I fell in love with NARS Pure Matte Lipstick when they launched the MLBB (my lips but better) lip shade Montego Bay and later for Summer, Moscow fell into my possession and yet again I fell in love with a matte lipstick. Now NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Amsterdam has landed on my desk and yet again, I find myself falling even deeper in love with this formula.
I dunno how but NARS somehow convinced me that matte is a rather nice finish.
I’m just not a fan of cream lipstick. I find most creams drying and the longer you wear them the more moisture they suck from your lips. When there isn’t anymore moisture to suck out they go for your soul! It’s deadly.
No..but seriously. I also get lip crumbs from cream lipstick. Lip crumbs are those little flaky gross pieces of lipstick that float around your dry mouth. It’s not pretty people.
Too Faced La Creme Lipstick changed how I feel about creams. They’ve managed to create a moisturizing cream formula that looks and feels incredible on lips.
I realize I shared my love of the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick in a recent review but I hauled a few more shades so I thought I’d do some more swatches and a little follow up post about these.
A reader recently mentioned hauling Cotton Candy Pink (believe that’s the shade name) and didn’t like the formula at all. I personally loved all the shades I tried so I was surprised. But actually, she’s right, the consistency on some of the shades is a bit different and I ran into issues with Blushing Sequin as it wasn’t as lovely as other shades I owned and loved.
