One thing I don't like about matte lips in general is that they tend to look too chalky and accentuate dry lips, but these apply quite smoothly on bare lips - however, they don't apply so well on top of lip balm. I like that it's a twist up stick which allows for a more precise application. The colour payoff for these lip crayons are pretty good too - the above swatches were not swiped more than twice. It's not the most impressive in terms of lasting power, but the colours do fade nicely on the lips instead of settling in the fine lines and looking chalky.

I would definitely recommend the Velvet Matte Lip Colors - especially if you want to try matte lips without forking over a lot of money.

How do you feel about matte lips?
