Matte-ness

You guys know I love drugstore makeup. By drugstore I mean lower end brands, things that are easily available at your local shopping centre. I love it most when drugstore brands bring out products that truly rival higher end alternatives. And with that in mind today I wanted to review for you a selection of the Savvy Long Lasting Matte Lipsticks.



Savvy are an Australian brand that have been out for some time now. They are very reasonably priced and quite frequently they will go on sale at Priceline on 3 for 2 or other similar offers. When I say that they had brought out a range of matte lipsticks I was intrigued. Matte lipsticks appeal to me because they are incredibly long lasting on the lips and I also just enjoy the way they look in general. I had eyed off these lipsticks for a while so when they were in a good deal a few months ago I decided to pick up a few of the colours in Paris, Maui, San Fran and Bali.


Paris, Maui, San Fran and Bali.


Paris


Maui


San Fran


Bali

These are averagely drying compared to the other matte lipsticks I own from higher end brands, they really have the texture I have come to expect of matte lipsticks in general. They last for ages, I would say up to double the wear of something like a Cremesheen from Mac or a Rouge Coco Shine from Chanel. My picks from the bunch are Paris and Bali, as I feel that Maui and San Fran are colours I already own. Bali is such a beautiful vampy colour, I am in love with it!

Would I recommend these? Hell yes. They are super cheap and great quality. Get on it!

Do you like matte lipsticks? What is your favourite matte lipstick that you own?

  5. These look amazing on you! Love Maui and San Fran. I think I need to try some Savvy products because like you, I love lower end products. Heard good stuff about Savvy but their stand at Priceline never gets me excited.

  6. Oh gorgeous shades! I shy away from matte shades as I tend to have dry lips. They look good on you though! (PS: Sorry I haven't been visiting your blog; I just came back from a long trip! Will be lingering around here again x Hope you are well!)

  7. Those swatches look stunning! But I don't think these would work out well with my lips as they are always dry! :'( But they look absolutely gorgeous on you - especially Bali!

  8. I love how Paris looks on you. It's a gorgeous nude that doesn't wash you out. I always find it's hard to find a nude that doesn't give me corpse lips hahaha

  9. I'm constantly eyeing off the savvy stand at priceline but I haven't taken the plunge & bought anything because I haven't really heard too much about their products other than the $10 palettes..
    Now I definitely want to at least try a lipstick, I love the colour Bali on you.. definitely vampy!

  13. Woo good to see some Savvy love :D San Fran looks great on you! I only have one of these at the moment, its a gorgeous red that is similar to MAC's Ruby Woo but I think I actually like it better.
