Yesterday, I posted swatches of some of my Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paints ($17.00 USD, available on their website). Today I’ll be swatching the remaining shades in my collection: Classy, Fame, Mary and Roulette. With the exception of Fame, these shades are brand new additions to the line.
- Classy – “dusty greyish pink” (I love this one!)
- Fame – “metallic copper” (This leans a little more rosy copper as opposed to orangey copper on me.)
- Mary – “metallic cranberry”
- Roulette – “maroon” (It has a bit of a purple undertone on me. This one can unfortunately go on a little patchy. If you take your time to build it up, you’ll be ok, but it is worth noting.)
Why You Might Like These:
- Vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free and paraben-free.
- They’re extremely pigmented.
- They dry to a matte finish and don’t transfer.
- They last a very long time on the lips so you won’t need to touch up often. If you do need to add more, however, these layer quite well without flaking or crumbling, so you won’t need to completely remove it and reapply.
- The formula is one of the less drying liquid lipstick formulas available.
- If you like Stila Baci or Dose of Colors Stone liquid lipsticks, Classy will probably be a favourite! The slight metallic finish of Fame and Mary makes them unique without being too intense, and Roulette is a gorgeous vampy colour!
- The Matte Lip Paint shade range is fairly wide (and they continue to come out with new colours) if you’re looking for something outside of these particular shades.
Why You Might Not Like These:
- If you don’t like a matte lip, you probably won’t like these unless you add gloss on top (which might affect the wear time).
- Though the metallic finish is subtle, you might want to steer clear of Fame and Mary if you want your lipstick to be completely matte.
- Roulette has a tendency to go on a bit patchy, so this particular shade takes a little more time and effort to apply properly.
- If you like your lipsticks to be hydrating, liquid lipsticks aren’t your best bet. While this formula doesn’t dry out the lips excessively, it doesn’t give them any moisture, either. You might want to opt for something with more of a sheen.
- While the wear time on these is excellent, this does make them a little harder to remove. You’ll probably need an oil-based remover to do the job properly.
- Coloured Raine is another company that you can only get online in Canada/internationally (and it’s only at limited retailers in the U.S.), so there’s a good chance you won’t be able to see them in person before you buy. They do, however, ship worldwide and, from my experience, it’s been very fast!
Which Matte Lip Paints are your favourites out of the ones I’ve swatched? Are there any others that you think I need to pick up? Let me know in the comments!
