Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks

  Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip

Press Sample

From their Glow Tonic to their Shea Butter Lip Balm, there’s a lot to love about Pixi. I’ve been a fan since I first tried their bronzer. So, I’m always excited to try out their new offerings. Up this time is their MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks, $14 each.

MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks

As I ‘ve stated before, I’m not the biggest liquid lipsticks fan. Like most people, I don’t like the super dry feeling they can leave on your lips. Luckily, I have been able to find some liquid lipsticks that are comfortable to wear. One of those is the Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks.

Thanks to an infusion of rosehip oil, the lipsticks feel very comfortable on the lips. However, it doesn’t help with longevity. Although Pixi claims their liquid lipsticks are designed to set quickly, I didn’t find this to be the case. The MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks never fully dry and are not transfer proof.  They leave lip marks on my straws, glasses and even my chai lattes.

Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip Wear

Sometimes they held up pretty well to drinking and eating, except when I would wipe my mouth with a napkin. The napkin completely wipes off the liquid lipstick.  I also noticed that if I wore them for an extended amount of time they would start to flake off and settle in the lines of my lips.

While their wear time doesn’t impress me, I really like their pigmentation and shade range.  With the exception of Au Naturelle, which just didn’t look great on my skin tone, all of the colors are very pretty, universal nudes. There really is a nude for everyone and every skin tone.

Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lipstick Lip Swatches

One of the most interesting aspects of the MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks is their packaging, specifically the applicator wand. Known as the PixiPetal applicator, it’s diamond shape is designed to make application even and precise.

Because of the thick, creamy formulation, you only need one swipe to get full, opaque coverage. Although I really appreciate this, I don’t love the wand. I didn’t find that it made application very precise, as you can see by the pictures above. This could be user error so you might want to try it out for yourself as applicators are subjective.

Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip Applicator

Overall: Although the Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks receive rave reviews, they aren’t my favorite. They do have great pigmentation, feel very comfortable on the lips, and are universally flattering. However, their lasting power and durability aren’t what I would expect from matte, liquid lipstick.

    The shades and pigmentation are gorgeous. Too bad the wear is not great.
