Clio Mad Matte Lip Salmon Rose and Dolce Rose Review and Swatches
Another lip product review, this time from Clio!
Honestly, I don`t think I'll ever get tired in reviewing lip products because if there's one make up item I can never live without, it has to be lipstick. 
Anyway, if you're  a kbeauty enthusiast then I guess it goes without saying that you are already familiar with this brand and you know how good their cosmetics are. Clio is Peripera's sister brand and these two make great lip products, in my opinion. With that being said, do check out my review on Peripera's Airy Ink Velvet HERE.

Bring pure color directly to your lips with fine micro pigments that promote intense, highly chromatic color pay off.
Hydrating on the inside, matte on the surface!

The packaging is very simple almost all black if not for the Mad Matte logo on the cap. When you remove the cap you will see a metallic part which I guess represents the shade of the lipstick?
Each lipstick contains 4.5g of product and will last up to 18 months.

Here's what the lipstick bullet looks like. It's round shaped and wide but I never had a problem when applying it onto my lips though there were times that I do mess up on the edges but that happens almost all the time.
Can you see my cat lying on the ground? He's probably thinks I'm taking a photo of him and not the lipstick. lol

I didn't realize these two were almost of the same color until I opened it. Not sure if it's just my computer setting but in the promotional photo Clio provided, Salmon rose looked more on the light pink side. Didn't expect them to be both orange tinted, Salmon Rose is still my favorite shade between these two nevertheless as it brightens my complexion naturally and it's perfect for daily wear. Dolce Rose can also be worn for everyday look, given that you tone it down because these lipsticks are very pigmented. I feel like this will suit those who are into mature look?

Apologies for the awful lighting in these lip swatches, I took this around 9am and it was cloudy that day.
They weren't lying when they said it has insane color payoff. I was taken a back by how pigmented it was, too pigmented for my liking but it's buildable so I only apply a bit and blend it. The thing is, it emphasizes dry patches and sink into lip lines when applied thinly. Take a look at the first swatch of Salmon Rose above, I had already exfoliated my lips prior to swatching. But I guess that's just how matte lipsticks are, but unlike others this one doesn't feel dry. It's true to its claims, hydrating on the inside and matte on the surface.
 Dry patches weren't too noticeable when layered though, it's so creamy, glides on like a dream and very comfortable on the lips!
Unfortunately, this isn't transfer proof. It won't survive when you eat and touch ups are definitely needed. If you're looking for something with transfer proof formula, you might want to look into the liquid lipstick version of this one. It was also highly raved by Korean bloggers.
If you're following me on Instagram, you might have seen my favorite lip products post? I might have to add this one to that list!
Oh, did I mention that it has a faint chocolate-y scent? Definitely deserves a plus point for that!

That's it for today, a short review of this great matte lipstick. 
I got this from Jolse btw, along with Innisfree My Lip Balm Wanna One Edition. Here is the LINK if you haven't read that one yet.
