One reason this is an amazing matte lipstick is the formula. First, the Radical lipstick is extremely pigmented. Also, the matte lipstick is actually a semi-matte. Although, it is an intense semi matte that gives you full coverage. Even more, the long-lasting formula doesn’t bleed or crack! Think of this as a hydrating matte lipstick. The reason for this is the formula is infused with silky oils. Therefore, the lipstick is comfortable, and has a slippy smooth texture. Hence, it is easy to apply. Another thing I love is the Radical Matte Lipstick is not shiny like a satin finish, but it reflects more light than a matte lipstick.
Another reason you should try this one is the unusual packaging. First, the really thin rectangular tube, a rectangle, has shiny black lacquer body and a black matte lid. The thin tube, and the square bullet allows you to have a “tool” that gives you clean precision and control. Plus, the square shape of the bullet allows you to line your lips. All you need to do is use the high point of the square bullet to line your lips. Start at your Cupid’s bow and move outwards. Then, lay the bullet on its side to fill in your lips.
