Even though I tend to wear nude lipsticks everyday, I really can’t resist a gorgeous red lipstick so the shades in the new B Matte Red Lipstick range are doing all kinds of wonderful things to me. I don’t know if I’m shying away from luxury lipsticks today as I was finally brave enough to look at my bank balance after going rampant in the January Sales but the fact that these creamy, red lipsticks only cost £7.99 and are available from my local Superdrug makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

The lipsticks in the B. Matte Red Lipstick range have all been formulated to have a soft and creamy texture that glides onto the lips easily with a lightweight feel. At the moment, the B Matte Red Lipsticks come in 4 shades of red:-

  • Alexa
  • Dita
  • Suki
  • Isabella

and all have slightly different blue, pink and orange undertones to them.


To be completely honest with you, I don’t think these lipsticks are very matte as they are quite creamy on the lips and I don’t feel like they are trying to absorb every bit of moisture from my lips – I’m being a tad bit dramatic, but it’s still true – but I understand why B. are marketing these lipsticks as a matte as you don’t get a sheen on the lips.

At only £7.99 I think the B Matte Red Lipsticks are great for their price point, so if you happen to be mooching around in your local Superdrug while waiting for your train home or browsing the Superdrug website, make sure you pop these in your basket (trust me you won’t regret it)
