What did I receive?
Mii Cosmetics and Poise Brands was kind enough to send me a lipstick from their newest collection- Get Some Mattitude. The collection features 4 Matte lipsticks and 4 matching Matte lipliners.
“Moreishly matt yet weightless to wear, our longlasting lipsticks smooths on for a suede-soft finish. So richly pigmented, just one sweep defines your look for bold beauty. Mixed with an enriching blend of oils and waxes, it glides onto your lips for long lasting colour.”
Price and Purchase:
The lipsticks retail for R315 each while the lipliners retail for R200 each. They can be purchased from Poise Brands (details will be listed below).
The lipstick comes packaged in a gorgeous black tube. The name of the company is engraved in pink on the tube, while the colour is printed at the bottom of the tube.
Before I even tell you my opinions about the lipstick, I’d like to mention that I do find it extremely expensive. Being a relatively new brand, one would not expect a lipstick to cost that much. Mac lipsticks retail for R230- almost R100 cheaper- and they’re a worldwide established company. While I do definitely understand that the product is designed by a great team, I still find it a slight bit too overpriced.
Now, onto the actual lipstick. I received the shade Adoration, a cherry-plum shade perfect for winter and autumn months.
The lipstick is highly pigmented and just one swipe definitely does deliver a ton of colour. The finish is matt, just as it claims to be.
The lipstick is long-lasting and can lastba good few hours without having to re-apply. However, because it is a darker shade, you have to take care to re-apply to the center of your lips after eating to prevent looking silly.
The shades in the collection, although very beautiful, are quite limited. There’s only one nude shade, one plum shade, one red shade and one aubergine shade. There aren’t any brown or mauve toned shades, which I really would’ve loved to see in the collection.
Overall, the lipstick is beautiful and definitely does live up to its claims. However, the price range and colour options are slightly problematic.
