MEET MATT(E), THE NEW LOVER FOR YOUR LIPS
Liquid lipsticks have been on trend for a while now. Almost every make-up brand came out with their own version, from Bobbi Brown to the more budget-friendly ones. Warmer months are usually filled with glossy and moisture-rich make-up looks but since matte became the new moisture, it seems like this trend isn’t slowing down anytime soon. With that being said, let’s continue with my review of the new Kleancolor Mattes & Metallics from Shopmissa.com. Shop Miss A is a Texas- based company that provides cruelty-free beauty and make-up at only $1. These Kleancolor lipsticks are available in various stores and they can be bought as a bundle or seperately on Shop Miss A. “Miss A is a pet-friendly and animal loving company. We neither condone, nor support the selling of products tested on animals. While we do not manufacture the products we sell, we have confirmed with all of our beauty/cosmetics brands and they insist – they do not test on animals.” If you’re not into rocking a full metallic lip, you can also use them as a liptopper to make your lips look more plump when you focus the lipstick on the centre of your lips. My favorite trick when I’m on-the-go is blending a little bit of Metal Rose into a lipgloss, especially on humid days or days when I literally have no time to get ready at all and I need to be somewhere in like 5. Let’s face it, we’ve all been there. I just love sitting down to do my make-up, have a drink, watch Netflix and at the end finishing up my make-up look with a lip liner while being happy having a steady hand for once to get that flawless application. On most days, this is not the case at all.
THIS TIME BABY I’LL BE KISS(PROOF)
On the next few photos, I demonstrated how longlasting they really are. I couldn’t get them off by using just water as you can see. I used an old towel and a bar of soap to demonstrate what would happen when trying to wipe the liquid lipsticks off without an effective make-up eraser like Clinique’s Take The Day Off Balm. You can also see I rubbed pretty hard in order for the lipstick to move around a little bit. These ones are long-lasting without a doubt. They do tend to stain the lips but as I said, when using coconut oil or Clinique’s Take The Day Off balm this wasn’t the case. The scent is identical to coconuts. The overall application does vary by color. Some of the more brighter shades are a bit blotchy but this can be prevented by using a matching lip liner all over the lips before applying, and then applying 2 layers of it. Most of the colors I own are pretty opaque and solid, especially the browns and nudes. The formula is a combination between liquid and mousse, which I love. It’s not too thin but not too thick either. The formula can be a little drying and they aren’t completely matte, but they are matte enough to where it doesn’t really transfer, in other words, kiss-proof. They do last quite awhile, even after eating and drinking, licking your lips unknowingly, talking, etc. and the feel of the lipstick isn’t unpleasant at all. The only possible downside is that they feel a little sticky at first, but, once the liquid is completely dried down, it’s such a great product! If this bothers you in any wat, try blotting or using some translucent powder to speed up the process. Now, let’s talk packaging! The packaging is solid. It holds a normal amount of product, just like any other brand that makes liquid lipsticks. And it had a doe-foot applicator which I like. The wand doesn’t wiggle or bend, it’s just very stiff, which makes it easier for me to manipulate where I want the product to go. Kleancolor did an amazing job with these budgetfriendly liquid lipsticks, the shade range contains around 48 shades and 24 metallics and are a great option for those of you who are just starting out or those who want to experiment with different textures and colors (the have a bright metallic yellow and a hot purple) but don’t want to spend a lot of money.
