I've always been a little wary of matte lip products because they can be drying, which is bad news for extra-dry lips like mine. Happily, I was surprised to find that the Féline Lip Lacquer was very comfortable to wear and not heavy-feeling even on dry, sensitive lips like mine. I also loved that despite the lipgloss-like packaging, it isn't sticky like a gloss at all. I tested this during the summer and was so pleased to be able to wear this driving with the windows down and not end up with a mouth full of hair!

Overall, Lise Watier hit it out of the park with the Féline Lip Lacquer in Rouge. The highly-pigmented, deep, neutral red is such a stunner and would suit a wide range of skin tones. I think there is a slight trade-off between comfort and longevity here--usually the super long-wearing, never-budge lip products are more drying. Rouge lasts fairly well but will transfer readily when eating or drinking. Personally, I'm happy with it because it's made me a believer that mattes can play well together with very chronically-dry lips. If you are looking for a fall-perfect lip colour, this is definitely one to check out.
