Welcome to the new and improved Lovin’ Life website! I hope you like the update 😀 Around 1.5 month ago I bought two lip products from Fenty Beauty and ever since I wanted to let you know my thoughts, but I have been soooooooo busy with school and enjoying my time in England that I kinda got side-tracked from my blog. I’m so sorry for the delay!
First, I want to talk to you about the Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick formula, from which I got the shade S1ngle. For €18.89 you get 1.7 grams of product, while for a MAC lipstick you pay €19,50 but then you get almost double the product, namely 3 grams. So that is slightly disappointing.
The packaging of the product is gorgeous and seems very luxurious. However, when you take off the lid, the lipstick feels very light and it kinda feels fragile in my hands. Nevertheless, I haven’t experienced any problems because of this, so there is not really a reason to complain. Also, I really like the shape of the lipstick itself as it makes it very easy to control and therefore I’m able to apply the product perfectly.
Furthermore, the lipstick is available in 14 shades and I bought S1ingle as I find it a unique, but wearable colour. It is a nude that almost seems a light type of orange while it can also be described as a salmon pink. I think it is a beautiful colour! And even though I was a bit afraid of it not looking good on me, it is pretty flattering 🙂
The formula does not feel heavy for a matte, which is really nice as it doesn’t dry out your lips as much, compared to other matte formulas. Additionally, the lipstick is rather pigmented, lasts about 4 hours (pretty reasonable) and doesn’t bleed or feather. However, the formula is not budge-proof as it does transfer when you are for example having a drink. Other than that I think it is a really nice lipstick and since I love this shade I’ve been wearing it a lot!
The other thing I got is the Stunna Lip Paint, which costs €20,43 and then you get 4 ML of product. This time the Fenty Beauty is a better deal than a MAC liquid lipstick as they are higher in price and you would receive less product.
Again, the packaging of the product is absolutely beautiful and this one doesn’t have the little issue of feeling fragile. However, I do have a problem with the wand as it has an unusual shape and it makes it very difficult for me to apply the lipstick correctly.
The Stunna Lip Paint is only available in one colour, but I think it might be the most beautiful shade of red that I have ever seen.
The formula of this liquid lipstick is very pigmented and very thin. Because of that I was afraid that it would bleed into my skin, but luckily it doesn’t! Additionally, just like the Mattemoiselle formula the Stunna Lip Paint transfers. Nevertheless, this liquid lipstick stays on for such a long time! I actually went out a few weeks ago and wore the Stunna Lip Paint, when I came back home early in the morning the lipstick still looked amazing!
The lipstick dries a bit between a matte and a satin finish, which I think is beautiful. Moreover, it feels very light on the lips, so you do not really notice that you are wearing a lipstick. I absolutely love this formula, but I would use it more if it had a nicer applicator as I’m still quite hesitant to use it.
