Hello, Beauties! If you read my I Love Fall tag post you would know that I wanted to prolong Summer this year and as it seems I am not the only one.
Last night I was searching on the Internet for lip color trends in Fall/Winter 2015 and surprisingly I didn't find the usual suspects. You know-all those oxblood reds and deep plums. Apparently this Fall and Winter almost every color will be a trendy choice - from bare lips, lavender tones (Make Up Forever, YSL) and bright fuchsias (Tom Ford, Wet N Wild, Chanel) to pumpkin spice (Clarins, Ilia, Bobbie Brown) and hot reds (MAC, Carolina Herrera). For those of you, however who are looking for affordable yet trendy lippies on the cruelty-free side, I might have something just for you.
It’s Mega MATTE Lip Gloss Collection by W7 Cosmetics. I was raving about these again in my I love Fall post as you may saw. The truth is that there isn’t one thing that I don't like about them. The collection is consisted of five shades lip glosses with incredible mat finish. Well, maybe the word lip gloss is not the most appropriate in this case since those are more of a lip creams if you ask me! But anyway, that doesn’t make them any less fabulous! Since, you already know that I love them let’s see what is all about:
The packaging is very simple yet stylish and it doesn't look cheap at all. It has a cap with a smooth matt finish which adds to the whole theme. You are getting a 7ml worth of product, which is more than enough. They come with standard fluffy applicator that provides a smooth application of the product.
Mega MATTE comes in five gorgeous shades as I already mentioned. Unfortunately I was able to find only four of them.
- Two Bob: the perfect earthy beige nude color
- Chippie: bright coral color perfect for every skin tone
- Sinful: the one I wasn't able to find, but it is vibrant pink
- OddBall: rich raspberry color, in my opinion great for the Fall and especially trendy this year
- Hasta La Vista: classic hot red, definitely a must have
As you can see there is something for everyone in this collection. And with this variety of trendy colors this season, I don't see a reason why not to rock it!
The thing that stroke me first was the incredible aroma of vanilla and cocoa. I can’t even describe it, but it smells so delicious that I want to eat it every time. They also have this fluffy, creamy consistency that just glides onto your lips and it so easy to apply. After a couple of minutes it dries out to a matte finish. However is doesn't dry your lips as other matte lipsticks that I used and it is really comfortable to wear. Furthermore, if you want to add a bit of shine you can totally do it. I found out that they are great base if you want to add a lip gloss on top.
Definitely a long lasting color even after eating and drinking, which I couldn't believe at first. If I have to specify for hours I would say at least 7 - 8 hours without smudging or fading. For me that's a winner!
Where to buy:
I bought mine from Normal for the ridiculous price of 18 DKK (1, 73 GBP), when the price in the official website of W7 Cosmetics is 4,95 GBP. You can also find them in Amazon and EBay and get a really good deal.
Would I Re-purchase/Recommend:
For sure! As a matter of fact I already repurchased some of them. I gave two to my mom and she loves them as well. And why not to, I mean the product is great, the price is affordable (I don't want to say cheap, but it's kind of) and there is a variety of colors to choose from. I definitely recommend them to everybody who is looking for long lasting smooth matte finish which is comfortable to wear.
