Rouge Velvet The Lipstick by Bourjois

"I have fallen in love. These lipsticks are incredible - the pigmentation, the coverage, the staying power, the shades, the matte finish and for the price = best lipstick ever! These have to be the best lipsticks that I've tried in a very long time, and this is coming from a huge high end beauty junkie!The shades are all amazing - I have them all! The shades are perfect for A/W season and with lots of shades to pick from to suit your style or skin tone, there's something for everyone. They all suit my pale skin really well and I love the matte finish that is created after a few minutes when the lipstick dries on your lips. It's a super hydrating formula for a matte finish. They apply really smoothly and full coverage. The high precision bullet is incredible! You can really get the shape you want and line your lips with the lipstick sharply.I really love the packaging with how the tube colour is the colour of the lipstick... as a beauty junkie I have tons of lipsticks, and searching through them all is a mission daily to find a shade to wear, but with these you can see and grab straight away, knowing the shade of lipstick without reading names and opening up tubes.Highly recommend these!I received these lipsticks complimentary for testing « less" - superdrug.com user

Soft Matte Lip Cream by NYX Professional Makeup

"This has a matte finish but a feel to me, feels like a balm or a "cream". It takes a little long to dry down but it's good for those with very dry lips since it doesn't suck out too much moisture like the suedes or lingerie. Compared to the suedes, it's a little bit slicker and if you have problems with lipstick cracking, these won't do it. It takes a while to dry(I timed it at 20 minutes) and the finish LOOKS powdery matte. It isn't transferproof but the it hardly comes off on my fingers and never bleeds into my lip lines. The pigmentation isn't as good as some of the liquid suedes but it's very buildable. Interestingly enough, no matter how much I use at one time(1 thick opaque layer vs thinner sheerer layers), it takes the same amount of time to dry. My favorite usage of these is layering under and over liquid matte lipsticks that crack on me. My lips are naturally very hydrated so these provide a little bit too much hydration for me and slip a little toomuch. However, my best girlfriends with drier lips love getting these as gifts so I always give them some as little goodies. The last a lot better on them than on me. This product does break down with food but reapplication is very seamless and easy. It feels very lightweight(and sometimes slick) on the lips and lasts like a regular tube of lipstick.The color range is beautiful. I've bought some from the 1st release and the two times Nyx released more. It has a little bit of everything and I hope Nyx continues releasing more fun shades like a black or a green or a greige. One of my favorite shades is London which is a bit too nude-brown to be a MLBB unless I sheer it out but I like layering it with other(too matte) lipsticks to warm up and tone down a neutral color so it's more like a MLBB terracotta color. It's a little bit more brown and less red/pink than Abu Dhabi. Stockholm is less brown/nude and is brighter. All these shades are gorgeous, I just wish retailers had testers for all the shades since it's a bit of a guessing game. The true color is only found once you open them since the outside is a thick opaque plastic that doesn't necessarily match what it's supposed to be Less" - nyxcosmetics.com user

Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick by Maybelline

"Today I was in a chemist and I had a small bit of money and wanted to buy lipstick for a party I was attending to match a new dress (in case the dress didn't fit [it's not important why the dress wouldn't fit]) and I wanted something that would be long lasting and non-transferable as I didn't want to be touching up all night after food and kissing...so I scoured the aisles and stumbled across this (originally I was looking for the Revlon lip crayon things but they were all sold out except for the bright orange which doesn't suit my colouring!) and figured I'd give it a go. I sampled a few colours on the top of my hand and I can say that it's been 12 hours now and I've tried makeup remover, toner, soap and water, essential oils and just plain scrubbing and there are still outlines of 3 different colours I tried because they stick to your skin that well. I ate food, drank from a variety of hot and cold drinks, kissed my husband repeatedly and my lip colour didn't budge. I was able to re-apply the lip balm and my lips never felt dried out (and I am ridiculously sensitive to lip products and always aware of chapped lips as my lips are prone to splitting) so this is possibly a miracle in a tube. I am genuinely befuddled that it is so cheap and why it isn't the most popular product on the planet. It stays on my lips for ages, I can make it shiny or matte...there are a variety of colours and as someone prone to feathering from a wonky lip line in one particular place (the bane of my existence as someone who loves super moisturising yet highly pigmented colours!) and I think I've found the solution. Yes quite possibly the LONGEST REVIEW EVER but I am one uber sheepish beauty snob. Definitely the last time I stop eschew my chemist beauty counters for department and specialist store only...look what I've been missing!!!!!!! « less" - lookfantastic.com user

