If you open my bathroom draw you will be greeted by a giant pile of Pixi Beauty skincare products. I do not know what I would do without their cult Glow Tonic, Glow Pads and of course Double Cleanse by Caroline Hirons. Today however is not about the skincare, it is all about the latest launch of MatteLast Liquid Lips. There are 5 stunning, wearable shades available and I cannot wait to show you them.
From left to right we have Au Naturelle, Matte Beige, Really Rose, Pastel Petal and Evening Rose.You can see them better in the swatches below.
The doe foot applicator makes it really easy to apply a “lip line” first before then going in and filling in the rest of your lips. It is really cushioned and feels super comfortable on application. The lipstick formula itself is quite wet, you literally need to apply the smallest amount to achieve a bold colour finish. Let it dry and you will be left with perfectly matte lips that feel hydrated. I absolutely love the texture and have been really impressed with the longevity. I would let them dry properly to avoid smudging.
Here I am wearing Evening Rose on the left and Really Rose here on the right. I teamed Really Rose with a pink blush and it really made my eyes pop a sparkly blue colour. I think this is a close call for being my favourite matte pink lipstick. Evening Rose is a fantastic shade for Winter. I am really not keen on dark lipsticks as I don’t think it does anything for my complexion, but I was really happy with this one.
My total favourite out of all the shades is Au Naturelle. The peachy tones really suit my skin and this is something I would definitely wear on a daily basis. Normally I would just wear a lip liner, but with the applicator being so well made, there is no need for a lip liner before hand. I am that happy with these I am going to have a set for my bridal kit. These shades would suit a lot of my brides this Summer. The formula is so lovely therefore it would be silly to keep it to myself. The would only be one negative. The shades look darker and all more neutral in the packaging however when swatched they are far more vibrant and prettier. I hope this doesn’t put some of you off purchasing them.
