As the saying goes, “Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world”! In my case, I prefer a matte finish. Even though I do have a couple of lip glosses in my collection, matte is mainly my preference. Here are three (3) reasons why I love a matte lip!
#1. It Makes a Statement
When you are going for a bold lip, matte is the perfect option. The color intensifies through its velvety finish giving you that statement lip you are going for!
#2. It’s Long Wear
Matte lipstick tends not to smudge or fade as quickly as lip gloss . Matte finishes are known for its staying power. Meaning that you can kiss your honey, drink your coffee, and have lunch before you have to touch it up!
#3. It’s Not Sticky
When I apply lip gloss, it tends to make my lips feel sticky. The texture of a matte finish is the complete opposite. It gives you a smooth velvety (dry) finish that doesn’t feel gooey or sticky.
Now that I’ve shared a few reasons why I love a matte finish, here are a few of my favorite matte lipsticks!
My all-time favorite matte lipstick is Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick! This is my staple go-to lipstick! It’s all of my top three reasons why I love a matte finish wrapped up in one! I purchase this lipstick at my local Sephora! My favorite shades in this lipstick are Bauhau5 and Vampira.
My favorite color in MAC’s matte lipstick shades is Ruby Woo!! This shade just gives your lips total life! The matte finish intensifies the color of this shade which is very well pigmented and definitely has the staying power to last all day! I also like other shades such as Smoke Purple and SIN!
NYX offers a variety of colors in which I love! Anywhere from nudes to bold hues such as electric blue, you are able to find with NYX. However, the only downside that I have experienced with this lipstick is that it does not give you the total matte long wear. It’s definitely budget friendly but you may have to touch it up a bit more during the day.
