Review: Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor

"Lipstick can't solve all problems, but its a pretty great start"

Yes indeed! This is the reason why a girl can't have too many lipsticks, can she? It doesn't how bad the day was, a good lipstick can definitely save a part of the day. A few weeks back I've received a set of goodies courtesy of Silky Girl Philippines. A sneak peak was shown earlier here. Does Silky and matte go well together? Let us find out with our review of Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor!



What is it? 
Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor
This matte Lipcolor is formulated with Shea Butter, Safflower oil and Papaya extract to moisturize, nourish and smoothen lips. With its long-lasting light texture, you can now go about your day comfortably, and confidently.

Glides easily
Long-lasting
No Fragrance
No carmine and free from animal testing.

Packaging
I really like the transparent middle of Silky Girl's lipstick tube. I can immediately see the shade of the lipstick without looking at the bottom. The bottom of the lipstick tube actually bears the shade number and shade name. I think the names are well thought of.

Due to my careless I lost the cap of Shade 10 Spicy Marsala and it even was my favorite color from the bunch. :(



Experience
There are 10 shades in total and they sent me their newest shades! Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor is my very first lip product from Silky Girl. I remember doing swatches on my hands when I was at their Landmark kiosk a few months back.

Silky Girl Go Matte is a non-drying lipstick and I can sing praises for its consistency. For me its like putting on butter because it glides on easily unless you have severe chapped lips. For that, you can always wear lip balm underneath so it will not be a problem. I tested this applied on dabbing motion (to make it look like tint) and if applied heavily. When dabbed, the product only lasts for one hour (or less!) because I have a bad habit of biting my lips. However when I heavily applied it on it lasted 3 hours! I do not mind reapplication because its like adding moisture to my lips once again, thank you shea butter, safflower oil and papaya extract! 

All shades leave some sheen which makes my lips look hydrated! You see, its not so matte as the name suggest but I can blot off the sheen to make it matte! 2-in-1 product teehee. In case you are wondering yes I do use it on my cheeks as well. I am fond of using lip products on cheeks to make it match.

Kudos also for not adding carmine and not testing this lipstick on animals, thank you! thank you!

First time to do swatch fest (yes I know its messy huhu..)



Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Daring Pink


07 Daring Pink - Reddish pink
For me is not as daring pink as it says. This shade has more red in it than pink. The shade instantly brightens up my complexion! Its sort of hot pink with a mix of red. Its just the right kind of bright color which can make you feel young.

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Foxy Red

08 Foxy Red - Warm orange red
This red is a mix of orange and red. Its like a warm orange which can be mistaken for nude but I like it. This is a great everyday color in replacement to red or the usual nude shades. Orange depicts youthfulness and freshness! I am not sure if I am making sense here but try it. This shade will definitely lift up your spirits.

This particular shade however, has the tendency to make me look orange because I have warm undertone so I won't use this during summer. The shade would also looks good both on fair and morena skin.

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Loud fuschia

09 Loud Fuchsia - Cool blue based pink
Its a cool bright pink which can make you look younger. Wearing this makes me look young with positive vibes. Its such an awesome bold color. Fret not, this color is very wearable. During the days wherein you want to have the Barbie doll look this will be your best bet! If you are not a fan of heavily applied lipstick then try my tinted way of application by dabbing it on your lips.

Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor in Spicy Masala

10 Spicy Masala - Brick Red shade
I like how it makes the person stand out with its unique color. Its brick red shade which leans more on brown is perfect for days when you want something different from your everyday pink or nude. This is actually my favorite shade out of all four.

See how all colors pop? They are so lively, the color payoff is amazing! The shades are pretty and lasted pretty long. This is not your typical matte lipsticks because its lightweight, layering is fine and there won't heavy feeling on your lips. There also won't be any uncomfortable feeling, bleeding or dryness at all.

How much and where to buy?
Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor is sold at Silky Girl kiosks for P279.

What I don't

TIPS 
  • To use Silky Girl Go Matte as tint, dab it on instead of swiping it on. 
  • To make the color last longer remove the moisture on the lips by using tissue then apply baby powder to slightly mattify and seal the lipstick on
Will I repurchase? 
I would love to get my fave shade once I finish it. Its such a rare color!




Overall~ 
Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor exceeded my expectations and I love the variety of shades! I am glad they released this line in the Philippines. I find myself reaching for Silky Girl Matte tubes nowadays because its non-drying formula which is perfect for the cold weather. I recommend this to girls who likes healthy yet matte lips. You will definitely love the creamy consistency and opaque color, one swipe and you are good to go!

Indeed wearing Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor might not solve all problems but it surely brightened up my day!
