Beauty Hacks? Testing: Mattifying Lipstick with Blush

Hey everyone!

Today I'm testing out the claim that you can use blush to mattify lipstick.

Basically, it's as simple as putting on your favourite lipstick, then using blush over the top.  The same kind of idea as using a translucent powder.

Tip: Try to keep the lipstick and blush in the same colour category (I feel like this shouldn't even need to be said but...) I used the Rimmel by Kate Moss lipstick in 08 and the Essence blush in Adorable.

Obviously this definitely mattifies, but I have to say, in person, it looks a lot more powdered.  It doesn't have the same effect as a matte lipstick, it just looks dry and cracked.  Not a huge fan of this trick, it just doesn't work very well.
