I'm delighted to get my mitts on the ever hyped Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipsticks. The collection features daring bright shades but I opted for the more everyday work-safe colours. I've compared them to a few lipsticks from my collection. Here are my thoughts.

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Spanked is a midtone coral rose colour with a creamy finish. I've compared it to my other lipsticks below:
  • MAC Cosmo Lipstick is more pink.
  • MAC Persistence Lipstick is more brown.
  • MAC Retro Lipstick is a close dupe but a little darker.
  • Sephora Lucky One Lipstick is more pink.

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in S1ngle is a midtone matte peach. I don't seem to have a reasonable dupe for this in my collection!
  • MAC Freckletone Lipstick is more yellow and a glossy lustre semi-opaque shade.
  • MAC Kinda Sexy Lipstick is more pink.

IN SUMMARY:

The Good
  • Beautiful rose gold packaging
  • Slim and sleek design
  • Soft pigmented matte finish, reminiscent of the NARS Audacious lipsticks
  • FB embossed detail on the top of the lipstick looks classy
  • The UK price is £16 per tube, which is comparable to a cost of a MAC lipstick (£16.50)

The Bad
  • The glossy metallic packaging attracts fingerprints!
  • As the embossed portion is shallow and on the top of the bullet, it wont take long before it rubs off.
  • Contains such a small amount of product (1.7g) and therefore expensive price point per gram; £9.4/g compared with £5.5/g (MAC lipstick), £6.2/g (NARS Audacious lipstick).
  • Transfers easily so reapplications would be fairly frequent.

Overall would I repurchase? I'm not so sure. I definitely think this product is overhyped as the product is not quite so revolutionary. For the amount of product you get, this is not good value for money, but it may be okay if you hardly go through a tube of lipstick. I do love the colours I've picked though, especially Spanked, and I'm sure I will be using these often.
