It's no secret that I love matte lipsticks, so when I was offered the opportunity to try out NYC Expert Last Lip Color's new velvety matte finish lipsticks, I jumped at the chance! I've got two of them to show you today, a very wearable bright pink and a lovely deep red.
One thing I will say about these lipsticks - the finish isn't totally matte and flat. It's definitely a velvet feel, but it's not matte. For my money, I like a velvety finish, even tho matte is my favorite. However, if you try these, just be aware. You are all going to be so surprised by this, but I like the pink shade better than the red!
Check out Velvety Fuchsia! I must say, of the two I received, this one is definitely my favorite. I think it looks great with my skintone, and it went on like butter. I had no issues with application, and the lipstick stayed in place!
...Unlike Red Suede. I had trouble with this one right from the start. It seemed thin and wandering. I couldn't even wear it very long because it feathered so badly. As you can see from my swatches it went a little everywhere... It's a gorgeous color, but it is very particular.
You can get these wherever NYC Cosmetics are sold - I usually find mine at WalMart, KMart and Rite Aid. This particular finish is available in 5 different colors. Price point is $1.99.
