Fenty Beauty… doesn’t it seem like they are taking the beauty world by storm right now? Their products have been flooding my social media feeds and I ain’t mad about it. Fenty Beauty, created by singer Rihanna, has been launching products out like crazy since they launched in September. One of their latest releases is their Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick – a matte lipstick meant to be both weightless and long-wearing. You all know I love a matte lipstick so I was eager to pick one up and try it myself. I chose the shade Spanked which is described as a dusty rose.
The first thing I noticed about the Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick is that the tube is not only quite long and thin, but it is also very light in weight. However the shape makes it quite easy to get a good grip on to get a flawless application. The reflective surface is definitely a finger-print magnet which is a nightmare if you want to photograph the product (also difficult to not get your own reflection in the shot) but it is quite pretty to look at.
The little FB embossed on the top of the Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick was such a nice touch, it was almost a shame to use it for the first time and smudge it away. I’m glad I got a photo of it first!
The formula of the Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick itself is very creamy and pigmented. One swipe gave me full pigmentation and one quick blot didn’t take away any of the pigmentation. It definitely applied like a cream lipstick, however once it dried down it looked just like a liquid lipstick! As mentioned before, I found the thin shape of the product made it very easy to get an even and clean application on the lips.
1. Freshly applied at 8 AM; 2. Pre-lunch check-in at 12 PM; 3. Post-lunch check-in at 12:45 PM; 4. End of day check-in at 5 PM
The Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick easily lasted me throughout the day. I had a little bit of wear in the centre of the lips but to the naked eye, it was barely visible. In fact, I didn’t even notice until I was editing my photos that there were a few spots where it wore off. For the most part it felt very comfortable on the lips my lips did feel a touch dry at the end of the day. However, my office at work is VERY dry and I’ve been finding my lips and skin abnormally dry lately. I did put lip balm on prior to applying this which helps keep some moisture in.
Overall, I am in love with this formulation! It applied so well and had the staying power of a liquid lipstick which I find so impressive for a “standard tube” style lipstick.

Vampy lipsticks are such a staple in my makeup collection. While I definitely wear them all year round, I am definitely more drawn to them during the colder months of the year. Today I thought I would share with you three of my current favourite vampy lipsticks in my collection. These are all liquid lipsticks as I find that type of formula generally packs more of a pigmented punch and are far easier to apply. Those are two factors I find very important in a dark lipstick.
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Liquid Lipstick in Heathers
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in the shade Heathers was one of the first vampy lipsticks that I added to my collection. It definitely adds a lot of drama to any makeup look I’ve worn it with. I really enjoy the formula of this one, I have previously reviewed the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick so you can find out more about it if you’re curious! It’s a beautiful brown/oxblood shade. Continue reading
Hi guys! I recently picked up the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Haze duo when it was briefly available during a flash sale a few weeks ago. I’ve been dying to try a purplely/grey liquid lipstick so Kat Von D Haze II definitely seemed like it would fit the bill. Both shades in the set are gorgeous and by purchasing them in a set I saved a few dollars so it was a no-brainer when I placed my order. So, today’s makeup look was completely inspired by Kat Von D Haze II.
Hi guys! Today I thought it would be fun to show off my matte makeup look that I’m rocking today. I very rarely rock a matte eye makeup look but I wanted something quick and simple today as I was heading out to get my hair done. The only shine I’ve added to this look is my highlight and a shimmery blush. Though I mostly show it on my lips, I am definitely mad about matte!
Hi guys! One of my goals this year is to try different lip products ranging from drugstore to high end. I tend to go for the same lipstick lines such as the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks and the Colourpop Lippie Stix (to name a few). While I still love them dearly, I also want to switch it up and see what else is out there.
I was just causally browsing the Sephora website and they had a “Lip Boldly” feature on the front page that caught my eye. One thing led to another and I added quite a few to my loves list that I wanted to eventually try. I’m going to continue to order a few in every once and awhile so this is the first batch. I’m also going to pick up lipsticks from the drugstore as well throughout the year. My plan is to eventually do a big collective comparison closer to the end of the year! For now, this Love for Lipstick series will primarily be hauls, but will eventually include mini comparisons.
So, for round one, this is what I picked up!
