Liquid Lipstick Rankings

Updated 9/21/17

After I discovered liquid lipsticks, bullet lipsticks became a thing of the (mostly) past. Here are my hits and misses, and full reviews will be forthcoming. Rankings by category aren’t in any particular order as their formulations are similar. “BoB” indicates that the company is a black-owned brand.
