Vive Cosmetics Cremosa Matte Lipstick Review


I first heard about Vive Cosmetics via a mutual friend and beauty influencer Maria a.k.a. AgapeLoveGirl. I was curious about the company and was curious to find out more about their mission. 

From their website:

Vive Cosmetics is a beauty brand created for Latinas/xs by Latinas. Vive Cosmetics unites our love for beauty and pride for our heritage and culture all in one place. Vive life to the fullest and be unapologetically yourself- equipped with great lipstick and an unending cultural pride.

As a woman who is a biracial Latina, I felt excited and enamoured by their products. Recently, they came out with their Cremosa Matte Lipstick line. For the purpose of this review, I bought one in shade "Candela."


Shipping was insanely fast! The minute I placed my order, I received a notification within a day's time that it was packaged and shipped. Upon receiving my lipstick, I was greeted with a colourful package. There were gold flakes inside the purple envelope, which I thought was fantastic. The promo cards and sticker was glossy and beautiful. I definitely love the drawing representation of Latinx women in various tones. I'm in love with the sticker that reads Eres Magia (FYI, I placed the sticker above my altar as a good reminder when I do my brujeria). I thought it was really sweet of Vive Cosmetics to include one candy piece! Very tart with a hint of spice. 

The size of the lipstick measures about the same size as the piece of candy that was included in the package. It's a plastic cover, with the logo and brand name embossed over the top cap. The overall lipstick cover has a matte finish. 


Upon opening the cap, there's a faint sweet scent coming from the lipstick. Compared to what's showcased on the website, the color looks more of a muted red / orange. Not too bright but just enough pigment. I did a swatch on my hand to see the texture. Very creamy and love how it complimented against my peach skin. I decided to wear my lipstick for one day running errands. After drinking tea, having a sandwich and consuming some chips, my lipstick stayed intact! Vive Cosmetics wasn't kidding when it says its #BesosProof (except that I'll have to wait for my husband and plant a smooch on his face hehe). 


You can see from the above pictures on how it looks against my lips. I'm really happy to have discovered this wonderful brand. I do see myself buying more lipsticks from Vive Cosmetics in the future.
