Makeup by Mario Sierra & Sam Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches



Sierra

Makeup by Mario Sierra Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warmer, more orange undertones and a soft matte finish. The texture was firmer in the tube, almost stiff to work with, so I had to use a firmer hand to drag it across my lips, which did not make it the most comfortable formula to apply. It felt more silicone-like where the product pilled a little as I worked with it, and this was further seen as it settled into my lip lines and clung to texture imperfections. It had semi-opaque color coverage that wore decently for two hours on me and felt non-drying.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.14 oz. – $171.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a “comfortable matte” finish that offers “full-coverage” that is “non-drying” and has “smoothing gels and texturizing powder” that delivers a “smooth matte, soft-focus appearance.” It’s a silicone-heavy formula that’s thin, very lightweight, and has a “soft matte” finish that is mostly matte but not quite as flat initially as a true matte lipstick would be.

I find this type of formula to be a more common release from a multitude of brands, and they don’t often have a lot of differentiation. It has been my experience, unfortunately, with most of these formulas that they tend to emphasize lip texture and imperfections–particularly catching around flakes, even minor dryness–and separate into lip lines as they wear down. The lighter shades tend to be the worst-applying and worst-performing, while more mid-tone and deeper shades can apply more smoothly and be more flattering on.

I noticed that the red and berry hues in the range seemed to be stiffer in the tube than most of the other shades in the line-up, and this resulted in the base of the lipstick breaking off from the twist-up mechanism (the following shades broke: Alicia, Kiana, Kristen, Amanda).

The pigmentation varied from more semi-opaque to opaque coverage with lighter shades having sheerer coverage relative to deeper shades. The initial consistency was firmer in the tube, though not to the point of tugging painfully, but I found that this tends to deliver less pigmentation and does tend to be a better application when I build up with shorter, overlapping strokes overall.

The formula was non-drying and very lightweight, so it felt like I had nothing on, but they only wore between two and five hours with a few shades exceeding that range (like a red).

Sam

Makeup by Mario Sam Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, pinkish-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation that adhered fairly evenly across my lips, but there was slight product that pulled into my deeper lip lines, which worsened after the three hours the shade lasted for.

The texture was slightly denser in the tube with barely any slip, so it didn’t glide as readily across my lips (on the upside, the product didn’t slide around while worn either). It felt very lightweight and flexible enough that it wasn’t uncomfortable or drying to wear.
