review: maybelline creamy matte lipsticks.

maybelline reports that matte lips are back, based the makeup looks from spring 2014 fashion week. to me, they never left.  matte lipstick is cool-girl sophisticated.  shimmery and shiny lips can end up looking sloppy and smudged, while matte stays defined.

the key to a good matte anything (lip, nail, skin-finish) is avoiding look dry and chalky -- hence the brilliance of a creamy matte.  the formula is hydrating enough that it looks satiny, rather than powder-y (which would exaggerate my already-cracked, dry, winter lips).  plus, the pigment rich colors have pretty good longevity, i got a few hours of wear from one application.

even though i love the formula, my favorite thing about the lipsticks are the colors. the variety of shades are so vibrant that it looks like barbie's lipstick collection!  available in 10 colors,  $7.49 at mass retailers.
