My Experience with Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick Latte:
The lipstick comes in a glossy black and rose gold packaging. The cap is long and black in color. It has the brand’s tagline engraved on it. It has a nice rose gold twist up base that moves smoothly. The cap of the lipstick tube shuts very securely making a click sound and ensures that the lipstick packaging is purse-friendly and will not create any mess around. The brand’s logo is printed on the top of the cap and the neck of the lipstick tube. The packaging is not color coded, so I need to check the base of the lipstick tube for the shade. The shape of the actual lipstick is typical bullet shaped that helps in achieving easy and precise application. Overall, the packaging looks beautiful and classy.
“Latte” is a nice warm n*de brown shade. This is more like a coffee brown kind of a color. The shade is soft and suitable for everyday use. It will flatter fair to medium skin tones easily. It is a nice MLBB shade for my skin tone. I love this color because it is subtle and apt for everyday use. But I feel this shade is easily dupable – L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique Lipstick in the shade Café de Flore is a very close dupe.
The lipstick does not contain any sheen or shimmer. It sets to a soft, velvety matte finish initially and later on it looks perfect matte on the lips, but it does not have a powdery matte kind of formulation. The lipstick is decently pigmented, one swipe gives semi-opaque coverage. Two-three swipes give even and full coverage to the lips. It is capable of covering pigmented lips really well. The color spreads evenly on the lips and does not get patchy. It looks even and smooth all over the lips without any streakiness. There is no significant fragrance in this lipstick.
The texture of this shade is smoother and better than other variants. It does not cause too much tugging or pulling of the lips and glides smoothly. It does highlight dry patches of the lips, so it is important to exfoliate and moisturize the lips well for smoother and healthier-looking lips. So, I would highly recommend prepping the lips before application.
The formula is comfortable to wear, but it’s not extremely lightweight on the lips. I can feel its presence on my lips but it’s not heavy or sticky. The lipstick is smudge-proof upto some extent even after meals. The formula is not heavily transferring and there is minimal transfer of color. It survives normal sipping and light snacks easily, but it fades away after a heavy meal leaving a light stain behind. The lipstick is neither too moisturizing nor drying on the lips. It stays comfortable on my lips and I do not need frequent application of the lip balm. It does not settle into the fine lines of the lips.
This lipstick stays for a good 6-7 hours on my lips with a little fading. It is very easy to wipe off with a makeup remover. Overall, this range has insane number of shades from n*des to bolds, which makes this range worth trying.
