Editor's Review

Anastasia Resin Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, purplish taupe with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not quite opaque, with a lightly creamy texture that tugged on the lips a bit but was not as stiff or firm in the tube compared to the majority of shades in the formula. I did notice, however, that this shade seemed prone to emphasizing my lip lines as the color split around them. On me, the color lasted for five hours and felt non-drying but the color did pull into my lip lines more as it wore on.

I bought this as a replacement for Colourpop Mess Around, which I loved. The Colourpop liquid lipstick expired very quickly and I wanted a bullet version of the shade that would last longer. Resin is a bit grayer and darker than Mess Around but is close enough to serve the same purpose. The other lipstick I considered was Nyx Stone, but I decided this was a better match. I was hoping I could make this more versatile but sheering it out, but the formula doesn't lend itself to that. You have to go full opaque or it will be patchy. However I have had a good time layering it with various other lipsticks to mute them. I have worn this on its own and it has performed well but my favorite use for it currently is as the dark shade in an ombre nude lip. I apply Resin to the outer thirds of my lips and then a nude like Bobbi Brown Uber Beige in the center, and it has an edgy but wearable effect. The main reason I took a star off is that it will crumble when I reapply, so I have to wipe some of it off and make sure I don't have any dry patches. I recommend using a lip brush. However I think this type of issue comes down to your own genetic makeup, so if you typically have this problem with deep, matte shades then Resin won't be any different. I prefer the MAC formula for deep matte lipsticks. But it isn't bad enough to keep me from wearing this - just make sure to start with smooth lips and you'll have a good time.
