I received this in one of my last Lust Have It boxes before they closed down. I really loved the bright pink pigment of this lippie. It was like barbie pink. Stunning colour and definitely commands attention. Didn't last long through drinking or eating, expected really for a lippie. But I did notice it had a lipstain effect after some of the lippie had come off. I would probably repurchase.

Mellow Ultra Matte Lipstick in Madness Review
I got this lippie in the Staff Picks BBBE. I don’t usually use lipstick, but I’m always willing to try it and look for the one that might drag me away from glosses, balms, and pencils.
This comes in a little light green box with mellow branding in gold and the shade colour sticker ‘madness’ on the end to identify the shade.
When you remove the case from the box, it is very reminiscent of a plastic tampon! Like most lippie cases, the lid pulls off and the lipstick screws up.
The colour is gorgeous - a deep red/crimson, and I’d really love to be able to wear it, but like most reds, when I applied it I looked like I have heart disease. This is because of my colouring and no reflection on the lipstick. The product claim is that it glides on smoothly, leaving a velvety smooth, hydrating finish. It meets this claim, and my lips did feel nice.
Unusually, the lipstick has a lovely scent that reminds me of coconut – yum!
I’m very sad that the colour didn’t suit me as I really liked the lipstick. At $15 it is a very good lipstick and one I’d recommend to anyone whose colour tone suits it.
I bought Mellow's lipstick, Madness, after learning about the brand from BR, and deciding to check out their website.
The matte lipstick comes in a cream case with gold accents, and "Mellow" written in gold on the outside of the case. Mellow is also engraved into the lipstick itself.
The lipstick looks and feels great on. The formula is actually only slightly matte, more of a satin, so Mellow are correct in describing it as a creamy matte lipstick. It does not dry out my lips like other matte lipsticks do. It also has very good staying power, with only slight touch-ups needed throughout the day after eating and drinking.
Tips: I am a cool-toned person, and this shade is very much a blue-based red. So it will definitely suit cool-toned people.
I love this brand especially because its a local NZ brand and also because it is cruelty free, paraben free and vegan! The lipstick itself is so so smooth and creamy even though it's matte. It is so hard to find creamy matte lipsticks because I find that most brands dry out my lips so much. These don't at all and my lips are still fine after wearing these for an entire day. The application is also really nice although I would recommend lip pencil because since it's so creamy, the colour can move around a bit
