I’ve been anxiously waiting for Beauty For Real to release some matte lipsticks in their lineup and they finally did! I’m so elated to introduce you to the brand’s new H2O Matte Liquid Lipsticks ($18.00 for 4.5 g) in three beautiful highly wearable shades: My Pleasure (warm nude), Big Lust (deep coral), and Bring It (rich burgundy).
These matte liquid lipsticks have the same cool light-up packaging with the handy mirror on the side of the tube like BFR’s other lip products that allow for a super convenient application and effortless touch-up any time, anywhere. The formula of these matte lip colors is one of the best that I’ve ever worn because of the ultra comfortable finish. They’re water-based — hence the H2O name — to give a weightless moisture that doesn’t dry out lips, while providing an intense pigmentation with full color coverage. The texture isn’t runny or watery like some liquid lipsticks, but is more on the creamy spectrum and provides a non-sticky, non-streaky, and quick drying payoff. The color sets a few seconds after application to a budge-proof and transfer-resistant, true matte finish that lasts nicely for five to six hours with minimal eating or drinking — with eating, there is fading from the center of the lips. I had no issue reapplying these colors once they started to gradually disintegrate — it didn’t look flaky or patchy, which is something that I greatly appreciate.
My Pleasure is a gorgeous warm nude with a tinge of pink; it’s a great every day color and pairs wonderfully with any makeup look.
Big Lust is a deep coral; this is a very pretty and feminine shade, and I would wear it all year round!
Bring It is a rich dark burgundy; I’m head over heels for this color as I don’t own a red shade like it in my collection — the undertone is just perfect and it’s not too dark nor too light, so it gives an alluring vampy effect without being overly intense or intimidating.
