Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick : Kathryn, Crush, Soft Lilac (Review, Swatch, Photos)

Lipstick fanatics agree in unison, Anastasia Beverly Hills has one of the best formula in the category of pigment-hugging, infinite-wearing and non-drying liquid lipsticks. When I saw the new spring shades popping online (8 in total), I hurriedly ordered 3, one a namesake so I had to get it no matter what. Scroll down for more photos, swatches and lippies in action!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, Kathryn, Crush, Soft Lilac Review Swatch


The shades I gladly procured were Kathryn (yay for the name!) which is reddish brown, Crush (soft beige) and Soft Lilac (pale violet). They apply quite glossy but dry to a beautiful matte finish in ten seconds or so. The doe foot applicator is drenched in pigment which renders full opacity in one swipe. The secret to applying liquid lipstick as seamless as possible is to moisturize your lips at least five minutes prior. I don’t know about you but I start on the bottom lip, lightly smack, then apply on the upper lip.

Unless you chow down food oozing in grease or deliberately remove with force, the wear time is past eight hours, sans transfer on clothes, hands, coffee mug, even water jug. It is also waterproof, that’s how hardcore this lipstick is. Hence, it’s a must-have for women who don’t want to be bothered with retouching and whatnot. Check out the other shades I have reviewed in the past, they are as stunning as these trio! Wait, upon closer inspection, I discovered that I wrongly ordered Soft Lilac because I was eyeing Madison (plum magenta) but checked out with the former. And guess what, I already own Soft Lilac, but that’s fine because this shade is one of my favorites! Lesson learned, don’t order online when you’re half-awake and tired, haha!

    I would be so chuffed to find a namesake beauty product! Soft Lilac will be mine. That shade is calling me!

    All three shades you got are gorgeous! I looked at these at Ulta during the April sale but I didn't get any. Wish I had seen your review first!! PS Where did your bangs go?

      Try one and see if you like it. I'm into matte lipsticks so these fit my wants. I brushed the bangs to the side, for a change 😉

    As usual, these look fab on you. I'd love to try one of these lippies but I think that they'd murder my lips.

    Kathryn is on my list for sure! I love how these look on you! <3

    I think I've only encountered one makeup item that was partially named after me (since Mai is only half of my first name) so Kathryn minus the e is pretty dang close! You've pretty well sold me on your namesake shade.

    These look absolutely GORGEOUS on you! I love every single shade!

    I'll never find a namesake! Ha! I didn't realize these were new. I almost bought the Soft Lilac shade today when I was at Sephora. It was lovely but I was having a hard time justifying a frivolous purchase today.

    You're namesake is perfect for you–funny how that worked out huh? LOL

  9. May 3, 2016 / 12:55 am

    Kathryn is so perfect for you. I like the look of Crush for me but I haven't bought any of these.

  10. May 3, 2016 / 1:09 am

    I have heard so many good things about these! I need to snatch some up!

  11. May 3, 2016 / 3:13 am

    Hello Kathryn! That one is definitely my shade 🙂

  12. May 3, 2016 / 7:37 am

    Ah, what a find it would be to get a namesake beauty product! lol. I love yours, and Soft Lilac is gorgeous.

  13. May 3, 2016 / 3:26 pm

    Kathryn was definitely made for you 🙂 This color looks absolutely stunning!

    The colors are definitely gorgeous and Kathryn was made for you… I even love how the spelling is the same. I sadly can't really use ABH liquid lipsticks… I picked up one last year and it caused my lip to crack so bad… but I just have the dumbest skin sensitivities. I can't even use ABH eye brow products, they cause my brows to dry out and my eczema to flare up. But, I'm thankful that other products work for me like the eye shadows 🙂

    I've had my eye on these, they sound and look so great! As usual, you've chosen amazing shades.

    I have never tried the ABH Liquid Lipsticks, but they look wonderful.
