Though not an on a regular basis wearer, I’m a fan of a pop of crimson lippy for a night event or to decorate up a colorless outfit. Nevertheless it must be matte – for some cause, balmy formulation find yourself throughout my face inside 5 minutes of making use of. Fortunately, Zara’s Ultimatte Lipsticks are simply that – matte.
The packaging is the very first thing to seize my consideration – totally different to another manufacturers I’ve seen however in an understated means. Fairly than leap on the rose gold bandwagon, Zara have chosen a classy, matte navy for all their lipsticks. It is refined with out being boring black, and the matte really feel makes it really feel costly to carry.

I go for shade 15, a heat cherry crimson and it instantly delivers a wealthy pigment. The bullet isn’t probably the most exact (the method is sort of mushy) and I’ve to tidy up my lip line just a little to get a pointy end, however that could be extra resulting from the truth that I am not the most effective at making use of lipstick.
Two hours later and lasting energy is proving very spectacular – it stays put by means of my morning espresso and my mid-morning snack with out smudging and with out drying my lips out in any respect. This one’s coming house with me!
