Hello all. Just received some lipsticks from the mail that I purchased few days ago. I only purchased four of the shades. After trying black and orange color together in the store today, I was a bit upset I didn’t get the black, however, I did some playing around with all the shades- mixing them together. I have to say, it’s pretty fun playing around with them!
There are 12 shades in The Estée Edit Mattified Lipstick collection, two Lip Flip shade transformers (black and yellow), and 6 shades in The Barest.
Today, I will only be reviewing Mattified Lipsticks. I did try Barest Lipstick (forgot shade) and loved it on me, which usually doesn’t happen when it comes to nude/bare shades.
Also, I tried the black today at Sephora with the orange shade (Killin’ It). I loved the shade it brought on my lips! It was the perfect orange shade I been searching for, which is why I was upset with myself in not buying the black!
Sephora Makeup Artist suggested Marc Jacobs Rei of Light (212) as a similar shade to what Killin’ It and Black created. Marc Jacobs lipstick cost $30. Though expensive, it was a beautiful, creamy, perfect orangeish-red shade- not too bright, not too dark. Something nice to try that’s not a bright orange like all the others I have tried before.
But onto Estée Edit’s Mattified Lipsticks! Ready?
I love the packaging. Each lipstick packaging is white with black font, The Estee Edit signature and a spray painted effect on the left corners of the box.
Also, look at their bullets. They are so gorgeous in their silver and blue spray painted colors! Each bullet does feel a little heavy in the weight. On the bottom of each, the name of the collection, shade, and number are shown.
These lipsticks I find feel a bit dry, but not drying on the lips. I didn’t wear these all day to get the full effect of these lipsticks. I tried each on to get the feel of how each applied on my lips and how each felt.
I did find one a bit patchy, another did not seem to be opaque on lips, but maybe it’s because I’m not familiar with that lipstick. However, using my fingers to blend the color all over the lips did help.
Killin’ It applied creamy with a dryness that didn’t dry out the lips. Did not apply patchy on my hands. The first one to swatch and first to surprise me on how easily it applied and the pigmentation shown on my arms.
However, when applying to my lips, some areas didn’t look opaque. When I swept my hands around to blend the color on my lips it looked better.
This lipstick was removed with Bite Beauty’s lip wipes- individually packaged in a nice Bite bag that includes a mirror. I purchased the 10 individually wrapped wipes for $12. The lipstick removal was quick, simple, and easy and left no stain.
Marooned was the first Mattified I tried on at the store and loved. It was the one that made me want to try more. I love this color and it suits me on a shade I daily wear. It’s not too dark, however, you can darken it with the Lip Transformer in black if needed or lighten it up with yellow, as well. This one applied just like Killin’ It. Compared to Killin’ It, I found this one went more opaque.
Removing was again easy and quick using the Bite’s lip wipes. My lips did not feel drying while wearing the lipstick and after removing it.
However, it wasn’t that bad when applying on lips. It didn’t look as opaque as Marooned. The feel of the texture wasn’t as smooth and creamy applying. Still, this shade isn’t bad. I love the color and would still wear it.
Removal was easy just like the others and left no stain.
Surprisingly, this shade, The Storm, did not go on patchy as the ABT Last Night. Why did I get this? It’s unique. I tried Midnight Blue shade from Make Up For Ever, but that didn’t seem to call me. This shade, however, did. It’s blueish-greenish-teal-colored shade literally was why I wanted it.
I wouldn’t wear this one by itself daily, maybe for halloween I can work this into my makeup. But I did love playing with this shade. Mixing it with others was fun and some of those shades made me think I can work this into a daily wear.
I failed at the crazy eyes! LolI looked down on this picture to hopefully show you that Jaded colored line on my top line. Did you notice? It’s rather faint. But I wanted to point out, I didn’t buy it yet, but plan on it.
At Sephora today, I tried this on. It’s from Estee Edit The Edgiest Kohl Shadowstick. I like this liner. It was very easy to apply and very smooth! There was no tugging. The bottom waterline has the purple shade (on other pictures), Violet Taboo. I am very surprised that it hasn’t smudged, creased, patched, or faded! This is why I wanted to show you this shadowstick! All liners I try wear off quickly leaving spots or faded areas.
Each lipstick and the shadowsticks sell for &22. They are Estée Lauder’s modern take to makeup. All of these I love so far. They are fun to mix for a different shade, too!
The only stain I had when my creative side was done playing was on my fingers! I had to be careful not to touch my back of my phone cause the sticker on the case started getting some color transfer. Also, when turning off the lights, due to transferring on the nice white areas.
Other than that, I had fun with these lipsticks and I hope to purchase the black to play with the shades even more.
