I’m wearing the shade “Pink Paradise” in the collage above.
Pros: it had me at hello! The color is super cute and it’s highly pigmented! Also goes great with my skine tone. Would suggest this to any women of color. Matte formulas usually last longer than glossy formulas due to the fact that they’re drier. But this new lippie stayed completely creamy. I only used one coat to apply and that one coat was enough! I even ate with it on all day and only had to reapply once.
Cons: it stained my lips a bit once I took it off.
Rate: on a scale from 1 (worst. lipstick. ever.) to 10 (thebomb.com). I’d say an easy 9/10!
I’ve gotten the chance to speak to and collaborate with the CEO of this brand! She says, “N.O.R.E By Norrell is a cosmetic brand that I founded in September this year! I have launched a line of Matte Liquid Lipsticks and my goal is to expand into a full line of cosmetics. N.O.R.E represents diversity and beauty; I make products to fit all skin tones! I want to inspire women of all ages to follow their dreams and goals and to say that it is possible! I started with $500.00 and a dream. I want women to feel not like they need my products but to feel confident wearing them. N.O.R.E is ALL ABOUT BEAUTY!”
