If you’ve followed my blog for a little while, you’ll know a few things about me. Two of the most iconic facts you have to know is I love Fenty Beauty so much, and nude lips are my favourite.
Gone are the days of yore, wearing £1 tea tree concealer under a Lancome Juicy Tubes in Marshmallow, forget about brushing on Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse and then setting it with powder, I’ve glowed up.
When a lovely lady from Fenty HQ at Harvey Nics contacted me to ask if I’d like to try any of these shades, I just knew I had to sample some rude nudes. Look at all the cheeky names!
I’m not as brave as my lovely friend Craig, who purchased, reviewed and absolutely rocked Midnight Wasabi. So I selected Up 2 No Good, Single and Freckle Fiesta.
This is Freckle Fiesta, isn’t it pretty! The Mattemoiselle lipsticks are described as “An ultra slim lipstick with a long-wearing, petal-soft matte finish, created in a rainbow of 14 weightless, colour-intense shades each designed to flatter all skin tones.”
The only colour I’ve wear tested yet was Single, described as a blushing nude. It went on so soft I was quite shocked, I’ve had matte lipsticks in the past which have really dragged and felt unpleasant to apply. Considering the really creamy application, the matte finish looked great. There was no dryness or flakiness during wear which is always a bonus with matte lips, and it didn’t feel uncomfortable to wear either. My only complaint is there was a lot of colour transfer to my glass when I had a drink, and it stained someone else’s lips during a kiss! Shockingly though, it didn’t effect the colour on my lips which was great, and it lasted a couple of hours which I think is great for a bullet lipstick over a liquid matte.
Swatched left to right is Freckle Fiesta, Up 2 No Good and Single. I’m so happy to have these lipsticks in my collection now, I’m very tempted to head out and purchase Spanked a “dusty rose”, that just sounds beautiful to me!
