MAKEUP GEEK ICONIC LIPSTICKS ‘MATTE FINISH’ ($15 each, $230 for the entire set of 20 and storage box)
The ICONIC lipsticks come in 2 finishes: MATTE and SHINE. They come in slim line rose- gunmetal tube with color indicators on the tops. There’s 10 of each finish and first we’ll be talking about the mattes.
The finish of these 10 is a velvet matte that long wearing without being drying. ALL SHADES ARE VEGAN
PROPER- muted bubblegum pink
LIVELY- plum with pink undertones
SAVVY- muted medium purple with pink undertones
VAIN- bright purple with pink undertones
RARE- cool toned light brown
QUIRKY- bold orange with red undertones
FIESTY- bright cool toned red
SAUCY- warm brick red
RISQUÉ- deep vampy red with berry undertones
Currently the bundle and the storage box are sold out but all the individual colors are still available. The darker colors, namely RISQUÉ and SAUCY, are a little on the dry side so I’d recommend using a lip balm first. The matte formula wears nicely for hours without fading but it isn’t transfer proof unless you set it. My favorite mattes are the light neutrals and SAUCY.
NAIVE- soft peachy nude
GIDDY- pinky coral
CLUMSY- warm muted coral
SHY- soft dusty rose
CANDID- muted rosey brown
SPOILED- cool toned plum
ELEGANT- classic pin up red with subtle cool undertones
WITTY- deep warm brown with red undertones
OFFBEAT- muted deep taupe
SHADY- blackened purple with berry undertones
The shine finish lipsticks aren’t as long wearing as the mattes but they’re very moisturizing and I really like the color selection.
My favs are NAIVE, SHY, CANDID and WITTY. I also really like GIDDY and CLUMSY but not on myself. I love colors like that on other people but they look stupid on me.
Overall I think MAKEUP GEEK did a great job with this release. I absolutely love the PLUSH CREME formula and the PLUSH MATTES are one of the most comfortable matte liquid lipsticks that I’ve ever tried. A few of the dark colors are a little patchy but that’s my only real constructive criticism. I definitely recommending picking up a few to see if you enjoy the formula as much as I do. I can’t wait for them to come out with more colors and different formulas!
