That was a title and a half huh? Shockingly, when I ordered my Birchbox goodies I ordered these lipsticks. I know what you are saying, "Mandii, you HATE lipsticks, why on Earth did you get those?" I am kidding. I think you readers know me well enough to know that I LOVE lipstick and can't get enough! So when I saw these matte lipsticks in a 3 pack...I had to have them! Model Co is an Australian brand, and these lipsticks smell amazing! I purchased the Classic collection, and it came with 3 colors everyone needs in their lipstick arsenal.
Red Velvet, is just that. A beautiful, rich red. This is a true red, and not a tomato, orange-y red.
Peony, is a deep pink. It is not fuchsia, but a dark pink with hints of red.
Disco Fever, is a bright coral. It's bright.
Now, these Model Co lipsticks are matte. They are matte, with the slightest bit of sheen to them.Which means the staying power on these is incredible. I have found that Red Velvet, and Peony stay the longest. Disco Fever, the color wears off, but a stain is left on your lips afterward. I wore the red velvet shade through dinner, and drinking and it lasted! The difference between these lipsticks and other matte lipsticks, is how incredibly smooth these feel on your lips. These feel absolutely amazing on your lips, almost like a lip balm.
This collection is also available in neutrals! If you want to get your hands on these lip colors, you can get these in the Birchbox shop for $24.
Have you tried these lipsticks from Model Co? Did you receive a sample of them in your Birchbox? I'd love to hear from you! Leave me a comment and let me know!