Matte Liquid Lipstick by Morphe

"This IS an amazing sexy perfect shade red! I saw it on Jaclyn Hill and knew it would look just as good on me since I’m blue eyed and can get fair like her but it also goes on tanned skin. It’s hard to find a bright red that isn’t too blue or too brown or too pink or too orange. This shade nails it. Everyone should have this universal shade. It’s the perfect pin up pout red and I can’t wait to wear it this summer or the right occasion. It feels great on and not at all drying or heavy. Sheer velvet. LOVE! " - morphe.com user

Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick by L'Oreal

"I was a little bit skeptical about trying L'Oréal's new liquid lipstick at first but I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did try it. I went with the color plum and it looked fantastic on me. Love the packaging, this lipstick comes in this slick soft clear tube and the applicator has a different shape to it. The applicator's head pointy for precision application and also oval with a hole in the middle. Putting this liquid lipstick on right the right way is key, so make sure you don't mess it up. L'Oréal /infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick is well pigmented and stays on the lipstick for a very long period of time. I put it on before I went to dinner and didn't have to reapply it at all. I then decided to go for some drinks elsewhere and by the time I got home my lips still looked the same. The only thing with this lipstick is that it doesn't dry out right after you apply it. Also it will feel sticky for a while before it feels completely dry and you start forgetting about it being on your lips. All in all, compared to other brands and other products, L'Oréal did a great job with this liquid lipstick. My lips don't feel dry after a long day and it is definitely one of my favorites so far. P.S. Make sure you have make up remover with you whenever you want to take it off, otherwise it wont come off :) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="2480653329971433821-full" data-show="2480653329971433821-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - lorealparisusa.com user

Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor by Revlon

"Loved loved loved this Lip Color. The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse Hyper Matte was absolutely fantastic. The formulation was unbelievable. It has an amazing thick consistency. It goes on so smoothly, has a mousse like formulation and it's highly pigmented. The shade I tried on was Death Valley. It's a gorgeous mauve color. The finish of the lip color is a true matte. It doesn't feel drying on the lips. Considering it is a matte lip color, it wears comfortably on the lips. I wore it for hours and wears beautifully. It was extremely long lasting. It lasted for hours without any retouch. The packaging is exquisitely designed. I can easily take this lip color along with me in my bag and also easily fits in my back pocket. Great for traveling. I own a couple of these and I'm continuously adding to my ever growing collection. Less" - ulta.com user

Mad Matte Lip by Clio

"This is a very flattering color. I'm always hesistant when it comes to picking lip colors online and was afraid this color would be way to bright, but it's the perfect pinky peach shade and looks very pretty when blended out. The consistency of this lipstick is liquidy which makes it feel very lightweight on the lips. The color is opaque and not super matte -a little goes a long way. Overall I am in love with the formula since I have chapped cracked lips ALL the time. This is a comfortable lip product and I would def repurchase in other shades! " - yesstyle.com user

