I tend to stick to more neutral tones when it comes to lip products, or a nice plummy shade. But I have something slightly outside my comfort zone to talk about…and I actually really like it.
When Born Pretty got in contact with me asking to pick a few things out I knew I really wanted to try out a lipstick of some sort. I was browsing through and saw the Matt Sense Lip Stick Neutral Cream Moisture Gloss* (longest name I know). I was a bit confused as to whether these were matte lipsticks or creamy ones but I picked the shade 06 anyway as it looked like a lovely pinky/plum shade; something I wouldn’t always go for. When it arrived I was a little surprised to see how bright the shade looked in the bullet. I tried it on, and I was pleasantly surprised to see it wasn’t a matte formula but a creamy sheer one instead. The shade comes out as a very pinky purple shade on the lips, but doesn’t look overpowering at all, it actually is a very subtle bold lip if that were ever a thing, haha!
This lipstick is so super creamy which I really love, it doesn’t go patchy on the lips either which is always a bonus! It also has fabulous lasting power – I actually swatched this on my hand at first and it took me forever to get it off! I haven’t worn this for a full day as of yet but I was impressed with the lasting power after a few hours of having it on my lips. A small top up after a bite to eat or drink and you’re good to go. I’m going to a concert in a few weeks and I think I’m going to wear this there due to its subtlety yet vampy vibe. Also another thing to add – the packaging is so sturdy! I was really impressed with the quality for the price of the product! There are 12 shades to pick from in this range, from reds to dark plums!
