I am a huge fan of Painted Earth skincare and makeup, and have yet to try something from them that I don't love. Their Luxury Matte & Transforming Lipstick formulas are just what you expect from Painted Earth: High quality healthy products at affordable prices.
Left to Right:
Audrey (Luxury Matte): A rich warm highly pigmented golden brown honey with peach undertones.
Hollywood (Luxury Matte): A gorgeous golden peach.
Gigi (Luxury Matte): A vibrant highly saturated blue-based hot pink.
Merlot (Luxury Matte): A stunning burgundy with pearl.
Petal Pink (Transforming Lipstick): A slightly warmed up vibrant mid-tone pink.
Parisian Pink (Transforming Lipstick): A bright clear cooler version of Petal Pink.
The Luxury Matte Lipsticks ($17.50 each):
I was so surprised that the Luxury Matte Lipsticks are so smooth and creamy on the lips. I generally tend to keep away from matte lipsticks since they have the tendency to suck the life and moisture from my lips, but this is not the case with this formula. It offers long lasting comfortable wear, beautifully saturated color, and a gorgeous finish. All of the shades that I tried had the perfect amount of slip and cushion, and they never dried down to a chalky matte finish. They are definitely among the new breed of matte lipsticks that offer a gorgeous finish without the physical assault to your lips.
Transforming Lipsticks ($18.50 each):
These beautiful juicy lipsticks are just stunning. They hydrate the lips leaving them soft and supple without being too wet. They have the perfect amount of cushion and slip, and feel a bit more like a hybrid lipstick/lip balm/lip gloss formula, but with the color saturation of an opaque lipstick. Such a wonderful lipstick. I am dying to try more shades in the lighter nude range to see how they compare to those with richer pigmentation.
