Date Mate is one of three lippie stix in the Hello Kitty collection. It is a vibrant fuchsia with blue undertones. It is hands down, the loudest color I have tried so far. Really has this 80s vibe going. 😁
Date Mate has a matte X finish. So it goes without saying that this is super pigmented. I tried to tone down the color a little by applying as lightly and as little as possible. But...the result was the same. A very bold pink lip. 😁The trouble I have witn matte X lippies is that they tug at my lips on application. It also applies a bit streaky. Because of its high pigmentation, any smudges will result in a disaster. Also, its super matte finish has the tendency to enhance whatever flaws your lips may have so proper lip prep is in order.
Although the formula has its faults, I can't say anything about the longevity of this product. It literally lasted me the entire day, even after lunch or dinner. There is a fine line of wear after meals but re-applying is a piece of cake. It hardly transfers, even if it does it does so minimally.
The color may be a little loud to wear to the office. Unless you want to catch someone's attention, then go ahead. I can see myself wearing this on occasion but all the time. It's one of those colors that you reserve for certain occasions. But if you want to add color and attitude to your look, then this lippie is for you. 😉
