With only a couple more days to spare of 2015, who would have thought I’d discover a new lipstick that I’m immediately ga-ga over?
Yep, it was love-at-first-sight with the mark. Lipclick Matte Full Cover Lipsticks. This little tubes won me over immediately with their small, purse friendly size and how bold the shades seemed. Don’t be fooled, though, you’re getting an average amount of lipstick, just without excess packaging that makes all your other tubes taller. Another pro about the tubes is that the tops close with a magnetic *click* to keep them secure.
The shades available currently are Siren: a classic cool red, Vixen: a deep purple-toned berry, and Starlet: a hot fuchsia pink. All have a pretty matte finish that really makes the color pop. Despite being matte, though, these are actually really creamy, moisturizing, and lightweight enough to make me forget I’m wearing lipstick at all. A combo like that is rare, and when I find it, I’ll wear it down until it’s a nub every time.
All three of my shades go on completely opaque in one swipe. The pigmentation that came out of these little lipsticks blew me away. What’s more… the color lasted hours. It looked the same as when I first applied for about five hours, then faded when I ate a meal. Even still, they will leave a nice stain behind so you’ll retain a bit of color even after it’s faded.
It takes a little bit of time to set right after applying, since they are so creamy, but once they dry down into their matte finish there is very little transfer. Also, just like any other matte lipstick, I suggest exfoliating your lips prior to application.
The little mark. Lipclick Matte lipsticks are only $11, and money well spent for the quality you’re getting. You can also check out the original line of Lipclicks, which have a luminous finish. I’m crossing my fingers that they expand the matte line quickly with even more shades! Although, these three will do as we transition from winter to spring trends… I might even experiment by mixing them together!
Which is your favorite shade from the new matte line?
