{ review } Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks

The latest in a long line of matte lip product launches, these ones from Avon are the biz.

Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks, R129.90 each

What they say: An extremely smooth, completely matte lipstick that never cakes, cracks, or compromises. Seals in moisture for a lightweight velvety feel. Our new matte lipstick comes in 10 bold, beautiful colors for any long-lasting, chic look

What I say: Lightweight is not an adjective normally associated with matte lipsticks. Matte formulas are notoriously uncomfortable and drying, but not anymore.

There have been a few launches that broke the mould (Smashbox and Revlon come to mind), and Avon’s new offering does just the same.

The formula glides on much like a moisturising formula, but delivers a velvet-like finish that literally lasts for hours.

So if you’re in the market for a matte lipstick, these are the ones to try, especially seeing that they are over 45% off this month at just R69.90 each (normal price R129.90).
