I'm just going to throw this out there - I love liquid lipsticks. I know I'm not the only one, everywhere I look people are using them and more brands are creating them - even the affordable brands are throwing their own take into the mix. 

Three particular liquid lipstick brands are at the top of the pack in terms of popularity (minus Kylie Lip Kits because I'm probably the only person on this planet who still hasn't tried one) and they are: Jeffree Star, Kat Von D and Lime Crime. All of which, until very recently, were an absolute pain in the butt to get a hold of in the UK. Now Debenhams stock Kat Von D, Beauty Bay stock Jeffree Star and ASOS stock Lime Crime - so obviously I had to try all three, right?

First up is my first liquid lipstick purchase out of the three and thats the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin. I wont delve too much into this one as I already have an entire post dedicated to it (which you can read here). The colour is divine, longevity is good and you can re-apply without it going crumbly and weird. As I've mentioned before my only nag is the scent, it's not the best smelling out of the three but it disappears once dry. The wand is cut perfectly to hug the lip during application and the packaging is pretty with the rose gold writing and Jeffree's signature hot pink lid. 
Longevity: 8/10
Colour: 10/10
Formula: 8/10
Ease of Application: 9/10

Next we have Lime Crime Velvetine in Cashmere - a cool-toned nude. Previously, there had been a bit of controversy surrounding this brand which really put me off purchasing. However, I trust ASOS and when they started stocking it I was on that quicker than you can say liquid lipstick. The cool-tone isn't something I usually reach for but the shade is incredibly flattering. Longevity is good, however the Jeffree Star option does wear slightly longer before wearing off. Can be re-applied without any crumbling as long as it's a thin coat and is slightly more drying too.  The packaging is adorable, I love the red lid with the pink roses and the frosted plastic tube, making it look more expensive. It uses the classic doe foot applicator that is much stiffer which does mean there is quite a bit of excess product so make sure you take the time to remove that before application. 
Longevity - 7/10
Colour - 10/10
Formula - 7/10
Ease of Application - 6/10

Lastly, I picked up the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. Everyone across the beauty community has raved about this product, so it was top of my list of things to pick up whilst in London. The packaging is much longer than the other two but is a whole lot lighter. Shade wise, this colour can be described as a Chestnut Rose - perfect for Autumn/Winter.  The formula is lovely and light-weight, it applies really easily with full opaque colour in one swipe but the longevity is awful. Within an hour of wearing this, I'm left with a ring of colour around my lips. This is just something to bare in mind if you're biggest request in a liquid lip is wear time. As for the wand, similar to the other two it uses a doe foot applicator, which is slightly cut to an angle to fit the shape of the lips but not to the extent of the Jeffree Star one and is also much stiffer like the Lime Crime option.
Longevity - 4/10
Colour - 10/10
Formula - 8/10
Ease of Application - 9/10

Jeffree Star and Kat Von D both cost £16.00 each and the Lime Crime cost £15.00.

Over all, Jeffree Star has come out on top, in my opinion. Despite the controversy surrounding him, he sure does know how to create a good product.
