everyday mattes

So we all know matte liquid lipsticks are having a moment right now. They are simply everywhere with brands popping up left, right and centre to share their winning creations. I’ve fallen for this craze pretty hard, you’ve seen my collection video and it’s not the most petite selection in the world! What can I say I like me a lipstick that stays in place all day whilst delivering up a strong amount of pigmentation ;) Just means you get to faff less throughout the day which I’m 100% on board with.

But which ones should you pickup for a more paired back, natural daily glam? For me, I’ve got a full time job so can’t necessarily reach for those deep purple shades on the daily. Does that mean I have to save my collection for the weekends? Luckily not as even some of my matte options are perfect shades and formulas to be office or day time appropriate.

For example the Sleek Matte Me range. Not only are these super affordable, they are lightweight on the lips yet stay in place all day. The shade Birthday Suit is that perfect wearable nude and has pretty much been my only lip colour of choice since picking it up. For something a touch more pinky it has to be the Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Crush. One of the only lipsticks that yields multiple complements within an hour, you know you’re onto something good when they notice it in the office! Would rather a lipstick? Then MAC’s Mehr is the one for you. Whether you’re rocking the 90s grunge look or love those darker brown lip colours, Mehr is a fast favourite with anyone who picks it up. It’s hard not to love it’s gorgeous, rich colour.

What are your favourite go to matte liquid lipsticks? Are there any you reach for for a daytime look?
