Painted Earth Luxury Matte & Transforming Lipsticks: Review & Swatches

Press Samples
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.

Luxury Matte Lipstick, Achieve intense long lasting wear with maximum color impact without drying lips out. Modern formulation allows this matte finish to remain smooth and creamy. A luxurious lipstick that achieves long-lasting wear, hydration, and color-stay in one modern matte formulation. This slimline lipstick glides on velvety smooth and pampers lips with softening properties such as Sodium Hyaluronic, Squalene and Vitamin E. Achieve intense long lasting wear with maximum color impact without drying lips out. Modern formulation allows this matte finish to remain smooth and creamy. Hypoallergenic. Free of preservative and fragrance.

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):
Painted Earth Presents Transforming Lipstick that is age-defying, it  works deep to undercover and  hydrate and dramatically smooth lips. This hardworking, age-defying treatment works deep undercover to hydrate and dramatically smooth lips. Breakthrough technology restores youthful appearance over time as it provides lustrous, extended wear color, comfort and cushion. Fine lines and cracked, dry lips are history. Hypoallergenic. Paraben and fragrance-free.

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.
Overall assessment: Amazing lipsticks! Painted Earth is also a Cruelty-Free company- which is just one more reason to love them!

  1. Pretty! I love very matte lips and a super highlighted, high gloss cheek with a bit of mascara. I have never tried anything from this line but Petal pink looks gorgeously tempting and so does gigi. I only have the Nars, Dolce & Gabbana, and YSL matte lipsticks and I totally recommend them if you are feeling like sporting the matte lip look :)
    Have a wonderful Wednesday; please hug your furry loved ones for me.

    1. These are definitely beautiful to look at and feel wonderful on the lips! I love the look that you describe- so chic! Petal Pink is definitely lovely! Thanks for the matte lipstick suggestions! Big hug back (plus love love the kitties and pups!). xoxo

  2. Beautiful swatches. I think Painted Earth is a great company. I haven't tried lipsticks but I love the Hint of Mint glosses

    1. I agree, Painted Earth is a great company! The lipsticks are really worth trying. The Hint of Mint Glosses are quite wonderful, and so cute as well!
