In this blog post I am reviewing two matte lipsticks, one that worked for me and one that didn’t live up to the reviews. I chose to review the NYX Matte Lipstick and the Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick, just a little disclaimer I have nothing against either of these brands and just because the products didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for everyone🎀💕
First the Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick, I brought this from Beautybay, and it cost £16, I had heard amazing things about this product and really wanted to try it but at first I wasn’t sure about the price but I ordered it anyway. I ordered the liquid lipstick in the shade Celebrity Skin and was quite excited to try out the product! The description on Beautybay was that the lipstick is lightweight and long lasting. I tried this product out and was impressed with how lightweight it was as it didn’t make my lips feel heavy at all. As for longwearing well I would disagree, I moisturised my lips before and put Vaseline on to prevent the lipstick drying out and this is what I do for all my lipsticks so had to give it a fair test and well I had to top up this lipstick about three times and it cracked slightly after not topping it up quick enough but I was quite impressed overall, also just a little comment about the creator himself, I don’t support any of the actions Jeffree Star has done and I disagree with him on his comments etc but I wanted to try his makeup brand as many good things were being said about it. Anyway overall I rate this product a 8/10 as it was long wearing like it claimed💫
Next the NYX Matte Lipstick, I brought this for £6 from boots but I can’t find the link so I will link the NYX store instead, NYX, I fell in love with colour as it was a really light plum colour and was very Matte. I wore this the day that I bought it and it lasted all day, I had to top it up probably once throughout the whole day and I was majorly impressed by it! The lipstick dried on my lips quickly and for the price it is amazing quality! I love this lipstick and can’t wait to buy more in the future, overall I would rate this product a 10/10 as I only had to top it up once and dried really quickly so there was no smudges etc.
Let me know in the comments what you thought and if there is anything you would like me to review🎀💕 Until next time, Beccy x
