Today's post is about a very pigmented, long-lasting, yet affordable lipstick, the Astra Lip Stylo 8h lipstick! I discovered them early summer and I've been loving them since then!
Astra is an Italian brand with affordable and good quality make up products. When I swatched these lipsticks I knew they'd come home with me! As you can see below, the pigmentation and colour payoff is just amazing. They have a matte finish which also means that they are long-lasting and they do not dry out my lips. And they cost about 4€ which is perfect.
No.06 (Amour) is a vivid red, a dupe for MAC All Fired Up. The colour is exactly the same, the only thing that changes is the formula which for MAC is super dry and matte. If you have problems with MAC retro matte lipsticks try this one and you will thank me.
No.08 (Daisy) is a very "everyday" pink, more of a rose pink I'd say. Very wearable, I love it.
No.09 (Doll) is a mauv-y pink, I really enjoy this kind of shades because they are far from fuchsia but they are still girly and wearable.
No.10 (Nude Rose) is as Kylie Jenner as I can go. It's a brownish nude which doesn't make me look dead but it isn't too brown to scream 1995. Super wearable.
As you can tell I love all 4 colours, I'm so glad I found them! Here you can see the whole range, I really hope they'll add a couple darker colours!
Have you tried any Astra products?
Any recommendations on what to try next?
