Fall is coming! And that means my matte lipstick addiction comes back full-force! (as you will see in this post). Time to get those mauve, berry and red shades from our vanities ladies! Read on to see what are my current favorites for the upcoming season 🙂
Essence Matt Matt Matt lipstick in shade 02 Perfect Match. I love Essence, they have so many really high quality products that are real cheap! I adore their Matt lipsticks, they’re really longlasting – on my lips they stay pretty much as long as the Mac one’s do – about 7 or even 8 hours. The color is nude pink and the formula is not drying to the lips at all. It’s creamy and light on the lips and the color payoff for all the lipsticks from this range is brilliant.
MAC Mehr is yet another Mac lipstick that I adore and don’t know how I could live without this one before 😉 It’s a matt formula that’s really creamy and applies on the lips easily. The color is a warm mauve that’s really universal and will work for many skintones. The shade is not overpowering and you can use it for day looks with delicate makeup and works just as well with really bold eyes. Love it!
Swatches L-R : Rimmel Lasting Finish 107, Wet n Wild MegaLast in Spiked With Rum, MAC Mehr, Guerlain KissKiss in Baby Rose, Essence Matt Matt Matt in 02 Perfect Match
Wet n wild MegaLast lipstick in Spiked with Rum – another range of lipsticks that stole my heart! MegaLast lipsticks are super creamy and glide on the lips like a dream. It’s another matte (sensing a pattern here?) and the color is really hard to define! In daylight I would say it’s a pinkish brown color, but under artificial light it looks to me darker and gets much warmer tones. Wonderful pigmentation, with just one swipe you get great color payoff, does not dry the lips and lasts for hours even if you eat or drink and it does not bleed.
Guerlain KissKiss lipstick in Baby Rose is a cool rose pink with lots of gold shimmer. It’s the lightest and most delicate one of the bunch, it looks glossy on the lips and is quite sheer (finally something not matte, right!?). The golden particles catch the light in a truly lovely way. I read some reviews that the lipsticks feels a bit gritty on the lips because of the glittery parts, I guess I kind of feel it but it does not bother me at all. I adore the packaging of these lipsticks, it’s so chic!
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in shade 107 is a berry red with cool undertones. It’s a matt lipstick (not again! Sorry I’m a matt lipsticks junkie!) I love the color, it’s the perfect berry red shade for me, looks really good on the lips. The pigmentation is also really good, the formula can feel a bit heavy on the lips. I like the scent of the lipstick. The only downside is you have to remember to reapply it, because after a few hours it tends to fade not in a pretty way – it can leave patches, though not always. I forgive it though because I completely adore the shade.
