Its safe to say that I am loving red lips at the moment . Usually, I am drawn to the boldest and brightest shades in a line but I wanted to try something different so I opted for number 201 .
The Lip Maestro's are not the usual run of the mill matte liquid lipsticks . They are incredibly saturated and rich in pigmentation but what truly sets them apart is how the feel on the lips . In my experience most matte lip products feel caked on and dry on the lips . The Lip Maestros feel like a whipped mousse on the lips and easily last 6-7 hours . My lips never felt dry or chapped and out of the all the matte lip products I have tried , these are by far the most comfortable to wear .
201 in particular is a dark and deep red . The name Red Velvet is befitting for this very heavily burgundy based red . It almost looks like dried blood on the lips ( Gross I know , but there is no better way to describe its complexity). Most of the red lipsticks I own have very apparent undertones or are quite bright . I found 201 to be quite eye catching without being the usual pin up inspired red .
Overall , I would highly recommend the Lip Maestros and especially 201 if you a fancy a slightly unconventional approach to a red lip .
