Once I came back from the NYX corner, I immediately wanted to share my thoughts on this new product! Guys, it’s something!Packaging
: it’s a solid good quality plastic, which a click closure top. It’s so handy that the color of the lippie is the same as the heart on the tube. I won’t have to open up the lippie to see the shade.

Shade name: Lolita
Scent: the lipstick smells like candies and sweets.
Texture: matte, yet weightless.
The maker states that it’s suede. And it’s absolutely true!
Application: on the first go the pigment spreads well. It’s opaque and even. The sharp tip is handy for outlining my lips but, unfortunately, it wipes off over time.
Staying power: this lipstick doesn’t like it when I eat, due to the texture. It can’t live through even a small bite. I need to carry it with me all the time, so as to touch-up any minute.
A swatch under the daytime light:
Impressions: I’m obsessed with this product! The texture is so gliding and doesn’t require packing. It isn’t drying out for my lips and I don’t feel it present (it somehow reminds me of a Soft Matte Lip Cream). However, there’s a downside, the product isn’t transfer-proof.
I also want to note the Lolita shade for its interesting and unusual color. I don’t think that I will ever meet something like that among the affordable brands.
Overall: I think it’ll be a great option for those who can’t stand liquid matte lipsticks because of their drying formula.
Besides, the color selection of this collection is huge and bright, full of interesting and vibrant shades. Everybody will find a match there.
