Kay Beauty Matte Drama Lipstick Review

I saw a lot of people using Kay Beauty lipsticks and they were giving positive reviews so I always wanted to try Kay Beauty Matte Lipsticks but never really got a chance to try them out. The brand kindly gifted me their newly launched Kay Beauty Matte Drama Lipsticks which is launched in 18 different shades. I have received 8 of them and here are my thoughts on these Kay Beauty Lipsticks.


These Kay Beauty Matte Drama Lipsticks have a luxurious logo-engraved rose gold lid with a colour-coordinated bottom. Their outer packaging is in their signature style with colour-coordinated packaging. I love how these lipsticks are in a magnetic format which makes them easier for travel. The magnet is quite strong and the packaging gives you a high-end feel. Overall, I absolutely love their packaging.

My Thoughts

These Kay Beauty Lipsticks have a comfortable matte formula with an opaque finish in one swipe. They are very comparable to Colourpop Lippie Sticks in terms of formula and texture. I absolutely love how light-weight these lipsticks are but at the same time give a super matte finish. I wear them by prepping my lips with my favourite lip balm.

I found them highly pigmented with a luxuriously rich texture which glides on smoothly in the lips. But chapped lips need to be scrubbed for smooth application. Coming to the bullets, these lipsticks do offer a unique cupid’s bow bullet shape which helps in shaping the lips easily. It does hug the corners of the lips.

I wish they would have disclosed their ingredients in the packaging as well as on their site. Coming to their price, I do feel they are a bit overpriced but I do like their quality a lot and you can definitely get them in any sales.

These Kay Beauty Matte Drama Lipsticks claim to be Cruelty Free, Paraben Free & Vegetarian, but I cannot vouch for that because of the missing ingredients. They are also Dermatologically tested.

They have a good amount of shade range of 18 colours with nudes, pinks, reds, berry tones and browns, so one can easily find their own choice of colour and skin tone. Overall they last for above 6-7 hours and can last a good ole meal. I would rate these lipsticks a 4.5 out of 5.
