You don’t need to get multi-sticks (ones you can use as contour, highlighter, and eyeshadow) to do your makeup. Sometimes what you need is a trusty lipstick to get the job done.
Many have been using lipsticks as eyeliner and even color corrector, while others can’t leave home without their trusty lip tints. But have you considered dabbing a little lipstick on your eyelids as eyeshadow? How about gloss as highlighter?
If you’re looking for lip products you can use multi-sticks, we have a few suggestions for you.
Sunnies Face Fluffmatte in Bday
Sunnies Face recently launched their first nude Fluffmatte line, which includes the taupe brown shade Bday. Since Fluffmatte lipsticks are lightweight and matte, they make great blushes and eyeshadows for when you’re in a rush. If you’re looking for a subtle brown shade to add to your lips and eyelids, Bday is your best bet. Available at Glorietta 2.
Em Cosmetics Morning Dew Crystal Lip Gloss in Quartz
According to beauty vlogger and Em Cosmetics owner Michelle Phan, Morning Dew is a non-sticky and high-shine clear gloss that’s formulated with vitamin E. She also shared on IG Stories how she would use it as a highlighter to add a glassy effect on her cheekbones. Available online.
Blk Cosmetics Holiday Mini Creamy All-Over Paint in Pink Topaz
This product has a creamy formula that dries down into a velvety matte on the lips. When you apply it on your cheeks or eyelids, it melts onto the skin and you can easily blend it out for a natural-looking flush. It also comes in a mini tube you can easily throw in your pouch. Available at SM Makati.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Diamond
If you’re not brave enough to wear this vibrant periwinkle shade on your lips then you should use it as eyeshadow or liner. The Velour Liquid Lipsticks are eye-safe so you can pop Diamond on your lid if you’re doing a colorful look, especially this Halloween. Available on Freyja.
Maybelline Sensational Liquid Matte Lip Tint
Maybelline’s “lip tint” is a lightweight liquid lipstick that dries down matte and it’s completely budge-proof. You can also use this as a cheek tint, but you have to blend quickly or you might end up with a red splotch on your face. Available at select Watson’s stores.
