Manhattan Cosmetics Soft Mat Lip Cream 95G

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product that’s been living in my cosmetic bag for quite some time – Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Cream 95G. These Manhattan lip products have hit the Poundstores (different shades are available), so I thought it’s time for a review. 🙂

So how’s the product? I think it’s not great. This lip cream applies like liquid velvet (it feels amazing), but within a few minutes it dries down to a matte mess. It feels very drying, it doesn’t look good or natural, and the pale nude colour makes me look ill. If you’re wondering why I’ve chosen such a light shade… well, this was the darkest (or the 2nd darkest) available shade. I expected something else…

Having said that, I found a way to make the product work for me! I use it as a base for all those uber-creamy lipsticks that don’t last or tend to bleed. Guess what? It works! Perfectly! You could say the dry lip cream and those uber-creamy lipsticks cling to each other!

All in all, I have no reason to complain. This lip cream has given me the chance to wear a number of different lipsticks that I didn’t think I’d be able to wear at all (well, at least not without checking my lips every half hour…).
