MAC Mattene

MAC Mattene lipsticks hit counters on October 2nd. A lot of us have been waiting to try these. I do admit some tredpidation with all the new Matte products including the Matte 2 eyeshadows ( post on that coming soon), as I did matte back in the 80s when I was just doing makeup and it was all the rage. The late, wonderful Kevyn Aucoin was one of the masterminds behind that, called the Mattemaster at the time. Those lipsticks were dry, but did last, and we loved them. Then good shimmer came along and I have never looked back.

I am not sure I want to go all matte again, but the new MAC 's are a nice addition to other lipsticks.

I do like the rich lip look thats out for fall , these fit that well.

Mattene lipsticks are dry , sort of, but they do not dry the lips, they have just enough moisture to make them feel good and have slip, but look very matte. Even the semi- matte ones.

I have been wearing Cafe Matte, a medium brown shade for the past 2 days. A nice neutral, I also like Composure, a nude with a hint of berry pink to it. For the red lovers out there, Grande Dame is a true screen star siren red, the one most likely to be worn by Dita Von Teese. Night Violet is super deep purple that would be especially nice on darker skin tones.

All of them have major pigment and apply smoothly on.

I got decent wear out of these, and after application, they settle in some, and really accentuate the lip contours.

The case is slim ,black, matte( naturally) , and chic.
Mattene retails for 14.50 and are LE , out until Nov. 21
