Review: Kevyn Aucoin Matte Lipstick in Relentless
I adore this formula. Kevyn Aucoin mattes are exactly what mattes should be - creamy, highly pigmented, and longlasting. This color, "relentless" seems a bit of a misnomer, as there is nothing particularly aggressive or obstinate about it; it is a sweet pink with a hint of peach to it that I find very flattering for spring. It doesn't settle into lines or highlight lip imperfections and it fades evenly but only after a good 4 hours of wear on me. I only have a slight beef with this line and that's in the packaging. I've several of the mattes now and every single one has the lipstick seated slightly askew in the tube. It doesn't really matter to the application but it bugs me a bit. It's as though they kind of threw it in there carelessly, which makes me a bit concerned about problems down the road with the product breaking off or the tube malfunctioning somehow. I'll update my review if that happens; for now, go forth and enjoy.
