of how dense the formula is. Regardless, the price is definitely right. (4/5)

Overall score: 18/25 (72%)

Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait

guerlain luxure nc40
Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait

I was on a trip in Barcelona and decided to see if I could find any decent long lasting lipsticks while I was traveling, since I couldn’t be bothered with having to reapply while being on the go. I went to a mall and was given a sample of the Rouge G de Guerlain L’Extrait in the shade M25 – Colere, and I fell in love.

  • Formula: This formula is truly wondrous. It feels very creamy and velvety upon application and goes on completely opaque with one swipe. It smells like roses, but it isn’t very strong. This product also doesn’t dry down matte; it has more of a satin finish to it. (5/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: Although the product doesn’t dry down completely, I find that it does last for quite some time. It transfers after applying it, however after the initial blot of extra product, the transfer is very minimal. I’ve worn this for very long days filled with lots of eating and drinking, and I rarely ever had to reapply since the colour was still quite vivid and had not faded much while also remaining comfortable. It seems a bit like a stain, but without the dryness and patchiness. (4.5/5)
  • Packaging: As I’ve mentioned before, the packaging is very extravagant. It comes with a built-in mirror for applications on the go, which I think is really cool, but I definitely see how other people would find this quite bulky. It also is much heavier than the average lip product. Nonetheless, it looks and feels like a luxurious product, and I personally would not expect any less after paying $50 for a lipstick. (4/5)
  • Shade selection: This product unfortunately only comes in a very few shades. I will say though that the shades that they do come in are truly beautiful, however I wish they would widen the range a bit more to cater to more skin tones. (3/5)
  • Value: This product goes for about $53 CAD a pop for 0.2 oz. of product – which does seem like a hefty price at first, and I suppose it still is, however it does come with quite a bit of product. Its packaging is also very luxurious, which could be part of the reason why it’s so pricey. (3.5/5)

Overall score: 20/25 (80%)

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

stila patina nc40
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
  • Formula: This product has one of my favourite formulas. It’s a little thick, creamy and dries down matte. It goes on opaque on one swipe and has a light artificial vanilla scent. (5/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: I like wearing these whenever I go to work because it doesn’t feel like it dries my lips out too much and I also don’t feel the need to reapply. It wears well after eating and drinking, however it does get a little dry on the inside of my lips. (4/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is very sleek. It has a good weight to it and is quite sturdy. I love the flexible doe foot applicator that comes with it since it makes it a lot easier to apply the product. (5/5)
  • Shade selection: Stila has been releasing a bunch of new shades in the past year, a lot of them being bolder shades, however I think that all of them are beautiful and could cater to many different skin tones. Hopefully they come out with more wearable shades in the near future. (3.5/5)
  • Value: The price is currently $31 CAD for 0.1 oz. of product, which is quite expensive if you ask me. This product doesn’t really have any bells and whistles to justify the cost either, so I definitely don’t believe the value is there. (2/5)

Overall score: 19.5/25 (78%)

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

kat von d lolita nc40
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
  • Formula: KVD liquid lipsticks are quite finicky. Lately it hasn’t been much of a problem, however the earlier releases varied greatly from the subsequent batches that were released. There was a huge problem when Lolita was restocked after being out of stock for quite some time, and the shade has not been the same since it was originally released. In addition, I noticed some variances in the formula as well. Some of the newer batches, in my opinion, seem to be a lot more drying than the older batches. For the most part, I do like the KVD formula. It’s thin – a little runny, dries down completely matte, has a light sweet scent to it, a bit like a caramel-vanilla-ish scent, and goes on opaque. The darker shades, however, tend to go slightly patchier than the lighter shades. (3/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: These are quite long-lasting and are generally comfortable to wear over extended periods of time. I wear Lolita almost every day for work and never feel like my lips need some time off from liquid lipsticks. I also never have to reapply after eating and drinking. However, some of the other shades feel a little drying, and they tend to clump up on the insides of my lips as the day goes on. (4/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is very sleek and thin, and I really like the applicator that comes with it. The design doesn’t really bother me, but I can see how some would find it a little tacky. (4.5/5)
  • Shade selection: The shade selection is wonderful. There are so many different shades that can work on many different skin tones, and there are some lovely bold shades as well. The only problem is that half of them are usually sold out, so it takes months before you can even get your hands on a popular shade. (3.5/5)
  • Value: This currently retails for $24 CAD for 0.22 oz. of product, which is actually pretty good considering the formula is quite runny. I’d say it is just as affordable as a drugstore brand by volume. (5/5)

Overall score: 20/25 (80%)

Lime Crime Velvetines

lime crime cashmere nc40
Lime Crime Velvetines

I know that this brand has a lot of controversy behind it, however I think we can all agree that at one point, this was the liquid lipstick that was dominating the market. All ethical issues aside, I believe it’s only fair to include this in my assessment.

