After trying a lot of other ranges of lip colors from the brand, Seventeen, I finally decided to try the Matte Lasting Lipstick range. I picked up the shade 09. Sadly, this range has only shade numbers and not names. Lets find out more about it.

• Offers an impressive, well-balanced natural effect
• Contains protective sun filters, wild mango and jojoba oil

My Experience with Seventeen 09 Matte Lasting Lipstick:
I picked the shade which is kind of mauvy brown color which makes it a very unique shade in whole collection. Fortunately, this color turned out to be an MLBB shade for me, and I got compliments from my husband also. 🙂
Most of the cream matte lipsticks that I have in my collection are hydrating due to its creamy texture. This one is super hydrating. I can say this as for the sake of this review, I did not hydrate my lips with lip balm and to my amazement my lips still felt hydrated till the time I had this lipstick on. The color payoff is amazing and need not have to rub the product again and again on the lips in order to get the color.
I usually prefer long lasting lip color which survive meals too. Matte lipsticks are usually long lasting, but still due to its creamy consistency, it tends to get disappeared a little while talking, eating or drinking. It stays on my lips for good 4 hours. But, with meals and snacks, the color fades away from the center of my lips and I have noticed a ring around my lips after full a meal. I am really disappointed with the longevity of these lippies, as I had high expectations from this brand.
The packaging is quite attractive and sturdy of this range. It comes in silver color twist up tube with shade code printed at the bottom of the tube. The cap shut tight with an audible sound which makes it travel friendly.
It has cream matte texture with smooth formula which glides like butter. It is a perfect matte lipstick with no sheen to it, but at the same time, it is super moisturising. Two thumbs up for that! The color payoff and pigmentation is outstanding. It really reminds me of Maybelline color drama intense velvet lip pencil which is one of the most amazing products in terms of formula and pigmentation. It has mild fruity scent which is not overpowering and vanishes after application.
Pros of Seventeen 09 Matte Lasting Lipstick:
• Beautiful shade
• Absolute matte with no shine or sheen to it
• Good pigmentation and opacity
• Keep lips moisturised till the color is on the lips
• Does not bleed out of lips
• Very smooth and creamy texture
• Attractive silver color packaging
• Contain SPF 15
• Contain the goodness of jojoba oil and mango
Cons of Seventeen 09 Matte Lasting Lipstick:
• Availability in India
• Staying power is not upto the mark
• Accentuate fine lines
• Doesn’t survive meals
3/5 ( For good pigmentation, hydration quality and absolute matte finish)
Would I repurchase or recommend Seventeen 09 Matte Lasting Lipstick?
No, I prefer lipsticks which at least stain my lips even after having meal. This lipstick does not stain and fades away unevenly. This is the product for those don’t mind touch ups and pigmentation is their priority.
The market is loaded with numerous products to try from. I think I will try some other lipstick from some other brand to get desired results.
