After attending the launch of amazing new brand Lynette Page Makeup Artistry (read more about the brand its products here), I was kindly given this lipstick to try (along with a lip brush). It's a Super-Matte finish and is in the shade 'Mine'. Here are my thoughts on it...
'Mine' is a nice neutral pink shade, not too bright to wear on a day-to-day basis. It's especially recommended for cooler skin tones but I think it's actually a pretty universally flattering shade. I'd gone off pinks a little over summer but this lipstick has had me digging out my pink blushers and lip colours and buying some new ones. I also like how secure the packaging is, as there's nothing worse that reaching for your lipstick and realising its smeared across the bottom of your bag!
Although it's 'super-matte' it applies smoothly, though you'll probably still want to exfoliate your lips first. It lasted really well despite wearing it whilst eating and drinking I only had to touch it up once throughout the day. I also really like how it only takes one swipe to get an opaque, pigmented finish. I found that the Pro Smooth Lip Brush* (£10, buy here) made it really easy to apply the lipstick neatly, especially if you don't have a lipliner handy.
All in all I really recommend this colour, whether you're a fan of pinks or trying to edge a little out of your comfort zone. I also really loved the other super-matte shade I tried at the launch, called Reality, which is more of a stain. I'd really like to buy that one when I get a chance to pop into Lynette's Studio.
You can buy the lipsticks here (or in Lynette's Studio if you're in or around Cheshire) for £12.50 each
Let me know what you guys think of this pink look :)
