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…

The other day I spent about 5 minutes looking for Dizzy. Guess where I found that naughty little cat?

|With BECCA Beach Tint in Peach on cheeks and lips|
?BECCA Beach Tint is a cream lip and cheek stain. It blends beautifully leaving a streak-free extremely natural looking flush. It is truly waterproof and will only come off with cleansing products. It sits comfortably on both cheeks and lips with no drying or flaking.
The only bad thing about going away for the weekend is that I will miss my kitty terribly
