NYC – Matte Lip Lacquer.
Hey guys! Today another lippie review! I was looking for an orange matte lip color, and I found this one from NYC! Today I’m gonna tell you guys what I think of it, and show you how it looks!
I saw a picture of someone with an orange matte lipstick, and I thought WOW! I need that! I always go for red colored lipsticks, orange is something totally different, but very interesting to try!
Here it is! It looks a bit on the red side on the photo, but I swear it looks bright orange! It’s called; Expert Last Matte Lip Lacquer, and it is in the color “830 Thompson Matte Tangerine”.
When I opened it, it had a very strong smell, and I don’t really know what I should think of it! It smells like a very fake orange scent, a little bit like cheap scent markers! I don’t really like it…
I did a swatch on the back of my hand first. The color looked amazing! Very bright and very orange. I was a bit surprised that it didn’t dry up like most of the liquid lipsticks, so I don’t think it’s eat or kiss proof! Although it says matte on the packaging, it does have a slight sheen to it.
Here is a swatch on my lips! Up close it definitely looks orange, but from a bit further away it looks more red, so that a bit of a pity! The application went not too well either. It is very velvety, and it was kinda a struggle getting the lines straight. It does feel very nice on the lips, because it’s not drying them out (that’s a very big plus for a girl like me with very dry lips). The staying power is decent, not amazing, but it does its job well. Even when it rubs off a little, it leaves a slight tint to the lips, so it didn’t really bother me that much!
- It smells awful in my opinion.
- It is not expensive, so very budget proof.
- The color is nice and bright, but sometimes it looks more reddish than orange.
- It doesn’t apply very well.
- It’s not drying and feels very nice on the lips.
- It doesn’t stay on a whole day, but it does leave a slight tint.
- It’s not completely matte, it does have a slight sheen.
Although this product has its cons, I do really like it color wise and feel wise. I hope you all liked this review, and I will see you all next time!
