Today I have an unusual lipstick for you:
It’s MAC‘s Matte Royal (matte), released with the Matte Lip Collection and now permanent. And it’s blue.
Swatch. The color is well pigmented and applies true to color on my lips. I found it easy to apply directly from the stick and it doesn’t really need a liner (in this case you would be using an eyeliner. I think the MAC Chromagraphic in Marine Ultra would do too but I don’t have it.) It does not bleed (matte finish after all) and thankfully, it does not leave a stain either (that woud look weird). It lasts well enough but it does not really survive a meal. It’s not the sort of color you’d wear to a dinner date, anyway. Still, this is a high quality lipstick in blue and in the regular lineup, which I think is great and everyone should buy it so it stays! Great color for cosplayers etc. Recommendation!
I found it to be surprisingly wearable, too. Sure it’s blue, but dark blue and almost less in your face than dark plum or bright purple would be. I love wearing this and I wish people would be more adventurous with their lip colors.
