Urban Decay Comfort Matte Lipstick Swatches - Stark Naked (Top) & Hitch Hike (Bottom)
I'm gonna go as far as to say that these are my fave lipsticks at the moment. Pictured above is Stark Naked and below is Hitch Hike. I love the packaging. It does feel a little lightweight but I swoon over the gun metal and gold together. The lid satisfyingly clicks on and feels pretty secure. I doubt they'll be any messy lipstick episodes in your bag because the lid has decided to detach itself (we've all been through these tough times), but I can't vouch for that because I haven't taken these out on a day trip with me yet. The UD logo embossed onto the bullet is a nice touch as well.
In terms of their feel on the lips, it's a yes from me. They don't feel thick and heavy like some lipsticks do, super creamy, lightweight and comfortable. You can't say that about a many mattes, right? Which brings me onto my next point, the finish; because these are 'Comfort Mattes', they don't look 100% matte, more of a luminous matte. I'm not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed that they didn't come up a teeny bit more matte, but I can't really complain - fully matte lipsticks dry my lips out waaaaayyyy too much for my liking. No one likes the prune lips look.
The application is a bloody dream. Because the formula is so creamy the lipstick it glides on incredibly easily. What's even better, you only need one swipe. The pigmentation is that good that your lips are opaque with colour after a single swipe. I mean I do layer it up, just out of habit, but you really don't need too.
And finally, the long awaited lasting power. I was actually quite surprised. Not really with the longevity, that was just ya standard 4 hours(ish). But I put some on about half hour before I ate dinner and I was pleasantly surprised that it was all, pretty much, still intact. Usually I have a dark lipstick outline on the edge of my lips after I've eaten, which ain't a good look.
10/10, would wear again. If you're not too fussed about them not being 100% matte, I would deffo recommend the Comfort Mattes in the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick range.
