I was so anxious to try this. A matte finish from a cream? Got it yesterday, in the color Monte Carlo. It's a pretty true red, with a very slight blue undertone. It goes on creamy, but you need to keep applying more product for real coverage. It dries quickly to a lovely matte finish. I wore it today, and it lasted about 3 hours, before it started looking a bit weird and clumpy. Still, I …Read more

i am liking these a LOT! i purchased two of them (the light pink shades) and when i first applied them, i screamed in horror! there are a couple tips to help make them work, though.


condition your lips! you don't necessarily have to apply balm & then apply the product right away, as this may cause the product to not last as long. but, apply your balm & do the rest of …

I purchased this in Istanbul, which I would call a baby pink. I am not a fan of these. I recently got into matte lip looks and I was eager to give these a try. The best way to describe this is it looked similar to pink dust on my lips. It settled in every line in my lip and screamed, look at me... my lips are super dry and look awful. I have full lips, so maybe that's why this didn't …Read more

I looooovve these! Picked 2 of these up on a whim today, Antwerp a pretty coral-y color and Milan, a nice rosey pink color. I'm NC25 with yellow/slight olive tones and these both look beautiful on. Not quite gloss, not quite lipstick, just matte, pretty goodness! Apply nicely and dry quickly, but do not dry my lips out and all. Also have awesome staying power! I am really impressed by these …Read more

I have three of these: Monte Carlo - beautiful, deep crimson red, Addis Ababa - bright, hot pink, and San Paulo - medium coral-pink.
I hate any sort of frosty or glossy finish, the most I can stand for is a creme finish, so I figured these would be perfect for me. They apply nice and light like a gloss but dry in about 20 seconds to a matte finish. They leave a stain on the lips for hours …

I got this in 02 Stockholm. The color swatches are a little deceiving, at least for this shade. I thought it was going to be too brown, but it's gorgeous. It's slightly more colorful than my natural lip color, so it's a nice nude color. I have an extremely hard time finding lip colors that look well on my skin since I'm fair with freckles and I have warm undertones. It's …Read more

I was excited about trying this product and I'm glad to say that my high expectations were met. These are great - and this is coming from someone who doesn't generally like wearing lip products. I simply don't like how lip gloss and most lipsticks just sit on your lips. These are a whole other beast. They apply wet and glossy so there's some wiggle room to move it around but …Read more

Testing these on the back of your hand really doesn't work, and your lips have different skin so they set better on lips. On my hand the color just slides around and is sheer. I would say they are semi matte, and depending on how dry your lips are normally you'll have to adjust how you wear these. Apply a good balm beforehand and there should be no issues. I like the shade selection …Read more

I bought this product in a bright red color called Monte Carlo. I really love it so far; it applies as a soft, creamy gloss that dries and I don't even feel it! It's stayed on for several hours, through a meal and several beverages. Once again, it's VERY matte, and probably rather drying over time. I think that when I wear this out I'll add some lip balm on top to keep my lips …Read more

Pros: very emollient and soft for a matte lip product, applies like a lip gloss but they are not gloppy, highly pigmented (Monte Carlo is my favorite but very, very dark)
Cons: color are difficult to interpret on website (what you see is not necessarily what you get), not as long lasting as most matte lipsticks (but longer lasting than lip gloss)
Recommendation: use a lip pencil first …