Color Statement Matte Lipstick by Milani

"All in all I found these lipsticks to have a wonderful creamy texture and great pigmentation. Overall their opacity was great with one exception. They applied very easily and smoothly with no tugging skipping or pulling and felt good on the lips almost a bit silicone-y (which I really like). They did not feel drying at all though not particularly moisturizing either and they did not seem to accentuate lines in the lips. Like all matte lipsticks they definitely require prior exfoliation because they will catch on dry spots (some more than others). Compared to the original Color Statement lipsticks these are more creamy and silicone feeling while the originals have a slicker more balm-like feeling to them. I've tried Naked Blissful Orchid Passion and Glam. Passion is the least opaque though still very pigmented and full color and Glam is the most patchy though not unbearably so. I'd say they are well worth the price though and great lipsticks overall.";"";""" - walgreens user

Rimmel x Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick by Rimmel

"I received this lipstick free from Influenster in exchange for my honest opinion. I really like the fact that this lipstick on application had a creamy texture, which made it very easy to apply to my lips. I noticed when I initially opened this lipstick it had a nice smell to it. The color I got was a rich muted pink of which I do not currently have in my make-up collection, so this was something new to me. I'm not sure it's the right shade for me specifically, but I will try it with several other combos of make-up to find the best look. The variety in the color choices is very good. 15 shades to be exact. So everyone is sure to find a color that suits them. I believe this lipstick is long wearing. Even after eating and drinking there was still noticeable color on my lips. And it seemed to moisturize my lips well. Overall, I think it is a good product and if you are looking for something new to add to your make-up collection this could be it. I think I will be checking out and purchasing a few new colors myself!" - walgreens user

Matte Lip Color by e.l.f.

"These products are phenomenal. I have never been much of a lipstick person, but occasionally I'll wear a red lip for a special occasion. During my initial courtship with Elf products a few months ago, I decided I'd buy a few of them and give them a shot. And I'm so happy I did! I've been collecting them ever since.First of all, let's talk product quality/application, and then we'll get to the specific colors. The size of these lipsticks are awesome, especially for someone with small lips like myself. It helps make application much more precise, which is always a bonus in my book. They are also a very light finish. One of the reasons I've never liked lipstick is because it leaves my mouth feeling heavy and tacky, but not these ones. I hardly notice I'm wearing anything. The color is long-lasting, and even though some of it may rub off on, say, a coffee mug, it's does not seem to affect the appearance on your actual lips. What's coming off is the excess color, but the majority of it is staying put. Now that being said, I do use a lip exfoliator and chapstick a little while before I do my lipstick (I have not tried the Elf lip primer, but it's one of the next things on my list to buy!) and I also use the Elf Makeup Mist & Set spray on my final look. This routine has helped me with avoiding creasing in the fine lines of my lips and in prolonging the life of the color. I drink a lot of fluids throughout the day, so I do have to touch up occasionally, but not nearly as often as I would have to with an average lipstick.Now, the colors. I own Nearly Nude, Natural, Tea Rose, Coral, Hot Commodity, Rich Red, and Wine. I find myself consistently reaching for Coral, but they're all beautiful colors. I have noticed that Nearly Nude and Natural don't seem to be all that different from one another, but all skin types are unique, so that may not be the case for someone else. Tea Rose is a beautiful light pink/purply color, but just not my favorite for my skin tone. Coral is a gorgeous, subtle pink. Perfect for putting a little bit of color in your lips. Hot Commodity is SUPER hot pink, like Barbie-style. It's a stunning color, but perhaps too girly for me! I rarely use it alone, but instead tend to add a dash of it to Natural or Nearly Nude to soften the boldness a bit. Rich Red and Wine are both amazing shades of red, and are easily my go-to red lip. They are beautiful and long-lasting, and, at least for me, require less frequent touch-ups than their lighter-colored counterparts. If I could get away with wearing a bold lip every single day, I would use these all the time. But I still see red lips as a special occasion shade, so I don't wear them as often as I'd like to! That being said, I prefer Wine just a smidge more than Rich Red, because it is a tad darker and more dramatic.The best part about all of these colors is that you can experiment. I've mixed a few colors just to create some different shades, and the results are always pleasantly surprising. I can't wait to get Cranberry (come back in stock soon!) and Praline.This was an extremely long review, but I know how difficult it can be to shop online, so I wanted to be as specific as possible. I hope I've helped someone who was on the fence about purchasing!Pictured: Rich Red, Coral, and swatches of the ones I own (left to right: Nearly Nude, Natural, Tea Rose, Coral, Hot Commodity, Rich Red, Wine) « less" - elfcosmetics.com user

