I have tried a couple of products from this brand and Mattemoist Lip Gloss range has managed to impress me the most. Here’s the review of shade “404 Jolly.”
$10.99 (INR 650 in India).
One of our most popular products and truly a standout, these eight colors offer pigment-rich shades with a pillow-soft, silky matte finish. The texture is soothing and comfortable, while delivering a true matte payoff without the drying powdery feel. Hydrating oils and vitamins guarantee the formula keeps a moisture-rich feel on the lips. Macadamia Oil and Vitamin E to protect and soothe lips. Infused with Botanicals. Paraben free. Cruelty free. Vegan.
My Experience with Note Cosmetics Mattemoist Lip Gloss 404 Jolly:
It comes in a sturdy packaging. The packaging is pretty similar to Sugar Cosmetics Suede Secret Matte Lipcolour range, except this one has a flat applicator. The tube is see-through and the applicator facilitates application. Overall, the packaging is sturdy for the price and I really like it.
“Jolly” is a unique shade. It might look like a basic coral in the tube but it shows its undertones on the lips. It shows a tinge of red or pink or even looks neutral – depending on your lip color/pigmentation. In pictures, its undertone doesn’t show well, but in reality, the lip color is actually very unique and very pretty. On my lips, it tends to look a little pinkish and looks orangish on my sister’s lips. This shade will look best on fair to medium skin tones.
The formula is very lightweight and almost like a lip cream. It is well pigmented and I don’t have to dip the wand into the packaging again and again to get an opaque finish. It feels super smooth and comfortable on the lips. You don’t have to apply a lip balm underneath since this is a non-drying formula; it doesn’t leave your lips dry either.
Since it never really dries, it tends to transfer a lot, which is irritating. Still, it is bearable. It fades evenly and never really disappears from the lips unless you eat something oily. The overall finish is satin-matte and it makes the lips look really pretty. This one lasts 4-5 hours on my lips and that’s maximum I can go without eating something. 😛 It leaves a very light even stain on the lips. You can remove it with any remover.
