Zara has launched some of the most comfortable and weightless matte lipsticks I have ever tried.
The fashion brand recently dropped it’s Ultimatte and High Matte liquid lipstick collection along with matching Line It Up lip liners.
You can check out the review on the Behind the Scenes Kit to see swatches of one the Line It Up lip liner and the Hi Matte liquid lipstick.
The lipsticks came in a very colorful box with each lipstick containing 0.12 oz.
The lipsticks all have that uniform navy color with that very soft to the touch packaging that gives you traction and allows for easy grip.
All the ultimatte lipsticks are only good for 6 months, unfortunately, so you’ll have to make sure that you use them up regularly.
All the lipsticks were highly pigmented and and had a slight candy like smell to them. They were also very creamy and easy to apply.
Knowing that these were selected by Pat McGrath, they make an awesome budget friendly set with great quality.
They are however, not the best long lasting lipsticks that I have tried. They do provide some type of moisture for being a matte lipstick but they also do transfer as well.
You’ll have to make sure that you carry it with you to reapply as needed throughout the day.
Both the Behind the Scenes Lip Kit and the Ultimatte Trio Kit contain the shade UM01.
Whether you’re aa makeup junkie who just loves to hoard lipsticks or someone who is just looking to get into lipsticks, this is a perfect set to try as it contains universally flattering colors that should compliment most skin tones.
There is a neutral, more girl next door shade as a well as a bold berry shade that makes statement. They’re all super pigmented and moisture rich and perfect to wear in the cold and drying winter months.
As mentioned in one of my previous posts, Zara just launched a new makeup collection that has got everyone excited, including me. So when you go shopping for clothes make sure to pick up a couple makeup items because Zara is starting to look like a one stop beauty shop and I’m living for it.
The collection was also hand picked by world talented makeup artist, Pat McGrath herself which made me want to try the collection even more. If I can get the same quality as Pat McGrath’s lipsticks for a more budget friendly price then I’m all in.
The collection features creamy bullet shaped matte lipsticks as well as liquid lipsticks and lip pencils.
I purchased two of the lip kits Behind the Scenes as well as the Ultimatte Trio which I will be reviewing at a later time.
The Zara Behind the Scenes Kit contains a lip liner L02, an Ultimatte Lipstick UM01 and a liquid lipstick in the shade M11.
The bundle came in a beautiful navy colored tin like can that was unique and high end looking. I like that this container can also be used to store other things down the road or for decorative purposes.
Zara’s brand is known for simplicity and I like that when it came to the packaging, the simplicity was reflected in that as well.
The lip products were all neatly packed inside a mold so they could not move around. Behind the container was more of a description about the lipsticks included as well as the ingredients, net weight and the shelf life which is unfortunately 6 months.
Everything was luxurious about the packaging including the lipstick containers. They were very soft to the touch almost like a high quality rubber which also allowed for easy gripping.
Zara Line It Up Lip Liner L02
This is a satin lip liner that is very soft and creamy.
The shade of the entire set is like a rosy brown nude color. At least that is how it swatched on my skin tone which I have to say complimented it really well.
Zara Ultimatte Lipstick UM01
What I love about the kit is that it eliminates the guess work. Everything in the kit worked well with each other. You can use the lip liner under both the lipstick as well as the liquid lipstick.
The lipstick container is soft to the touch with a magnetic lid that tightly snaps on so that your lipstick is secured and you don’t have to ever worry about your lid coming off.
The lipstick is of similar shade to the lip liner and has a candy smell to it.
I also did notice that there were little bits of condensation or water droplets on the lipsticks which could’ve probably come from the ingredients.
The color looked like it had a tad bit more pink to it but still gorgeous.
Zara Hi Matte Liquid Lipstick M11
The liquid lipstick did not have any scent at all compared to the delicious candy smell Ultimatte lipstick.
This one again is in the same color range.
I do have to say that this liquid lipstick was also very creamy and made the application easy. The doe foot applicator picked enough product to give you full coverage with one swipe but I did layer mine multiple times to get the full impact.
Overall the kit is very helpful especially for someone who is just getting into wearing lipsticks. There’s absolutely nothing to figure out about the kit because everything compliments each other.
What I also love about the kit is that the shade will be fitting to most skin tones. It’s a fun nude with a little pops of mauve and pink.
If you’re thinking about trying out Zara’s new makeup collection I highly recommend it. The quality is amazing and the price is unbeatable.
The holidays are here and many of us are still struggling to put our outfits together for family dinners and get togethers and haven’t even started on makeup.
The good news is that Stila has got you covered in the makeup department, well the lipsticks for the most part. The Stila ‘Kiss Me Stila’ Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set features three amazing colors that you could rock this holiday.
There is also a ‘Nude Atttitude’ Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set if you’re not into wearing bold lip colors.
The Kiss Me Stilla Liquid Lipstick Set features two matte red shades with one in a metallic finish and a nude color.
The colors included in the set are Beso, Beso Shimmer and Dolce.
Stila is a brand that many of us have loved from the start. They provide some of the creamiest, weightless and long lasting lipsticks on the market that can compare to no other.
Finding the right shade of nude lipstick is a never ending challenge that many women can relate to. The Stila Nude Attitude Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick trio is a great way to test out different shades to find one that compliments your skin tone.
We can all agree that Colourpop is one of the most budget friendly brands out there that offer quality products. This is a brand that I could surely purchase from all day long and if they were to ever go away I would never be able to stretch my coins the way I do right now.
If you agree and if you’ve got a minute, then you’ll want to keep on reading.
I’ve tried quite a few drugstore lipsticks but el.f. wasn’t one of them.
My usual purchases from e.l.f include brushes, contour and blush set as well as their lip balms and lip exfoliators so yeah, I have to admit that to me it’s a decent drugstore brand as I frequently purchase their products.
New to my list of e.l.f products is their liquid matte lipsticks. They come in eleven different shades and I purchased four of them online from Ulta.
Like many, finding the right shade of nude lipstick is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Pretty much near impossible. At one point they even had us checking out or nipples for the right shade. That’s how serious this nude lipstick situation has become.
The cosmetics industry has come a long way when it comes to perfecting a nude shade that will compliment most skin tones. I’ve created a list of my favorite nude lipsticks that weren’t necessarily perfect but got pretty close.
We all know of those nude lipsticks that make us look like we just walked out the cemetery but the choices from this list did everything but that. Some may need a little bit more tweaking than others with some lip pencils but these worked out great for me.
