BottegaVerde is an Italian brand that sells natural products and cosmetics. I was buying some Christmas presents in my local shop and the shopping assistant told me that if I bought one more product, it would get a 40% discount on it. I went through the lipstick rack but I was a bit in a hurry, so I ended up picking a deep red lipstick instead of the pink toned one I wanted. I noticed the mistake when I got back home, so there was nothing I could do. Not that I don't like the lipstick I got in the end, but it's not the one that I intended to buy and I already had a similar one.
Anyway it's a good product so I don't regret buying it.
The BottegaVerde Longlast lipstick comes in a very elegant black tube. The outside of it reminds me of the consistency of the matte lipstick that's inside. The shade of this product is a very deep, sensual red (it's called 'Rosso Velluto', which means 'Red Velvet' for a reason). Applying it is very easy, it glides on smoothly even if it's a matte. I wouldn't wear it for the daytime because it's such a loud colour! I think it'd be perfect for an evening date or something like that, because it draws the attention on your mouth.
It has a long staying power and it contains Argan oil and Hyaluronic oil so it's supposed to protect and keep your lips moisturized. I'm definitely going to try the other lipsticks from the same line. I love the natural effect the matte lipsticks give. Next time I'll pay more attention Ito the shade I pick though!
