Ruby Kisses Matte Lipstick Haul & Swatches

Ruby Kisses Purple Affair Plum Wine Fuchsia Fierce Nude Rose Lilac Matte Lipstick

Anyone else going matte lip crazy right now? First, it was the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Next, was the Ruby Kisses Queen Matte Lip Lacquer. Then, I started digging the Sephora Cream Lip Stains. Now MAC is releasing a crap ton of new, permanent matte lipsticks after I already grabbed a handful of the new Ruby Kisses Matte Lipsticks. My pockets just can’t catch a break this summer!

Ruby Kisses describes the new matte formula as:

A long lasting formula with a smooth application that delivers full coverage color without leaving lips dry

Simple, right?

There’s an impressive 24 shades in the lineup ranging from nudes, pinks and purples to more funky colors like blue, grey and lavender. So far, I own:

  • Lilac
  • Plum Wine
  • Nude Rose
  • Purple Affair
  • Fuchsia Fierce

I’m still playing around with my new Sephora Cream Lip Stains so I haven’t tried these babies yet but the formula seems promising. For starters, people have been raving about them for months and they swatched rather nicely. They certainly didn’t feel like $3 lipsticks! Each shade was smooth, creamy and pigmented. I have pretty high hopes for them after falling all over the Matte Lip Lacquer formula. I can’t wait to go back for more of those!

Which shade should I try first?