  • Formula: These liquid lipsticks are very runny and thin. They aren’t very opaque upon application and they do take some building up to get a good colour pay-off. They have a sweet, artificial vanilla scent, similar to the Stila liquid lipsticks. They dry down very matte. I’ll get into the comfort of these liquid lipsticks in a second, however I think that the formula irritates my lips a little bit. Every time I wear them, my lips feel very itchy at the end of the day and I usually end up with tiny little bumps that go away after a few days. I have never experienced this with any other liquid lipstick, so that’s definitely not normal. (1/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: These liquid lipsticks are quite long-lasting. Whenever I do wear them, I don’t normally have to reapply, and they are virtually transfer-proof, unless you’ve been eating. However, they aren’t the most comfortable product to wear for an extended period of time since they’re extremely drying, which is expected from such a matte formula. I also mentioned how these lipsticks irritate my lips after wearing them, which could be because they’re so drying, but it could also be because of the ingredients that are supposedly not lip-safe. (1/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is really cute. It’s small and comes in a frosted tube with a very pretty painted top. The applicator is tiny, which I personally like since it makes it easier to be precise with the product. (4/5)
  • Shade selection: The shade selection is wonderful and quite unique. There are many options ranging from MLBB shades to some crazy ones for the more adventurous type. (5/5)
  • Value: This product currently retails for about $26 CAD for 0.088 oz. That is a ridiculously small amount of product, and I really don’t know where indie companies like this get the balls to charge people prices higher than high-end brands would per oz., and that’s not even including the shipping charges. (0/5)

Overall score: 11/25 (44%)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

anastasia beverly hills craft nc40
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick
  • Formula: The ABH liquid lipsticks are very similar to the Stila liquid lipsticks. They’re a little runnier, however their scent is almost identical (for the ones that do have a scent), and they have the same moussey texture and opacity. These also dry down fairly matte, but they do transfer a tiny bit. I believe that the ABH liquid lipsticks have been reformulated, however the only difference I can decipher is the scent. I will say that one of my oldest lipsticks from this brand, one that I bought almost a year ago, is starting to smell a little funky. I can’t remember if it always had a strange smell, but I’m not particularly impressed with how the formula holds up over time. (3.5/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: These are definitely long-lasting lipsticks. They stay put from the moment you put them on and won’t budge until you have to scrub them off. They do feel a little uncomfortable after wearing them for a few hours and are somewhat drying. They also wear off on the inside of the lips and get a little crusty. But I’ve never had to reapply while wearing these lipsticks out or for work. (4/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is very standard. However, I don’t really like how the label rubs off so easily- it makes the product look cheap. The applicator is also quite generic. I wish they would have used an applicator similar to the one by Stila since it applies this type of formula much better and more easily. (3/5)
  • Shade selection: The shade selection for this line is to die for. There are so many different shades, with new ones being released a few times a year. My biggest gripe with this line is that they will not have particular shades in stock for several months. I hope they create more supply for their ever increasing demand, especially now that it’s available in Sephora. (4.5/5)
  • Value: These lipsticks retail for $26 CAD for 0.11 oz. of product. These products aren’t exactly cheap, and before it was a lot worse since they only used to be available through the ABH website for Canadians, and their ridiculous shipping charges ($17.95 USD) did not make it worth it. However now that they’re available at Sephora, I’m thinking that the price isn’t so bad. (3.5/5)

Overall score: 18/25 (72%)

