Matte lip lacquers are the current big trend in makeup these days along with contouring kits. It's like every company is making them and charging arm and leg ( up to $25) for one matte lip gloss. Ya'll know I'm not down with that unless it's a shade or formula I must, MUST have. I was happy to find out and find that BSS ( beauty supply store) brand RK by Kiss did their own matte lip lacquer for only $3.99( the price at my local BSS). I grabbed up four shades:
Left to right: Ruby, Queen, Rosy, and Wonderland
Swatches left to right: Wonderland, Rosy, Ruby and Queen.
I have mixed feelings about them.....
#1 I don't like the lip lacquers that dry down matte. They are very uncomfortable on me. These don't dry down to a matte, so that didn't bother me.
#2 However, RK by Kiss Matte Lip Lacquers are a sliding mess. They slip and slide all of over your mouth. They have a mousse-y wet texture that you can't put on multiple layers. One light layer of color is almost enough.
#3 They are not that matte, more like satin. They are very pigmented though.
I doubt I'm pick up anymore shades. I watched Youtuber PlatinumD do a swatch video on these and none of the other colors are worth the run for.
