Each holiday season brands put out numerous holiday gift sets and make it seem like it’s a “deal” or a special that comes around once a year. It leaves many of us wondering, is it a gimmick and is it really worth it?? Well today I am putting one holiday collection to the test! I gave in and purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Holiday Mini Liquid Lipstick Trio. I have ALWAYS wanted to purchase ABH liquid lipsticks but haven’t wanted to throw down the money. I’ve known people to swatch them and the swatch is still on their hand the next day… and that’s AFTER showering. Or so they claim, hahaa. Just kidding.
ABH is known for their liquid lipstick formula consistency and brilliance. Everyone I know is obsessed with them. I’m so fortunate I got a steal, 3 mini liquid lipsticks for $25. Some may not think this is a steal but however, I think it will be. & this is why…..
First off you only need to take the brush out once to get full pigmentation and the formula is long lasting so all you need is one swipe for the whole day. Secondly, the application was sooo easy! The shade bittersweet (my favorite) is a hard formula to master, it’s described as a “Swiss chocolate” but to me has a slight purple/burgundy undertone. This happens to be my favorite lipstick color in general, most lipsticks this color do not have a consistent formula, this, however, was not patchy at all! No second coat was needed as well.
Time to break down what you actually get!
You receive 3 miniature liquid lipsticks that contain 2.3 grams of product for $25. The claims are that it’s a “full coverage pigment, comfortable matte formula and has a rounded applicator for lining and applying lip color.” The shade descriptions are in order to lightest to darkest and the description in parenthesis is my personal opinion 😉
Left to right: Hudson, Dazed, Bittersweet <3333
Hudson – Deep peach (perfect for every day)
Dazed – Redwood (classic red)
Bittersweet – Swiss chocolate (perfect for the holidays)
My absolute new favorite color in the whole entire world is now Bittersweet, it’s absolutely perfect! Unfortunately the shades Hudson & Bittersweet are new to ABH and is only sold in this holiday trio. But if you are loving the shade Dazed it’s available for individual purchase at its full size.
Sooo my final thoughts….
Gimmicky? Maybe. Worth it? YESSSSSS.
If you love all three shades I say go for it! I think most people will fall in love with Bittersweet because it’s so unique and the formula is perfect which is hard to master for a shade that color. Hudson is perfect for everyday but is a little basic, but hey it’s an everyday color that’s transfer proof and small enough to take everywhere 🙂 Dazed is a classic red, this will definitely be my go-to date night red lipstick since it’s transfer proof! $25 for only 3 mini liquid lipsticks sounds like a lot but considering the formula there’s no question about it 😉
