City Color Be Matte Lipstick in Lola: Review and Swatch

by - December 27, 2016

Hello Everyone,
I have failed to do an unboxing post of my November Fabbag as it arrived late. So I am going to post full reviews of products that I have got in that Fabbag. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you guy know that I’m a big fan of matte lipsticks and this time Fabbag gives me a reason to fall in love with another matte lipstick which is City Color be matter lipstick. They offered a good shades range to choose from at the time of placing order, I have chosen the Shade “Lola”(How cute the name is) which they describe as “Blue based Red”. I have lack of Reds in my Vanity and the blue tone red is quite fascinating me to try it out. So let’s head over to the review of City Color be matte lipstick in Lola.

My review on City Color Be Matte Lipstick in Lola:

Packaging: It comes in a sleek black plastic case with transparent cap through which you can see the shade, so it is quite easy finding the color among pile of lipsticks. Shade name is mentioned at the bottom as well as the side of the case. Overall the packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.

Shade: As they said it’s a blue toned Red which looks so elegant and classy. The color appears deep red in the bullet but on my lips it is a bright red with slight pink undertone.

Pigmentation: Well pigmented, 2 swipes are enough for full coverage. Product can be layered to build the opacity which covers up my pigmented lips quite nicely.

Texture and formula: Texture is soft so the lipstick glides smoothly on to lips. It is not that drying like the other matte lipsticks rather than gives comfortable matte finish. Formula is quite hydrated and doesn’t have any shimmer or sheen. Hence need not to apply lip balm underneath but I would suggest exfoliating lips before so that the color doesn’t settle down into lip lines. As the texture is soft and smooth, the pigment does bleed and transfer but doesn’t emphasis the dry patches.

Staying power and color payoff: Since it is creamy matte, the color doesn’t not stay long but on me it stays put for 4+ hours. Pigment doesn’t survive the full meal but leaves a very beautiful and strong stain behind.
