Highlight your lips with HIGHLIGHT Liquid Lipstick


One of our favorites things about Sunday is the chance to introduce you to brands that are new to us and possibly to you. This week is a special brand because it’s a liquid lipstick that we’ve been introduced to and has made us glow with happiness.                                   #prsample

Highlight Cosmetics
is a new brand on the market that’s made in California. The brand consists of 10 matte Liquid Lipsticks which are all the craze right now. You can find matte lipsticks at every price point nowadays but it’s rare to find a brand that contains amazing ingredients that are not only good for your lips but also for your insides. HIGHLIGHT COSMETICS’ philosophy is “Highlight your inner beauty“. When we first read that we knew that there had to be more to this than just beautiful colors.

Just look at this list of ingredients. It would make this post too long to list all the pros about them so we’ll narrow it down:

Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Oil
improves lip softness,prevents the appearance of dry and chapped lips, has antibacterial properties

Camellia Sinensis Leaf (Green Tea) Extract
improves the moisture barrier of skin, is an antioxidant, reduces the appearance of lip inflammation

Camellia Oleifera Leaf (White Tea) Extract
Contains carotenoids and vitamins that build the appearance of damaged skin, dimishes the look of dry skin

LAMINARIA Ochroleuca (Kelp) Extract Prevents appearance of skin damage caused by the sun, aids in skin moisturization

Benefit Peptide called Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide reduces the appearance in lip wrinkle depth and volume

Now onto the two Highlight Liquid Lipsticks that we received and our reviews. See all 10 HERE.

As someone who doesn’t normally choose dark lips Highlight Sandstone Cashmere is a terrific shade for me. Not everything that’s described as nude is truly nude – we all have different skin tones so that makes sense. Sandstone Cashmere though is the kind of light nude that I picture in my head when I think of nude. Highlight doesn’t describe the shades but their website gives you accurate pictures of what you’ll get.

This lipstick surprised me from the get go. It is the most comfortable matte I’ve ever used. It doesn’t show fine lines easily, it doesn’t crack, and it lasts. I’ve been wearing this often because of the lightweight feel of it on my lips. I don’t feel like I’m wearing lipstick and I’m not afraid to eat or drink wearing it. If I have to reapply it goes on smoothly without disturbing the color left on my lips.

While there’s a touch of pink in Sandstone Cashmere on my lips it only shows up if I use a pinker liner with it. But this goes on so smoothly and evenly that I prefer it without a liner. If you are looking for a true nude and an on trend matte, Highlight Sandstone Cashmere needs to be on your lips.


Highlight Cosmetics Pink Sapphire Matte Liquid LipstickSo this Liquid Lipstick was certainly a surprise for me too. I had a heck of a time when I first tried to open it because I thought for sure it was actually a  lipstick…it took me more time than I’d like to admit to realize it was lip gloss with a twist off cap! The Pink Sapphire shade surprised me too…it looks fuchsia pink in the tube and swatched, but it is surprisingly more subtle and very pretty on.

I love the color and the formula impresses me too. It is extremely pigmented and wears for hours without fading or settling into lip lines. After a few hours I typically add a clear gloss over top just because I like the feel of some slip on my lips, and doing so doesn’t compromise the color or wear at all. Nice! The formula is water-resistant and it doesn’t transfer to my coffee cup or my husband’s lips, which is a huge bonus. Pink just isn’t his shade.

What a find – a matte liquid lipstick that has beautiful shades and excellent wear time is awesome, but one that also conditions and keeps lips soft thanks to turmeric and safflower oil is fantastic.
