Ruby Kisses Matte Lipstick Swatches and Review (Brown Girl Friendly)

So as some of you may have noticed, I love me some beauty supply store makeup. As some of you may have also noticed, I’m quite a fan of the brand Ruby Kisses (*coughs* see here & here). When I started seeing videos popping up about these lipsticks (I’m looking at you ItsMyRayeRaye), I knew I had to get my hands on them. From what I was seeing, these lipsticks seemed extremely smooth, super pigmented, and the range of colours…to die for. Oh yeah, and they’re $2? Pshhh, who’s passing that up.

I was able to get my hands on 8 of the 24 shades. I tried to stick with colours that would be immediately wearable for my skin tone (except for the grey and black ones, but whatever). The packaging on these lipsticks is nice in my opinion, especially for beauty supply store makeup. I don’t turn my nose up at BSS makeup because I know there are some real gems out there, but for those that might have a tendency to do that, or who don’t usually gravitate toward the beauty supply store for their makeup, this packaging might make them consider picking these up. They come in a black plastic bullet, but it’s not cheap or tacky looking/feeling. You are able to see the true colour of the lipsticks through the cover, which is clear plastic. The covers have a band around the bottoms of them that also have the various colours on them, and I think they are pretty true to colour. You get about an inch of product per tube, but I don’t see these finishing extremely fast because they’re so pigmented.

Just from swatching, I can tell that it’s only a matter of time that I get the other 16 shades! It only took one swipe to get good colour payoff, but for picture purposes I did more. For the most part, the application was super smooth, with the only “patchy” shades being “Peach Loo” and “Capri Orange”. I say patchy in quotes because it’s not the same chalky patchiness that you get from the Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipsticks (swatched here), but more of a weird distribution of the colour. The colour payoff isn’t compromised and they still come off extremely smooth and moisturizing. I can’t say anything about the wear time, but I wonder how it will hold up compared to the Wet n Wild matte lipsticks and my NYX Matte Lipsticks.

  3. I remember i wanted a black lippie for my 21st, and instinctively I run to Sephora and them places cuz all I know is that theyre the heavyweights. Well I wasn’t too keen on the time at paying $20 for a sheer black (like why) lipstick from sephora. But honey that matte black ruby kisses! Ughh. I believe they also have a “wet”/shiny version. Never found another good black lipstick that wasn’t liquid.
