Very happy April month to you all! Hope the spring month brings in joy and celebrations in everyone’s life. By the way I am here to share another new purchase with you all which was part of my small Too Faced haul before going on trip. Too Faced launched gorgeous 10 shades of matte lipsticks lately and I was lucky enough to get hold of matte peach, matte red and matte pink among wonderful shades. So today I will talk about a matte peach nude shade “Sorry Not Sorry” which is not my type of color and formula sorry. I am also not sorry to say so dear Too Faced :P. So let’s read more about it.
Price: $22 for 0.11 Oz, excludes shipping and taxes
Meet the most comfortable matte lipstick you’ll ever wear. Innovative high-pigment formula applies creamy as it warms to the skin, softening into stunningly saturated, non-drying matte color that stays plush and wearable. No-bleed, no-feathering formula is infused with Lotus Flower Extract to soothe and hydrate, leaving lips soft, supple, and beautifully matte. Who says you can’t have it all?
My Experience with Too Faced La Matte Color Drenched Matte Lipstick – Sorry Not Sorry:
The matte lipsticks come in sleek and smart black bullet packaging with a tight shut cap; I like its golden twist over base which complements the overall black case. I could not detect any fragrance which seems good enough for sensitive beauties. I find it pretty user friendly and travel friendly packaging.
My shade “Sorry Not Sorry” is described as matte peachy nude which is true to its description as it comes up warm peach nude on my pale skin tone. It is not surprising that I am not fan of such light neutral shades because of my natural urge for pulling off bold bright shades. However, I am surprised to notice that this is not the most comfortable matte lipstick I ever tried considering their tall claims. I mean I like that it is quite pigmented enough lipstick to give full color pay off in 1-2 swipes, good enough for pigmented lips even. But the finish and formula of this lipstick is bit uncomfortable and might be real tricky for dry lips. To my surprise, the lipstick glides nicely on lips with no tugging at all but then it appears setting in lip lines slightly which does not look comfortable in looks or feel at all.
It does seem to sit on dry patches as well. Even if I wear it on well scrubbed lips, it never looks smooth on my lips. I see that it has a nice lip hugging texture; still I am not able to figure out why it tends to appear dry on lips emphasizing even minute lip lines and dry patches. I feel the need of using lip balm or licking my lips frequently (as long as the shade stays on lips). I also see prominent cracks on my lips which are never visible with bare eyes otherwise; it also tells that it is not very forgiving for dry, ageing lips and/or dry, flaky lips.
I was quite happy to see that it barely transfers once worn on lips but then the finish and feel of this lipstick seems tricky for me; it can be way much for chapped lips in that case! I say so because the finish tends to become drier with 4-5 hours of wear time while the lipstick fades onto patches after a heavy meal or couple of hours which will leave traces of lip color on dry cracked lip lines. Horrible! Isn’t it? You have remnants of color on lip lines which can be concerning if you are hopping out or surrounded by people.
Summing up my experience, I feel that it neither provides any hydration nor it causes overdryness even though the finish seems uneven, dry matte on lips. I believe well scrubbed hydrated lips are the key to wear this lipstick that too with additional usage of a primer or may be lip balm beneath.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Too Faced La Matte Color Drenched Matte Lipstick – Sorry Not Sorry?
I don’t think I am impressed enough to get this again; you can easily skip it as we get a number of good matte formulas at a similar or much lower price. I neither completely like it nor I hate it.
