My PR pack arrived yesterday, and I tried a beige-pink called Flattering for an event I hosted last night. It sure is creamy, but definitely still matte. (I find the science behind this more fascinating than stem cell research, I have to confess.)
I didn't use any pencil, and Mattene lasted through at least two Caffeine-Free Diet Cokes. There was still some color even after dinner. And they're not even pitching this as a long-lasting lipstick. I love this particular color, though am saddened by the fact that I am probably too old now to pull off the one I really want to try, a blood red called Classic Dame. Red is just so damned aging. I'll be beige-pink for life now, I guess.
