Rihanna can do no wrong in my eyes, especially when she continues to launch such rockstar products. Her latest beauty launch, Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipsticks ($18) are just that, plush, velvety matte finish with rich pigment and comfortable wear. Like most matte lipsticks it can get a little drying in this crazy winter weather we’re having, however unlike other matte lipsticks, this one plays really well with a chapstick or gloss on top if you need a hydration boost. Come summer this shouldn’t be an issue, but for my wine loving, winter chapped lips it’s made all the difference. Also I’m obsessed with the packaging — although it’s small so I feel like I’m going to burn through these lippies in no time.
Available in 14 shades (pinks, reds, nudes) and a fun mix of more edgy brown, green, blues and lilac shades, here’s a swatch of four of my must-have shades:
In order, bottom to top: 1. MA’DAMN (royal red), 2. GRISELDA (bold burgundy), 3. Candy Venom (electric pink), 4. Ya Dig?! (periwinkle blue).
