Memebox sent me this set of Evon cream matte lipsticks! They are part of Memebox’s latest collaboration project with Evon (makeupbyevon) and is part of the #HDReady Collection. The new trends to start paying attention to are matte lips and marsala! And I’m super excited by matte lips because I’ve always liked my lipsticks to be more matte than shiny. 😀

#3 Daring Marsala – sensual, bold, and rich wine aka Pantone marsala.

I was surprised to find out how much I loved Daring Marsala – it’s my favorite of the trio! I don’t know what it is, but that shade just works stunningly well with my skin tone. If I apply a light layer of Daring Marsala, it’s the most gorgeous color ever. And if I want a more vampy look, I can just do a few more layers.

The True Marsala was too orange for me, but I think with the right foundation/makeup, it would look amazing. And the Shy Marsala was quite light when I tried it on! It’s actually lighter than the natural color of my lips, which gave me a nude lip color that I really liked. 😀

Pros: I love how these apply! The application is so smooth and they don’t feel flaky afterward. I’ve tried Too Faced’s Melted Lipsticks and those are terrible in comparison. With the Too Faced products, it felt like I was caking on mud. But with these Evon cream matte lipsticks? I can barely feel the product but all the color is there!

Cons: Just one, actually. But for me, it’s kind of a big one. I really did not enjoy the scent/taste of these. They’re super floral and it’s not something I want near my mouth. :/ I was hoping that they would be minty or vanilla but unfortunately… it was not to be so. 😄

Otherwise, I really loved these! They were easy to use, smooth to apply, and the formula itself was creamy. They weren’t drying and the color definitely lasts.
