My Experience with LA Colors Matte Lipstick Femme:
The lipstick comes in a basic, black-colored plastic tube with a clear plastic cap. The side of the tube has the shade name written on it. The tube is color coded and the transparent cap helps to easily spot the shade from makeup stash. The cap does not shut very tightly and may come off while carrying it around, so it is not really travel friendly. The shape of the actual lipstick is typical that helps to give easy and precise application. The lipstick bullet remains jutted out, so I have to be a little careful while opening or closing. Overall, the packaging is average.
“Femme” is a beautiful and bright Barbie pink color. The color is suitable for fair to medium skin tones. This shade goes well with my skin tone and instantly brightens up the face. This is a pretty everyday color and it is also a lovely shade for party makeup look as well. This is a beautiful shade, which is not too bold. This lipstick sets to a soft matte finish.
It is decently pigmented and requires two to three swipes for the color to build up completely. One swipe gives semi-opaque coverage and two-three swipes are good enough to build up full opaque coverage that helps in covering pigmentation of the lips. This looks even and smooth all over the lips.
The texture of the lipstick is smooth but slightly drying. It causes a little tug and pull on the lips. This lipstick highlights dry patches of the lips, so it is important to exfoliate and moisturize the lips well for smoother and healthier-looking lips, so prepping the lips before application is mandatory.
The formula is comfortable but it does not feel extremely lightweight on the lips. I can feel the presence of the lipstick on my lips. The lipstick is smudge-proof upto some extent even after meals and does not budge even after heavy meals. The formula is not heavily transferring but it does transfer a little on the mugs and goblets. It survives normal sipping and light snacks easily but it fades away after a heavy meal. The lipstick is not really moisturizing and feels dry on my lips after some time. So, I need a lip balm after a few hours to keep my lips nourished.
The lipstick lasts for good 5-6 hours on my lips with a little fading. It can be easily taken off with a good makeup remover and does not stain the lips.
