I had been looking for a matte lipstick for quite a while, as I quite like the look of them, and had finally convinced myself to get the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm. Unfortunately, all of the balms had been tampered with. Buying a lip product that someone had already touched was out of the question. When I continued to browse, I came across the Personnelle display, which had rows of perfectly sealed matte lipsticks in an array of colours. Their new collection of matte lipsticks is called Rouge Distinction.

Personnelle Rouge Distinction in Prestige
Personnelle is a brand that I have known about since I was a little kid, but I had never once tried any of their cosmetics before. This is the brand of Jean-Coutu, a pharmacy chain in Canada. Their prices are pretty similar to any other drugstore brand.
I always struggle with finding a good lip colour for me. Often certain shades just look completely odd with my skin tone. I haven't yet been able to pin point what the problem is. This time around, I decided to go for a wine coloured red. Specifically, the colour I chose is called Prestige.
Like most matte lipsticks, this one is quite drying for the lips. However, I don't find it unbearable. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who has chapped lips though, because I can imagine the mess it would make. It's not very long wearing, and easily wipes off. I guess this could be a pro or a con, depending on what you look for in a lipstick. For me, colour pay off is the most important thing, so having to re-apply this one a few times a day doesn't bother me.
