Meet Matte

Now I know I just posted about how I loooove metallic lipsticks, but I still love matte lips too. But like most people I have a love/hate relationship with matte lips. Sometimes I feel like Goldilocks. Trying to find a formula that’s not too dry, not too matte, but is just right. 

I picked up a few new mattes recently and while they may not be the most Spring/Summer colors I wanted to try something a little outside of my comfort zone.


From Ulta I picked up two new NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Lip Creams in the shades Alien and Stone Fox. I also picked up Maybelline Vivid Matte Lip Color in the shade Grey Envy.



Swatches Top to Bottom: Stone Fox, Alien, Grey Envy

I LOVE the NYX Liquid Suede Lip Creams. The formula is amazing, its creamy and not drying yet dries down almost completely and can last all day. Or at least for an event. As  I discovered when I wore Alien for the first time, it is definitely not sushi proof! But these shades are perfectly opaque and not at all patchy.

Here is Alien in action. I have to say black lipstick definitely made me feel like a badass

This was my first Maybelline Vivid Matte Lip Color purchase. This shade is beautiful, its a great everyday color that just leans to the cooler taupey-greyness. While the line calls itself matte, it is not. This formula does not dry down all the way nor is it transfer proof. It transfers just like any regular cream lipstick. Its comfortable to wear all day.

Overall I really like these products.

Keep a look out for next week! New and exciting things coming soon!
