Studio Gear Cosmetics sent me these lovely True Matte Lipsticks to review. I just so happen to be a big lover of matte lipsticks so this was very fitting for me! I’m not going to lie I didn’t expect a whole lot but these really impressed me. They were kind enough to send me all 6 shades from the line.
Here is a little background on the company. Straight from the website!
"At Studio Gear, we believe in celebrating your true beauty. It’s not just about a look…it’s about a feeling, an expression of your true beauty inside, out. To us beauty is as multi-faceted and ever changing as you are…. we design our products to be true to you…to keep pace with your busy, active, diverse lifestyle. We are driven by our community and champion inclusivity, and unique personal style."
All 6 shades in order are True Nude, True Mauve, True Pink, True Magenta, True Red and True Plum. The shades are pretty true to the names. The Nude is basic nudey brown in color. Same with the Magenta. A bright purple and pink shade for everyday looks.
The description on the website states that the Ultra Matte are velvety soft, pigment-rich colors that wear long and stay true. Luxe matte formula stays put, and feels pillowy soft . Minimal color transfer or need to reapply for totally confident wear.
The formula of these is quite velvety and sit comfortably on the lips. To my surprise they also didn’t dry out my lips either like some matte lipsticks tend to do. I was really pleased with how long they wore as well. Between 5 to 6 hours which isn’t bad for matted lipsticks!
This review is based on me using all of these shades for a 2 week period. I wanted to properly test them in different conditions.
