Disclaimer: I’m not a make-up guru. I also have limited knowledge on cosmetic products. But, I’m just happy to share with you that I finally found my perfect matte. Well, strong lippie shades and mattes are all the rage these days and there’s no way for me not to give it a shot!
I used to play it safe when it comes to applying make-up – just a pressed powder and magic lipstick, and I’m good to go. I even had a hard time letting go of my Ever Bilena Magic Lipstick which I’ve been using since my teenage phase. It’s my one and only favorite because it gives my lips a life in an instant. Magic nga eh. Haha. But then again, it’s always thrilling to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.
Searching for a new lippie love wasn’t easy as I’ve said, I barely know a thing or two about cosmetics but thanks to the super kind Watsons staff (my review here), I gave a nod to Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 004 Retro Red.
What I love about the product?
- Perfect matte finish and rich color
- Shade suits my fair complexion
- Easy to apply (perfect for a clumsy girl like me Haha!)
- Non-drying and long-lasting
- Affordable (scored it for only P350!)
To give my lips some breather and prevent possible drying or patching, I only use it on weekend trips and special occasions while my magic lipstick stays with me on usual weekdays at work. Have you found your perfect matte? 🙂
