New Ulta Matte Lip Cream ~ Review and Swatches

I saw these new lip products in an Ulta email recently so of course I had to try them right away! 
I picked up four new Matte Lip Creams in Vivid, Spirited, Passionate, and Stirring. 
Natural light
L to R ~ Vivid, Spirited, Passionate, and Stirring

Now I must have got ahead of myself with excitement and assumed they were a long lasting matte lip stains similar to the Kat Von, Sephora, Lime Crime, and so on lip stains. What I didn't realize was that this product is named a lip "Cream". 

It's exactly that, a lip cream. It applies smooth and creamy. It has a moussey consistency. It does have a matte finish but doesn't really dry and set. While it looks matte on the lips, it stays feeling creamy throughout wearing it. I'm sure this will appeal to a lot of people who don't like matte lip stains for the drying factor. 

I personally do love this product. It stays feeling smooth and hydrated on the lips. The colors are absolutely beautiful and opaque. I love how hydrating they are on my lips, especially since my lips have been very dry this winter. 

On the down side, they do transfer and fade when eating or drinking. 

They last a good three to four hours, although like I said if you eat something it will fade. 

This product has a slight scent but it's not fruity or vanilla, I can't quite figure it out, but it doesn't have that cheap lipstick smell either so that's a plus.

These are $9 each, but are currently buy two get two FREE at Ulta! 

I'm really enjoying these new Matte Lip Creams from Ulta and definitely recommend checking them out, especially for the price!

These colors are so pigmented! I'm surprised actually! They look higher end. I've been loving ulta lately. I stopped going there for a long time because I was spending too much but since I went back a few weeks ago, I've become addicted lol

@Beautygirl24, Yeah I've never been too impressed with Ulta brand products but these are definitely worth purchasing! I myself was surprised at the quality. I honestly kept my receipt and packaging thinking I was going to have to return them lol! I think I might pick up one or two more shades!
