Sleek Matte Me Rioja Red

Sleek Matte Me Rioja Red

More liquid lipstick!

After the rather unusual colors of last week, we’re back to a lipstick classic: red! This is Sleek Matte Me in Rioja Red 433. I have and liked some Matte Me Metallics, but this is my first regular Matte Me.

Unlike the Matte Me Metallic, which have a mousse like texture and aren’t completely oaque, the Matte Me is a thin liquid that dries completely matte and opaque. The color of Rioja Red is a bright, fiery red.

The small applicator was easy to work with for precise edges. It dries quickly; don’t forget to smile while the lipstick is still wet to prevent later cracks. The color does not bleed at all and it didn’t crack on me either. You get the typical look of a matte liquid lipstick, but it does not look overly wrinkly and it did not feel dry either. Honestly this is probably one of the best matte ones I tried so far.

The color does not budge all day, except in the very middle of the mouth when eating. And there it wears off not too badly. It does stain everything it touches. Since it felt so good I forgot I was wearing lipstick at all and somehow dragged my fingers across my lips and then freaked out because my fingers were red…

Thumbs up, this lipstick is wonderful!
