When speaking of long lasting, we usually go for matte lipsticks. However, besides the long lasting benefits, matte lipsticks come with a lot more. matte lipstick gives your lips no sheen nor shimmer, but that doesn’t make it any less fun. Actually, if you have never gone for the matte lipsticks, you could be missing out.
Why should we try matte lipsticks?
Matte lipsticks stays on your lips, not on your food. Meanwhile, lip gloss always fades after you eat. Thus, you have to take out the mirror and apply it again. Not very convenient isn’t it?
Okay, you’re cool with applying the lip gloss again after eating. But imagine you’re on a date with your crush or boyfriend. Things are going very well and the kissing part is already in your near future. What if after kissing your lip color disappears? What if your date opens his eyes and see a pale ghost? Long lasting matte lipsticks is obviously a better choice for dates than lip gloss.
Lip gloss is not windy days’ favorite. Not beach days’ favorite either. Because matte lipsticks are not sticky. It also stays where you apply it on. Wind, hair and sticky lips, what a nightmare! So are sandy lips.
In contrast to the glossy lipsticks, matte lipsticks give you a more natural look.
Are the reasons above enough to motivate you? Let’s get yourself a matte lipstick right away to get the long lasting, natural and sticky free lips. If you don’t know what lipsticks you should go for, take a look at this list.
