sunday quickie: ciaté liquid velvet comparisons

Happy Sunday! Just poppin’ by between baking scones and other goodies for brunch to show a little comparison of liquid lipsticks. As you may know, I’m still on the fence on returning my new ciaté liquid velvet lipstick or not. I adore the color, but it cracks so fast on my lips! And for $18, I’d really rather it NOT do that, haha.

So without further ado, a little color comparison between the ciaté and some other liquid lippies I have!

ciate-comparison1. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick – Berlin
2. Ciaté Liquid Velvet Matte Lipstick – Smitten
3. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – San Paulo
4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Cannes

The KVD is the thinnest consistency, and cracks the least over time. It’s also the most neon! If it wasn’t so BRIGHT it would be very close to the ciaté color I love.
The NYX’s are both what they sound like: soft creams. These do crack on me (Cannes more than San Paulo) but they are SO CHEAP it’s really hard for me to complain too much! These are honestly the most comfortable to wear even with the cracking issues over time. Neither of these shades are close to the ciaté but after lots and lots of googling around, the NYX in Antwerp seems like it might be closer to the ciaté Smitten I love so much!

Have you tried any amazing liquid lippies that DON’T ever crack on your lips? Let me know in the comments! I’m dying to find the Best Liquid Matte Lipstick ever! 🙂

til later lovelies,
xoxo Swatchlette
