CONs:

  • Dryness.
    • Though this is expected from matte lipsticks especially the flat mattes but when I wore these, I noticed that my lips felt dry after 4 hours.
    • Also, I did not experience the suede-feel on my lips.
  • Not very long lasting.
    • If you will be out for a coffee date then this will be a good choice. But if you will go for say, dinner, then you may have to put this in your purse for retouch.

Will I purchase again?

  • I may consider other options.

Will you recommend it?

As you know, matte lipsticks are my thing and having tried a number of brands, it is unfortunate for me to say that there are other brands that perform better than this. There is no doubt that the shades are truly beautiful but between Jeffree Star and MAC, I will definitely pick JS.
