L'Oreal Matte Lip Paints

I've become a total liquid lipstick convert recently. I love anything that is low maintenance and that is just what they are, a lip product that you can slap on in the morning and not worry about for pretty much the rest of the day. I tried out 3 nude shades recently in my liquid lipsticks comparison post.

Once again I was swayed by L'Oreal having a 3 for 2 offer in Boots and I decided to try out a couple of their new Matte Lip Paints. 
There are so many colours to choose from, lots of nude shades, some gorgeous pinks and a couple of deep reds and plums too. I was spoilt for choice and I left Boots with my hand absolutely covered in swatches - a regular occurrence for me, I admit. 

I picked up 208 Off White which is a pale pinky nude and 201 Hollywood Beige which is actually more pink toned than beige like the name suggests.  

I also repurchased a 24 Hour Infallible Matte foundation - It keeps me shine-free, is
great on my drier patches and gives the coverage I need without looking chalky. L'Oreal foundations are just amazing if you ask me!


Anyway back to the Lip Paints! 

At first I thought it was in a squeezy tube but it has a lipgloss- like applicator. The tip of the applicator really impressed me, it's slightly curved to cover the lips really easily and applies just the right amount of product to sweep across. The tip is pointed to help line the cupids bow. 
Now I wouldn't say they are your typical matte formula. They give more of a semi-matte finish which is packed full of colour and I don't find them drying although I haven't really suffered with dry lips recently.

They feel creamy when you first apply them and the shades are nice and pigmented. They don't set on your lips like some other liquid lipsticks (NYX Lip Lingerie and Barry M Matte-Me-Up for example) which means they aren't as heavy. There is some transfer but not as much as a regular lipstick. They leave a stain on your lips so even with some transfer you are still left with a colour. They last well and don't flake or smudge.

There's a glossy 'lacquer' version of these too which I might end up trying out but I am really loving a matte lip at the moment. I've been wearing the pinker shade constantly lately - it's gorgeous!

I'd love to know if you've tried these.

L'Oreal Lip Paints are £6.99 and currently 3 for 2 at Boots.
