Are Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Lipsticks Worth The Hype?

Any beauty aficionado literally will get chills when there's a new makeup launch. And seeing Fenty Beauty literally take over the beauty market last year has been nothing less than #magical to watch.

For the first time (for many of us), it felt like a brand was really listening to our needs and ensuring that color ranges were available for the fairest of the fair to the most chocolate of them all.

Recently, Fenty Beauty came out with 14 Mattemoiselle lipsticks, ranging from purples to blues to nudes and staple reds. Needless to say, the line has a ton of range and personality. Of course, the first thing I had to wonder was if these lipsticks, which claim to be, "long-wearing, petal-soft matte finish, created in a rainbow of weightless, color-intense shades designed to flatter all skin tones," are worth my COINT. Retailing at $18 a pop, they aren't the most expensive, but certainly are not the cheapest.

So I had to try them out for myself. Here are all 14 shades on my skin tone with no lip liner, some enviable dupes you can try if you're working on a budget (these are ones I already had in my makeup collection, but leave a comment below if you have more!), and ultimately, my verdict on the line:

Shade: “Freckle Fiesta”

Freckle Fiesta was by far one of my favorite colors in the collection, mostly because I love a great terracotta shade.

Shade: “Saw-C”

Dupe: "Orange Dream", ELF.

Shade: “Up 2 No Good”

Shade: “Ya Dig?!”

Shade: “PMS”

Smile, Sis! These Five Improvements Can Upgrade Your Oral Hygiene Instantly

Our teeth are connected to so many things - our nutrition, our confidence, and our overall mood. We often take for granted how important healthy teeth are, until issues like tooth sensitivity or gum recession come to remind us. Like most things related to our bodies, prevention is the best medicine. Here are five things you can do immediately to improve your oral hygiene, prevent tooth sensitivity, and avoid dental issues down the road.

Could The 'O Method' Be Just What You Need To Have The Sex You Want?

An author by the name of Alexandra Katehakis once said this about orgasms: “Great spiritual teachers throughout the ages have stated that orgasm is the closest some people come to a spiritual experience because of the momentary loss of self. Why is this true? Because with spiritual sex, you move beyond orgasm into a connection with yourself, your partner, and the divine — recognizing them all as one.”

If it’s counterintuitive to what you’ve ever thought about orgasms, believe it or not, there are even pastors who have said that climaxing is the closest comprehension of heaven on this side of it: it is an extreme kind of bliss that is indescribable and is best experienced between two people who share a sacrificial kind of love for one another.
