One day, I was shopping at Sephora looking for blush, and the Patrick Ta Major Beauty Headlines Matte Suede Lipstick caught my eye. Perhaps it was the glamorous packaging with gold and mirror surface glimmering as the sun hit the mirror part as if to say, “come see me”!
Well, I think you know I answered the invite, as I have not one but five lipsticks! I don’t need any more lipsticks, reeeeally, but these were just too compelling not to purchase!
Since I have them, I figure I should tell you about them.
About the Lipstick
The Patrick Ta Major Beauty Headlines Matte Suede Lipstick has a lot of pigment. The color deposit is SOLID, as in what you see from the tube is what you’ll get on the lips! The full coverage from this lipstick is unreal – one good swipe, and you don’t even see your natural lip color!
The formula is long-lasting and takes hours before any touch-up is needed. As in all lipsticks, be careful when you put a face mask over this, as it can transfer and stain your face.
As the name indicates, this has a matte finish. For those who have been stigmatized by the experience of dry and chapped lips left behind by using matte lipsticks, this one does the opposite. It’s creamy and non-drying, so it applies smoothly. If your lips are dry, I suggest that you exfoliate before application for better adherence and even coverage (avoid that dry, patchy lip look).
The colors are beautiful and bold. This lipstick is definitely for those who want that pop of color: orange-red, true red, deep wine, and hot pink. They have one neutral color that has a warm peachy color. This is one of my favorite neutrals as it doesn’t make my lips look pale and compliments my olive skin tone.
Here are the different shades for reference:
Oh, She’s Single – neutral nude
She’s Hard to Get – vibrant pink
She’s Not From Here – orange-red
That’s Why She’s Late – true red
She Must Be New – deep wine
Good to Know
The great thing about matte lipsticks is the versatility to go from matte to glossy. Layer on a lip balm as a base, or add your favorite lipgloss on top for a shiny finish.
In a pinch (or minimizing how much to take to travel), this can double up as a blush too! Just be sure to use little and build up as this has an intense pigment.
Oh, and I want to point out the gritty appearance when you open the lipstick. Don’t worry; there’s zero grit texture upon application.
Matching Lip Liner
Because this lipstick is super pigmented, you’ll definitely need to line the lip edges for the perfect pout. Apply the lipstick with the Patrick Ta lip brush for that precise line and fill application or use the Patrick Ta Monochrome Moment Precision Lip Crayon (same shades as the lipstick).
Overall, I’m impressed with this line! I thought the color saturated the lips, was long-lasting, non-drying, and didn’t bleed.
