Brandefy Review

Ulta matte lip paint is not a true matte. It maintained a level of creaminess that never quite dried to achieve that true matte finish. The pigment is nowhere near as rich as Tarte’s and it took multiple coats to get the same coverage. Although easy to apply, even with multiple applications, the tester was not happy with the pigmentation. Additionally, Ulta’s shade range is very limited. Tarte is a leader in matte lip paints and did not disappoint in the pigmentation, shade range, ease of application and wear time. Stick with Tarte, ladies.
