Sure, we loved our festive reds and party-ready nudes for the holidays. But the new year is all about making an entrance—and for that, we have to swipe on our vampy lipsticks. We can’t think of a better way to ring in 2018 than with a bold pout and a killer smile. Can you?

Below, we test out a pair of liquid lippies that give us all the attitude. For extra oomph, give these babies a try!

SPLURGE: Sleek Makeup Matte Me in Vino Tinto, P450 Every one of Sleek Makeup’s Matte Me lipsticks is the stuff of liquid-matte dreams: they go on ultra creamy and rarely require a second coat. Their highly pigmented formula sets fast, settles into a non-drying matte finish, and lasts for hours despite its lightness. All rare things to find in liquid lipsticks, but especially when you’re scouting for darker tones! Our wicked pick? Vino Tinto, of course—an intense, deep berry that will give you lips like fine wine.

SAVE: Detail Matte in Detail Liquid Lipstick in D4 Sabrina, P225 For something that’ll turn heads without emptying wallets, there’s Detail’s Matte in Detail Liquid Lipsticks. If we thought the Matte Me’s were smooth, these may as well be water for how smoothly they glide on the lips. They also give off a very slight fruity scent, like sweet cherries. Boasting kiss-proof and waterproof status, these mattes come in a range of super pigmented shades for every occasion. If you’re in a witchy mood, go for Sabrina. A dark magenta at first swipe, you can easily layer this to go full femme fatale.
