Have you ever got an obsession about something because every where you turn it is there. That is what happened with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in the shade Pure Hollywood. Every single picture on Instagram and Pinterest that I have loved recently, they were seriously all wearing this lipstick. There must have been over twenty times where I thought, that lipstick is gorgeous, and when I found out the shade, it was always Pure Hollywood. Of course I took this as a sign that I needed it my life and after weeks of it being sold out, I finally got my hands on this beauty!
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick is a fairly new product launch to a growing collection of covetable make up items, which was once just a collection of brow products. The cult Brow Wiz (post here) and sell-out Contour Palette (review here) are some of Anastasia’s most favorable products, and now Pure Hollywood seems to be generating the same hype.
This liquid formula, applies with a doe foot applicator, which I always appreciate and in one swipe delivers a fully opaque coverage on the lips. It is intensely pigmented so a little goes a long way, and once dry sets to a matte finish which stays put for quite a few hours. It is ever so slightly drying, not in its appearance but in the way that after an hour or so, I feel myself wanting to put some balm or gloss on to keep my lips supple. However if you are after a long lasting lipstick, this is the one!
Lovers of a pinky nude lip will adore the shade Pure Hollywood I am sure. It is pale pink with a slight mauve tone to it which to me, makes it slightly more cool toned, however it still manages to flatter a warm complexion like mine. You can see in the picture above how it looks in direct sunlight and below how it looks away from the sun. I would say though that the picture below is more of a true shade reflection.
Kim Kardashian’s make up artist Mario Dedivanovic, has instagrammed pictures of Kim wearing this exact shade to John Legend’s birthday party and the BET Honors, which is why I am sure this shade keeps selling out all the time. If you like the smokey eye, pale lip like Kim then you are sure to love this shade too.
It is currently only available on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Website, but at present Pure Hollywood is unfortunately out of stock again. If you are eager to get your hands on it though, you can add your email address to the back-in-stock list and they will email you when it is next back in stock.
