Céleteque has been a household name for years with their skincare lines catering to all skin concerns. My favorite is their Acne Solutions range, which I've been repurchasing since I first tried it way back 2013. (You can backread my review here, and also check out my 2016 anti-acne skincare update!) Céleteque DermoCosmetics was launched just last year, which is the brand's dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic makeup line.

Because the holiday season is fast approaching, Céleteque DermoCosmetics has come up with 3 new matte lipstick shades. (I AM SO EXCITED!) They've put much research into developing these lipsticks to make sure they're flattering and healthy at the same time. Each lipstick is co-created with dermatologists and infused with dermo-grade ingredients to make it safe and gentle even for the most sensitive lips.
It comes in a metallic silver and purple box that's difficult to photograph. Haha :P
Céleteque DermoCosmetics Matte Lipstick 2.4g (P595)
Céleteque Matte Lipsticks give your lips the alluring touch of a long-wearing formula that lends lips a vivid matte color finish. It glides on easily and leaves the lips with no waxy feel. Céleteque’s lippies have Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) that moisturizes lips, Bisabolol that reduces flaking and restores suppleness, as well as Candelilla Wax that nourishes lip skin.
The boxes come with a sticker seal on one end, and a shade sticker on the other.
These lipsticks come in a chubby crayon form, and I find the minimalist packaging design too simple for my liking. Also for its price, it could look a bit fancier. However, I like the placement of the shade sticker, because I used to store all my lip crayons downwards so I could find the shade easily... until one of them (from another brand) melted and the entire bullet of lippie dropped to the cap. Huhu. I immediately checked everything and stored them upright. So I really like how easily I can spot the shade I want, and also the entire packaging is white so it stands out in my makeup stash.
Now on to the exciting part: Swatching! :D I also love the shade selection, as I'm not fond of pinks. When I did these lip swatches, my lips were dry to begin with. These lipsticks didn't glide as silkily, but I appreciate that since it's bound to be long-wearing that way. (Lipsticks that glide on like butter tend to slide off easily, based on my experience.) They didn't aggravate my already dry lips, but instead, my lips felt better having them on. On good/normal lip days (where my lips aren't dry), the lines aren't as visible, and the lipstick looks smoother.
Nude is a brown-tone neutral that can match any skin tone. I bet this one will be the most popular one, since nude/brown lipsticks are trending! One me, this one looks peachy nude and it looks very youthful. My younger sister was already calling dibs on this one the moment it arrived our doorstep, and it has mysteriously made its way to her kikay kit. She even proudly proclaimed that all her makeup are from me. Ano ba! Haha :D
Ruby is a statement-making party-ready crimson. It's a beautiful bright red shade that I would pair with nude eyeshadow and black winged liner. Because almost everyday is my lazy day when it comes to makeup, I only need powder and THIS lipstick, and I'm ready to go! It's actually my favorite among the new shades, and it's the most flattering one for my pale skin. (It's Snow White's lip color!)
Wine is a deep mauve that gives the wearer a grounded, regal look. This one's a cousin of Ruby; it looks red but with more blue in it. I wish it came in a deeper, darker purple hue though. (Mas sosyal!)
All three shades are very matte, even from the first swipe. They live up to the long-wearing claim. They stay put and don't transfer to my teeth. Also, they don't even come off when I snack or drink! (However, like any long-wearing lipstick, you will need to retouch once you have a heavy/oily meal.) These lipsticks also have no scent and feel very lightweight, so you'll forget you even have them on. Céleteque Matte Lipsticks are your perfect kit companions for your upcoming holiday events, and I look forward to discovering more from their makeup line. (We're off to a good start!) :)
Céleteque Matte Lipsticks are exclusively available in Watsons for only P595.
