23 Matte Lipsticks That Will Suit Your Skin Tone


23 Matte Lipsticks That Will Suit Your Skin Tone

Its such a great time for makeup lovers, with several options available in the market you can have whatever you like.There is no dearth of choices anymore.Everybody is looking for shade which stands them out .I personally love it when someone ask me about the lipstick shade which I am wearing and hate it when someone comes to my place and tries to wear my lippi shade leaving beside few close ones.:P

Coming to the matte lipsticks.. I know few hate the chalky feeling and inevitable dry patches on the lips but if the formula is right then there is nothing like a matte lippi..So here I am sharing with 23 MATTE LIPSTICK SHADES which took my weeks to do..Why weeks?? I first took all the mattes out, then swatched them and separated the best out..Which was then followed by the lip swatch marathon and then the editing and voice over and in the end this blog post..So you see a simple project takes so much of an effort ..Hope you value it and enjoy it 🙂

So here we go 🙂

Shade      It is a chameleon and seems to change its shade under different light and also depend on how you do your makeup. During the day, it is like a warm medium toned pinky brown, but inside the room it seems to be a muted dusty brown which leans more towards peach than pink

MAC Matte Lipstick Dangerous


Shade     It’s a bright orange lipstick with strong orange red undertones in it. I have seen similar shade worn by Kareena, Deepika many times. Thing with oranges is that they either look too bright or wash you out but this one is for keeps. Just too pretty to be ignored.

Price: 1350


Faces Ultimate Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick Spice


Shade: This lipstick is in natural brown color which falls into the category of nude shades. It has some very obvious golden shimmer which I don’t like at all. In fact I don’t really understand the thought of adding shimmer to a nude shade. The color looks darker in bullet and on the bottom sticker but in lips swatches its lighter. You can get the exact bullet color on layering the product but then the sticky and dry feel will kill your mood.

Price: 599 for 2.5gm

Price: 599


Loreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick Glamour Fuchsia


Shade: This is mostly an evening wear shade but then it is a show stealer. Women of all ages can have it. Young college goers would use it on some special occasions alone while others can wear it on any evening depending on your mood. Matte deep fuchsia it is- total love!

Price: INR 899


Loreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick Blaze of Red


Shade: These go true to their name- moist matte which means they go smooth on lips while application like a moist lipstick and still give a beautiful matte finish. There is no dry feeling while application but you got to have well exfoliated lips for any matte lipstick and this is no exception

Price: INR 899
