I picked up three of their matte lipsticks:
L-R: 911D Stoplight Red || 902C Bare It All || 907C Mauve Outta Here
Stoplight Red is a bright cool-toned red, Bare It All is a browny-nude and Mauve Outta Here is a bright almost fuschia pink with slight purple undertones. My favourite of the bunch would have to be Stoplight Red. Possibly a surprise to those of you who know how much I love my nude and pink lipsticks! I just feel that with matte finishes, reds or any darker colours are a such a classic. Bare It All leaned a bit too brown for my liking and honestly, I really prefer my lighter lipstick shades to have a creamier finish. Mauve Outta Here was ok- I expected it to be a lot lighter in colour, like a pinky-mauve but it turned out to be quite a deep pink.
I don't care for the light plastic packaging at all but I guess for the price you shouldn't expect much. I'm also not too fond by the fact that you can't twist the lipstick all the way down meaning that when you put the plastic cap back on, you need to be super careful not too bump the edges on the lipstick. Your cap can get pretty messy if you're not careful!
Can I get a YAY for lip swatches?!
Overall I really do love the colour pay off of these lipsticks and I do think they are worth it. Due to its matte formulation, they are long-lasting but also not the smoothest lipstick to apply on the lips. They wear quite well even after food too- Stoplight Red faded only the slightest bit after eating!
My tip when applying matte lipsticks is to make sure your lips are completely free of any dry flakes before applying and with darker lipsticks, use a lip brush to apply the lipstick for a cleaner edge and better precision.
- Really really inexpensive
- Great pigmentation
- Very long-lasting
- Variety of different shades to choose from
- Not too drying on the lips
- Bad cheapo packaging
- Not very smooth to apply
- Quite hard to apply more pigmented and darker shades without a lip brush due to the shape of the lipstick (it's more rounded compared to the usual. Don't know if that made any sense sorry T.T)
So if you're looking for cheap yet great quality matte lipsticks then I really do recommend them! I got these lipsticks for $2.75 each (not including shipping)!! Amazing price don't you think!? I got mine here FYI : )
Hope everyone's week has been great so far! I finished the final exam of my university degree EVERR yesterday so I feel pretty awesome : D I feel sooo free!!
