Talented

Rare Beauty Talented Kind Words Matte Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a faded, medium peach with brownish undertones and a semi-matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Lightweight, velvety glide-on feel
  • Applied evenly but settled slightly into lip lines
  • Average-wearing (four hours), non-drying

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.12 oz. - $166.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "buttery, pigment-rich, [and] soft matte" that gives "pure comfort all day." The shade range offered mostly opaque to fully opaque coverage in one layer, and the lipsticks applied smoothly without tugging or dragging, but they were not overly emollient--they had more of a velvety glide.

Some of the lighter shades were more prone to separate along deeper lip lines, though it wasn't really noticeable in person until a few hours into wear. I will note that this formula was one of the least likely to separate out of the more modern "soft matte" type of lipsticks that have launched in the last few years, so it was ultimately better than expected, even if not perfect! The more mid-tone and deeper shades were most forgiving, smoothest in appearance, and did last longer.

Most shades wore for around four hours with a few getting closer to five hours. They were more non-drying to barely hydrating, but the formula was comfortable enough to wear throughout the day.

It had a soft, sweet and floral scent that was hard to notice once on, and there was no discernible taste.

Talented is the kind of shade I want to see more of, but I’m totally finished with matte bullet lipsticks. I want something moisturizing, comfortable, and with a little bit of sheen or gloss.
