One lip formula that I and everybody else can not get enough of is a matte finish! It’s been on trend for the past couple of years now and it doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon. They’re highly pigmented and they last way longer than any other finish. They’re so ideal for long busy days where you don’t want to be nor have the time to be topping up your makeup all the time. You also want something that is super comfortable. Matte lips can have the tendency (particularly if you already suffer with dry lips) to feel drying and unpleasant when worn. But since I’ve been trying out a number of different matte lip products for quite some time now, I’ve managed to find some amazing formulas that don’t give you that awful rough feeling.
I have to start with my favourite brand of recent times and a matte lip favourite of many of you I’m sure. The NYX soft matte lip creams are one of the kindest and lightest matte liquid lipsticks I’ve come across. Not only do these beauties glide onto the lips with ease and no stickiness, they also dry super fast and leave your lips feeling so soft. I have never experienced nor have I heard of anyone experiencing any dryness or an unpleasant feeling on their lips whilst wearing and after they’ve worn these. Some of my favourites include Cannes (a peachy nude colour), Abu Dhabi (a warm toned nude) and Transylvania (a dark plum). I have a full post here on the NYX soft matte lip creams.
Another matte lip product I have been absolutely loving and completely blew me away when I first tried them is this Velvet Matte Lip Crayon by Primark’s P.S range. Yes you heard me right, Primark and yes that does mean these wonderful matte lip crayons are only a couple of pounds each. These are so easy to apply onto the lips with the use of the crayon and they feel so nourishing and moisturising which a lot of matte products never seem to provide but these really do. You can’t even tell whether they have dried or not because they still feel just as nourishing hours later but just with a matte finish. They’re honestly so comfortable and wearable for everyday. They last such a long while too even with the nourishing feel. Plus the pigmentation of these is incredible and I honestly could not recommend these enough to everyone. Please go out and get them for yourselves you won’t regret it!
On the topic of nourishing and moisturising matte lip formulas, this organic lipstick called Damask Rose* from the Green People is such a lovely formula. It isn’t the most pigmented straight away, but once you build it up and achieve the gorgeous nude rose shade which also has peach undertones running through it it looks like a beautiful shade. It’s a fab colour for spring/summer time and would look so flattering on so many different skin tones. It’s one of those your lips but better shades. We all love them, don’t we? What really gives this lipstick such a moisturising formula is that it contains sustainable beeswax and organic carnauba wax, which helps to keep the matte finish comfortable on your lips all day long. Also the vitamin E properties also found in this product soften and smooth your lips. It’s such a high quality cruelty free comfortable matte lipstick option to go for.
