Do you have lipsticks in your collection that you’re intimidated by but love all the same? That’s my relationship with Anastasia Beverly Hills Ashton liquid lipstick. I’ve had it for about 6 months now and sadly haven’t worn it out of the house yet. Whenever I see someone else wearing it it looks beautiful, but when I put it on it always seemed to ruin every look. It was too dark even when I was at my tannest. I was trying to get out of my comfort zone playing with makeup the other day and I finally made it work! When it first goes on, it looks DARK. Like a latte with two tablespoons of creamer. *Artsy description I know* jk but it definitely went on too dark again when I applied it. HOWEVER, before I had the chance to wipe it off and try something else, it dried down to the most beautiful sienna brown. It wasn’t too dark at all, but the perfect brown. I was kind of stunned.
Details from the rest of this makeup look:

I honestly thought I couldn’t do brown lipsticks and when it comes to those gorgeous Kylie Jenner dark neutral shades, I go for mid tone shades rather than dark or get colors with some pink or purple in them. I’m so happy to say I finally found the brown lipstick of my dreams! I paired it with MUFE 3C liner because I tend to grab that for almost every neutral lip look I do. The combination of the two was the perfect simple neutral brown lip.
I wore it for a few hours and it looked a little dry, which I find typical of ABH liquid lipsticks. I wasn’t actually going anywhere so I didn’t prep my lips properly with balm so that could have been helpful. I’m excited to finally get more use out of this lipstick and let it see the light of day finally.
What is your favorite brown liquid lipstick? Have a great weekend!
