Dead Roses

Anastasia Dead Roses Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer with a featherweight feel on the lips. The consistency was dense and firm, so there was slight tugging on the lips as I glided the lipstick across my lips, though it still applied the color evenly. Despite the firmness of the formula, it was comfortable to wear and non-drying over the five and a half hours it lasted for.

The formula is supposed to have “full-pigment” with a “smooth, ultra-matte finish.” Since the description was a little light, I also watched the brand’s video, where the formula is also supposed to be comfortable to apply and not settle in lip lines. The best aspects of the formula are how lightweight it felt on–almost like nothing on, so despite being more matte and denser, not heavy or clingy–and that most shades have been non-drying (so far).

There has been some transfer, and the finish is mostly matte but not “ultra-matte” (certainly not as flat or matte as their liquid lipsticks, as an example). Some shades have emphasized my lip lines from a texture standpoint or due to color settling into them, but it depended on the shade. The wear has ranged from four and a half hours to eight hours, and some of the richer shades can survive a moderate meal and definitely drinking coffee. I found the texture to be the drawback; the lipstick is incredibly firm and dense with little to creaminess, which resulted in an application that tugged and pulled on the lips. It was also the type of texture that caught on flakes, so regular exfoliation is key. There were a few shades that were creamier and thicker on the lips, which were more comfortable to apply, but the majority were quite firm. (They also did not get softer with use.)

Rogue

Anastasia Rogue Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark, brownish red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It will wear down to a matte finish within an hour or with a light blotting, though. It had rich, opaque color payoff that applied evenly. The texture was slightly creamier than most in the range and just barely tugged when applied directly from the tube onto the lips. I found the formula non-drying, while the color lasted for a solid six hours on me.

Latte

Anastasia Latte Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage–that applied even, smooth coverage on the lips, though the lipstick itself was firmer and tugged on the lips as I tried to glide it across them. The consistency felt very lightweight on the lips, thin in a way but not clingy. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and had a bit of color that pulled into my lip lines over time.

Where are these made? The bulk of her brand’s products are made in China, I believe and wondered if these were too.
Just wondering if you could include where products are made in your reviews? I tend to stay away from makeup and beauty products made in China, no matter if it is a dept/Sephora/Ulta store, sold brand or an independent brand.

I’m not sure – all my boxes were recycled over the weekend, and it doesn’t state it on the images of the boxes I do have (front where it lists the oz. and the ingredient list).

I believe made in China, as a youtuber Nikkia Joy said so in her lip swatches. By the way, I’ve been reading and enjoying your reviews and other people’s comments as a long time lurker and never commented before. A big thank you to you for all your testing and thorough reviews 😀

My pleasure, Marilyn! Normally, it’s somewhere near ingredients so I capture it, but nope, not this time. Strange to hear they are in China, though.

Andddd, I just remembered I accidentally ordered two of a shade and still have that in the box. Yes, it says Made in PRC on the box.

They are made in China, Nikkia Joy read off the box in her lip swatch video.

I 100% understand people are concerns with products made in China. From not properly run manufacturing ethics, to production standards, and the government needing anime testing in their own market. But I trust consumer brand to make their own factory rules as well.

Good luck on the NFPRC. Don’t try to buy any thermometers NFC. There aren’t any. Oh, yeah, maybe your NFC is based on animal testing. Mine was based on adulterated dog food/treats. Funny how if you are allowed to ask the origin question, many cos/retailers will not answer, if it is from the PRC. Deceptive practices. I’d only order from a place with a known good return policy, check the particulars, not open the product, and return if necessary. You do know that the bar code is not infallible as country of manufacturing origin, right?

It never occurred to me that ABH would be made in China. I just checked my MR palette and it was made in the USA. But their waterproof creme color eyeshadow that I just bought was made in China, but it also says it’s cruelty-free.

I think adding where products were made would be an interesting addition to the reviews.

Products are only non-cf if they are SOLD in China. China requires animal testing for products that are sold in China but not made in China. So, being made in China actually means that ABH can sell to China and still not test on animals.

Now, does this mean that products manufactured in China, but destined for elsewhere do NOT have to be animal tested? Or can we not believe anything anyone says any more? Maybe the latter.

From what I understand, China requires imported cosmetics to be subject to animal testing before they can be sold in the Chinese market. I believe they lifted the requirement for cosmetics manufactured in the country in 2014? (Someone correct me if I’m wrong). So, ABH may still be cruelty free 🙂

It’s only product sold in a store location in China that has to be animal test by law. A lot of brands would be 100% cruelty-free if they didn’t sell in stores in China. Benefit, Make Up For Ever, Estee Lauder/MAC and now NARS has to let third parties test on animals due to China law the sell in a store. Buth with brands like ABH and even Wet n Wild is cruelty free because they are not sold in the Chinese market at all.

There are other brands that sell only to China through an online purchase that can stay cruelty-free as well because it’s direct to home sale and not placed on shelves first. If Urban Decay wanted to, they could sell to China online, but their issue is they want a store foothold and storage warehouses in that country before having an online store presence. We’ve only been able to get Urban Decay in Canada the past 3 years where as before I would have to import the brand through Sephora first.

