Description via Sephora
“An ultra-slim lipstick with a long-wearing, petal-soft matte finish, created in a rainbow of weightless, color-intense shades designed to flatter all skin tones.
“…Rihanna wanted to make the matte lipstick of your dreams a reality: Think mega rich color minus the weight. The ultimate light-as-air texture glides on creamy and stays put—no bleeding or feathering after application—with a velvety-soft matte finish inspired by a rose petal. And thanks to Mattemoiselle’s chic, slim design, you can effortlessly define lips with the ultimate control for lips that look fuller with every stroke.”

Swatches of the purchased colors:
I deliberately choose to do a clean, simple face so that the lipsticks could be showcased properly.
Most liked colors:
PMS and Griselda are definitely my favorites.
Griselda DOES move a little more than I would like and for some reason does seem to run more than the others so I would strongly suggest a lipliner with that color specifically. A corresponding lipliner would be ‘Bespoken For’ by MAC.
PMS is surprisingly a pretty brown with just a touch of red which makes it flattering and soft on brown skin.
Most disliked colors:
Clapback was a little too cool for my liking. On brown skin, the richer the color the more flattering it tends to be.
Ma’Damn looked promising on my hand as a blue-red but it turned a little orange-red when I applied it. Not a BAD thing, just not my preference personally. It is still flattering on my complexion but if you are looking for a deep red or blue-red, this may not be the best choice.
I judge a product based on what is advertised about it and this lipstick does line up with the description of it from the brand. It is a soft matte, moisturizing and full of pigment. It feels comfortable all day long and does wear fresh all day (eating not included).
I will say I wasn’t too impressed with the overall color selection of the line and hoped to buy more colors when I initially heard of the line coming out but the product is quality and hopefully more colors come out in the future.
