Hello hello my lovelies! As you might already know, I always enjoy trying out and testing lipsticks, especially ones that look very promising. The LÓreal Matte Lipsticks is no exception. Pretty packaging is always a plus, and even though these ones have a more elegant feel to them rather than girly and cute, they are still eye-catching. Matte black and gold detailing are a very good match!
As presented above, I am going to do an honest review of those five colors that range from light nudes to deep brown and more. Holidays are approaching quickly and I really can’t think of a better time to so some make up updates! Besides, it’s always loads of fun to try out new products =D
#703 – A gorgeous pink nude. Perfect to use for natural make-up looks, as it’s definitely not too bold. It’s downside is, as you can see on my lips, that the color is not as prominent when you wear it. The tube definitely makes it seem like a deeper color.
#712 – OMG, this one is VIBRANT! If you’re kind of gal who needs a bold fuchsia lipstick in her collection, this could be a great choice. I feel like it even gives the effect of plumper lips!
#800 – A nude shade. Unfortunately, the color payoff on the lips is not very similar to the shade in the tube. It has a pinkish undertone, and you might want to add more coats to make the color deeper.
#802 – A deeper shade of nude! If you want something a bit more pigmented than the previous one, I suggest you go for this shade. Again, the color in the lips is not as strong as it is in the tube, however, I think it looks quite cute overall!^^
#804 – LOVE this one! It’s deep brown color and I was very surprised on how good it looks on the lips. The ideal color to rock during those autumn days. This also probably has the most matte effect out of all the lipsticks in this collection.
As I mentioned in the beginning, I think the packaging has it’s strong point as it looks very elegant. There is also a good way to differentiate them, as they each have a specific signature. For example, #703 dubbed “Eva’s Pink” has a golden signature on it.
COLOR PAYOFF: 7/10
The lighter colors didn’t look as strong on the lips as they did in the packaging. You might have to apply one more layer if you want the full color effect, especially with the light nude ones! However, the fuchsia and deep brown tubes were very pretty. If you’re looking for the extreme pigment and matte effect, this collection might not exactly be your cup of tea. Those lipsticks are subtle, everyday colors that will give a natural vibe to your look^^
My favorite is number #703, it’s that perfect MLBB shade that’s perfect for everyday wear. For fall, my favorite is definitely #804 – it screams chic and can “dress your face up” even if you’re wearing minimal makeup!
Which is your favorite shade? Any new lippie loves lately? Please share!
