The Decorté The Rouge Matte Lipsticks come in five different shades and I have swatches of three of them for you today. The texture is unlike most matte lipsticks – it’s actually creamy, not only when applied but for hours and hours, with great slip even though the appearance is matte. It leaves lips feeling wonderfully moist and hydrated which is always my beef with matte lippies. I can’t stand dry lips so I always end up throwing on some gloss. With The Rouge Matte Lipsticks I can wear them all day long and keep the cool matte look going strong.

The three shades I have are:

RD456, a medium pinkish red

Decorté The Rouge Matte Lipstick RD457

RD457, a deep brownish red

The pigmentation is incredible. This stuff just doesn’t wear off! Even after applying when I blot it hardly comes off on the tissue. It takes some pretty greasy food to make a dent and generate cause for reapplication. With the lovely mouth feel of the lipstick I just can’t believe the staying power. I’m telling you, these lipsticks are like miracles in a tube.
