AAAH! Finally. A matte lipstick that doesn’t leave my lips feeling like I just finished the Iron Man Triathlon. I’ve been looking for an affordable deep bordeaux shade with a matte finish to wear with my button-up plaid shirts and vintage plastic choker necklaces from the ’90s (you know I’m kidding about the necklaces, right?!), and Topshop’s $10 Lip Bullet in Wine Gum is filling my heart-shaped box to the brim.
Three things: one, I like this product’s name. Wine Gum. That’s just neat to me. 🙂
Second, I like the way Wine Gum feels and works. The moisturizing, super pigmented formula (unscented and unflavored) starts off with a hint of shine, then dries down to a flat matte before eventually transitioning into a matte stain.
Third, I like the price. It’s only $10.
Oh, and I also think the crayon packaging is hella cute.
If you aren’t able to find Wine Gum online, check Topshop or Nordstrom, if you’re so inclined. Topshop also has these Lip Bullets in other colors, too, like fun oranges and reds, and I have spotted those shades available online at nordstrom.com for $10.
