Why is it when you have one of the biggest makeup collections out of all the people you know, you still play it safe with the things you choose to wear? This is basically the story of my life with the amount of lipsticks I own… until Pixi Beauty very kindly sent over five of their MatteLast Liquid Lipstick’s earlier on this year. If you asked me a few months ago what my favourite nude was, I’d have given you the typical “MAC Velvet Teddy” response, but I’ve finally replaced it with not only one, but FIVE new nude lipsticks.
Au Naturelle, Matte Beige, Pastel Petal, Really Rose, & Evening Rose
The Mattelast Liquid Lipsticks are cruelty & paraben free, hydrating with a matte finish, long wearing, comfortable to wear and infused with rose-hip oil. Basically, the perfect liquid lipstick on paper (can you tell I’m in full Love Island mode?). The lipstick takes around 2-3 minutes to completely dry down to that matte formula and lasts ALL day long without flaking, crumbling or drying out my lips. My biggest fear when picking up a liquid lipstick after spending far too long doing my makeup is that it will only look good for an hour before it starts fading and flaking away… with the Pixi Mattelast liquid lipsticks there’s absolutely no worry about that since they last for hours at a time without feeling uncomfortable, needing to top them up or any flaking ruining the look.
The pigmentation of these lipsticks are A M A Z I N G, let me tell you that… One swipe and I have the desired shade without having to build it up. I’ve found that with a lot of the nudes I’ve tried in the past, they tend to either look too pink on me or too light that I’ve just decided to rock the foundation lip that day – the colour pay off with these lipsticks mean I no longer have to worry about either of those situations. It also means they last all day long with little-to-no top up, with only the expected fade in the middle of your lips from talking, drinking and eating.
I’ve never ever come across a lipstick with an applicator anything like the Pixi Mattelast Liquid Lipsticks – it’s completely unique with a pointed tip for precise application. We seriously need all brands to start using the same doe-foot applicators because its changed my life. I get my lipstick spot on each and every time with no mess ups and restarts, it’s revolutionary!
All of these lipsticks are as described: universally flattering and wearable. I don’t know how they’ve got it so right but they have and I’m diggin’ it. I’m all for Pixi bringing out every shade possible in this formula in the future because they’re amazing! If you’re on the look out for some new liquid lipsticks I completely and utterly recommend these by Pixi, they deserve so much more hype.
