Newsflash for whoever said that matte lipsticks are guaranteed to dry your lips out: you were wrong. The texture of this Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick from Bourjois is so light and so soft that, whenever I put it on, I have to double-check that I haven’t accidentally applied some lip gloss instead. But, nope – there’s zero shine when it comes to this classic-red-meets-zesty-orange shade.
Remember how satisfying it was to get a new set of crayons to play with as a kid? Well, that’s what trying out this NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil feels like. The pencil-style format of this lippie makes achieving a perfectly contoured finish a breeze, and if you’re an amateur, it’s the ideal tool to use if you want to give the ombré effect a go.
Currently, the no-make-up make-up look is where it’s at. Once the preserve of super-chic Parisian girls, you can now get on board with the style thanks to the likes of this Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick from NYX Professional Makeup. And don’t let the silky texture of this lippie fool you – if you want to nail a natural matte pout in seconds, then make this your go-to, stat.
Red is probably the most popular lipstick colour going, so why is this Semi-Matte Lipstick from NARS even worth shouting about? Well, not only is it ultra-moisturising but it also only takes one coat of this bad boy to completely cover your lips; that’s right, folks – no crumbling lippie over here! So, if you’re after a lipstick that’ll complement every look in your spring wardrobe, this delightful peachy-red shade should do the trick.
