This matte lipstick from the Glitter & Ice Collection is kind of good. It’s not as moisturizing as I’d like but its pretty close to the perfect matte red lipstick. I have worn this a few times and I put on some Mac Prep & Prime balm first before applying it. That really helps. This is a much less expensive alternative to Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet La Fascinante #38 that I reviewed recently. Check out that review here.
Besides the moisture difference the Chanel lipstick is a little shinier on my lips. It’s also not as deep red as the Such Flare! Lipstick.

If you’re in the market for a good red this holiday season you can’t go wrong with either of these matte lipsticks.
