Paese is a brand I don’t know too much about other than the fact that it recently launched in Ireland. I’ve seen a couple of fellow bloggers talking about it recently, and therefore, have been interested to try it out to see what it’s like.
As a result, for today’s challenge choice, I decided to wear this matte liquid lipstick from the brand and put it to the test.
The shade to start with, is a very nude shade, and to be honest, it’s probably a little too pale for me. It almost blanks out the lips completely so really, you’d need to wear a lip liner with it in order to give your lips some definition.
Aside from the color however, I was quite impressed with the formula. It was creamy and quite vinyl like, and felt very smooth on my lips throughout the day. The brush head is small and flexible which makes the product very easy to apply, and the creamy texture makes it easy to blend also.
The pigment is a funny one because it was hard to judge given the extreme paleness of the shade. It’s okay, and the colour pay off is okay too, but I’d like to try it in a darker shade to get a better idea of how good is really is because I don’t think this shade does it justice.
Regards finish, to me, this was more of a liquid cream than a liquid matte. It didn’t really dry in after it was applied in the way you’d expect a liquid matte to dry, but in all honesty, I kind of like the formula as it is so I didn’t mind that too much.
Overall I think this is okay. I don’t love it, but I do think I would like it a lot more in bolder or darker shade as formula itself feels very nice to wear.
