I don’t know exactly who invented matte lipsticks but I am really thankful they did. It definitely created a real madness. These days (almost) everyone has (or wants) a matte lipstick. For a rather long time, I’ve had this idea that if they are matte, they are not good for your lips, so I just refused to try one. Until a few months ago.
Avon Matte Lipsticks
I just received my order from AVON and I’ve also got a swatch of a pink matte lipstick from AVON’s new collection – I tried it and … I fell in love with it! Although they are matte, they are creamy and they don’t dry your lips (like I used to think). The package is stylish and elegant: matte black with a silver stripe. And the best of all? It lasts all day long! I could go an entire day (9am to 6pm) applying it just in the morning.
So, I ordered one of AVON’s best lipsticks (in my opinion). The first shade I chose was Adoring Love. A cute pinkish color. Then I wanted a red lipstick as well, so I’ve ordered Ravishing Rose. Finally, a few days ago I received my last order: another red lipstick (shade: Ruby Kiss). And now I have three different shades which I absolutely LOVE!
However, the weak point of this collection is that there is only one darker color. If I were able to decide, I would have added a few more and even a “crazy” color, like black, purple or blue. But the only darker shade is Berry Blast, which is still a cool shade so, I think that would be my fourth lipstick from this collection.
It is said that they are competing with MAC’s matte lipsticks, which are known to be the best. I’m not sure if they really are that good since I never tried those from MAC. So I cannot make a comparison, but I can say that these are a great, cheaper alternative.
What do you think? Have you tried any of these?
P.S. As you can see in the image, together with my lipsticks I’ve also ordered a LUXE foundation with protection factor for those sunny summer days and a nail spray which helps the nail polish dry faster.
