MAC Mattene Lipsticks 2011 Review and Swatches

I have always loved the feel of a MAC Mattene lipstick. From the velvet lipstick tube to the full pigmentation of the lipstick itself. I haven’t had a color I didn’t love. And these new Fall shades for 2011 are no exception. Completely sexy and perfect for all occasions.

Are you a Matte Lipstick wearer?


 With its streamlined design, this new slimline lipcolour, features the traditional glamour properties of a matte lipstick – intense colour and semi-matte velvety finish – while offering a creamier, softer, more glide-on application. Non-caking, non drying. Moisturizing and incredibly wearable yet absolutely matte.

  • Seeds of Desire– Deep wine with brown tones. This is a bit dark for myself but I find it on those with deeper skintones to be amazing.
  • Deliciously Forbidden– Opaque rose-berry. My fave as a semi bright lip
  • Naked Bliss– Opaque pink nude. Will cover up even the pinkest lips. If you have more color to your lips add a bit of concealer first.

Overall Thoughts

I love these colors. My fave is Forbidden Desire because it is bright but not too intense where you might feel self conscious in certain settings.  The colors last a long time and feel light as air on the lips. Add a little lip liner to the lips for the added curve and polished lips.
