Matte lipstick or matte lip color lover!! That's what I am. The moment you unscrew the lid first thing you will notice is warm delicious vanilla scent along with having soft, air-whipped, buttery smooth texture.
''San Paulo'' is a gorgeous Plumy-Pink which leans towards more of a pink side than plum. Having very warm plumy warm undertone it is very much wearable color on a daily basis. It's such a warm shade of pink for me that instantly brightens up my face without screaming out so loud and doesn't look garish or neon-y on my NC-35 skin tone. In my opinion fair to medium skin complexion can nail it easily.
Single swipe gives insanely pigmented color and opaque coverage and settles into matte finish. Despite the fact that, these are are matte lip cream but to my surprise they are non-drying and the matte finish is so polished and healthy looking but if you are who is having dry/flaky lips then applying a thin film of lip balm underneath prior application is must. As the formula is so light and air-whipped I hardly detect that I'm wearing anything on my lips. If applied lightly and carefully it looks like more of a lip stain that feels so natural.
Although formula is non-drying and long lasting but I don't like the fact that they look great for initial 2-3 hours and after that starts accentuating fine lines and highlight dryness awfully by giving them dry cracked appearance. Also I've noticed it doesn't fade evenly so I keep it in my makeup bag for the constant touch ups.
