This is one of those totally unexpected beauty finds that blew my mind! I found this BROADWAY Matte Lip Lacquer at my local Dollar General store one day when I had ran in to grab some cleaning products. Dollar General is not normally somewhere that I would shop for makeup at, but when I saw these matte lip lacquers on an end cap they totally caught my eye so I had to stop and have a look. You know I love my nudes and baby Pinks, so this one just had to come home with me. These retail for $3 which I think is a really good price point for a drugstore lip product. But with that being said, I didn't really have any expectations for this since it was so inexpensive.
There are only a few shades available in this line and this Pink shade is honestly the only one I would wear personally. But there are a couple of other shades available including a Hot Pink, a dark Wine/Berry shade and a Navy Blue one as well. I searched and searched all over the internet trying to find out more about this range and came up with nothing. So I don't know if this line was a limited edition or what the deal is. But I do know that others have found these and liked them as well because there are a few beauty reviews on them and I just watched a Youtube video that a friend of mine did and she had this Pink matte lip lacquer in her favorites video last month. I also went back to my Dollar General store to see if they still had these and they do. Now whether or not you will be able to find them, who knows? But if you see them, I suggest at least grabbing one to try for yourself. For these to be a matte formula, the creamy consistency of them is unreal. You know how when you apply a matte liquid lip and the minute they dry your lips instantly feel almost like if you smile they are going to crack? Well you won't have to worry about that with these. These will dry matte but stay nice and creamy. You can even still rub your lips together like you would do with a lip balm and it doesn't budge and still looks nice and matte. It's actually kind of crazy how good these are, especially for the price.
The shade I chose is a nice, baby pink nude and it looks lovely with my hair and skin tone. I didn't see a name on the packaging anywhere so I can't even tell you what the name of it is. But I love it so much that I am hoping to grab a couple more before they quit carrying them. I looked online to see if the brand BROADWAY Colors has a website to purchase from as well but they don't. And I think I have only seen this brand at DG and Dollar Tree before. Have any of you ever seen this brand before and if so, where have you seen it available at? Now that I have tried this and love it, I WANT MORE!
These are the other shades available in the line
I think the dark berry shade would be gorgeous for Fall (I just can't pull off dark shades like that or I would have totally grabbed that one as well.) But I might try the Hot Pink if they have that one when I go back. I just can't get over how amazing this feels on my lips. It dries so nice and wears almost just like a lip balm! Sorry this post is so short, but I wasn't really planning on doing a review on this at all. But when something really works and surpasses your expectations, you just want to tell people about it, ya know?
Have any of you guys tried one of these?
