Beauty Blvd, the brand behind insta worth Glitter Lips launched their brand new Mattitude Lip Liquids last month and I was instantly drawn to them! The new Mattitude Lip Liquids come in 12 bold shades, with a cream to matte formula and vivid pigments.
Beauty Blvd also describes their new lip liquids as long lasting, non-drying and non-sticky that glides on for a smooth finish. I received 3 shades for review: Remedy (Nude), Damn Fine (Red) and Secret Passage (Hot Pink).
Before I get into my review, here are swatches of the shades I received
I love the packaging! It’s not the usual lipstick box you get, the boxes have the shape of lips with the corresponding colour on it. I did think that the colours on the boxes are slightly darker than the actual colour of the lipstick.
The lipsticks come in the standard tube with a doe foot wand which makes it easier to line the lips and apply. I find the two bolder colours: Damn Fine and Secret Passage are more pigmented than Remedy which is nude. The colours look great on my skin tone. Remedy is quite a light nude so I have to pair with a brown lip liner, the other two shades I can get away with fine.
The lip lipsticks go on smooth, feel comfortable and dry fairly quickly. What I really like about the new Mattitude lip Liquids is that they are not extremely drying and they are not sticky. Longevity wise, they hold well during the day and after drinking but I find after eating I have to reapply. The only thing I don’t like about them is the scent but this doesn’t linger.
The new Mattitude Lip Liquids are really nice and come in a range of bold colours. I have had these for a while now and even took them on set with me for a photo shoot. If you want matte liquid lipsticks that are not extremely drying these are for you. I love the shade names too and the packaging (I held onto mine for the longest).
The New Mattitudes are £9.50 available at BeautyBlvd.com
Tips for wearing the new Mattitude lip liquids and other matte liquid lipsticks
Always make sure your lips are moisturised before application. I always put on Vaseline before I start my makeup and wipe it off when it’s time to apply lipstick
Exfoliate! Matte liquid lipsticks are unforgiving to the dead skin on the lips: they emphasise them! Not so much with the Beauty Blvd ones I realised but for the smoothest application and finish always make sure you have exfoliated your lips. Use a lip scrub, Vaseline with an old toothbrush or I simply just rub my fingers in circular motions all over.
