Being a lipstick person, I usually prefer matte lipsticks. The reason being, matte lipsticks have a better staying power than a satin or glossy finish lipsticks. Not everyone can make a good matte lipstick, was Color Studio Professional successful in making a good matte lipstick?
Color Studio Pro describes Pure Matt Lipsticks:
Amp up your beauty routine with purely pigmented, purely luxury, Pure Matt lipsticks by Color Studio Professional. The innovative lipstick formulation of high impact color envelops your lips with a matt finish. Create a captivating, bold statement featuring a harmony of feminine and vibrant shades with delicate tones from pastel pink and nude peach to neon red and electric fuchsia.
My experience:I am kinda qite impress with Color Studio Pro which always surprises with their new and amazing launch, almost a year back CSP launched this gorgeous range of matter lipsticks and this time it was the packaging and the product. I really adore the packaging it comes in a black box with a golden case that slides out carrying the lipstick tube - looks very high end. Not only the box, but the tube itself is sturdy and chic. Classic black plastic in square tube with golden line.
Coming to the product, the first thing you will notice as soon as you will open the lid is the sweet vanilla scent, just like MAC lipsticks. If you are not a fan of sweet vanilla scents, don't worry it doesn't linger on the lips for long.
Since they are matt lipsticks, I had an idea of the texture and longevity. Unlike a few matte lipsticks, CSP Pure Matt is not dry and difficult to use. It is creamy in texture, and glides on smoothly. The application is not streaky or patchy. However, I would still suggest to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to using any matte lipstick and apply lip balm underneath if you have dry lips issues. The staying power is good however after an hour or so you will notice it gathering up in the inner lip which looks gross . I noticed it happening with the lighter shade 'Paradise' and not with the darker one 'Predator'.
Paradise 107, is a mauvy milky pink shade. A shade that can wash out many skin tones. It is a shade that will look good on a very fair skin tone with pink undertones. However it does look flattering if you use a slight colored gloss over it. Nude shades doesn't wash me out, but shades that have a milky tone to it, can wash many skin tones. As it is a light shade, it starts fading within 2 hours.
Predator 101, is a gorgeous red color - my favorite out of all the reds I own. It is a cool toned red color with blue undertones color, a color that makes your teeth look whiter. A shade that highlights your face without using any makeup. It is a staple color, with which you only need a liner and mascara and you are good to go. Has a better staying power, since it is a red shade and it stains your lips.
