Hi guys! This will be a flash review & swatch. Meaning I won’t be telling you a lengthy sob-story or explanation before going straight to the review. HAHAHAHAH our lippie feature for the day is EB Advance’s Matte-Matic Lipstick in Neutral Mocha (Price: 180php)
REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCH
The packaging is a twist-up crayon pencil. Similar to Kris Aquino’s Matte-Matic lipstick line. Actually this might be just the same, just ~without~ the branding of the queen of all media.
Texture is in between a creamy and matte formula. Not as drying as the latter but swipes comfortably on my lips. It leaves a soft finish on my lips.

Swipe it on and you don’t even need to use a mirror.
Overall, I’m loving this lipstick line so much. Actually the entire EB brand. Did you know this is a “discreet alta brand”. Quick kwento lang before I leave you guys.

The alta titas are secretly sharing their makeup stash and among the mix of high-end brands like Armani and Tom Ford is a few of their EB favorites (specifically their EB Powder Foundation and some lipsticks).
So there you have it folks! EB Advance has done it yet again being the pioneer yet withstanding the test of time with the quality of cosmetics
