L’Oreal Le Matte Matte-r of Fact 404 is a fully matte lip product in a dark red, brownish color. This Le Matte product has great pigmentation, and the color is buildable from a red wine stain to vampy red lips. Unlike some other matte lipsticks I own, Matte-r of Fact applied easily and did not emphasize dryness, although it did feel somewhat dry (I recommend using some chap stick prior to use). The most negative aspect of the Le Matte line is the lasting power - this particular shade lasted only around three hours but it did leave behind a beautiful red stain. The packaging is sleek and easy to carry but the applicator needs to be sharpened or maintained in its shape.
Despite its flaws, L’Oreal Le Matte in Matte-r of Fact is simply a beautiful, rich shade - my fiance immediately noticed when I applied this lipstick (noticed in a good way!). This vampy red is the quintessential “fall color” and should compliment any skin tones with its matte yet smooth formula - this one is a must-buy for me!
