 I have this love-hate relationship with matte lipsticks: I love the way they make me look fab, but I hate the dry, blackboard- like texture that I sometimes end up licking my lips to somehow feel that it's not dehydrated. (Oh there you have it. You already know one yucky habit of mine) Can you blame me? Dry lipstick can be a lil' irritating, especially if your lips are dry to begin with.

Could there be a way to wear and enjoy matte lipsticks without the dreaded dry texture? Bobbi says YESIREE! with her brand spankin' Creamy Matte Lip Color line. The first time I tried it, I loved it already-and to bits, mind you. Methinks it's gonna challenge a lot of matte lipsticks that I know!


Bobbi's Creamy Matte Lip Color was developed to solve the wearability issues of most matte lipsticks: It was designed to glide on smoothly, sit comfortably, moisturize, and stay put on the lips for 8 hours without the heaviness, tugging, pulling, and flaking of traditional matte lipsticks. Think of butter in a couple of runway- worthy colors-that's what I think of this thing!

The lipstick comes in a lightweight, luxe black- plated bullet-It's very compact. The line has 14 shades all in all and what I got is called Hot, one of my super favorite pink lipsticks at the moment.

Hot is described by Bobbi Brown as "a bright pink", but on morena gals, it fares as a midtone pink with a hint of brightness and raspberry undertone. On fairer girls, it looks a lil' deeper and the raspberry undertone becomes more apparent, while on darker girls, it looks a lil' more pastel. In short, this shade sorta' adapts itself to the skintone of the wearer.

Formula is ultra creamy yet non- heavy, and texture is very smooth and buttery. It doesn't need to be warmed up unlike traditional matte lipsticks-it transfers effortlessly and coats your puckers with full color coverage in one go. It covers evenly, leaving no room for streaky or uneven coverage. It has a faint vanilla scent. I also noticed that this lipstick has the tendency to make lips appear fuller.


The sunlight's shining a bit brighter in this photo, and the raspberry undertone became more prominent. For your reference, the lip swatch on top is the closest to this shade's real color.

After about 10- 15 minutes, the sheen goes away and it settles into a semi- matte finish. Staying power is good: Lasts up to 5 hours with minimal fading, albeit you need to retouch it after eating or drinking. It keeps my lips smooth all day with absolutely no flaking at all. In its strictest sense, this product is not entirely matte, but pigmentation is the same as traditional matte lipsticks. Hot is a very beautiful color, and it adds a touch of rosiness to my overall complexion. It's a beautiful daytime lipstick both for office or college wear, with the right kind of brightness that wakes up your skin without being over-the-top. 

It's a great matte lipstick line that's worth considering, and perfect for those who want matte lipsticks with the comfort and lightness of satin lipsticks.