Matte Lipstick by NYX Professional Makeup

"I love this lipstick. I wear only red lipstick i've tried pretty much all brands that are under $20 a lipstick. This is my fav lipstick so far.I was like its $6 it can't be that great i was so wrong. This lipstick lasts longer than any lipstick i've tried that wasn't a 24 hour wear i hate those 24 hour wear they flake off and make my lips feel like i put dry wax all over them. I will say this lipstick is somewhat drying but it has to be for the lipstick to last. All those glossy lipsticks only last about 10 mins or once you eat or drink this lipstick pretty much stays in place when i eat or drink only the inner part of my lips need a touch up it depends really on what i'm eating most times the lipstick stays in place after i eat and i don't have to touch it up and sometimes i have to do a touch up. But i can put this lipstick on and it will last hours without a touch up without eating or drinking of course. If you use a straw when you drink you won't need a touch up at all most ladies i know who are crazy about lipstick only drink with straws so they won't ruin their lipstick its a great cheat to have to make your lipstick last for hours while you drink. I will say i have tried you what most women do to make their lipstick last longer i blot it with a tissue and add some powder on top and when i do that it lasts all day with me eating or drinking it makes your lips feel really dry though. As a person who has been wearing lipstick pretty much 24/7 for the last oh goodness how long has it been 15 years or so this is my fav hands down. I really love the revlon matte lipstick it was the best until i found this one but the revlon matte is my second fav after this one. The revlon matte isn't as drying but it also doesn't last as long or hold up as well as NYX but thats because it does have a little gloss in it so your lips won't feel as dry so if you don't like this NYX matte lipstick try the revlon matte it costs a little more and it won't last as long as the NYX but if you want something not as drying then thats your best bet. But i just add a little eos lipbalm on my lips when my lips are a little chap and add the NYX matte lipstick on top and that keeps my lips from not feel as dry it does make the lipstick not last as long but it helps with the drying. If you want a lipstick to last all day it is going to dry out your lips if you want a lipstick to make your lips feel and look shinny it isn't going to last and it becomes messy when your hair gets in your face and so on. This is the best lipstick i have found that's under $20 i have it in every shade of red they have and i never leave home without this lipstick. It doesn't bleed,it stays in place, the shades are true to color for the most part for the reds they are true to color i don't buy any color but red so i don't know about the other shades always look at them at the store to be sure. I just can't see how anyone who wears nothing but lipstick could hate this lipstick. If your a lipgloss kind of girl then you probably won't like this its thick,bold and heavy coverage because its matte. If you like light coverage in lipstick then don't get this. If you want a strong, bold lasting lipstick then this is for you. « less" - ulta.com user

