Swatch Party Friday!: $1 AOA Studio Wonder Matte Liquid Lipstick

Hey, it’s payday, and you’re looking to treat yourself after a long week of not flipping every document on your work desk and throwing the computer out of the window. Of course, that treat is going to be makeup (what else would it be), but what do you choose?

Swatch Party Fridays are here to save the day! After watching ThatGirlShaeXO perform dozens (if not hundreds) of live swatches on her face it inspired me to do the same all in the name of helping you find that next holy grail item.

Every week I’ll swatch a product on my arm and respective application site (minus glitters because, at the end of the day, I love myself too much to do that to my face). I hope this growing swatch catalog of my own personal collection will help you decide if it’s meant to have a home in your check out basket.

After all, what better way to celebrate the weekend than with makeup? I’ll wait…

AOA Studio Wonder Matte Liquid Lipstick


These dollar lipsticks come in 24 shades and have a powder matte finish. All listed lippies had fairly even application minus the blue shade - which would do better with it’s accompanying lip liner (also $1!).

There is a faintly chemical smell to them (which is not my favorite) but generally speaking they’re a pretty good bang for the buck - especially for shades less frequently worn.
