What it is: A curated collection of lipsticks and matching lip liners from the Selena Gomez-backed brand Rare Beauty.
The Kind Words Matte Lipstick and Lip Liners are available in “10 made-to-match shades” ranging from neutral beige to deep chocolate brown. The creamy lipstick formulas and waterproof lip liners are designed to feel lightweight on lips yet provide long-wear lip colour that lasts.
“This is everything I’ve ever wanted in a lip liner. Super smooth and doesn’t tug on your lips, and made to last all day without feeling sticky,” Gomez said in a news release. “I wanted to create a classic lipstick that’s truly comfortable. Every shade is easy and wearable, and just perfect for everyday.”
The formulas are billed as being vegan and cruelty free, suitable for sensitive skin, and free of paraben.
What we say: Our tester found these lip products applied smoothly, providing a bold colour payoff.
Using the liner to outline and define lips, she followed with the ultra-matte lipstick. True to the product claims, the formulas are a perfect match, providing seamless coverage that doesn’t budge.
While she did find the lipstick formula felt a tad dry on lips, the overall performance and colour selection — soft pinks, nudes and wearable neutrals, yes please! — made these lip liners and matching lipsticks a hit.
Where to get it: Sephora, Rarebeauty.com
