Going Matte with a Swipe








Can you go from a creamsheen finish to matte one in a single swipe? Saturated Colour just released this magic product that does exactly that. It's called Make Me Matte* and I was kindly sent this to test and report back to you guys. 

I often struggle with my lipsticks because as much as I love satin or more moisturising lip products, they do tend to bleed easily and often don't last longer than 2 hours on busy days. I also prefer comfortable lightweight lipsticks rather than drying ones and that can be hard to find. 

In the past I tried tricks like applying powder to mattify my favourite shades but personally it didn't always work for me, besides, you can't really carry your powder around in case you need to re-fresh your look throughout the day. (you could but I ain't got time for that) 

Make Me Matte looks like a lip balm but you literally apply it on top of any creamy lipstick to visibly see the finish of it change. It's kind of intriguing to witness. I like the fact that this magic wand provides a diverse prospect for all us beauty lovers - satin one day, matte the next, especially if you're on a budget and you wouldn't want to buy the same shade twice just to get a different effect. 

It's not messy, it's affordable (only £8.00) and it works. The only thing I noticed is that it can transform the colour a little bit, making it lighter. In that case I just tend to layer; lipstick - matte me - lipstick - matte me, and it stays on for ages. Personally I would advise to tap on the lips rather than swipe, especially if you're wearing darker colours and you want precision on the edges but other than that I really can't find any faults with this. 

It works! 
Is this something you may be interested in trying? Let me know what you think in the comments xoxo

  3. It does sound like an interesting product! I don't like the new name they have come up with for the brand, i definitely preferred the old one.

  5. This sounds like such a good product! I don't usually want to part with my money for a matte lip product as they are so drying!! So this could be the perfect product! x

  6. This sounds really cool! I find matte lipsticks so hard to wear because my lips get so dry so this could be a good alternative!

  9. The photography here is stunning! I've also never heard of this brand. I love a moisturising lipstick because more often than not I find a matte dries my lips out and makes them look a bit rank :(
