Everyone has been so obsessed with matte lip creams lately, myself included. There is just something so lovely and classy about a beautiful matte color. Pretty much every makeup brand is noticing this fascination and started coming out with their own matte lip creams. So far my favorite is the NYX matte lip creams, but I still do love venturing out and trying out other brands. I recently tried Wet 'N Wild's Velvet Matte Lip Color in Fashion Darling and Pinky Candy. They look very promising and I couldn't wait to see if I found a new matte lip product to obsess over.
Fashion Playground is a pinky/red.
Pink Candy is a very light pink
Pink Candy is the one I was most excited for when I saw it in the store. I couldn't wait to get home to try it out. The color of the lip cream looks so pretty, but unfortunately doesn't transfer that same color to your lips. It was extremely light and I really had to work to get any color at all to show on my lips. Both Fashion Playground and Pink Candy dried a little patchy on my lips.

I would describe these as more of a balm since they aren't very pigmented. If you are looking for something that will give you subtle color then these are definitely for you. But if you are someone like me that really likes a very pigmented, beautiful matte lipstick then I would pass on these. Sadly, these did not live up to the expectations I had for them.
