My Experience with Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick Plumeria:
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. The lipstick 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. 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 precise application. Overall, the packaging looks beautiful and classy.
“Plumeria” is a very pretty berry pink shade with cool undertones. The color looks so fresh and vibrant on the lips. It instantly brightens up the complexion. This is a beautiful shade for both summers and winters. It is flattering for all Indian skin tones. The color is too bright for everyday use, but it is a rocking shade for parties and wedding. The lipstick does not contain any sheen or shimmer, but it has a soft, pearly sheen.
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 well. The color spreads evenly on the lips and does not get patchy. Most of the deeper shades like this tends to look darker at some places while lighter at others, but this looks even and smooth all over the lips. There is no significant fragrance in this lipstick.
The texture of this shade is slightly drying. It drags on the lips so much, particularly, this shade is the most drying of all the shades that I have tried. It tugs and pulls at the lips and I literally have to press the lipstick to make the color glide on my lips. It highlights 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 to avoid tacky finish.
The formula is comfortable but it is 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 up to 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 not drying on the lips. It stays comfortable on my lips and I do not need frequent application of the lip balm. The color stays fresh and does not settle into the fine lines of the lips even when the color fades away.
The lipstick lasts for good 6-7 hours on my lips with a little fading. It leaves a light stain pink behind, which can be taken off easily with a good makeup remover. Overall, this range has insane number of shades from nudes to bolds, which makes this range worth trying.
