Welcome to Unfiltered, where we give our honest, no-B.S. reviews of the most buzzed-about beauty products, brands, and services on the market right now.
"Thanks, it's Zara" is the fashion world's polite way of taking a compliment. And this month, that sentiment will extend to a lot more than $100 winter coats and stylish boots. The retailer just announced a line of makeup products — including 12 on-trend matte lipsticks and liners with serious fashion street cred.
If the mix of rich reds, deep berries, and creamy nudes wasn't cool enough, the velvety-matte formula comes wrapped in Instagram-ready tubes that were inspired by 35mm film. Of course, like any Zara release, they're also affordable – ranging from $10 up to $26 for a set. Before we got too excited, we asked eight R29 staffers to swipe on almost all of Zara's Ultimatte lipsticks and give their honest opinions. Read their thoughts, ahead.