Colour Pop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

colour pop bumble nc40
Colour Pop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
  • Formula: Colour Pop Ultra Mattes are very thin and runny. They dry down extremely matte, but some vary in terms of how opaque they apply on one swipe. Some require some building up while some others have a great colour pay-off. They don’t have a particularly strong scent, but they have a faint chemical-ish fragrance, sort of like paint. Once applied, they don’t really transfer, however I have noticed that some of the newer shades don’t dry down completely, and those tend to transfer a little more. (3/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: These are by far some of the most uncomfortable liquid lipsticks I’ve tried, which was expected given that they are basically like literal lips. I definitely have to prep my lips very well before using these, and it requires a generous layer of lip balm underneath if it’s being worn for more than a couple of hours. On their own, they don’t really last too long since they are so drying. They tend to crust and flake off, which doesn’t end up looking or feeling too good after a few hours. With lip balm underneath, they are a lot more tolerable, however the lip balm does compromise its longevity, and even then, it still isn’t very comfortable to wear. (1/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is nothing special, it reminds me a lot of the ABH packaging since they have a similar cap, the letters rubbing off the tube, and a very similar applicator. When these first came out, a lot of people were talking about how the product would actually overflow and spill out from the packaging. I haven’t experienced this, and I haven’t heard of any complaints about this issue since, but that definitely isn’t a problem anyone wants to have with liquid lipsticks. (3/5)
  • Shade selection: Colour Pop Ultra Mattes have a wonderful variety of shades to choose from, and they’re really good with coming out with new ones several times a year. I think this line has one of the best shade selections on the market, ranging from neutrals that flatter most skin tones to some very bold and dramatic shades, and everything in between that. (5/5)
  • Value: These currently go for about $8 CAD for 0.11 oz. of product. These are an affordable alternative for people who live in the US, however for everyone else, the shipping charges can easily make them much more expensive than other popular brands with arguably better formulas. (2.5/5)

Overall score: 14.5/25 (58%)

NYX Liquid Suede

nyx liquid suede vintage nc40
NYX Liquid Suede
  • Formula: The NYX Liquid Suede lip products have a thin, watery consistency. They go on quite opaque upon the initial swipe, and they also don’t dry down matte at all, however I don’t think they were ever meant to do so. Instead, they have a satin finish. I expected them to have a similar scent to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, because most liquid lip products more or less have the same scent – the artificial vanilla fragrance, but these ones don’t really smell that great. I think they meant for them to be unscented, however they just smell like sour paint to me. (3/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: These are not long-lasting in the slightest, and they transfer like crazy. You also have to be careful with these smudging while eating or drinking as they can get a little messy. They are, however, quite comfortable to wear. (3/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is cute and simple. I noticed the applicator had a longer doe-foot shape, and I was expecting it to be similar to the one that the Stila liquid lipsticks have, however these ones are very stiff and don’t have any flexibility to them at all. However, they’re surprisingly easy to use and work well for getting crisp lines while applying product. (4/5)
  • Shade Selection: This is a relatively new line, so it doesn’t have an overwhelming amount of shades yet, however I think that the shades that are available are quite unique and flattering to many different skin tones. (3/5)
  • Value: These currently sell for $10 CAD for 0.13 oz. of product, which I think is a very reasonable price. I’d say it’s around the same price range as other drugstore lip products, and would probably be even cheaper whenever it goes on sale. (4.5/5)

Overall score: 17.5/25 (70%)

NYX Lip Lingerie

nyx lip lingerie nc40
NYX Lip Lingerie
  • Formula: These have a thin and watery consistency, and they aren’t very opaque upon initial application, but can be built up. These also smell like sour paint, however they dry down quite matte. (3/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: This is tied with the Colour Pop Ultra Mattes as one of the most uncomfortable liquid lipsticks I’ve tried. They are extremely drying, even with lip balm under. They settle into every single crevice on the lips and they crust up like crazy on the inside of the mouth. They don’t really transfer since they’re so matte that they dry down immediately, similar to paint, but these are seriously a pain to wear for an extended period of time. (0.5/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is nice and simple. The applicator is the exact same as the NYX Liquid Suede products, which I do like even though they are a bit stiff. (4/5)
  • Shade selection: These are a recent release by NYX, however they have a wonderful shade selection. The entire line is basically all nudes, and they really do have one for every single skin tone. I happen to really like the nude shades which I picked up, which was surprising because I have a very hard time finding nudes that suit me, so I think that NYX really hit the mark with these. (5/5)
  • Value: These currently sell for $9 CAD for 0.13 oz. of product. I think the price is definitely right for the amount of product that comes with it and is in the same ballpark as other drugstore lip products. (4.5/5)

