A lipstick that is taco-proof? Shut up and take my money!
Vive Cosmetics is all about Beauty con Cultura. I heard a ton of buzz about their liquid lipsticks a few years ago and my friend Ruby highly recommended them as well. But when I heard about their “Taco Proof” liquid lipsticks, I knew I had to try them out.

About Vive Cosmetics
Vive Cosmetics was founded by Leslie Valdivia and Joanna Rosario. Located in Northern California, the Latina owned beauty brand was
Created to celebrate our love for all things beauty and cultura in one place
-from the Vive Cosmetics site.
They started their brand when they noticed the lack of Latina diversity in the beauty industry. Yet Latina consumers are one of the largest groups in the beauty space. In all the beauty marketing, Latinas were never represented. Leslie and Joanna wanted to change that. Their Latinx/a brand celebrates different Latin cultures to be heard and seen. They love giving back to the Latinx community and make sure to work with Latina/s and POC based companies to help their business grow; from photographers, makeup artists, and designers. They are known for their lipsticks but now also offer a great contour & highlighter duo along with some fun makeup accessories.
I had the pleasure of meeting Leslie and Joanna last year at We All Grow and they were super nice and down to earth. I’m glad that we are finally starting to see more Latinx/Latina Beauty brands emerge! Don’t forget to see some of my other favorite Latinx small business shops to shop during Latinx Hispanic Heritage Month.
Que Matte Liquid Lipsticks
To be honest, this is not my first time purchasing their products. About a year ago I purchased one of their liquid lipsticks to try out and loved the shade. Then a few months later I saw they were rebranding and updating their packing. Once I saw their new packing I knew I was gonna have to place an order asap!
Also they have released newer shades in the past year. I ended up purchasing the shades “La Patrona” and “Maria”. They have 9 different shades to choose from. The Que Matte Liquid Lipsticks are extremely long lasting, cruelty-free, vegan and made in the USA. They are known to be Taco and Beso (Kiss) Proof! It is very tough to find a good long lasting lipstick that won’t fade the minute you eat or drink anything. Also can we just have a moment to talk about their packaging! The bright colors and the gold graphics are just stunning! I love the color they chose, you can not miss this hot pink color in your purse.
This is one of their newer shades and I absolutely loved this rich shade! This shade is great all year around. It has a warm red jewel tone that also looks amazing on many skin colors. The applicator makes application super easy. The product is really opaque so you only really need one coat to last you all day.
I have purchased this color before and loved it! It became one of my everyday lipstick colors. I knew I had to get another one, still the same long lasting formula. This color is great for the fall season but I tend to gravitate to this color year around. I highly recommend these long lasting liquid lipsticks especially if you love wearing lipstick but have to wear a mask. These lipsticks will not budge.
Cremosa Matte Lipstick
These Cremosa Matte Lipsticks had great reviews so I had to get a few to try out. I was really impressed with the formula. I knew they were not gonna be as long lasting at the Liquid Lipsticks but I was impressed with how moisturizing it felt on my lips, but left a matte finished. They also offer 6 different colors to choose from.
Mija is a nice neutral tone lip color. Before applying, I thought this color was going to wash me out but once applied I was surprised on how beautiful this shade was on me. This is a great for a natural everyday lip color.
You know I can not pass up a good red lipstick. This red has a warm/orange undertone but applies very smoothly on the lips. I can definitely see myself wearing this when I really want a pop of color to my makeup look.
I definitely recommend checking out Vive Cosmetics. The quality of their products is outstanding and I always love supporting local businesses that have quality products. These lipsticks will stand out in your makeup collection. Honestly Vive Cosmetics has a shade for everyone. Check our their Instagram for daily Latina makeup and beauty content!
