Mellow creamy matte lipstick review and swatches
Today I tried out two of the creamy matte lipsticks by mellow cosmetics. Mellow was founded in 2014 and they are a cruelty free, vegan, and paraben free brand. These lipsticks are described as “highly pigmented, richly formulated, and long wearing. The formula glides on smoothly leaving a velvety-smooth, moisturizing finish”. The lipsticks do have a chocolate cookie smell that is not overpowering at all and does not stay on the lips too long. The color I tried first was Posh, a brown nude. It glides on perfectly and feels velvety on the lips as promised. Usually when I take off lipsticks my lips feel dry and irritated because of the face wipe I use but with this one my lips actually felt very hydrated which I loved. The color payoff is good, you only need to apply once or twice to get a nice opaque layer. I really liked this color. It wasn’t quite as long-wear as I hoped and it wasn’t transfer proof like most mattes but it made up for that in moisture and texture. It was overall very comfortable. mellow - Creamy Matte Lipstick The second shade I tried was Candy Floss which was a bright pink with a slight purple undertone. I did not enjoy this one quite as much as Posh. It had a sliiiiightly grainy texture that Posh did not. This wasn’t too bad or noticeable, it just was not nearly as smooth and creamy as the other shade. This shade has great color payoff as well, I only had to swipe it twice across my lips for a great coating. It was pretty much the same when it came to hydration which I liked, but when I took it off it left a little bit of staining that I had to work harder to scrub off. The same thing happened when I swatched it on my arm. Overall, this shade was a pass from me because the quality wasn’t as excellent as the nude shade, but it was passable for such an interesting color. mellow - Creamy Matte Lipstick All in all, I’d say mellow cosmetics is an interesting brand worth exploring but I’d be more confident recommending the nude shades of the creamy Matte lipstick formula than the bright colors. Let me know your thoughts!