Overall score: 17/25 (68%)

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick

jeffree star velour liquid lipstick unicorn blood nc40
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick
  • Formula: These liquid lipsticks have a very thin and runny consistency. They dry down matte, however they have a rubbery feel and finish to them. They also don’t really sink into the crevices of the lips like most other full-on matte liquid lipsticks do. I have three shades, and they all smell like varying degrees of root beer. I can’t tell if this is a scent I like or not, but it isn’t overpowering and it doesn’t linger once it dries. They also go on opaque upon initial application. (4.5/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: I think that this is one of the more comfortable liquid lipsticks I’ve tried, even without any lip balm underneath. I wear them for hours on end while eating and drinking, and they don’t give me any problems in terms of dryness or clumpiness. They also last for quite some time and wear well for extended periods of time. (5/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is, in my honest opinion, a little tacky. I like the size and the shape of the actual tube, but the design is not really my cup of tea. I would also like to note that one of the liquid lipsticks I have started leaking a mysterious oily substance at the bottom of the pink part of the tube, which isn’t even where the opening is. It has only happened once, and I haven’t noticed any leakage with the two other ones I own, however it was definitely weird and off-putting. (2/5)
  • Shade selection: The Velour Liquid Lipsticks are known to have some of the strangest shades. A good chunk of them aren’t exactly ones I would wear on a regular basis, however I think it’s cool how they make such unique shades, especially with such a great formula. However, I really don’t like how most of the popular shades are constantly sold out and are not obtainable unless you buy them within the first 30 minutes that they’re restocked. (3.5/5)
  • Value: This currently sells for about $25 CAD for 0.19 oz. of product, which is a great price especially for the amount of product that you get. However, these are only available online, and depending on where you buy it from, the shipping costs can make these quite expensive. I got mine from Beautylish charges $10 USD for shipping for orders under $35 USD, so buying one cost me about $40 CAD in total. It’s definitely not cheap, however luckily its formula and the amount you get compensates for it. (4/5)

Overall score: 19/25 (76%)

Lip Kit by Kylie

lip kit by kylie true brown k nc40
Lip Kit by Kylie

Lip Kit by Kylie

  • Formula: The formula is slightly runny, but it isn’t super thin like the Colour Pop Ultra Mattes or the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. It’s right in between the textures of the KVD and Stila liquid lipsticks. It goes on opaque upon initial application and dries down matte, but has a slight stickiness to it. The scent, however, is a little too strong for my liking. It has a very sweet fragrance, kind of like a very artificial cupcake, vanilla-ish flavor, but it’s almost too sweet – almost sickeningly sweet. I find that the fragrance also lingers for a bit after it dries down. So if you’re sensitive to fragrances, this is definitely one to avoid. (3/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: This one wears well through several hours and transfers minimally after eating and drinking. After wearing it a few times, however, I don’t really think it’s the most comfortable after more than 3-4 hours of wear. It is a little drying, and it tends to sink into the crevices of the lips after a while. (3.5/5)
  • Packaging: The packaging is very similar to the Stila liquid lipsticks. I am not a fan of the little design on the tube, however it’s a only minor gripe. The applicator is very generic – similar to the Colour Pop and ABH liquid lipsticks. I do wish that it came with a better quality applicator, however, since it is a little difficult to apply product with precision. (3.5/5)
  • Shade selection: There are only a few shades in Kylie’s line of liquid lipsticks, and to be frank, I find them all to be quite boring. There are beautiful shades, however none of them are extremely unique and all of them can easily be “duped”. They also all sell out within minutes of being restocked, which is extremely irritating. (1/5)
  • Value: The liquid lipstick can only be bought in a pack with the accompanying lip liner, and the set is about $37 CAD, so I’m just going to say that it’s about $18.50 CAD for the liquid lipstick for 0.11 oz. If the liquid lipstick was available for individual sale, I would say that $18.50 isn’t terrible. However, once shipping is factored in (~$15 USD), the price skyrockets to about $37 CAD. The reality is that if you want this product, you obviously need to buy the set, and for us folks living in Canada, it ends up being about $60 CAD. That shipping price is absolutely not worth it unless you plan on buying several sets at the same time, however I can see Kylie releasing individual shades numerous times over the next year, and that’s a lot of money going down the drain. I don’t see the value in getting any of these sets (apart from bragging rights, of course), especially for a mediocre product. (1/5)

