This shade, simply called 103 is a medium pink with a slight peachy/dusty pull. It is supposed to have a totally matte formula but there is a bit of creaminess before it dries down. Retails for $4.99 at Ulta, Target, and drugstores and is housed in a pretty red bullet with Kate’s iconic signature. 4 hours of good wear, no flaking, and feels feather light on the lips. However, there is a very strong, lingering floral mixed with candy smell that is really off-putting.
This lipstick is for any fans of Rimmel, Kate Moss, and matte lipsticks, pretty much in that order. If you are looking for a way to ease into matte’s, this is a nice baby step because it is so comfortable and user friendly. Not very dramatic, and very smelly…so be warned!
This would have been my new Holy Grail matte lipstick if it weren’t for the smell. I am so disappointed. I urge you to check them out for yourself! They really are worth it besides the scent.
