Matte lipstick has grown in popularity in recent years. Truth be told, we’ve been obsessed since the very beginning, and we’re pleased to see that the trend is set to continue in 2018! Are you ready to rock the look? Here’s what you need to know.
Paint it Black
The matte lipstick trend meets the black lipstick movement for a dark, grungy look that’s totally current and edgy. Black matte lipstick is available from numerous brands, but we love Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Alien from NYX Professional Makeup. Want something a little more subtle? Give Maybelline’s Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick range a try. The matte lipstick shades in this collection range from Sinful Stone, a moody dark grey shade, to Wicked Berry, a rich, deep purple.
Colour it Coral
When it comes to shopping for matte liquid lipstick, you’ll want to add a coral toned product to your purse. It’s 2018’s hottest makeup colour after all, and Yves Saint Laurent has the just the shade to hit this trend perfectly. Check out YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Corail Anti-Mainstream for a luxurious, highly pigmented colour that goes on in just one stroke.
Berry, Berry Nice
All shades of berry are popular in 2018 – we’ve seen the hues appear on the lips of some of the world’s most glamorous women. Match the look with L’Oréal Infallible Paints/Lips Matte in Velvet Pout for a high-impact colour that offers full coverage.
What Goes on Must Come Off
Lipstick is a wonderful cosmetic that offers us the freedom to play, but what goes on must eventually come off. This may be a challenge if you’re using highly pigmented products, so you should consider investing in a lip colour remover. Products like Maybelline’s Superstay Eraser works wonders to get the colour off your lips without having to scrub.
Now you’re armed with all the information you need to keep your lip look on trend for the upcoming year. Remember to have fun and experiment with different shades to find what works for you!
