Pure Matt Lipsticks by Color Studio Professional - Review & Lip Swatches
Color Studio Professional has always done an amazing job with their lipsticks so I got really excited when I got to try their Pure Matt lipsticks, again. I have reviewed them years ago but let's see if my views are the same or changed.

About the product: (packaging/weight)
CSP sent me Pure Matt Lipsticks in their gift box which they also send in their subscription service (this is something totally new for me but such a great idea if you are really into lipsticks and want to save up to 50% on CSP lipsticks).

Pure Matt Lipstick comes in 45 beautiful shades.

SWATCHES:
These swatches were taken in studio lighting over prepped lips without using any primer underneath or a lip liner. All the shades were swatched directly with the tubes but a lip brush was used for darker shades to create a neat outline.

Scent:
All of the lipsticks have a mild vanilla scent.

Texture/Application:
Pure Matt Lipsticks have a creamy texture for sure but at the same time, the application is not really smooth. I get that matte lipstick can sometimes be a little draggy for the lips and my lips are pretty dry but I had these thoughts, five years ago when I tried these lipsticks for the first time.

Five years later, they apply in the same way and now I know better, that my lips are not at fault. I prep my lips before lipsticks application and Pure Matt Lipstick still dragged my lips.

The application can get really smooth if I apply a lip balm underneath but that kills the purpose of using a matte lipstick.

Pigmentation:
All the lipsticks I got are super pigmented and you can see that from swatches. 😍

Finish:
These Pure Matt Lipsticks have a semi-matte finish. I know the name says Pure Matt but I couldn't find them matte, and you can see the finish in photos too. Studio lights do add a little sheen on the lips but they are still not matte.

These lipsticks are drying for my lips but not all the shades and if you look at the swatches closely, you can see that Up To Date Russet look dry on my lips. Please keep in mind that I do not fix any problems (in photoshop) that I face during swatches but I always make sure that my lips are prepped before I take swatches.

Longevity:
If left untouched, these last on me for a couple of hours. I do not judge lipsticks when I eat oily foods because oily removes pretty much any lipstick.

Removal:
Pretty much any makeup remover or makeup wipe works for removing the lipsticks.

Staining:
I love when even the darkest shades in a lipstick range don't stain my lips or the skin. I am a messy person when I take my lipstick off so you can imagine the stain around my lips. These lipsticks gave me no such issue at all.

Price Point:
pkr 995 / £12.00 for Pure Matt Lipstick could be a great deal if the lipstick is true matte.

Final Thoughts:
It breaks my heart when a product from my beloved brand does not work for me but I review products for my readers to help them make better decisions when investing money in makeup/skincare. I truly love Color Studio Pro but even though all the shades I tried for Pure Matt are gorgeous and the packaging is stunning, I could not like the formula. It would have been quite okay if the main claims were not about the pure-matte effect but unfortunately it was. I hope CSP comes up with a true matte lipstick because matte lipsticks are getting more and more popular by the day or even better, a liquid matte lipstick <3

Overall, if you are looking for a matte lipstick, Pure Matt Lipsticks might not work for you but if you are okay with a semi-matte finish, this collection has a huge shade range and is in a decent price range as well. I will highly highly recommended CSP's Velvet Lipsticks as well. I fall in love with them, every time I wear them. Do read my review and see the lip swatches here for Velvet Lipsticks. Coor Studio Pro did an amazing job with that collection.
