Pros: completely matte formula, creamy texture, doesn’t stain dishes or clothes, good quality, long-wearing, thick coverage
Cons: dries out my lips

Usually I don’t wear lipsticks on a daily basis at all. But still I couldn't pass by this beauty and decided to buy these two to add to my collection. After watching a thousand of Insta videos about these lipsticks, I immediately had an impulsive desire to buy it for me too. So, here they are! And now I’m a happy owner of the two shades of the trendy American branded lipstick in the colors MOOD and SAND.

As for the shades, here my logic worked the following way - I needed one neutral-looking shade, which is SAND actually and I also wanted to buy an accent shade, which turned out to be the MOOD one. I hoped that at least one of them would become a Holy Grail for me.



The tube is made of a matte semi-transparent plastic with a shining applicator wand. At first it even looks as though made of glass. It was packed in a cardboard light and stylish-looking box with the name of the color on. The applicator is soft and furry, it’s a doe-foot applicator by the way. One swipe of the applicator is enough for one lip.

The texture is creamy and I like how pleasant it feels on my lips. The color is very beautiful and saturated.

I was really afraid that the lipstick would dry out my lips, so following the beauty bloggers’ advice I always do a hydrogel lip mask before this lipstick application. It applies very light and delicately. It doesn’t set immediately, giving you enough time to correct the mistakes if needed. The coverage looks thick and saturated with the pigment. At first the lippie feels creamy on my lips when wet but then within 30 secs or so it starts to dry down turning matte and there isn’t any glossy finish anymore. The product doesn’t tighten my lips or make them cracked.




The MOOD shade

Oh, this is my fave. I expected it to look more evening-like and languishing. But in reality it turned out to be bright.




The SAND shade

Honestly, I expected it to look different. I thought it’ll be more pink-like and fair but in reality it looks too honey. This shade doesn’t suit me, but I guess it’ll look killer against darker skin tones.



Impression of use

I’ve got only positive impressions of this product. It stays on my lips for a long time and doesn’t fade after a meal or a drink. The product doesn’t budge or bleed, of course unless you intentionally rub it with your finger. The only gripe about it is that after some time of wearing, the formula starts to dry out my lips a little. But I was ready for that. Once I wore this lippie for a party and it felt very comfortable while wear and looked stunning in the pictures.



Well, that was a really important experiment Smile The lipstick is REALLY long-lasting. It doesn’t come off with a face cleanser because it just budges and that’s it. What’s more, it creases if I try to remove it with a micellar water. It looks as though it’s possible to remove the product with the micellar water, but still, in this case, I have to rub my skin a lot then, which is so unpleasant.



But once it touches something fatty - a cleansing milk, for example or a dual-phase makeup remover, the lipstick quickly becomes obedient and totally washes off.


I’m raving about this lipstick - wear time, pigmentation, matte finish - this is all about it. The discomforting feeling of dryness is minimal for my lips. Moreover, I don’t wear it everyday, it’s a kind of “special event” lipstick for me. I highly recommend everybody try it out.


I bought each for $13 in an e-shop. But now on the official site it costs $15-16 for an item. But I also saw them cheaper on eBay.
