Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte

IMG_9099

Liquid matte lipsticks have been all the craze lately! it’s hard to find that perfect long wearing formula, that won’t entirely dry out your lips at the end of the day. Make Up For Ever decided to give the trend a try with their new artist liquid matte lipsticks!

I received 3 colours in the shades 103(Warm Beige),105(Rosewood), and 109 (Praline).

These lipsticks are for people like me, who love an ultra matte finish, and no sheen whatsoever with the help of mineral clay, and kaolin powders in the formula. The formula promises to wear all day, without transfer which I have to say is very true! The formula stayed put on my lips after eating greasy foods, and did not transfer onto surfaces like traditional liquid lipstick which I was very excited about.

Swatch for Praline and Rosewood

The lipstick comes in mainly neutral, but highly pigmented colours, something for every skin tone they dry down to the true colour which is nice. The formula is smooth, and very creamy as it has avocado and glycerin to keep hydration. Although my lips did become dry at some point in the day, I did reapply, but it was not nearly as dry as my lips have been before when trying to keep on a liquid formula.

Overall, a great addition to the battle of liquid lipsticks!

I’ve been looking for a very long time for an oxblood colour from NARS that was completely matte, and without hints of brown like shades in their pure matte collection. I finally found the perfect colour of deep red in one of the new colours from called Endangered in my favourite lipstick formula, the Velvet Matte pencils! I received Endangered Red, Famous Red, and Do Me Baby.

I have written the praises of NARS velvet matte lip pencils before, but just a re-cap, the formula is one of the smoothest I have put it. It glides easily, and is also multi purposed as it can be used as a lip liner as well!  I am super excited for the 10 new colours they released, with everything from a very hot pink called Let’s Go Crazy, to Unspoken, a deep navy, there’s something for everyone, and new colours to try!
