After trying (and loving) the Ulta3 Lip Paints, and reading some great reviews on the matte lipsticks, i hunted down a couple to try. Now, if you are anything like me, Ulta3 has always been seen as a cheap (and fairly nasty) makeup brand, mainly selling nail polishes and lipsticks, but the products i've tried recently rival even the most expensive brands, and are extremely budget friendly.
According to things i've read, there are 10 matte shades available, of course availability varies from stand to stand. The store i picked mine up from had 4-5 matte lipsticks available, and i picked up 2.
I picked up 038 Deep Red Rose and 030 Harem Pink. Firstly lets talk about the packaging. These comes in a squarish matte black tube, with a clear section at the base that allows you to see which colour you are picking up. The matte shades have 'matte' written across the clear base (which made finding the mattes a lot easier once i realised). It feels lovely in hand, and looks more expensive then they really are.
These are slightly drying, but it's nothing that a decent application of lipbalm before wear can't fix. They last for ages on, don't bleed, and don't seem to cling to dry patches. They are unscented (at least that i can tell), and are easy to apply.
