It may only be August, but I already have the holidays on my mind. I am that crazy person who has their apartment decorated from Halloween all the way through New Years. Its crazy, I am already seeing Halloween and Christmas decorations in the stores. So when I first heard about the new Ciate Glitter Flip Liquid Lipsticks, I was intrigued. I mean who doesn’t want to rock a quick, easy, long lasting glitter lip for the holidays? Well, they have launched and they are even better than I expected. Happy #hallowthanksmas.
The Ciate Glitter Flips are currently available at Sephora and retail for $19 a piece. There are six colors, all swatched above. From left to right: Infamous, Fortune, Iconic, Forbidden, Siren, Hollywood and Candy. When they are first applied, they look like a slightly metallic matte. The magic happens after they dry.
After prepping your lips, apply one coat to lips without pressing them together. Allow the lipstick to dry for 2 minutes. When the 2 minutes is up, press your lips together and be ready for some magic. The glitter will become more apparent the more you press your lips together.
I picked up the colors Hollywood (in the video above) and Infamous. I am really in love with both of these colors. The formula dries down all of the way and is transfer proof. That being said, they are also comfortable to wear. They are long wearing and you can always add a balm on top if your lips are feeling a tad dry. They are also very pigmented and I was able to do my lips in one swipe. The applicator is great for getting a precise lip line, however a lip liner would be beneficial for the darker shades.
Not only are these colors festive for the holidays, but they are so fun for festivals or a girls night out. The glitter does not fall all over the place and is much quicker to apply than a regular glitter lip. Pick Hollywood or Candy for a classic look with a little sparkle or go with Siren or Iconic for something a little more trendy and edgy. No matter what color you choose, you will have a look that won’t soon be forgotten.
