It’s been a long time coming, but I finally grabbed two of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks to add to my matte liquid lipstick collection. Of course, I always have that idea in my head that, “Am I just duplicating an item from my collection, or will it be something new and different?” So, what I did was take a few items with me to the store and swatched on my hand, and walked out with these two. I really did walk Anastasia Beverly Hills Veronica but it is quite close to Kat Von D Lolita (2nd version) while Anastasia Beverly Hills Trust Issues is similar to ColourPop Tulle.
The two I did pick up were:
– Anastasia Beverly Hills Dusty Rose
– Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Plum
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dusty Rose is just that. A muted mauve that was the exact shade of my lips. So, this was a definite must for me. I even applied it in-store to check it out, and I really loved it enough to buy it. On the way home, I kept checking it out in the mirror, and it looked almost identical to Sephora Marvelous Mauve. So, I did try it out with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dusty Rose on the bottom lip and Sephora Marvelous Mauve on the top lip, and it seemed identical, but I still decided to keep it because the formula was wonderful for the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks. Let’s take a look:

And to compare side-by-side (as it is easier!):
Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Plum is the unique one of them all. It’s a deep pink with subtle purple undertones a light blue/purple iridescence/shimmer that almost make it a deep berry shade. This one applies really smooth, as it is a of a mousse texture. The shimmer does not effect the texture at all. LASplash Cosmetics Alice was about the closest, but it is more of purple than Sugar Plum is.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks have a creamy, mousse texture and apply really smoothly. The last is really good and breaks down as with all liquid lipsticks via oil. As this was my first encounter with the brand, I would definitely branch out and try some of their other products. I have my eye on one of their eyeshadow palettes, so maybe we shall see that soon!
