Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a very nice holiday, and to those who celebrated Christmas yesterday, a very Merry Christmas! Now that it’s boxing day, one of the most anticipated products of the last month is finally releasing!
Whether a whole collection has been launched, or just a new product, I’m going to evaluate whether each product is either a Wow! buy or a Waste? of money, in terms of the price and the amount of product you get.
This is the Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick, which launches today, December 26, 2017.
If you read my Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collection Edition of Wow! or Waste? You will know that some of the products were definitely a Wow!, while others were a total Waste? So, when I saw that a new lipstick was joining the Fenty Beauty line, I was instantly intrigued as to whether I should get it or not, based on the value.
Who wants to shell out a bunch of money and get barely any product? Is it worth paying extra for the brand name? Especially Rhianna’s?
These are all questions I ask myself. And up until now, it has been hard to predict with her products, since it has really gone back and forth between Wow! and Waste?
So, if you want to know whether these new lipsticks are worth the money, in terms of value, then please keep reading!

Price and Quantity
This lipstick is priced at $23 CAD ($18 USD) and has 0.06 oz. Anyone have a sneaking suspicion as to whether this product will be a Wow! or Waste??? The Fenty Beauty Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick had only 0.045 oz of product, so we are a bit better than that, but not by much…

Wow! or Waste? Unfortunately, this product is a total Waste? I know so many people have been excited about these lipsticks, but the truth is, they are just not worth it, compared to the value of other lipsticks available. So far Fenty has offered really reasonable prices. However, the amount of product is just not there, and maybe they think we won’t notice, but we should. When they are giving us about half the amount of product that is the norm, that’s really not so great.
Yes, most people do not go through whole lipsticks. But with these, you may actually run the risk of going through one in no time at all. You will have to decide whether the hype of this product and the brand name are enough to make you bite the bullet and purchase.
A lot of the items we use in beauty are just for fun and are not necessary. So if you want to go ahead and splurge on this item, go for it. Treat yourself. We all do it. But for those of you who on principle refuse to pay more for less, be smart about this new release. There’s so much makeup out there, theres no reason that you absolutely NEED to get this.
Also, Fenty has some other items that are actually of really great value! Check out my other Fenty Posts to learn more:
Well that’s all for today’s Wow! or Waste? Were you thinking about purchasing any of these lipsticks? Will you go through with it now that you know its value?
Please comment down below. I am genuinely curious to know.
