Have you ever wondered what the secret is to wearing lipstick that doesn’t have to be reapplied every five minutes? The answer is MATTE! Matte lipstick contains a formula that allows lipstick to go on smoothly without any shine or shimmer, which causes it to stay on for hours and hours at a time. Some people may find matte lipstick a little dry when it is applied, but here’s a little tip: Apply some lip balm or Vaseline to lips before applying your matte lipstick; this allows your lips to retain their moisture. With that being said, go out and purchase some matte lipsticks… these are my top three picks:
1. NARS Semi- Matte- $26 (Best long lasting)- This lipstick contains a non-drying formula that leaves lips feeling conditioned while the lipstick will last you the entire day.
2. Black Opal Cosmetics Color Splurge Luxe Lipstick- $7.50 (Best Matte)- Infused with vitamins A,C, and E, this lipstick contains a very high pigment value and feels great!
3. Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip- $25 (Best Faux Matte)- If you’re not really feeling matte lips and you find you’re lips becoming somewhat dry, this is a great alternative to your typical matte lipstick. It has a cream base that doesn’t leave lips feeling dry and chappy.
I Hope these matte tips work out for you & with Valentine’s Day around the corner, you really will be able to kiss n’ NEVER tell!
