What do you think of matte lipstick?

Like it or dislike it? I think it works if you use the right colors.

I like matte lipsticks but my lips dry out soooo easily. They are too drying for me usually so I have to put a lip balm or gloss over them eventually. I prefer a creamy/glossy feel, not super shiny though. Super shiny can look good sometimes but mostly I think it just looks sticky lol. I'm not a big fan of a nude matte though as I find it washes out a lot of people. There are always exceptions though.

I like matte lipsticks more too because I can't pull off a high shine or really sparkle lipstick. But I have gotten into Metallic lipsticks as well so far I love them too but usually stick with matte or cream

I'm not a huge fan of matte on myself, but it looks nice on most other people. I just have too many 90s flashbacks with matte myself...

I think I would prefer a matte pink lipstick. Shine is nice, but matte is sophisticated.

I love a matte lipstick! I love a bold lip and personally dislike high shine and shimmer on my lips.

Stila Color Balm for the win again!  Matte, soothing peppermint oil, and amazing pigment!

I don't like it all that much just because I find matte lipsticks super drying.

Unfortunantly they don't work for everyone, but experimenting with a lip balm over it or under it will keep the matte look and help it not dry up.

It really depends on the color. My red lipsticks are almost always matte, there's just something about glossy red lips that is a bit too much for me. I feel like some colors just don't work well when they're matte.

 

The NARS Pure Matte lipsticks are my favorite. They have great pigmentation and aren't overly drying like most mattes.

Nars Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio is so beautiful, such a universal red. Unless they are sheer, I think reds need to be matte or at least satin...glossy full coverage/ true red just looks garish in my opinion.

 

I wear that with a nude lipliner all over the lips under as a base...stays on so well!

I personally love them... though when i first got into lipsticks i hated them. I prefer them now because theyre so long lasting.

 

I love NARS pure matte lipsticks.. those last a lifetime even after eating. Or WNW (drugstore brand) lipsticks.. cheap but great colors and lasting power.

LOVE Nars semi-matte lipsticks.

Hi MintShake,

 

I agree! Certain colors look GORGEOUS in a matte shade but sadly I've worn a few that looked not so nice. :smileysad: I love matte reds and rose colors but some corals and oranges are pretty too! I really like the Nars lipsticks for matte selections- so many to choose from!

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Love. Most all my lipsticks are Matte. I never liked shine, or shimmer at all in a lipstick. They work for me!
