I was super bummed when these matte lip creams sold out the same day they released before I got a chance to order them. When Ulta made the post about carrying them on their website, I literally ran for my credit card, jumped on their website, and loaded my cart. (Super lip junkie over here!)
I was able to get my hands on 5 of the colors which is fine because I have lipsticks very similar to the others.
They cost $6.99 each, which is a bargain compared to the ones selling for $20 or more.
I chose the colors “Sway”, “Tea & Cookies”, “Stone Fox”, “Vintage”, and “Sand Storm”. All together this line has 12 shades to choose from.
The consistency of these lipsticks definitely is creamy. They are a bit heavy, causing them to take longer to dry. If you are applying more than one coat, I suggest you not blot or close your lips together until the lip cream completely dries. I made the mistake of doing this, and it transferred unevenly and caused the color to look clumpy, and have gaps. (See swatch of “Sway” to see what I mean, it’s the purple shade.)
These are very long lasting and non-drying. For flawless application, exfoliate your lips, and remove any lip balm or chapstick that you applied prior.
My favorite shade is “Sand Storm”. It’s a perfect everyday nude.
If you pick some up let me know your favorite shade 🙂