Overall score: 12/25 (48%)

Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick

dose of colors cork
Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick

Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick

  • Formula: These are a little thick and moussey, similar to the Stila liquid lipsticks. They go on opaque upon initial application and have a very slight vanilla scent to it. They dry down matte, but with a slight tackiness. (4/5)
  • Longevity/Comfort: These are very comfortable on the lips. They don’t sink into the lines on the lips, and they aren’t too drying either. They last a considerable amount of time, even throughout eating and drinking, however they transfer a lot. Even after just having a sip of water, they transfer quite a bit. In spite of that, the colour still stays on the lips, so it wears gracefully throughout the day. (4/5)
  • Packaging: I love the packaging of these liquid lipsticks. I love the frosted glass and the simple design on the tubes. I also love the size of it – not too big and fits right in a little handbag; it’s very similar to the Jeffree Star liquid lipstick packaging. I haven’t heard of any complaints regarding the seeping of oily substances from the tubes either, so that’s always a plus. I also like the applicator a lot but would have preferred a doe-foot applicator like the ones that come with the Stila liquid lipsticks, since it’s easier to apply this type of formula. (4/5)
  • Shade selection: The shade range is mostly very wearable, generic shades. They have a ton of nudes, several berry tones and darker shades, and a couple of bright and wacky ones too, however they are wonderful shades that still have some sort of edge to them. I only own one shade, Cork, and while it’s a brown shade that you’d think would be similar to the several other brown/nude shades that companies are coming out with in the over-saturated liquid lipstick market, I haven’t really stumbled upon any others like it. (3.5/5)
  • Value: These go for about $31 CAD for 0.16 oz. of product. That price is including shipping to Canada, and since these are only available online, I’d say that’s a great price especially since it comes with a good amount of product. (4/5)

Overall score: 19.5/20 (78%)

And the winner is…

Although there’s a tie between the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and the Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait, there is certainly one that dominates the other. These two products are extremely different, and while I love both dearly, I have to say that when it comes down to it, I believe that the KVD liquid lipsticks win this round. They have a great formula, they come in an amazing variety of shades, the packaging is great (i.e. won’t spill all over you or your purse), and it’s very reasonably priced. With that being said, I still love all my liquid lipsticks and wear most of them regularly, however I definitely have a preference for KVD liquid lipsticks, and I cannot recommend them enough.

Have you tried any of these liquid lipstick brands?

Which one do you think is the best?

8 thoughts on “BATTLE OF THE BRANDS | The Ultimate Liquid Lipstick Showdown

  1. Exactly what I was looking for. Confuse with so many brands and so many good review. Yours is the most extensive and complete. Thanks so much now I can decide which one to buy. Keep up the good work.


    1. I’m glad this helped! I know it can be difficult to pick the right product, especially when the market is so saturated. Good luck on your hunt for the perfect liquid lipstick!


  2. Gurl, I just ordered four Kylie Lip Kits, and after reading your review, I have to say I’m a bit nervous about them hahaha. I second your opinion on Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipsticks, though! They are, by far, my favourite liquid lipsticks, and Lolita II is my everyday go-to shade. 💖


    1. Hello there! Glad to see you back 😀

      KVD lipsticks seriously can’t be beat! Lolita is my go-to shade.

      As for the Kylie Lip Kits, hopefully they reformulated them back! I’ll be honest; I haven’t really looked into the reviews for the newer shades she released, so there’s a chance they went back to how they were made before! Hopefully you end up liking them 🙂


      1. Girl, sorry for the late reply. I have to give it to you – you were right! In my opinion, Kylie’s matte liquid lipsticks are fairly long-lasting, velvety upon application, doesn’t transfer much once fully dried down, but… It does go off quite easily at the centre of my lips and requires touching up, plus it crumbles a bit after a while… It smells delicious, though, like candy or buttercream. Or artificial strawberry mixed with vanilla. Or whatever. Kat Von D’s formula still tops my list tbh. Kylie’s formula is alright, but definitely not one of my favourites.