I’m not sure when China will go cruelty-free but that fact that they have a review board for non-animal testing methods it probably the first time they have ever consider it. It’s also a reflection of the growing middle class that is pushing for it more now as well. I’m hopeful it’s just matter of how efficient the board will be at proving the other more efficient methods are and how long the laws takes to change.

In addition to comments on the animal testing and manufacturing practices, I would add that in this age of global production chain, Made in Somewhere doesn’t really say anything about the product. An Ipad can have a made in China label, but a classic study showed that the largest component of value added is accrued to the USA.

In terms of makeup this is likely true as well since the value added largely lie in product developmemn and marketing, which come from USA.

I think the texture is what will make this a no-go for me, I like a little bit of creaminess, although these sound like very wearables mattes. I love the color of Dead Roses but I have many of the dupes (in fact, I am wearing Amorous today), so hopefully that will keep me from buying it!

Eek these are killin me! I love all 3, especially Dead Roses. That one has top 10 on the cutthroat lipstick holder by my doorway mirror potential. That’s serious business right there! But the deal breakers are knives in my heart. I hate that clinging feeling when applying matte dry lipstick, plus having to exfoliate and settling into lip lines …I think the cons won. But maaaan those are beautiful shades!

Dead Roses is going to be my *perfect* MLBB (and darker) lipstick! As much as I will forever love and use to death my tubes of MAC Mehr and also Cosmo, I really dig this deeper, moodier MLBB shade going into our eventual cool season.
I also find Latte and Rogue very appealing, too. But for those, I’m thinking that I may already have far too many similar shades to both to justify buying either one.

Good to see that at least the first set of lipsticks did really well after how Subculture and the first liquid highlighters proved to be such pains in the tush!

Looks like Dead Roses is a winner! I really don’t need any more lipsticks but I can’t resist that name.

Nice. All three. Thank you, Rogue, for saving me from F3, Birkin Brown, and Dark Matter 4. Those have always been back burnered (reserved for the ought nots and not quite great enough for the WL.). Alabama is much redder and a tad cooler, prob only a 75-80 dupe for me. And the fact that Rogue was hauled on NLD on a 342 will make it dear to my heart. Dead Roses and Latte might make the cut in a similar fashion, if the formula is a go.

Phew! Dead Roses is one of the 3 I ordered. (Kind of bummed my order hasn’t shipped yet since I paid for upgraded shipping.) I’ve been worried about the new mattes since I received the less than impressive palette. I’m hoping that the other 2 I ordered review well. And of course depending on the rest of your reviews of these, might pick up a few more…. Thanks for your review! (As always.)

I just responded to Rachel on Dead roses (so you’ll see that). I love the lavender twist in Dusty Mauve. Resin may be a bit more challenging for me to wear as it’s greyer than I thought it would be on swatching. I assume over actual lips though, and mine are pigmented, that will help me not look too much like the walking dead! Otherwise, I have a ton of toppers to make it work. I am happy the quality is better than the palette 😉

It’s ok. I think receiving the ABH after the McGrath, I’m a bit prejudiced. The McGrath are all gorgeous, pigmented, and creamy. The ABH are not creamy. There’s a bit of tug on application. All 3 I bought provide opaque coverage; although Resin needed a bit of going over (not opaque in a single swipe). Dead Roses is a smoky twist on a traditional rose matte. I do like the shade. And, it’s certainly WAY better than their subpar palette!

As soon as you said it caught onto flakes I was out. I almost bought these because of the promo they were running but now I’ve saved some money. Thanks!

The possibility of them flaking is drawing me away. My lips flake easily on stick lipstick and I hate to do sugar scrubs every night. I will wait on these.

Yeah, I don’t think the formula will be most forgiving, even if it doesn’t feel drying on at all – but let us know if you give the formula a try, Mo!

Love all these colors, kind of glad I held off on Dead Roses, as I already have the Maybelline dupe, will need to see how close they are before deciding

According to Urban Dictionary, ‘Dead Roses’ means ‘a girl that has such a terrible attitude or is just a bitch in general you would only give her a dead rose for a flower.’

According to Carbon-Footnote-Defined.com, a ‘Dead Roses’ symbolize ‘sadness, the end of a relationship, something broken.’

According to Ezinearticles.com, ‘Dead Roses’ means, ‘It’s over, loud, clear, and in a tacky and less than classy way.’

And then there’s the very sad lyrics to ‘Deadroses.’

And so on.

I was curious, so I googled. Now it’s the name of a lipstick. Okay — did someone at ABH have a bad day?

I’ll have to swatch the ones that have caught my eye in store to see which ones tug the least. But, I’m glad that Rogue did well – I’ll definitely keep an eye on that.

I love the shade and the name of “Dead Roses.” It’s going on my wish list.

I’m so glad to hear the formula is non-drying, and see these good grades. I was going to wait for reviews, but the two for one lipstick day sale was too tempting, and I ordered the three gray shades. I feel much relieved now.

I really had planned to purchase the Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick in 408 Dark Nude….but when I saw your swatches for that lipstick and Anastasia’s Rouge….The shades look the same!!!! I don’t know which one to buy now! I slightly want both haha. Which formula do you prefer?

I prefer something more hydrating/comfortable, so I’d be more inclined to go with Burberry’s formula myself, though I do think these are pretty easy to wear (I did often forget I had one on!), so the price point would make it a lot harder to go with Burberry.
