Temptu Color True Lipstick

Temptu Color True Lipstick ($24) is right on trend for Fall 2015 in a range of eight creamy shades that will get you the perfect sophisticated matte finish on lips for the season ahead. I know, I know, you’re all about Summer right now and you’re not wanting to wish it away. But honestly, Fall mode has been activated over here in Muse-land and I find myself wishing away the warm weather away for the crisp coolness of a Fall day!

For Fall 2015, you’ll likely notice a good deal of the Spring 2015 contouring trend making a come back and along with a perfectly sculpted face and a nude eye look you’ll find that matte lipsticks are coming back full force.

Matte lipsticks have long since evolved and the formulas are a lot friendlier than I ever remembered them being. Seriously, matte was just such a nightmare finish several years ago. It was dry, it dragged during application, and it just wasn’t as pleasant an experience as it is now. Many brands have launched lighter, creamer, easier to wear formulas and Temptu Color True Lipstick is one of those formulas. It’s also a formula that stands out from the rest.

Find out why!

I admit I went into my testing of Temptu Color True Lipstick with trepidation. I have drier lips and I tend to avoid matte lipsticks as they cling to drier areas or tend to fall into the natural lines of my lips. Granted, if you do the prep work mattes are workable and will look lovely. But sometimes, in the morning, when you’re running around with little time to spare you just wanna twist open a tube of lipstick, apply, and go.

That’s exactly one of the many reasons I loved the Temptu Color True Lipstick formula. I don’t have to apply balm prior to applying this formula, I don’t have to exfoliate my lips, the color just applies smooth, even, and perfect every single time. This texture is amazing and an absolute joy to apply and wear.

This is a very light, thinly formulated matte lipstick with a very creamy texture that glide on lips like butter. The formula has a velvety texture and a true matte finish that doesn’t adhere to dry areas nor does it settle into finer lines. Each lipstick is color rich and drenches lips in pigmented, opaque color with a wear of six hours without fading, migrating, feathering, or drying out. It’s a slightly weird thing when you apply your lipstick in the morning and you’re half way through your day and it looks like you JUST APPLIED IT! That’s the experience you get with this formula. Color remains incredibly intense through the wear and although they Color True Lipstick isn’t moisturizing, it isn’t drying either. I find the texture very comfortable, completely weightless, and never tight or dry feeling and most important it isn’t sucking moisture from my lips.

Temptu is long since known for their airbrush products and their Color True Lipstick comes across as flawless and perfected as their airbrushed products. Color is smooth, seamless, and gives the appearance of being painted on lips. It’s just a very flawless matte lip look without a ton of effort.

Temptu Color True Lipstick is testimony to a brand being able to branch out and try something new and successfully succeeding in that new area. Temptu has long since been know as a company that provides fantastic airbrush products but I don’t think it is a brand you’d associate with single makeup product releases and that’s where Color True Lipstick starts to think outside the box. If Temptu could do this much greatness with a matte lipstick one wonders how they’d do with powder blushes, eyeshadows even, etc….!

If you’re embracing matte lipsticks for Fall 2015 or you’re just a matte lipstick lover I’d highly suggest checking out Temptu Color True Lipstick! This formula is pretty amazing!
