Hello, newest makeup obsession. The gloMinerals Suede Matte Collection was just released this spring and I have my hands on some beautiful shades to share with you. In a nutshell, these lip products are just like the ones by Nars, which it seems like everyone (myself included) has raved about, but —dare I say—these might just be better because they are more moisturizing while being just as long lasting. 

There are two different formulations that make up the Suede Matte Collection:

  • Suede Matte Stick: A slender stick, which offers a cream application that lasts for hours.
  • Suede Matte Crayon: A crayon-inspired pencil with a built in sharpener, which delivers precision and convenience in one.

Both formulas offer antioxidant protection and conditioning ingredients that include Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Mango Seed Oil and Shea Butter. Who would have thought you could have those amazing, moisturizing ingredients, while still having a matte lip? Apparently, it’s possible.

Also, the colors. They are amazing.

I have shades bombshell, monogram, and sorbet in the suede matte crayon, as well as shades bliss and pinup in the suede matte stick. I would love to try crush, pop, and memento, though!

Here they are swatched below:

If I had to pick one formula over the other, I think I prefer the crayon over the stick, just because I like the extra control… it’s almost like a liner and lipstick in one, which is awesome when dealing with extra bright colors (like Sorbet, which happens to be my favorite). And what’s even better than my liking them more than the Nars pencils? These cost $10 less!

    These look super moisturizing! It seems they provide great color too — which is sometimes hard to find in a crayon/stick product.

    You have your descriptions of the two products backwards. Just FYI.
