ABOUT THE BRAND:
Anastasia Beverly Hills
Global cosmetics brand Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded in 1997 by Romanian-born beauty entrepreneur Anastasia Soare. Dubbed the “people’s make-up brand,” ABH has cultivated an industry-unique relationship with its core customer, focused on product education and responsiveness in delivering the “ultimate polished look” for which the brand is known.
ABH Founder and CEO Anastasia Soare was first to introduce “brow-shaping” to salons in the US—based on her patented “Golden Ratio” method—and is widely credited for fueling the multimillion-dollar business that now surrounds the category.
In 2014, the company broke from tradition to debut its new category of professional make-up. ABH has since received industry-wide recognition for digital innovation and numerous accolades for cutting-edge product trends such as the category first Contour Palette and cult classic Liquid Lipstick.
ABH cosmetics are available at anastasiabeverlyhills.com, Sephora, Macy’s, ULTA, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, and select retailers in over 25 countries including Saudi Arabia, Australia, Sweden, Romania and France.

This long-lasting formula is a must-have for every busy woman on the go.
HOW TO USE:
+Exfoliate your lips – you can brush your lips while brushing your teeth or invest in a lip exfoliator. After you exfoliate pat dry with a towel or cotton pad.
ATR Tip: When I first started incorporating lip exfoliation into my beauty regimen I found an affordable exfoliator by e.l.f from Target. It’s been a year since I purchased and I still have this exfoliator stick, not bad for $3. I only use it when I am going to apply lipstick which is probably why it lasts so long. But in a true beauty regimen you should exfoliate 1-2 times a week.
+Lightly apply lip balm to the lips and allow it to moisten and soften up the lips. Let it sit for a bit before moving onto the next step.
+Line the lips with liner. Shape the lips with the liner and fill in.
ATR Tip: Most MUA’s will have varying opinions on if the liner should or should not match the color of lipstick which can ultimately alter the final color. I personally use a similar color to every lipstick shade I apply. I use NYX brand of lip liners they are $3 from Nordstrom Rack.
+Now its time to apply the lip color. I like to use 2 layers of color. Apply the first layer and then wait for it to dry. Apply second layer to the lips. Make sure to cover all outlines of the lip liner.
ATR Tip: After first and second layers apply a dusting of translucent loose finishing powder. This will help seal the color for a long lasting look.
+Outline and touch up any mistakes with concealer which will also give your lips a little pop on the face. This is similar to the effect of what it does to eyebrows.
ATR REVIEW: 5/5
I absolutely love this liquid lipstick. I personally favor matte finishes than the liquid finishes. One day I walked into Sephora and asked the MUA to help me find a good long wear matte lipstick. She talked me through a few of the different types and then we tried on her recommended product, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick. I was looking for red, so at that time Sephora only carried a handful of color in stores. She tried the color American Doll on me. I loved it and ultimately led to a purchase.
After using this lipstick I fell in love. The pigment and coverage is fantastic. You only need to use a small amount in order to get great color on the lips. I put the long wear to the test, I have used this color while eating and drinking and it always outlasts everything. I never had to reapply. With the assist from a liner, the color never bleeds from the lips either.
I tried a few other long wear lipstick brands after this to compare on which brand I like better. And I still choose Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick over all other long wear brands from Sephora.
I loved it so much I bought four more in multiple shades and love them all: Madison (which is my absolute favorite and new go-to lipcolor, move over red), Spicy, Soft Lilac and Ashton.
I recommend this product for matte long wear lipcolor. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
