If you are from the Philippines, I am sure you already know what fluffmattes are. It created a buzz since their launching day and up until now people are scouting to grab a hold of these lipsticks. It is still sold out as of the moment! Crazy, right?! It’s been two weeks already!
The collection has 9 shades and it claims to be a modern matte lipstick. With their tagline, “beauty that gets you” they also claim that their shades are universally flattering. The lipsticks are paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free and cruelty-free.
Luckily, I got three shades for myself and they were all beautiful! I was originally planning on getting all the 5 nudes but their website kept on crashing and their physical stores have blockbuster lines. Some lined up for 2-4 hours!
I can describe the packaging as minimalist, chic and classy. It really does target the millennial market. I like that they put the shade name at the bottom with the corresponding shade color (lol this is redundant but you get it, right?).
As for the performance, there is no tugging when you apply it, the opacity is a one swipe goodness. You can already feel how buttery and creamy the formula is on the first swipe. It is also lightweight which is a plus considering that it is matte. It does not accentuate dry patches and lines on the lips but for the longevity of the product, it does stay for a pretty long time and does leave stains. The staying power is amazing for a bullet-type lipstick but not as good as the liquid ones are.
The swatches above are of three different lighting. From top to bottom: Nudist, Girl Crush and 143.
I got the shades Nudist, Girl Crush and 143. They were all flattering on my skin color. The price point is reasonable for its performance. Nudist is the perfect nude for me but if you are darker than NC25, this might wash you out. Girl Crush is also a nude but leaning on red. 143 is mauve color and this I think will suit a lot of skin tones.
THE VERDICT: Worth the hype! But will I line up for this for hours? Probably no. Will I recommend? Yes.
Lip swatches below are: first – Nudist; second- Girl Crush; third – 143