Lip Lingerie Push-Up Long-Lasting Lipstick by NYX Professional Makeup

"Nyx did it again with a great lip product. When I received this I didn't think much of it. I'm not really into opaque lip products on my lips, I go for more tinted lip balms and just chapsticks and stuff. But I can't deny a good lippie when I try one! First things first, the product is smaller than your typical lipstick which is good and depending on the price, bad (if it's the same price as a regular lipstick that's double the amount of product). Ok so when I applied this it was so easy to do. It is velvety when applying, even though it is matte and doesn't have a bit of glossiness, it is surprisingly effortless to draw on and so smooth looking. I usually have a hard time with perfectly shaping it on my lips but the shape and size of this makes it very simple to do. Lip liner is not necessary, this stuff is kind of a big lip liner in of itself, it's rich, stays on and doesn't move a inch. Even after drinking there was close to nothing on my cup. Plumping wise, it does have a cool kind of minty feeling on the lips, not that uncomfortable burning spicy feeling some have. It's quite the opposite, actually. Really I'm just astonished at how nice this looks on my lips! I really don't like lipsticks on me that much but this stuff looks amazing. The pigmentation is really good so if you are one to overdraw your cupids bow or anything this will look really nice. When I try that with other lipsticks you can totally tell that I'm overdrawing them. Honestly this lipstick is the closest thing I've seen to acting like a liquid lip without being a liquid lip. The product also has a sharpener on the bottom end so you don't have to worry about it going dull. All in all, I will definitely be wearing this a lot and I'm even thinking about buying more shades. (I received the shade Push Up.) Less" - nyxcosmetics.com user

Color Riche Ultra Matte Highly Pigmented Nude Lipstick by L'Oreal

"L'Oreal Paris holds the secret on our make up goods. I wanted a lipstick that would smooth on like gloss but not wipe off, I found it with Colour Rich Lip Color. I wanted a lip stick that would last all day so I wouldn't have to reapply all the time, again, I found it with Colour Rich Lip Color. I wanted lots of colors to choose from according to my mood for that day, L'Oreal Paris didn't let me down. L'Oreal Paris invented a lipstick which would glisten and shine. Full of micro oils, this lip color ends dry lip problems. I was given the wonderful opportunity to test several different shades of this product as a Glamspotter for Glamour magazine. A group of my girlfriends got together and I had them pick out their favorite shades, here is the run down. #103 Harmony Blush was everyone's top pick followed by #304 Ruby Opera and lastly #202 Coral Encore.

"Must understand me when I say I don't like it. The product ITSELF is really good. If you love matte lips, you will LOVE this. Matte is just not for me I found out. I am not experienced with matte lipstick so I got one to try, in the shade Sunday. It is gorgeous, a great color, long lasting, pigmented, all that jazz. I just don't prefer matte, that's all, I'll stick with creme. I don't review on preference, I go by quality. The quality is there, and the shade is really true to color after it dries down. It's also easy to remove. What I'm saying is, I don't really like it, but that's not the product's fault or ColourPop's fault, it's my natural preference. That doesn't mean the lipstick is bad. If you're a matte lip person, you'll enjoy it, I think." - ulta user

It is a bright color, but the metallic sparkle softens it and makes it wearable day or night. I have received so many compliments on it. After I purchased this I found the NYX Lip Primer Base Pencil.

Dreamy Matte Lipstick by Palladio

"I was looking for a cream blush that gave a pretty glow to the cheeks and could also be used on the lips. As a new mom, I am on the hunt for make-up products that simplify my routine and are easily used on the go. This fits the bill. I wanted a nice blue based pink color and Tenderly turned out to be exactly that. I also like the packaging because it enables me to apply the product without using my fingers or a brush, minimizing bacteria transfer or the need to carry an additional item in my makeup bag. It does not stay long on the lips but I wouldn't imagine that it would just because I assume the ingredient needed to make it a long wear would make it hard to blend on the cheeks--which is my problem with Benefit's lip and cheek stains. As far as staying power on the cheeks goes, it lasts about as long as my other powder blushes, 8 or so hours. It also applies well under or over face powder with is a plus as I have oily skin and usually need to apply some sort of powder. It seems as though it will last awhile as it is fairly pigmented and only a small amount is needed for noticeable color. If you are looking for a glowing, no glitter, non matte blush, cream blush, this is for you. « less" - Sephora user

