Lipsticks are a necessity in every girls makeup kit. It makes the lips pop hence its importance. However, recently the liquid matte lipstick became popular. Until recently, liquid matte lipstick was a sort of an irrelevant category mostly found in the dustiest aisles of the drugstore beauty section. But then, just like that, it became popular again and liquid versions of our favorite shades flooded the market. So many people have decided to toss the gloss and give matte lipstick a try and I dare say its been a major hit. In fact, its now a requirement for every girls makeup purse.
Liquid matte lipsticks are basically lipsticks disguised as lip-glosses. They come in smooth liquid form, are easy to apply and are super pigmented. Seconds after being applied, they dry and look just like lipstick.
Pros: They are easy to apply. One or two quick swipes, and you’re good to go. They are hard to get off! Seriously, you can wear these things from 9-5 without it fading. On average, they are cheaper than your average favorite lipstick.
Cons: They are really hard to remove. You will have to scrub and scrub to get it off.
Tips for wearing liquid matte lipsticks: Always make sure your lips are moisturized before applying your lipstick. Use a lip liner to define the lips. It makes the look pop better.
To take off the matte lipstick, put some olive/castor/coconut oil on your lips for a few minutes. Wipe off gently until the lipstick comes off. Do not apply an extra coat after the first coat has dried off. This results to cracked lips so for the sake of your lips, only use this once in a while for occasions when you don’t want your lipstick to ever fade.
