Do you love matte lipsticks? I do!
Matte coverage is super trendy and it has been trendy for a long time already. I guess that only the laziest cosmetic brand hasn’t come up with their own collection of matte lipsticks and hasn’t shown it to the beauty world.
The brands compete with each other in their attempts to create a masterpiece and perfection.
So, have you already found your ideal matte lipstick? Or you’re still looking for it?
Here’s the Nude Matte Lipstick from Anastasia Beverly Hills for you.
Well, I guess there’s no need for me to tell you about the brand. It’s so popular in the country as well as abroad. Recently the brand pleased us with their new matte lipsticks collection, which has 30 shades in there.
I have a mini of the lipstick which I got from a set. I bought it just to test it out. Lately, it has become a tradition for me to buy minis, if they are available of course, rather than splurging on a full size at once. I don’t want to waste my money in case I don’t like the product. So, the minis first.
The package of the mini looks exactly the same as the full-sized product. The full size comes packed with a separate cardboard box, while here I had 4 babies in one pack.
The product comes packed with a small plastic tube with a black top and black and golden bottom.
The brand name is engraved here with the golden logo along the front of the top.
The product opens and closes with a click. The top sits tightly and never pops open.
The basement is also adorned with the brand logo.
The product comes out nicely all the time.
The texture of the lippie is lightweight and gives thick coverage that doesn’t show my lip pigment at all. The formula doesn’t leave streak finishes and always applies evenly and well.
The finish is always ultra matte and really gentle.
The wear time of the products is great. They stay on from 3 to 5 hours (it all depends on whether you eat or not). The performance the lipstick shows on my lips is fantastic. It doesn’t crease, settle into the fine lines or bleed.
The product can easily live through a bite, cup of tea, and coffee with a cookie. Well, beware of the greasy food. If you eat it, then the lipstick will stay only at the contours of the lips.
The lipstick is a tad transferring, however the stains are barely detectable. The lippie isn't drying for my lips. It doesn't tighten them during wear, as well as after that either.
As for my sensation with this lipstick on - for me it feels as though there’s no lipstick applied over my lips at all! It’s so cool to apply this lippie on my lips and forget about it!
The Kiss shade of the product is a grayish-muddy nude, which looks different depending on the lighting.
By artificial light, the color seems to be darker and brighter, while the daylight reveals all the tenderness and the beauty of the lighter color.
It isn’t an issue for me to wash the product off my skin. I can do it with any makeup cleanser indeed.
I usually apply the lipstick with a brush over my primed and moisturized lips with a lip balm or a lip oil. (about 5-7 minutes before the application of the lipstick).
You can apply the lippie without a lip liner, if you use a lip brush and keep beautiful contours. If you prefer right from the stick application, then a lip liner is a must here, because it’ll be difficult to outline your lips with the stick evenly.
This is a good lipstick which has good quality and it’s definitely worth your attention.
I recommend it!
