I'm here to share a couple (literally), Be Matte Lipsticks from the brand City Color. I only have these two to start with but after my experience with these, I'm certainly looking forward to trying more. The shades I picked up are Queenii and Kelly. Hope you enjoy the swatches and pics.
First up, Queenii:
|Soft Flash, Flash & No Flash.|
Swatched over Jordana Lipliner in Sexy Mauve and Lined with L.A.Girl Lipliner in Deepest Purple.
Next up is Kelly:
|Soft Flash & No Flash.|
Swatched over L.A.Colors Lipliner in Natural and Lined with Jordana Lipliner in Cocoa.
And just for reference, I compared it to Wet n Wild's Megalast Lipstick in 'Spiked with Rum'.
|Soft Flash, Flash & No Flash|
I wore Kelly out the other day for a makeup appointment and it lasted well until I ate. Also too, my lips aren't completely smooth; I have the little lines, and it did separate into them a bit. Texture-wise they are definitely matte, not as matte as MAC's Retro Matte formula, but it does tug at the lip a little during application. With that said, I love the formula and would definitely seek out more.
I got mine at Wonderful World Trinidad for TT$15.
Stay safe & God Bless Hermosas!
