Happy Wednesday! I thought since I didn't have much planned for what I wanted to put out for today's blog post I could do a little round up of my thoughts so far with the BYS Matte Lipsticks. I had these extra pictures that couldn't fit in the review so I had to put them through some good use and they were too good to pass or let them stay in the drafts folder forever. Honestly I just couldn't take time to take any blog pictures this week as it has been so hot and with me taking them on my balcony (since everywhere else in my house is too dark) seems to extreme. I am however may be investing in some lighting soon so maybe I won't sacrifice standing outside for too long to manage these pictures. So enough about my chit chat about the weather and my inability to take pictures and on to a few thoughts I have on this lipstick range as a whole.
Since I've done two separate reviews already on the two then this will be just a condensed version with my thoughts as a whole. In case you missed them both you can find the Celebrity Status (red one) and Latte To Go (nude one) reviews to see my in depth review.
An overall rating I have so far is maybe a 3 1/2 stars. I liked the lipstick but there were a couple of dance sides. The red one doesn't dry fully matte like it says and can cause transfer but at the same time is really moisturizing and creamy plus super pigmented. The nude one is fully matte but it is now drying and sticks to dry spots but it has nice pigmentation and is a lovely color. So far it is a hit and miss lipstick for me. They are either matte but drying or creamy and not fully matte. The color is lovely, the pigmentation is great and it is super affordable and starting to be pretty accessible for me the brand. I don't think I'll pass up on it quite yet and I believe in second chances so I might experiment with these and buy a few colors I like and suite me first to really give it a go. If you get a chance to try it then go because others might have a different experience and they weren't all bad. I have tried worse but these have hope and can be manageable if you have the time and patient. I hope I justified why I gave them that rating.
That's all for what I thought. If anyone is interested I think I will be doing my how I take blog pictures pretty soon. Well I will if the heat decides to calm down and let me that is. Also I might snapchat a sneak peak since I just love it lately. I just have to wait for my lighting but I can do an indoor and outdoor edition too. I hope you enjoyed this more condensed review of the lipsticks and don't forget I linked both the in depth versions above. Have a lovely Wednesday or whatever day you're reading this!
