Skin Tone: Medium to Dusky
Recently, I purchased some lip products from the Australian organic beauty brand “Mirenesse“. I have already reviewed the shades “London“ and “Sydney“. And today, I am going to review the last shade “Dubai“. So, let’s get into the review.
$19.95 AUD for 1.7g
Meet Mattfinity Lip Rouge, our highly buzzed-about infinite moisturising matte liquid lipstick. With the softest velvet finish, this satin matte lip stain ACTUALLY hydrates! Easily glides on, stays elastic and vibrant all day long without drying out your lips.
Our exclusive formula is infused with Organic Beeswax to draw & seal in moisture while Vitamins A & E protect, leaving you with softened, moisturised lips. One-of-a-kind Mattfinity fills in fine lip lines & creases to give you smooth, youthful lips. The vibrant tattoo-like colour acts like a stain and wears off evenly to avoid a patchy colour.
Why You’ll Love It:
Superior hydrating longwear matte formula
Fills in fine lines for youthful lips
Unique no mess “Lip Hug” Applicator
Advanced Gel-Lite anti-feathering technology
Gel-Lite Polymeric Pigments
My Experience with Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rouge Dubai:
Packaging: These lip rouges are packaged in a cute transparent tube just like a lip gloss. The tube has a black cap with a silver spelling out the shade name, which is unique. The lower half of the tube is transparent and has a black shadow design. This makes the shade identification easier. The packaging is simple and pretty. The applicators have a “Lip Hug“ effect and they sit comfortably on the lips by perfectly clinging on them, thus delivering an even and continuous application.
Shades: It comes in a range of ten shades that are all named after famous cities from around the world and I love it when lipsticks are named after places. The shade range is basic and neat comprising of nudes, neutrals, pinks and reds. ”Dubai“ is a bright neon pink shade with subtle coral undertone.
Formula: The lipsticks have a soft, mousse-like consistency just like a lip cream. It applies very well and it starts to feel like a satin lipstick, and then eventually dries into a semi-matte plush velvet finish.
The texture is smooth and it feels very comfortable and lightweight on the lips. These are incredibly pigmented and a thin layer on the lips gives opaque, pigmented colour which feels like a dream. Though it is super pigmented, I felt that this particular shade is a bit streaky. I used this lipstick without lining my lips with a lip liner and there was no feathering or bleeding, even after eating.
This does have a fruity artificial scent to it which I don’t mind, but it may be bothersome for people with sensitive nose. These are made with organic beeswax and Vitamin E and thus unlike most matte lipsticks, this one doesn’t make the lips feel dry at all and they actually hydrate and you don’t feel like there is anything on your lips.
Wear Time: They have an amazing staying power. They stay put the entire day and it is almost transfer-proof. I noticed only minimal transfer even after eating. They fade a bit with oily foods, but nothing ridiculous. They also leave a beautiful stain on the lips.
Overall, I like this lipstick formula and the brand and I recommend it to everyone.
