I have seen lots of talk about how Matte Liquids Lipsticks are now the ‘in thing’ so after a good mooch around Boots I picked out 2 of my favourite shades to put them to the test!
Tester 1 : Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream RRP £4.99 from Boots.com
I chose ‘Shabby Chic’ and I LOVE the colour! It goes on like a lipgloss with a wand which I much prefer to an actual lipstick application – I have tried it several times now and it has lasted through food, drinks and a whole nights sleep! So this sure has some staying power and at just £4.99 it is a great price too!
Designed to suit all skin tones. Available in 6 Colours
Sleek Matte Me is a lipgloss with a smooth matte finish that glides on in one smooth application, with no need for a second coat.
The light as air texture provides you with comfortable wear for hours, that doesn’t cake, flake or dry out, ensuring long lasting colour all day.
Store in a cool dry place.
Tester 2 : Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick RRP £8.99 from Boots.com
Red shades are my favourites so I picked this as it was one of the bolder shades available in matte. Again it has a lipgloss wand application which makes it much easier to apply. This one is much more liquid and a little more messy to apply, the shorter wand also makes it a bit more fiddly (or maybe I just have fat fingers?) I can feel this one sitting on my lips more and I did lose the colour much quicker than the Sleek version.
Bold, matte and long-lasting colour with 24hr hold. It’s lightweight, velvety texture and non-drying formula gives extreme comfort that doesn’t smudge!
Available in 17 shades
From sassy reds to vibrant pinks and everyday nudes there is a colour to suit every occasion
Overall : I would choose the Sleek over the Bourjois as it lasted much longer and felt nicer on – for the price difference it is a much better buy!
