ABH Pure Hollywood – The Perfect Nude?

Hey lovelies,

I know it’s been a very long time since my last blog post. Around 2 months to be exact but for some reason I was lacking motivation when it came to blogging and life would always get in the way. However, I’ve missed my little space on the Internet and I’m excited and most of all motivated to finally get my blogging game back on track. If you happen to follow me on any social media, especially Instagram, you might know that of course I have still continued to expand my makeup collection because I’m just obsessed and I can never get enough. So I’m looking forward to sharing lots of reviews with you in the next few weeks.

I thought my first blog post, after my little break, should be about one of my current most used products. It’s no secret that when it comes to makeup my favorite thing to buy is lipsticks and lately, just like everyone else on the Internet, I’ve been loving liquid lipsticks.

One brand I’ve always wanted to try is the Anastasia Beverly Hills ones as everyone seems to be raving about them. When one of my dear friends got two of their shades for me for Christmas I was absolutely ecstatic and could not wait to try them. While I’m not too keen on the shade ‘American Doll’ she got me, although I love the color, the one I want to talk about today I’ve really come to love ever since I first applied it on my lips.

The color I’m talking about is a lovely nude called ‘Pure Hollywood’. For a while I was on this dark nude lip kick and it’s all I would wear but ever since I got the Tom Ford ‘First Time’ lipstick for Christmas I’ve realized that I need more lighter nudes in my life. ‘Pure Hollywood is definitely more on the peachy side but it still has a light touch of pink to it. I think it’s a stunning color for every day or the perfect neutral color to wear kind of even out a dramatic heavy eye make up.

If I’m being totally honest the formula is not my favorite because it feels slightly tacky and sticky on the lips but not enough to the point that it really bothers me. It can get quite drying after a few hours of wearing it and you definitely need to prep your lips with lip balm before applying or else it will settle into any lines and make your lips look way drier than they actually are. But what I love is how pigmented this color is, how evenly it applies and how nicely it dries down. I, personally, love a matte finish. It’s my absolute favorite and I tend to wear matte lipstick almost on a daily basis, which is why I don’t necessarily mind that it can get a little drying because a lot of matte lipsticks and especially liquid lipsticks tend to do so. However, if you do have very dry lips and prefer lipsticks which feel soft and moisturizing this one might not be the one for you.

As always I’m including a swatch of what the color looks like on my skin as well as picture of me wearing it.

Although I’ve tried liquid lipsticks with a nicer formula I love the color so much that it has still become one of my current most used lipsticks. The color is just so stunning and goes with just about every makeup look. Also I find that it is quite long wearing, which is why I love wearing it at work.

Have you tried any of the ABH liquid lipsticks? What are your thoughts? Which colors would you recommend?

Thank you so much for reading!

Love,

Sophie

    1. Thank you! I’m glad to be back. Thanks. I heard that the newer ones have a better formula and aren’t as drying so I might try one of those. Because I do think they have some lovely colors and great pigmentation. xx

    1. It really is a lovely color! I heard that their newer liquid lipsticks are supposed to have a nicer formula so I might try one of those and see if they are just as drying.
      Thank you for reading xx
