Top 5 Matte Lip Shades

Matte Lip Shades To Add To Your Collection

Top 5 Matte Lip Shades

Matte lip products have hit the beauty world by storm, thanks to Kylie Jenner. I am loving these low maintenance products and in one weekend alone I bought seven matte lip products and a further two last week, it's safe to say that I have well and truly jumped on board with this trend. Today's post I am sharing my top five shades, all from high-street stores.

The Nude Lip
Every girl loves finding the perfect nude shade, I always struggled to find one as I have quite pigmented lips and shades just don't seem to show up. However that has changed since I found the NYX Liquid Suede in Soft-Spoken, a beautiful brown nude shade that covers even the pinkest of lips. I never thought I would wear or love a brown lip shade this much but it's beautiful and one of my favourites. If you have a strong natural lip colour then this shade will be perfect for you. 

The Pink Lip
I've always loved rocking a pink lip but I have to get the shade just right to suit my pale complexion. Nothing too fuchsia and nothing too Barbie-ish, I've now found three different brands with the perfect pink shades for fair skin-toned gals like myself. H&M Velvet Lip Cream in Enchant√© is just stunning, it stays put for hours and doesn't feel drying at all. NYX Liquid Suede in Tea & Cookies is slightly lighter than the H&M shade and the formula is more silky however it's just as long wearing. Both beautiful shades and both have fabulous formulas. Sleek Matte Me in the shade Shabby Chic is a gorgeous nude/pink shade that's easy to wear all day. It's the deepest shade out of the three and so pretty.

The A/W Lip
The Sleek Matte Me in Velvet Slipper is my latest purchase and I bought it ready for the Autumn season, my favourite! It's a beautiful deep berry toned shade that looks striking against fair complexions. Although it appears slightly patchy in the swatch I can assure you it does not do this on the lips, you're left with a super matte opaque finish.

All these shades have incredible longevity, the Sleek products lasting the longest for myself and their formula is also super matte but not drying. The H&M shade is also pretty matte but not drying and as mentioned the NYX Liquid Suedes have a slightly silky finish but still appear matte. 

Other brands to try for the beautiful matte look are Maybelline's Vivid Liquid Matte's, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme's and Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor. I've heard wonderful things about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks and also the Too Faced's Melted Matte's, they look divine!
