Okay! So let’s keep going.
- Matte Lipstick Diary ($4.99)
So I received three to review in the shades, 110, 111, and 117. I absolutely love these! They are all very pigmented, and although they are not 100% matte, (I would say 85%) they are actually hydrating, which is something that is not very common in matte lipsticks. They are also very pigmented and are completely opaque with just one swipe (see swatches below.) They are also very easy to build and last a long time. The packaging is plastic and does feel somewhat cheap, but for only $4.99 I totally recommend these.
This shade is a really fun blossom pink with lots of pigmentation (like all of them LOL) and no streakiness whatsoever. This color would probably suit lighter skin tones but seriously, anyone can rock this color. I would totally recommend this color for the spring.
MLD 111 (this lipstick is not on the website anymore :(.)
This shade was such a “me” color! It was a pink mauve color that would look beautiful on anyone. It glided on smoothly and hydrated my lips. I wished this was still on the website so you guys could buy it! It might just be out of stock, so I will update this post when it is on the site again.
This was a blue based and again, extremely pigmented red. I love blue based reds because they make your teeth look so white and really compliment my skin tone. This red is one of the few that won’t make you look clownish, but make you look (and feel!) like a bada*s. I wear red lipsticks to evening parties and I will be sure to use this. Also, did I mention that they’re only $4.99? That is such a great price for such a great product.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
This is because they are very hydrating with good pigmentation. The colors are also beautiful and universally flattering. The only problem is that they are not 100% matte, but I still recommend them!
2. Pout-Holic Lipstick ($4.99)
These are their “crazier” lipsticks, which means that they are generally colors that are for (in my opinion) costumes, not everyday wear. I received shades PHL 107 #FOTD Fashion Of The Day and PHL 109 #FBF Flashback Fri. These kind of remind me of the Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks, but these are cheaper. I have to say though, I would choose the Matte Lipstick Diary lipsticks over these because I generally don’t wear crazy colors and the pigmentation on the Matte Lipstick Diary lipsticks is slightly better. These are also very easy (if not easier) to build than the Matte Lipstick Diary lipsticks, so you can wear them sheer, opaque, or anything in between. This is unrelated to the product, but I also love how all of the names are different hashtags! It is a really fun idea.
This color looks green in the package and my hand, but it is a very pretty blueish turquoise on the lips. This would perfect for a mermaid look! It did take a few layers to show up opaque, but they are so easy to build (as I said before.)
This color really reminds me of Nicki Minaj. I’m not sure why, but it feels like I’ve seen her wear a color like this before. It is a very neon pink, with a hint of purple. This is more pigmented than the previous shade, in my opinion.
Overall Rating: 3/5
This is because they aren’t as pigmented as the Matte Lipstick Diary lipsticks, and they are colors that I wouldn’t generally wear. I do recommend them for costume use because they are cheap and you may only use them a few times.
3. Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain ($5.99)
These are their new long lasting lip stains. They are extremely pigmented and come in a variety of colors. I love how they do moisturize my lips and last FOREVER. I received shades 108, 115, and 117 and I love them. When you apply them, you get a minty scent, which I love because some lip stains smell weird which is a complete turn off. These have a shiny and completely opaque finish. The packaging is a standard glass container with a plastic top that has a a flat applicator attached to it. I wish the applicator was a standard doe foot, but it isn’t bad.
This is a striking purple color, that is super chic and would be great for an evening event. It has the slightest amount of shimmer, almost giving it a metallic finish. It was the least pigmented out of the three colors, (took 2-3 coats to be fully opaque) but it was still very pigmented nonetheless.
As soon as I saw this I knew that I was going to love it. It is such a pretty medium pink color. It was so pigmented, that after one layer, it was totally opaque. This color is great for a daytime look.
LLS 117 Hikilicious (I hope I spelled it right)
This is similar to the previous shade, but it is more coral, depending on the lighting. It appears more pink in the picture, but in brighter light, it appears coral. This was also extremely pigmented.
Overall Rating: 4/5
This is because I loved the extreme pigmentation and the hydration, but the applicator was a bit tricky to use. I also wish there were more natural colors. I do recommend these for people who like extreme pigmentation and fun colors.
This review was so fun to do so thank you J. Cat Beauty! What hat your favorite shade/product? Feel free to comment and ask any questions.
See you later,
