Top 5 Matte Lipsticks
Matte is back! Soft, saturated lip colour is perfect for completing a fresh, dewy spring make-up look. Seen everywhere from fashion weeks to high street brands, the matte lip is back for the first time in years – and we’re loving it!
The key with matte lipstick is to make sure your lips are well prepped before applying. Buff away dry skin with a toothbrush, and moisturise with a lip balm. Blend a lip liner along outer edges to give your lips definition, then apply your chosen shade.
The velvety, plump finish of a matte lipstick is ideal for daytime – so save your gloss, shimmer and shine for evening and try our top 5 matte lipsticks.
From high-end to high street – here are our favourites…
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm £7.99
These new chunky pencils in 10 shades are super-fun to apply. The pencil shape makes flawless definition a breeze, and the combined shea, mango and coconut butters not only take away that ‘lipsticky’ taste, but are great for moisturising too. Go bold with Audacious or try Barbie-pink Showy.
Nars Multiple Matte £30
We’ve long been fans of Nars Multiple, so we were thrilled to add these new Matte shades to our make-up bag! These soft, creamy sticks have none of the shimmer of their non-matte sisters. Doubling as a cheek and lip tint, they are perfect for pulling your look together. For spring, we’re loving the subtle orange tones of Exumas – or Anguilla for a pretty, dewy finish.
Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Matte £5.49
Kate Moss brings her supermodel flair to her matte lipstick collection for Rimmel. We couldn’t wait to get our hands on these! Available in five stunning colours, from peachy nudes, to berry purples – add a touch of glamour to your make-up with these long-wearing, intense shades.
MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme £17.50
Luxurious, moisturising lipsticks from the make-up experts. Perfect for long-lasting colour that won’t dry out your lips. Try Dress It Up for a soft spring tone – or the vampier Prolong red for evening.
Barry M Ultra Moisturising Lip Paints £4.49
These 8 new shades from bargain high street fave Barry M are enriched with cocoa butter, giving lips a gorgeously soft finish. We love bright coral Flamingo Peach, or get an on-trend berry lip with Vicious Violet.
So there are our top picks for matte lipstick perfection!
