New Favorite Matte Lip Color

1024 672 Brighter BOLD by Cara Newhart

This new obsession (which is actually the name of the color, haha) was an accident. I bought this lip color because I was just wandering around target, but oh my  goodness. I must admit I am normally kind of a lipstick snob.

I rarely buy drugstore brands if I'm looking for a long-wear lipstick, since a lot of them usually just end up feeling waxy or goopy, ew. My usual go to's are Stila (Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick) and Kat Von D (Everlasting Liquid Lipstick). Both of those are $24+, and while I don't mind that price tag at all for lipsticks that are my faves, having an option that is less than half the price never hurts.

Ok, first things first, for as bright and pigmented as the shades are, this lip color feels amazingly light. The wax free formula is  moisturizing, and velvety, and you forget you are even wearing it. 
 
It has a plush applicator and goes on like a lip gloss, with out the sticky. It also smells amazing! Unlike some drugstore brands which smell like plastic or paint, this lip color has a fresh mango + whipped vanilla fragrance.

Long-wear wise, it is a bright shade that wears down naturally into a lip stain.
It's not the stick-to-your-lips-and-flake-off variety. It does wear more like a gloss and less like a long-wear liquid lipstick, a.k.a. it will rub off some on your straw or coffee cup.
 
I love this lipstick for the price (Under $10) and the fact that it has a natural stained look when it wears off instead of clinging to you lips in weird places as a last ditch effort to make you believe it's long-wear.

What do you think? Is this lip color worth grabbing on your next Target run? Leave a comment below or use #NSBbeauty
