My darling friends, I do hope your day is going good. I was awoken this morning to the sound of my alarm clock going off. I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t ecstatic, I was simply exhausted. Then I realized. Who turned it off? It went off for a matter of seconds, but then poof gone. Just enough to pull me out of dreamland and into the world of…. tired.
But that is okay. I shall survive this monstrosity, this conspiracy against me sleeping.
So as a bit of a celebration of being “up” I give you a review!
Kleancolor Madly Matte Lipstick!
A while back, I posted that a review of GoodGoth.com. I am not going into the details of said review, but what I am going to say is THANK YOU!!!! to the lovely people that run that place. They have inadvertently created a monster. In the package, I received 3 lipsticks. And ERMERGERD! I am thrilled.
The lipsticks come in a black tube, with a circle of clear plastic around the middle, showing the shade that you have purchased. Written upon the side is the words, “Kleancolor” in bold lettering that is vertical, and “Madly Matte Lipstick” written horizontally to the brand name. The lettering is white and written in a delicate font.
When you first open the tube, the pigments are very noticeable. They are deeply colored, rich and vibrant. They give the thought of cream paint which I guess is what they are considering right? *laughs*
The second thing that you notice is the smell. I could feel it floating through the air like the aroma of the Gods. It smells GOOD. I don’t mean just good but GOOD. The scent is highly reminiscent of Fruity Pebbles. Seriously folks. FRUITY FREAKIN’ PEBBLES! It takes everything in me not to eat said lipstick. (As a bit of a note: My favorite cereal is now and always Fruity Pebbles. Just sayin!)
But getting back into the topic now that my Fruity Pebble daydreams are over.
The first color I am going to show you is shade #1 Artic.
Wow, I didn’t realize that the picture was the size of the moon. Sorry about that. It is a white shade that goes on smoothly and easily. The one problem that I have with it is coverage. If you are going for a simple look, not wanting the full effect of white lips, or just would like to tone down another color, this would work beautifully. I have worn this a few times over the past few months, but added a bit of black liner on the outer sides of my lips to give it a bit of contrast. Worked perfectly.
The next shade is #3 Catalina.
This shade also goes on very well. The color is a mix between Ice and Midnight blues. It gives that feeling of freezing, especially if you put it on subtlety. I find it goes very well with a dark eye look that makes your eyes look sunken. Yeah, I like that look. I admit it.
Lastly is my personal favorite. If you have been around long enough, you will understand.
As you can see, it is a deep lovely shade of black. You can also see that I do not have all those fancy smancy camera things. I have a phone cam. And it isn’t a good one either. *sad panda face inserted here*
As for coverage, my great googly moogly. Simply amazing. It flows on and the pigment is beautiful. This is a staple in my make up routine and I simply love it.
Kleancolor has really outdone themselves with this one folks. I simply love the coverage and the creamy feel of these products. The packaging is simple yet refined giving it an air of classiness. The scent alone on these makes my mouth water and makes me do happy dances when I put them on.
The one downside is the wear time. They fade quickly, after about an hour or so, and a kiss test is definitely a fail. While they are matte, they do not feel it. They thankfully are not glossy, but I am not sure if I could classify them as being matte.
Now, to explain the BEST part about these products.
They are cheap y’all. Seriously cheap.
If you go to ShopMissA.com you will find a lot of their products there. The site is $1 for everything. So WOO HOO.
I am truly amazed at these lipsticks and will buy them again. I am amazed at the quality of these considering how low their prices actually are. So Kleancolor, you get a big thumbs up in my book!
