NABLA The Matte Lip Collection Review

NABLA The Matte Lip Collection Review

NABLA has recently launched The Matte Lip Collection, consisting of sixteen new Cult Matte Lipstick shades in three different, innovative textures, each having their own style of matte finishes. For today, I’m going to review and show you swatches of the entire NABLA The Matte Lip Collection.

The NABLA The Matte Lip Collection includes six Bounce Matte (left), four Super Matte (middle) and six Soft Touch (right) Lipstick shades. The outside of the different textures look exactly the same, each having a metallic, rosegold tube with feather details. The lipstick tube feels sturdy and of high quality. The texture isn’t described on the lipstick tube but you can see the difference looking at the bullets, which you can see in the pictures above.

 

 

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick

NABLA The Matte Lip Collection Review

The new NABLA Bounce Matte Lipsticks (€13,90 Euro/3.5 gr) is a new formula, described as super pigmented, long-lasting. The blend of different waxes give a smooth and easy application, having a plastic-matte finish to make the lips look smooth and flawless for hours. The formula is completely Vegan.

 

Here are swatches of the six NABLA Bounce Matte Lipsticks. These lipstick definitely glide easily onto the skin with one swipe and full opacity. I would personally describe the finish as Satin Matte, because they have a very soft sheen while still being matte. Each lipstick has a subtle Vanilla scent and are completely Vegan.

Since each shade basically perform the same, I will only give a description of the shade in each section and my thoughts about the formula in the summary below.

 

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Lust

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Lust – Deep Neutral Nude.

 

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Foxy Lady

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Foxy Lady – Berry Violet.

 

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Fool Me

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Fool Me – Tangerine Red.

 

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Indie Lips

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Nolita

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Nolita – Hot Terracotta.

 

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Criminal Babe

NABLA Bounce Matte Lipstick in Criminal Babe – Sultry Dark Plum.

 

The NABLA Bounce Matte Lipsticks were easy to apply evenly and opaque with a thin layer, feel comfortable at first but do feel a bit drying over time. Only the shade Criminal Babe applied slightly patchy. What I notice mostly is that my lips unfortunately, look very wrinkly up-close but it isn’t as noticeable from a normal distance. My favorite shades are Foxy Lady and Nolita.

I thought Indie Lips would be an immediate favorite however, this shade STAINS like nothing else. I had this lipstick on for ten minutes and I had to walk with bright pink lips for over a day. Yes, the shade is a brownish mauve but stains bright pink. I really hate strong staining products so I would suggest to avoid this shade like the plague if you are the same.

 

 

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick

NABLA The Matte Lip Collection Review

The NABLA Super Matte Lipsticks (€13,90 Euro/3.5 gr) is an existing formula, described as incredibly long-lasting and richly pigmented with a Velvet Matte finish. The formula is supposed to adhere strongly on the lips which perfects over time, which is enhanced due to the addition of a film-forming polymer.

 

Here are swatches of the four new NABLA Super Matte Lipsticks. These lipstick are very rough to apply. You can already see from the swatches that the lipsticks pull on my skin heavily. They are however, very pigmented and have a one-swipe full opacity formula. I agree that these lipstick have a Velvet Matte finish. Each lipstick has a subtle Vanilla scent and are completely Vegan.

Since each shade basically perform the same, I will only give a description of the shade in each section and my thoughts about the formula in the summary below.

 

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Lover’s Sleep

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Lover’s Sleep – Rosy Nude with Peach undertone.

 

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Secret Season

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Secret Season – Muted Toasted Peach.

 

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Platonic Love

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Platonic Love – Rich cool-toned Brick Red.

 

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Judge Me

NABLA Super Matte Lipstick in Judge Me – Bold Chocolate Burgundy.

 

The NABLA Bounce Matte Lipsticks apply evenly and are very thick and creamy, which I don’t find very comfortable because I can feel the lipstick on my lips constantly. However, because it’s so creamy, it doesn’t feel drying. I also don’t like that the lipstick’s formula is quite hard, pulling my lips when I’m applying the lipstick. What I do like about this formula is the finish. Even though it has a matte finish, my lips look beautifully plump and healthy. My favorite shade is Secret Season.

 

 

NABLA Soft Touch Lipsticks

NABLA The Matte Lip Collection Review

The NABLA Soft Touch Lipsticks (€13,90 Euro/4 gr) have a new formula, described as a new lightweight matte lipstick with a Soft Focus finish and a buildable coverage, giving the lips a smooth and plump effect. The formula consists of light-weight oils and micronized powders, which help giving a blurred effect.

 

Here are swatches of the six NABLA Soft Touch Lipsticks. These lipstick glide easily onto the skin and are as described, buildable so not fully opaque. They definitely have a soft, powdery matte finish. Each lipstick has a Vanilla scent and have a Vegetarian formula, because one of the ingredients may contain traces of Beeswax.

Since each shade basically perform the same, I will only give a description of the shade in each section and my thoughts about the formula in the summary below.

 

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Party in Paris

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Party in Paris – Muted Raspberry.

 

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Allusive

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Allusive – Medium Rosy-Red Nude.

 

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Backbeat

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Backbeat – Cool-toned Light Nude.

 

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Masterpiece

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Masterpiece – Vivid Blue-based Red.

 

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Chloe

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Chloe – Light Beige Nude with a hint of Pink.

 

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Time Flies

NABLA Soft Touch Lipstick in Time Flies – Mauve-Hazelnut Nude.

 

The NABLA Soft Touch Lipsticks apply evenly but even though these can be build up, I can’t make these to become completely opaque. This applies in a thin layer, which is slippery, very comfortable and feels lightweight. I also think that m lips look beautifully soft and blurred Because there’s powder in the formula, it can cling slightly on dry spots and can break down and build up in the inner rim of your lips. I don’t find it very noticeable though. My favorite shades are Allusive and Time Flies.

 

 

I think the NABLA The Matte Lip Collection has a beautiful selection of matte lipsticks, each formula having their own pro’s and con’s. I think it really depends on your own preference what your favorite formula would be. My personal favorite formula is the Soft Touch Lipsticks, because I love the finish and feel comfortable. All lipsticks are of course matte so stay on nicely without feathering and long-lasting. They’re also easy to re-apply without looking patchy. I would suggest absolutely suggest to check out the products of the collection if you’re a fan of matte lipsticks.
