Miners 'the Matte Factor Lip Paint' in Peach

Hi everybody,

Today I have a quick little review on a product I picked up quite recently by Miners, the Matte Factor Lip Paint. I saw this on their website and it looked quite like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and I said I'd pick this up and try it out. I know Miners is freely available in UK but is a bit harder to find here, I was surprised when I found a whole display in a pharmacy in my home town! There were 6 shades available from baby pinks to reds, but I picked up the colour 'Peach' and it cost €5.32.

The packaging is sleek and simple and the colour of the tube is the same as the product inside. As you can see, the colour isn't exactly peachy, it's darker than peach and veering towards pink coral side. You get 5ml of product which is decent and it has a doe-foot applicator which I always favour.

Swatched in natural daylight- as you can see, it's more pink than peach.

If I was buying this online and I picked it because it's called 'Peach' expecting a peachy colour, I think I would probably feel a bit hard done by, but because I bought this after swatching it on my hand and liking it, that's not the case with me.

It's staying power is quite good- I wore it on a shopping day trip at the weekend and it lasted five hours easily, and it kind of fades gradually and leaves a peachy tint. It reminds me alot of the E.L.F. Studio Lip Stains, it kind of smells and applies easily too. It doesn't gather in the cracks of your lips or bleed, in my experience it has stay put. It drys completely matte but you can top it with gloss if you wish- I happen to like the matte effect. It is a little drying on the lips to be honest when you take it off, but nothing that a coat of Vaseline can't fix.

Overall, I like this product and would recommend it. I'm more of a lipstick than a lip gloss person and I think this strikes enough balance between the two. It's a little drying but my lips get dry very easily anyway and I am always using Carmex or Vaseline. The biggest brownie point I have with this is that it fades gradually and evenly, leaving a nice peachy tint. I don't think I'll pick up any of the other colours because they didn't really appeal to me but I'm definitely going to get some use out of this over the summer.

Thanks for reading
