So we might have just found our new favourite lipstick shade.
This is Korean brand 3CE’s Matte Lipstick in #609 Jammer, a burgundy-tinged red in a matte finish.
In the tube, it looks like any other cool-toned deep red; but once it went on for the first time, we instantly fell in love. See for yourself how it looks on 3CE model ambassador Park Sora:
This lipstick claims to have a “Primer Matte Texture”, which allows the lipstick to better adhere to the lips. We can attest that this one doesn’t bleed like dark lipsticks tend to do; also, although it’s truly matte, the colour goes on smoothly. We tried applying it in the centre of the lips and then smacking our lips together to spread out the colour, and it did so quite easily – so yes, you can do those Korean ombre lips with this.
It’s a shade that won’t overpower even very fair skin tones, and will flatter darker skin tones too. Basically, the colour is truly lovely:
