Anastasia Matte Lipstick Set Review + Swatches

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to review for you the Anastasia Matte lipsticks that I’ve tried in this set and I actually really enjoy. This post will include swatches of all four as well.

Overview:

  • This kit is discontinued I believe, but I found mine at Marshalls for $14
  • cruelty free!
  • Contains four mini lipsticks in varying shades of pink from Anastasia’s matte lipstick line.
  • Orchid, Cotton Candy, Stargazer, Plumeria are the shades included and they are all available in the full size.

Promise: Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipsticks are full pigment lip color with a smooth, ultra-matte finish. (From the Anastasia Website)

These definitely have an ultra matte finish, they look like you’ve applied a super matte liquid lip, but they are not nearly as drying. My only complaint with these is that this formula is not super creamy and smooth, it almost feels like you’re applying a powder/cream lipstick, it won’t glide across your lips cleanly. With a little bit of patience you can build them up to a gorgeous gorgeous matte finish though. They are comfortable, not drying at all and they are pretty long wearing.

I don’t have an issue with these bleeding outside my lip line, they are pigmented, and I truly enjoy them! When I wear these matte lipsticks, once the lipstick wears off, I am left with a gorgeous stain until the next morning. I definitely recommend these over the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks, because those are so so drying and thick even though they are long wearing.

I love how light these are on the lips. Overall I really enjoy and would recommend them if you find a shade you love.

Swatches:

Top to bottom: Orchid, Cotton Candy, Stargazer and Plumeria

Each swatch is two or three swipes of product, just to build up the color

Lip Swatch of Plumeria (My absolute fave):

Pros:

  • cruelty free!
  • long wearing
  • pigmented
  • not drying on the lips
  • fades nicely
  • super matte finish

Cons:

  • Price
  • These do not apply incredibly creamily, they act like a powder and you have to kind of stamp them on and work with them a bit.

That is it for my review! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments if you have tried the Anastasia Matte lipsticks. See you soon!
