Today I went into Boston to get my hair colored and cut, or so I thought. It turns out I didn’t have an appointment to have my hair cut after all. I am sure I asked the receptionist a month ago to make me an appointment with both my colorist and my stylist. Oh well, my hair is going to be very very long when I go back next month!
Although my hair appointment was shorter than I expected, I still didn’t get home until late. So this is going to be a very short post. I had been planning to include this mini-review along with a review of the Highlight and Contour Palette from Jesse’s Girl, but I don’t have the swatches done, so the palette will have to wait.
A few weeks ago, I sang the praises of Jesse’s Girl Matte Finish Lip Color and the gorgeous neutralish, pink-mauve shade, Angelic, that I received. Here’s the review.
When I compare Jesse’s Girl Matte Finish Lip Color, Angelic to either the Tarteist Lip Paint shades birthday suit or rosé that I wrote about yesterday, Jesse’s Girl Angelic wins hands down. Although Tarteist Lip Paint feels more mousse-y or creamy when it goes on, it dries the heck out of my lips…and I’m not the only one who says that! Plus it costs 4 times as much. And finally, I think Angelic, the pink-mauve neutral, is a better shade for me. As much as I like the idea of nudes, more color suits me better.
So with all this love I feel for Matte Finish Lip Color, I went out and bought another shade. It had to be red, of course.
There was only one red shade available: Sultry, a true red, an American Beauty red. It’s a darn pretty red!
Matte Finish Lip Color is more liquidy than Tarteist Lip Paint, but it doesn’t run or feather. It’s easy to get a crisp line with the doe-foot applicator without using lipliner. It quickly dries down to a matte finish. It’s featherweight on the lips. It doesn’t come off on a glass or cup. It lasts for hours (though I haven’t eaten a meal wearing it).
It costs $3.99. If you have dry lips and can’t usually wear matte liquid lipstick, I think Jesse’s Girl Matte Finish Lip Color is worth a try! It works for me 😀
Also, don’t you love that cute little heart-shaped, pink leopard-skin mirror from Jesse’s Girl? At $2.99, I couldn’t resist it!
