Hi, lovelies, what kind of lipstick do you prefer wearing? Lately, I've been a huge fan of matte textures and finishes in makeup. Matte finish always looks great on photos and real-life and fits any time of day and occasion. The simple formula of a perfect makeup look — go matte. I was more than just happy to receive a couple of After 90 Matte Lipstick* in two gorgeous shades and today we are going to talk about these gorgeous beauties.

First of all, a few words about the packaging — black, sleek, and classy. The formula of After 90 Matte Lipstick is moisturizing, even though it dries to a velvety matte finish. The texture feels very comfortable on lips, it isn't dry or chalky. I have two beautiful shades to talk about today. 

For those who love rocking a dark, bold lipstick during the cold times of the year After Matte Lipstick # 15 will be a perfect choice, I wish they named this beauty. It is an absolutely gorgeous deep wine - red shade with a cold undertone, perfect for both brunettes and blondes. It gives a charming 'vampy' vibe for the look and I think it is perfect for the upcoming Halloween Eve. This shade requires a lip liner and a synthetic lip brush, to make the application more neat and clean. I would say it is a bit hard to work with this color. For an easier application, you can apply a little bit of a moisturizing lip balm underneath this lipstick and it will easily glide on your lips.

The After 90 Matte Lipstick # 17 is an opposite shade, for those who like it soft and mild. It is also great for an everyday makeup look. This color is a perfect nude with a slightly peachy undertone and velvety matte finish. I think this color will appear differently on everyone but will definitely look incredible, because of its universal sophisticated shade. Since I got this lipstick I literally can't stop wearing it.

Overall, I’m in love with these lippies, the After 90 Matte Lipstick is a very comfortable velvety matte lipstick that you can wear for long hours without getting it into the lip creases or an annoying dry feeling. It makes the lips look smooth and soft, lasting for a good 5 hours without smudging or creasing. I believe, it is a good result for an affordable makeup product. 

Lots of love,
