Who doesn't love a good matte lipstick? And what's better than affordable matte lipsticks? I feel like really matte, non drying lipsticks is an area that the drugstore struggle with. Well not SEVENTEEN, they've just dropped their new Mega Matte Lipsticks*, that really are amazing!
I have 5 shades:
Rojia You're World
I was super excited by this shade. It's a beautiful deep, Wine colour. This would be a great autumn winter shade. It's really creamy and applies opaquely in two swipes. And it really is mega matte and not drying at all. It did last a long time, around 4 hours before the wear was noticeable. I'm sure this will be a staple winter shade for me.
Roses are Red
This shade is a lovely bold, Orange toned, Red. I'm loving these kind of shades this summer. This only took one swipe for a fully opaque finish. I did find this a little dryer than the others, but nothing to stop me from loving the lipstick! This didn't wear evenly though, the colour broke down around the middle, but it was really easy to touch up. And this is also very similar to Urban Decays Vice lipstick in the shade Temper.
I Lilac It A Lot
This is a pale Grey, Lilac colour. This shade really doesn't suit me and made me look a bit ill. But that aside the formula is really nice. It glides on the lips with ease and sat comfortably for a good few hours (well, until I needed to leave the house so I removed it!).
Back To The Fuschia
Love the name of this! And as the name suggests it is a bold Fuchsia Pink. Because it's Blue toned it also makes my teeth look super white! The formula is, again super creamy, comfortable and long lasting. I think this would be great on a night out.
This is a Violet Purple that has a slight metallic finish, which is strange considering it's supposed to be matte. But I actually really like it. I'm really into the whole metallic lip thing that's really in at the moment. And despite this being so far from the Brown toned nudes that I really like! This would look great for festivals. It applies so easily and is softer in formula than the others. It's also slighter sheerer but easily buildable.
Overall, these lipsticks are amazing considering they are £4.49! If affordable matte lipsticks are what you're looking for definitely head over to nearest SEVENTEEN stand. There is also a few nudes in the collection that I plan on getting.
