Since Rare Beauty launched in 2020, there hasn’t been a collection I absolutely disliked. Of course, there are some products that work better for my skin type and tone. But in general I have faith that they will all be good. And that’s rare. (See what I did there?) But as much as I love the foundation and highlighter, blush and mascara, I loved it Die for a lipstick. And it’s finally here. Selena Gomez just launched her Kind Words Matte Lipstick and matching Kind Words Lip Liner.
According to the brand, Gomez wanted a long-lasting lipstick that’s really comfortable. I would say they nailed that part. The formula is plumping and moisturizing with a soft matte finish. These are Not dry and crusty like some matte lipsticks. Formulations used to have to be this dry to last long. Well, not anymore. Rare Beauty’s formula feels great on the lips and actually lasts. Seriously, I took a nap with the bold shade and it was still fully on when I woke up.
There are 10 shades with free soft matte lip liners.
Gomez has been wearing her new lipsticks and liners for months without our knowledge. You just have to check back on her Instagram and TikTok to see her in action.
I tried each one (see here) with the matching liner and was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the liner applied and how pigmented the lipsticks were in one swipe. Really my only complaint is that there aren’t enough true pinks for my liking. I like lighter colors and these are more muted, with nudes and mauve tones for all skin tones. (The lipstick colors in the above images look lighter to me than in real life.)
Still, I’m glad there are shades that don’t look good on my fair skin. This means they are sure to look amazing on those with oily skin and deeper skin tones. Watch my video, then head over to Sephora to choose your shades. You will not regret it.