The Only One Matte Lipstick by Rimmel

"Extremely pigmented and ridiculously hydrating, these lipsticks are not only beautiful but also contain anti-oxidant and vitamin infused ingredients. The formula of these lipsticks remind me a bit of the MAC Lustres but much more hydrating, they impart a slightly glossy finish to the lips which is nothing short of gorgeous.I love that this lipstick can be applied sheer but can also be built up to a fully opaque color. The range includes 18 shades, from beautiful nudes to brilliant brights. The shade I have is "As You Want Victoria" is a cool toned, vibrant pink with just a slight hint of red. Rich and radiant, this color not only attracts attention but demands it.With skin benefitting ingredients including anti-oxidants and vitamins A, C & E, not only is this product beautiful but it also aides in keeping your lips hydrated and protected. That being said, Rimmel's Moisture Renew range is quickly making its way up my list of favorites and I can't wait to pick up some of the nude shades!The only negative aspect of note is the floral smell/taste. I wouldn't say its overly fragranced and it didn't bother me while I was wearing it. However, if you're sensitive, you should know this product does carry a scent.Overall, I think this product is lovely. A quality lipstick at a bargain price. Rimmel is certainly stepping up to the plate and giving brands like L'oreal and Cover Girl a run for their money. « less" - rimmellondon.com user

Round Case Lipstick by NYX Professional Makeup

"Snow White is my HOLY GRAIL red! It's blue based but still looks heavenly on my yellow toned skin. The depth this color has is perfect for offsetting my light coloring everywhere else. It manages to be both flattering and bold as well as wearable year-round. I'm very pale but also have blonde hair so the lovely bright reds everyone loves just didn't work for me. I'm so happy to have a red that I can finally wear and look glamorous in! As for formula, SW is a dream. Opaque in one swipe, but two gives you a deeper color, it feels moisturizing on my lips, and doesn't bleed a whole lot so if you forget lipliner you aren't in too much trouble. However, because of the hue you will def. need to use a lip brush for this one. It lasts a pretty good amount of time too, which impressed me due to it's super creamy texture. I always apply, blot, and apply a second time and regularly get a good 6 hours (4-ish if I eat or drink heavily) without needing to re-apply. The only con, these lipsticks have a kind of "soapy" scent. It's not a big deal to me, as it goes away the second you have it on your lips, but it is noticeable when you have the tube open." - walgreens user

Plus, I felt like normal lipstick looks odd on me because my lips are usually dry and applying lipstick makes them look terrible, no matter how much I moisturize them. They're also naturally very dark and pigmented so most shades just don't show up nicely on my lips (I'm sad I can't do nude!). So with the matte trend, I figured I'd give it a chance. And I am so pleased! The matte masks the "weirdness" of my lips, since matte is obviously more on the dry side. I picked Touch of Spice and it's a gorgeous color. I have very fair skin and I've found darker shades compliment my skintone more. It glides on smoothly and feels very lightweight.My only issue is the lasting power. You accidentally touch your lips and you'll see lipstick on your finger. Drink some coffee, lipstick stains the cup (naturally). Eating and drinking causes the color to fade way too quickly. I had a 50 minute class, drank a small amount of coffee in my car beforehand - which faded the color ever so slightly - but by 5pm the color was completely gone from my lips. I hadn't even done anything after that initial drink, not even lick my lips. Not sure where the color went. Wouldn't have been a problem if I didn't forget the lipstick at home; no big deal doing a quick reapplication for boldness.So, I would love to see this lipstick eventually become more resistant. Though, I'm obviously still a lipstick newbie so I'm not sure what is normal and what is not. Perhaps I'm thinking of lip stains for more resilience. Either way, will definitely be repurchasing in other colors! This is the first lipstick that doesn't make me feel self conscious about my lips when wearing one. Maybe a nude will work on me with the matte formula! Very excited to experiment. « less" - maybelline.com user

Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color by Rimmel

"I received this on a VoxBox, and I'm glad I did, because this liquid lipstick is AMAZING. It feels really light on my lips and it's not super drying. I lile the formula a lot: it dries down really soft, and it is super pigmented. When applying it's not patchy which is a pro. The wand its really nice too. I would buy for sure.

Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream by NYX Professional Makeup

"I wasn't initially sure about a product claiming to be both matte and metallic. I really like the regular soft matte lip cream though, so when NYX sent me a sample to review, I was excited but unsure. I got the product in the color Copenhagen, and I actually love it. It applies just like the non-metalic product, smells good, has nice coverage and does actually dry matte. The metallic quality is subtle unless you're in the sun, which is what I'm looking for. It dries a little tacky, but is pretty transfer proof and stays on pretty well even when drinking. My favorite thing is that when it fades it fades pretty evenly so I don't have to be self-conscious about whether the middle of my lips are naked and the edges still covered. Over all a great product, and I'm looking for more colors. Less" - nyxcosmetics.com user

Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick by Maybelline

"I just recently started getting into wearing different lip products and experimenting to try and find a shade that suits me. I have to say the Nude Flesh is perfect for me. I have always loved Nude colors and always tend to go for the more natural look. It is great having a shade that goes perfect with any season and style. It has a natural, elegant look to it that is great for just lounging around or going out. The Rebel red shade I have to say knocked my socks off. I honestly didn't know what to think until I applied and took a look in the mirror. I have no problem sporting this sexy shade of red. It goes PERFECT with my completion and skin tone. I have always been scared to try vibrant colors such as Rebel red, but not anymore. This product smashed that fear to bits. I love the soft, silky texture that applies on evenly and smoothly over my lips. I really enjoy how you don't have to apply much to get that perfect look and the color last all day. If I want a bolder shade of color, I just put on another coat. This product isn't thick like similar products, so it doesn't feel like I have stuff caked all over my lips and it doesn't leave a really oily feeling either. It has the perfect combination to leave my lips feeling beautiful and moisturized. It smells really pleasant too unlike other products that I have tried that have a funky smell. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to add a pop of color to their style or if you're like me and just want to just complete a more natural nude look. I had the wonderful pleasure of testing Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid for free in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion. All opinions expressed are 100% my own." - ulta user

Matte Lipstick by ULTA Beauty

"I wasn't looking for a new lipstick when this one came my way. I've been in a serious relationship with the Ulta Lip Crayon for a while now (Sugar & Spice for neutral, Daredevil for bright red lip). This came in a gift set with another purchase I made at ulta.com. I do love trying out new products, so I eventually grabbed it & tried it on one day. I didn't think anything of it, as I layered it with my Sugar & Spice lip crayon. I liked the color, so I kept doing this for a week. Then, I finally tried it alone. When I looked at it in the mirror, I realized it was MATTE! (Since the lipstick just came in a gift bag, it wasn't labeled so I just figured it was a regular lipstick). I avoid buying matte lipsticks, even though I love the look, since they tend to be drying. This wasn't drying. It doesn't last all day, but I don't mind re-applying lipstick every few hours, so that's nbd for me. It just looks great (pigmentation & matte look) & isn't drying. That's all I need it to be. I am Indian-American, of fair skin tone, and have the one called 'Basically Berry'; it goes well with my skin color, but is not as brown as it appears online (it's more of a brownish red w/ some violet undertone). I've added it to my favorites. « less" - ulta.com user

Matte Lip Crayon by ULTA Beauty

"This is a smooth lip crayon that is basically a lipstick. It is a creamy satin formula. I chose the Sedona Sands color. It is a neutral pinky nude. It lasts a long time, although it is not a "long wear" product. It does not stain the lips or dry down. I have quite a few of these types of products, from revelon, nars, laura geller, nutrogena, urban decay, clinique, and bite beauty. I like how it does not have a strong scent or flavor. I dont have to sharpen it and there is no sparkles.This brand has a great formula. I like how i can rely on them to not dry my lips out, and always be a comfortable lippy. I will try the Niagra one next. For a drugstore item it seems expensive but if it were at a prestige section it would be way more expensive to be so good. " - ulta.com user
