L'Oreal Matte and Lacquer Lip Paints. Review and Swatches.

PACKAGING

Travel friendly squeezy tube with slanted wand applicator.

APPLICATOR

Wand applicator is easy to use and works well with the formula! Only negative I have is that the wand picks up quite a lot of product - this can easily be resolved by scraping any excess back into the compact. 

FRAGRANCE

These smell amazing! They have a gorgeous raspberry smell that totally reminds me of the Summer! Is it June yet? 

FINISH

There are two separate formulas, lip paint matte and lip paint lacquer. 

Matte: The finish is a semi-matte, it’s not completely matte.

Lacquer: Shiny and glossy.

PIGMENT

Variable from shade to shade.

The pigment on the Lacquer is very good indeed, however the matte formula will require a few more layers as it lacks the immediate colour pay-off that the Lacquer provides - still gorgeous!

Lacquer. L to R - 107 Dark River, 105 Red Fiction,103 Fuchsia Wars, 102 Darling Pink, 101 Gone With The Nude.
Matte. L to R - 204 Red Actually, 205 Apocalypse Red, 207 Withering Purple, 203 Tangerine Vertigo.
LASTING POWER

Sadly, these do transfer so you will lose some colour throughout the day. Most product will stay intact however if you want to keep your lips looking fresh, you will need to re-apply every couple of hours.
