Review: Trend It Up Mattifying Lip Finish

Matte lipsticks look gorgeous and are so popular right now. Have you ever found a lip colour you adore but it doesn’t come in a matte finish? Ugh. So annoying! This is where it’s handy to have a mattifying lip finish in your beauty bag and you can wear your favourite shades in two unique ways.

We came across one whilst shopping on our travels in Germany. Buying local makeup brands while traveling is pretty cool and exciting. You can find some real gems that you might not have back in your homeland.

So if you’re visiting Germany, check out DM, a local drugstore which is literally on all the highstreets and town centres. Trend It Up is one of DM’s own branded items so you won’t find it in any other stores.

The product comes in a black tube and is a clear gel which you simply just squeeze out and apply onto your lips. It can transform any cream lipstick into a gorgeous, velvety matte finish. It’s so small and compact that it’s the perfect product for when you’re on the go. You can go into work with your creamy lip finish and if you’re going out straight after just switch your lips to matte in one easy swipe!

We applied Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion which is an intense red with an ultra-smooth finish. It has a melt-away texture with an almost glossy effect and feels quite hydrating on the lips.

After adding a touch of the Trend It Up mattifying lip finish you can see how the Chanel colour turns a beautiful matte. Check out the before and after photos which show you how effective the mattifying lip finish is.

The best thing about this product is the fact that it doesn’t dry your lips out which some matte lipsticks tend to do. It lasts all day long too with only a touch-up needed after food.

It’s safe to say we’re intrigued to try out more Trend It Up products after this successful purchase! Have you tried any of their products before? Let us know what you would recommend.
