These lippies are just the thing to make a statement when you’re in a rush

A liquid wand lipstick is the perfect on-the-go applicator for the busy, modern woman. Combining the best of both worlds – the colour payoff of a lipstick and the easy-to-swipe-on benefit of a gloss – if you haven’t fallen for these hybrids yet, now is the time. Here are seven we love to get you started.
TIP: Lips that have been looked after and are moisturised are going to take the formula of a liquid much better. Exfoliate your lips once a week with a scrub, and on the days you don’t wear lipstick, always keep a hydrating gloss close by.
Models Own Lix Liquid Lipstick Matte
Liquid lipsticks tend to last longer than normal bullet lipsticks, especially those that come in a matte or satin finish like this Models Own Lix Liquid Lipstick Matte.
Revlon The Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor Metallic
Dishing out a unique metallic matte colour, this liquid lipstick adds dimension to your lips to make them look bigger. The mango and vanilla fragrance in the formula is simply icing on the cake.
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Bold Liquid Lipstick
This liquid lip colour has it all: a long-lasting formula with intense colour payoff and a glossy finish, and its flocked sponge tip is a winner for getting a controlled application. Plus, the addition of emollient ester and glycerine is a treat for softening lips.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick
Besides the nourishing formula (thank you natural monoi oil and coconut oil) and intensely pigmented colour, we think it’s pretty cool that this liquid lippie is created by hand in small batches.
Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D has an extensive colour palette to suit all preferences. It’s the ultimate gloss for day or evening and each has a matching lip liner to help keep the liquid from bleeding into fine lines around the lips – how perfect!
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color
Rihanna’s new Stunna Lip Paint is hands-down the perfect shade of red. “I wanted a lipstick that wouldn’t budge ... even as you eat,” says Rihanna of her product. Mission accomplished – this one goes on glossy but dries matte with real staying power.
