Most Helpful Positive Review Slightly dry but prep before application and your fine
I love this lipstick, I bought Tease and Morphe and love them both. I know matte lipsticks can be drying so 15 min before I apply my lipstick, usually before applying other makeup, I put on Burts Bees chapstick to moisturize my lips. Then before I apply the lipstick I wipe off the excess chapstick and then apply this lipstick. This allows my lips to stay moisturized while still getting a matte color. I could understand that this lipstick may be difficult to apply in colder environments, but if you warm it up a little it should apply smoother.
Also if your lips are always dry, try putting on a thick layer of chapstick before going to bed and maybe invest in a humidifier.
Overall this is very well pigmented and I look forward to trying out some of their other colors!
Most Helpful Critical Review Driest Lipstick I have ever bought
Awful lipstick!, it was so hard to put on..It felt cheap and rough. I have plenty of other brands matte lipsticks and non even come close to how dry this stick is. It felt like childrens makeup. Also I felt the color was off. I bought the color steamy which looks and is described like a true red with blue undertones. When i put it on it was more of a orange red. which looks terrible on me. Urban decay, tarte and nudestix all offer great matte lipsticks that feel much better going on.

This lipstick is EVERYTHING
dsayz from Nor Cal
I only wore this once, but it was different than anything else I've ever tried. It went on very dry and tugged, but it stayed put, and the color was pretty rich. I went to eat and it came off, but cleanly. It didn't smear or leave any staining behind. The strangest part is, it did not dry my lips out! And might I add, I have the driest lips of anyone I've ever heard of. My lips peel for no reason and sometimes Chapstick does not even help. But for some reason this didn't dry my lips out, maybe because it all came off in one swipe. I want to try it again, and see what happens. So far, I think it's a good product for the price point.

The color looked red online but was more orange when I received it
Too dry !!!
Andrea from Woodbridge
It's very dry and really hard to apply evenly. Really disappointed thought it would be a better product
Elizabeth from Richmond
Beautiful neutral red. It's a little drying on the lips on its own, but put on some lip oil or moisturizing chapstick beforehand and that fixes it. Some other reviews were complaining about the shape of the lipstick and how that made it feel awkward applying and with that I have to agree, but for me that's not really an issue because I use a lip brush.
Not my favorite
Not what I was looking for from Boston
I noticed that when I was applying it, it didn't cover my lip like other lipsticks have with one Application.
Mollie from Kansas
I bought for the gorgeous color, but when I tried it I was disappointed, it was hard to apply evenly, after wearing for about an hour it started to look splotchy and was very drying. I wouldn't recommend unless you really need a lipstick and this is all that's available
Perfect red lipstick with blue undertone
Annie from Downey, CA
I'd suggest applying lip balm 10-15 mins before applying this lipstick so it doesn't look dry on your lips. & press a toilet paper square on top of lips to remove any shininess that the balm may add.
Drying and hard to apply
Polly from Los Angeles
I purchased the lipstick because I love the shade and still do but the way the lipstick is shape it's hard to apply on and the formula itself is very drying to my lips. I would not recommend.
Briana from Arizona
The color is beautiful
My score is 50/50.
Lucy from Houston,TX
I use it for work. Unfortunately I have to add another lipstick so that it doesn't dry my lips. Other than that, color and very pretty.

My favorite lipstick
Too busy to reapply from Springfield, MO
I love this lipstick. I have it in two shades now and will definitely buy more. It lasts through the morning day with no reapply (unless I eat). I love that it is Matt and doesn't make my lips sticky
Hanna from Columbus, IN
I've loved so many morphe products but this was a miss. It was super drying. It was also difficult to put on and doesn't stay put

I AM SEEING RED
Sass44 from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
I have tried to find a perfect red lipstick and this one is good, I just don't know if its the right color, I may add it to another one I own, to see if the colors will be that perfect red, I have too many red lipsticks and I said this is the last one I will buy.
I would buy this product again

Mmh from Nc
Great budget lipstick, I like it as much as my higher end brands. It matches well with a few of my budget lip liners
marisasd from Travelers Rest
I decided to try my Mega Matte in Morphe on a night when I wasn't doing anything special; just put my kid to bed and having a glass of wine while watching cooking shows after a long day of work. first of all, Morphe is a beautiful, slightly brick red. the lipstick was a little surprisingly dry at first, but that's to be expected of a matte formulation; it soon went on with very little pull, and wore through my wine with minimal transfer.
the best part, though, was that I fell asleep on the couch and forgot I was wearing it; that's how comfortable it is! I woke up in the morning expecting to find red lipstick smeared all over my face, but no: that ish was still there, and my lips were not cracked or irritated. I'm impressed. 5 stars for this lipstick; one star for my night time adulting.
