Color Studio Professional Matt Lipsticks
Color Studio Professional has recently launched in the UK with a good selection of colours and while I’ve never heard of this brand before now, it does seem to have been around for a couple of years at least. It’s on-line only at present, which would explain why it’s being so heavily sampled (globally) to bloggers – for visibility and accurate swatches, we’re the perfect vehicle to get the message out.
Despite professing to have a ‘break-though’ formula, I’m struggling to know what it is exactly. The colour range is pretty – and notably wearable; there is nothing to alarm those of us for whom a super-bright lip is a challenge although the shades are far more vibrant on the skin than they look in the bullet. I like the fact that the range is cruelty free and, unusually, made in Malta.
So from bottom to top: Heart Throb, Rebel, Twig, Korean Pop, Iced Mocha, Assassin, Crush, Dare Devil and Flirt. I think it’s the pricing that’s making me question these a bit – they feel like good, reliable, budget lipsticks but they’re £8.50 each. Up against at £30 lipstick, that is budget, but if you think Revlon lipsticks are £5.50, Rimmel, £4.99, Seventeen £4.99, Collection £3.99 and Bourjois, £8, it puts it more into perspective. I can’t work out who they’re targeting with this price point.
Anyway, perfectly good lipstick without being an amazing lipstick. The Color Pro Matt Lipsticks are HERE.
