Makeup on a Budget in Kuwait - Matte Lipsticks / Lip Paints

Image Courtesy- Carstina Blog - http://carstina.com/lime-crime-utopia-velvetine/
2014 was all about Matte Lipsticks and lipcreams. And the introduction of Matte Lipcreams / Lip Paints took it to a whole new level. Taking for example, the very hit Lime Crime Velvetines, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet (Read Review HERE), etc.

All these range from not less than KD4 - KD18. Wouldn't you love if you found the same formulation for less? Yes! That's why lets dig in...



You can find Matte Lipcreams all over Kuwait in almost every local makeup shops. Their brand differes depending on their production place. I've tried and tested so many of these that I know which one is gonna be worth spending even a buck!


They're normally called as Long Lasting Lip Gloss or Lipsticks. They range from price KD1 - KD5 max and can be found in almost every local Makeup stores across Kuwait.



The trick to find out which is actually a good pick; swatch a little on the palms of your hand, look around the store for 5 mins, then check back on your swatch. If the swatch has completely or semi - dried out, you've found a good stuff. And if after 5 mins the swatch remains wet and same when you had applied it, its a bummer!

Here's how the shades look when applied -->
Video Tutorial for both these looks is available on my YouTube Channel --> HERE

Hope this post helped you guys and you enjoyed reading it. Lemme know what local brands you've tried and how has it worked for you :)
