Anastasia Beverly Hills “Carina” is a part of a newly released liquid lipstick collection. I personally, own three of those lipsticks and Carina is one of my favorites. Carina is a bight hot pink that definitely has some cool, blue undertones.
This lipstick is the most matte of all the matte lipsticks that I have tried in my life. The liquid formula gives a mega full coverage and dries within seconds. As I already said it dries completely matte and feels absolutely weightless. I love to use this lipstick when I go out, because it stays on all night(about 5-6 hours) and does not move even if you eat or drink. I also did not notice any transfer at all!
This lipstick is slightly drying, which is not surprising given its longevity and matte finish. One disadvantage to this lipstick is the smell. It smells kind of like paint. This scent however is pretty subtle and it does not smell like anything when it dries.
Overall, I love this product. If you are on the hunt for a super pigmented, super matte lipstick that lasts all day, this one might be just what you are looking for.
