Hey guys! I took some time off to do personal stuff last week, but I am back to bring you the battle of the matte lipsticks. I bought these lipsticks myself. The Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick was less than $10, but the pack of three NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream was $12 at Urban Outfitters. The opponents , Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick vs. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, fought really hard. Unfortunately I am not a fan of these lipsticks/lip creams. I was really intrigued by the colors and thought they would look great on, but the formula for both products is horrible, very drying, and peels like no other.
The Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick peeled less than the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, but they both looked horrible on my lips. The Revlon lipstick ended up flaking around the parts of my lip that always get wet by my teeth, and then stayed on until the next day after two washings on the outer edges of my mouth. I am very upset about this because I was really hoping to find a good matte lipstick for the spring since that is big beauty trend this season. All the matte lipsticks that I have found have been less than stellar. Hopefully I will find some soon in my favorite shades.
