I know there has been a hype surrounding matte liquid lipsticks, but I just can’t get on that wagon, I still prefer classic lipstick over liquid one. That’s why I purchased another matte lipstick today, but this time it’s my first lipstick (and product) from Lindex, well known Swedish brand. I wasn’t aware they had a make up range until I moved to Sweden, and the best thing is – their make up range is cruelty free with many vegan options, too!
Anyway, I don’t know if Lipstick Matt range is something new, but the samples I came across today were brand new so I suppose it might be (?). This range has only a few shades, I think it’s 7 of them, and I picked the darkest shade – PLUM. I tried it on quickly today and I like it in general – highly pigmented, not patchy, applies easily and smoothly, gorgeous deep shade and it is matte but not super matte which means it won’t be drying (probably, but I’ll see about that in a few days). The only thing I definitely don’t like is the strong scent it has. I dislike scents in general, unless they are really gentle, but this one is that typical old lipstick scent, if you know what I mean. I guess it’s safe to say that this is a classic lipstick after all. :D
Anyway, here’s a quick swatch on my skin and lips.
