Matte lipsticks are a classic. While glossy or metallic finishes come in and out of fashion, matte lipsticks remain a staple in our beauty bags. It's like the little black dress of beauty, a no-brainer foolproof pick that will never let you down. The colour payoff is great, it barely budges and it's long-lasting. The only downside? It can suck the moisture out of your lips. For years, we've been putting up with dry lips but recently, new developments in the beauty world make it possible for matte formulas to be also moisturising. Here are some of the new generation lipsticks that you'll go gaga for.
Shu Uemura Matte Supreme
The new Matte Supreme line of Shu Uemura was inspired by the idea that inks are an expression of creativity and personality. It's an innovative lipstick with a formula that's a cross between lip tints and mattes. Once applied, the colour film becomes thinner and pigments more concentrated. The result is a smudge-resistant lipstick that prevents colour bleeding and delivers sharp, clean finish. You can choose from 15 edgy shades! The full collection will be available by October but it will have a pre-launch at the ION flagship boutique on 28 September.
CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Extrême
Launching next month, this new addition to the CHANEL Rouge Allure is an extremely matte lipstick with a "second-skin effect" that offers comfort and long wear without relinquishing that signature creamy luxuriousness that we love. It will come in six colours, ranging from intense berry and burgundy to vibrant oranges.
