First of all, I’ve missed y’all! Taking the month of December to get my mind and spirit right after my miscarriage (read about it HERE) was very much needed, let me tell you! That being said, can we talk about these new Fenty lipsticks??
Unlike the Stunna liquid lip paint she released early this month (see that review HERE), the new mattemoiselle lipsticks are a traditional stick lipstick.
These lippies are soft, creamy, and matte without the traditional drying matte feel. They also go on fairly opaque without the need for multiple swipes. I swatched 9 of the 14 shades, and of the colors I swatched, Up 2 No Good was the only shade that would not apply evenly on my lips. It also showed every single crack, so it is not a color I would recommend.
Midnight Wasabi was also a fail for me. It looked amazing in the promotional pictures:
But not so much on me (see below).
NIf you don’t already have lipsticks in any of the featured colors, these lippies will not disappoint. However, I will say that for a fraction of the price ($5.99) NYX Matte Lipsticks have a very similar creamy matte formula (buy HERE or HERE).
Now, without further ado, the swatches as seen on myself and my blogger buddy, Actually_Ashly (follow her HERE):
Candy Venom- an electric pink
Up 2 No Good- a nude peach
S1NGLE- a blushing nude
Spanked – a dusty rose
Freckled Fiesta- a spiced terracotta
Shawty – a warm chestnut
Ma’Damn – a royal red
Midnight Wasabi – a wicked green
Clapback – a true navy
Okay those are all of the swatches we completed, however, there are 5 additional shades in the collection:

Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
