Hello lovely readers!
When I first saw Christine’s (from Temptalia) review Lancome Mix & Matte Collection: Matte Lipsticks Review, Photos, Swatches, I fell deeply in lust with ‘Corset’.
Corset is a semi-matte pigmented coral pink. It has a just detectable pale gold microshimmer in it that is visible in direct sunlight- in natural light it just gives Corset a beautiful glowiness.
Texture wise the Lancome Color Design Mattes have made a big splash amongst the beauty blogging community because they have none of the chalkiness, dryness, and tugging associated with matte lipsticks. When I tried it I was also pleasantly surprised at how silkily it applied on the lips and how comfortable it was to wear throughout the day for a matte lippy. Of course, it did not actually add moisture to my lips like a gloss or a MAC lustre finish lipstick, but it didn’t dry them out either.
Staying power and pigmentation:
Staying power is reasonable. 3hrs on average on me. Pigmentation is quite good, with full coverage in one swipe.
Here is a swatch of Corset nestled between NARS Heat Wave and MAC Speak Louder to give you a good idea of the colour in context…

Guess what arrived in the mail today?
Took forever to get here (one month), but here they are…

I didn’t see the Sofia Coppola biopic about Marie Antoinette in the cinemas and it was only about a year ago that I borrowed it on DVD purely to perve on the set design, makeup, clothing, and hair in the film.
Kirsten Dunst had some amazing looks in the film.
