Disclaimer: Unbiased review for your reference. I have smooth skin but I’m not spared from pores on my cheeks, redness around my nose and appearance of veins. Also, I have combination skin; I get oily on my t-zone area. For the lipstick I love wearing semi to matte formulation and with that, I have high tolerance with matte lipstick. Also, I always exfoliate my lips. Better check your skin types and preferences DO NOT put the blame if certain product doesn’t work the same.
This Detail Makeover Simply Matte Lipstick is way affordable than any other lip products in the market. For only P149.00 you get of product. It has wide variety of wearable shades, from nude to bold perfect for all occasion.
I got the shade in Guilty – I’m not sure if all the shades are consistent when it comes to its actual colors.
(arm swatch) It looks brownish
On my lips it looks a bit grayish in person
On the other hand I was awed with the great opacity; you won’t need to add more layer. Though it claims to be matte, it has a light moisture to prevent your lips from drying. No sticky feeling and non-tacky. The only thing that I noticed is that, it has a strong “floral” scent and has a mild after taste, thought it’s not an issue for me but it may be for those who are very particular.
Longevity: It lasted me 2-3 hours with light snack and just like any other lipstick it fades on the inner part after eating heavy meal.
*No stain effect. Retouch is needed.
