Color City Matte Lipsticks Review

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”

Wow! I love it when I stumble on something big on my own, without any prompting from any blogs, promos or ads. Yesterday I fell in love with Color City Be Matte Lipsticks. 
 Truth be told the lovely assistant at Fontana Pharmacy who showed me these lipsticks when I asked her for a matte red colour.
Wow! Wow! Wow! let me tell you, most matte lipsticks are very drying, but not these! Because of the low  price there were no testers, so I figured I could easily buy one and try it in the store. After I bought #M19 I loved it!!! So I bought all the other colours I liked. They cost less than $3 USD each and packs a big punch. Like most matte lipsticks, a lip liner is a definite must. Also if you have the time, prep and prime your lips first.

(forgive the poor ipad photo quality)

The bold red pictured (Jenny) can be compared to MAC's Ruby Woo, but thankfully it's not as drying as Ruby Woo and remember that the deepness of the red will vary based on the liner that you use under. In the picture I lined my lips with MAC's liner in Brick

The colour lasted for about 5 hours during a girl talk lunch complete with sipping wine and eating lunch and dessert. 
What a pleasant surprise this lipstick is, and I hope you will be as excited as I am when you try it.
Gotta love Fontana Pharmacy for always being ahead of the curve and thinking about our wallets with these super deals and great products. 

Thanks for reading!
