Today we will be taking a look at a lipstick made by Absolute New York. It is a Matte Stick in the color “dark red“. They do come in other colors such as Burgundy and Old Maude which I haven’t tried yet. I received this in my Ipsy bag from November. If you aren’t familiar with Ipsy it is a company that sends you a bag every month with different sample products that you can try for only $10.00 a month, it’s great. You can write reviews on their app or website in order for them to get better with customizing what products they choose for you based on the styles of things you like.
For the most part, I tend to like everything they put in my bag except for a few certain things like regular nail polish because I get gel which lasts longer, regular polish tends to chip too quick. I tried on this color and I love it- I’m pretty picky when it comes to a lipstick color. It really makes your lips POP and makes your teeth look really white. I love red lipstick I find it liberating. I actually tried this lipstick on with my wedding dress and all of the girls at the bridal salon commented that they really liked it and that I should wear this color for the wedding. I would love to show you a pic but can’t post that until after the wedding:) Whether you have a tan, are tan naturally or are on the pale side it looks great on every shade of skin. I’ve tried it both on both with my regular color and after a semi dark spray tan. What I love most is that it lasts for hours and doesn’t come off. I’ve had this on after eating and drinking and it stayed on perfectly. The only thing I don’t love is that it can be a bit feathery and kind of run a bit onto your skin- especially if you don’t blot. I definitely recommend blotting onto a napkin or tissue at least once or twice after applying this product.
Since it is matte it doesn’t glide across lips as easily as some other lipsticks, I would recommend putting a layer of chapstick on your lips before applying the lipstick. It’s creamy and comfortable and lasts for hours. It goes for about $5.99 to $6.99 on average depending on where you purchase it from- definitely worth the money.
I HIGHLY recommend this product for all of your holiday parties!
And my absolute favorite thing besides that this lipstick is awesome and lasts- the manufacturer Absolute New York does NOT test on animals or condone such manufacturing practices. Their products are also formulated with ingredients that have not been tested on animals. Being pretty much a life long vegetarian this matters to me a lot and is a big thing I look into before purchasing any makeup.Absolute New York product lines can be purchased at select affiliate retailers, I’ve seen Sears, Wal-Mart, Jet.com, and Ebay specifically do carry them online. Considering that I used this product without knowing the price I thought it would be definitely in the higher price range.
