I finally decided to venture further afield to Long Circular mall to try out their NYX booth, admittedly there was a major price difference with the NYX round lipsticks, than my usual "lip smackers", but learning about new things always require stepping out of your comfort zone...so while there I did appreciate the variety and convenience of the booth, plus the sales person was very helpful.
My purchases revolved around a few lip pencils and thought I would give their matte lip sticks a try, one in Shocking Pink and the other was Summer breeze, after reading a recent review... I honestly love the texture of both, but the colour for Summer breeze was just a bit to pale for my lips,and looked almost "Barbie doll" pink, but the Shocking Pink, which had a fuchsia tone was just right for me.
Longevity... unless it states 24hrs, a matte colour usually last me three to four hours,so if I'm busy snacking, which for me causes smearing and fading, I know I definitely need to touch up. I guess its truly dependant upon the woman, as with most matte lipsticks you need to exfoliate, apply a lip balm/vitamin E to moisturise your lip and apply lip liner for a smooth finish and oh yeah... what I liked about this lipstick was the fact that I had no staining of my lips...which gets me fussy about ingredients!!
