Embracing The Matte



 Matte lips are not often something I sport, but recently I've been trying to embrace the matte lips. There are two products I've been gravitating towards, the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 20 and the Collection (formerly Collection 2000) Creme Puff in Fairy Cake. The latter of the two is a peachy pink colour that comes with a doe foot applicator which makes things really easy to apply and manage. Wear isn't amazing on this one, but the colour is gorgeous and the formula is smooth meaning that this isn't drying on the lips. 

The Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 20 is a bright vibrant pink colour, which is a super summer colour. This comes in a traditional lipstick form and the formula is so creamy it glides onto the lips. I find that layering this lipstick makes for the longest wear, adding a layer, blotting, then reapplying and repeating the process again. This lipstick is a confidence colour, I always feel so happy and colourful when wearing this. Both of these are really nice colours, am I completely in love with the matte lips? Not really, I love the colours but sometimes the formula can irritate me slightly. It could be the fact I'm not using to wearing matte lipsticks but I just feel they're much more maintenance than say a gloss. Maybe it's just me, maybe I've not found 'the one' yet, but for now, I'll just stick to what I know. 

Are you a matte or glossy lover?

  2. Hmm, I'd probably say I love both matte and glossy equally! Glossy for everyday shades, and matte for bold ones. I have that Kate lipstick and I really adore it! The shade of that Cream Puff lip cream looks really pretty, suits you really nicely! :)

  3. I do like a matte lippy and I love the Kate Moss ones! You should try the Revlon Matte Balms, they're the ones which got me really into matte lips! x

  4. I definitely prefer a glossy lip! Like you said, matte lip products are more maintenance and I'm all about making life easier ;-) I do love the colour of the collection lipstick though - It's beautiful! Great post x

  7. I love both matte lips and glossy lips, but recently I've been leaning more towards glossy lips but matte ones are really convenient if you're eating or drinking something! I love the colour of the Rimmel lipstick!
