As yet, I have not purchased this type of lipstick from Mizrahi; however, I wanted to help those who wear mattes, ergo the reason for only two stars (does not reflect on actual product that I am considering purchasing when on sale). In addition, I am going to mark "recommend" in order to get my statements posted.
As we age, our skin loses moisture, especially our lips. Might I suggest that for those unhappy with Isaac's matte lipstick to make sure you exfoliate dry skin from your lips. I use a damp, not wet, clean wash cloth, rub gently (do not overdo) and then pat dry. Next, apply a lip moisturizer or balm a few minutes before applying your matte (give it time to "absorb"). Next, gently wipe off the moisturizer/balm, and apply your matte lipstick. It may seem like a hassle, but the steps go quickly.
I do not guarantee that these steps work for all, but it works for me and friends (we share makeup tips). We find that exfoliating our lips and moisturizing provides a smooth base for lipsticks, especially mattes.
Rated 1 out of 5 by GRANDMA I too dry
I have never had a lipstick that was so drying on the lips. It was coming up in pieces as I was applying it. Very surprised at isaac for having a product like this. I would not even give it 1 star.

I'm surprised at the bad reviews for this lipstick. When you apply it, it does feel like it's going on "dry" but your lips don't feel dry & there is NO feathering or traveling anywhere. The color last almost like a stain but is easily removed when you want. I rcvd hooray & darling. On me, darling is a nice merlot/wine color, dark but not too dark. I was hoping for a more purple color but it leans red. I am buying more make-up from Isaac as I am pretty impressed with his line & his passion for creating the perfect colors.
Rated 1 out of 5 by JRAE Just awful for application.... Perfect Color
This matte version is so dry that it drags across my lips pulling and leaving no color. The perfect color "just looking" which is amazing. Sadly returning.

I agree with one other customer. The lipstick was dry and hard to apply. My lips looked shriveled after getting it on. Od tube?? I got the Bridgehampton. I was going to send it back, but I went out of town and missed my deadline to send back.
Rated 1 out of 5 by jazzi Really awful
I don't know if I received an old tube of lipstick or not, but the lipstick I got was VERY difficult to apply, was drying and lips looked pasty and shriveled after application.

Love this lipstick! I got the "Hooray" color and it's fabulous! It goes on smoothy and has true staying power. I just love it! Going to purchase the "Bikini Bottom" color in Isaac's other formula as well. Happy with my purchase!!

I am a huge Isaac fan. Delighted to see matte color in lipstick. And the color lasts. Not a sticky greasy product either. The shade is glamorous in complimenting what my younger skin tone used to be. Don't hesitate to treat yourself. Isaac is magical with color.
