MATTENE REVIEW | MAC COSMETICS

Overall, Mattene is impressive in its range of hues and shades (dirty corals to vibrant reds to deep berries) coupled with a deliciously smooth texture. One of my reasons for not owning many matte shades is due to the fact that they tend to be incredibly dry and without some sort of gloss, look quite awful on my lips. While I really am a gloss girl, so I doubt I’ll be sporting any of the true mattes (didn’t you know, half are semi-matte!) sans gloss, just because that’s a personal preference. Now, for those that love a great matte lip, look no further, Mattene lipsticks are the answer to that quest! You’ll find at least one color, if not a handful (armful?) that suits you beautifully. Remember, half are matte and the other half are semi-matte (you’ll see it noted in each individual product review); even the semi-mattes are incredibly close to being classified as a matte, so don’t let that put you off! My personal favorites were Seriously Rich, Immodest, Classic Dame, and Rapturous (bold colors I love, but how rarely I wear them!).

A SMOOTH NEW TAKE ON THE MATTE TEXTURE THAT MADE MAC FAMOUS: MATTENE. SLIM BY DESIGN, AND SLANTED PRECISION APPLICATION, THIS NEW LIPCOLOUR BLENDS THE VELVETY LOOK OF SEMI-MATTE WITH MOISTURIZING EMOLLIENCY OF A CREAMIER, SOFTER, GLIDE-ON LIPCOLOUR. THIS IS MATTE, MORE COMFORTABLE TO WEAR WITH NO COMPROMISE. STILL LONG-WEARING, STILL INTENSE DIEHARD MAC FANS WILL THINK OF THIS AS VINTAGE MATTE YET SLICKER, MODERNIZED, AND EVERYDAY, MORE WEARABLE. IT IS.
