Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipsticks

This is going to be a VERY brief post for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipsticks.

They went on sale today for $5 each (limit two), as well as their single eye shadows which are priced at $20 for four of them, including a palette to put the shadows in! The lipstick sale was a bit of an “oops” and was supposed to be $5 WITH the purchase of the eye shadows, but because they’re an awesome company, they decided to honor their pricing mistake and just put them on sale anyway!

I will review each of these in depth at a later date, but I wanted to get this post up so you all can check out these amazing lipsticks while they’re still on sale. I know the swatches are a bit sloppy, but they still accurately represent the colors!

If you want to keep up with me and see what I’m testing and reviewing, go follow me on Twitter and Instagram and be sure to add me on Snapchat too… They’re all under the name lesley_makeup!

I really, really like this formula. It reminds me of MAC’s Matte finish lipsticks, but not the drier Retro Mattes that tug on the lips. While I haven’t worn all of these shades yet, I can still verify that each one feels creamy and is highly pigmented, with complete coverage and perfect color payoff. Wear time for the ones I have worn, which is over half of them, has been a consistent 6 to 8 hours, with most of the fading occurring in the center of the lip at first after about hour 4. Wearing a liner with these will increase the overall wear time and also keep them from feathering outside your lip line, even though they barely even do that to begin with.

Normally, these sell for $18 each and contain 3.5 g / 0.12 oz of product. You can purchase these from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Website. The sale price of $5 is only valid until 11:59pm PST (as in West Coast/Cali time), Saturday January 20th, so pick these up for that price while you still can!

This post expresses my own honest opinion. I purchased these with my own money and did not receive any type of PR or compensation for this review.
