How many matte lipstick do you own? If you’re anything like me then it’s probably more than the number of fingers on both hands. Why would I possibly need anymore?!, I say to myself as I um and ah over which lipstick to wear for the day, like I’m picking a chocolate from an extensive chocolate box menu. Nevertheless when my favourite skincare and makeup brand Rodial said they were launching three new matte lipstick pencils, I simply had to try them.
Aptly named suede lips, there are three colours to choose from; Rodeo Drive – a vibrant orange red, Melrose Avenue – classic nude, and Big Apple – burgundy berry.
I decided to go for Big Apple (even though I would happily have them all!), as it is the perfect shade for Autumn.
When I first went into the store to have a look at these, I was told I would be hard pressed to find a softer, non-drying matte lipstick then these. That I would want to keep applying and re-applying it is that soft, but there would be no need, as the colour was so long lasting.
This is when I embarrassingly scoffed and probably rolled my eyes. How foolish did I feel!!
The second I applied the Big Apple, I was in love. It really is suede soft, the colour and coverage amazing and a true matte lip pencil, no semi-matte here! I wish I could truly get across the velvet feel of suede lips and I didn’t suffer from a hint of dry or flaky lips. The pencil is also easy to use and all it needs is a quick sharpen (lucky, as I wear this pretty much daily, it’s disappearing fast) and you’re good to go!
All the colours are really versatile as well, perfect for any occasion and a variety of complexions. What’s even more exciting is there’s a fourth colour due for release very soon, and I for one will be first in line.
Addicted? me?!, Never!!!!
