I received a full sized Absolute New York Matte Stick in NAF52 Dark Red in my Ipsy bag and it’s a true matte lipstick.
What’s to love?
The Absolute Matte Stick is what I consider to be a true matte lipstick. While it’s creamy it’s also a bit on the dry side. It took a bit of work to apply to my lips and I would recommend using a liner to keep it in place.
I found the color to be a bit too red for my liking but it is pretty and I bet it would look great on someone with a darker complexion. I felt like I looked a bit too goth! The lipstick has no scent and great staying power too. It felt like a good quality lipstick at $4.99 although it is made in PRC which is the People’s Republic of China.
Absolute New York is a new brand for me and their motto is Discover Beauty with an Urban Edge and their new Cotton Candy liners look neat.
