Right now, it seems like the lip look is a glossy one. Lip gloss is back in full force, baby. I, for one, never thought I’d see a Lancôme Juicy Tubes renaissance in my future, but here we are. And I’m not complaining about it.
But although I’ve been experimenting with various lip glosses and oils recently, I’ve decided I will never stray from my tried-and-true matte lipstick. Sure, I might reach for something glossy from time to time, but my go-to is always a matte finish. It’s not exactly on-trend right now, but I think the look is 100% timeless. The finish looks so sophisticated and grown-up, and I instantly feel put-together whenever I have a matte lipstick on. In fact, sometimes when I’m especially lazy about doing my makeup but need to look like I actually did it because I’m going out or have something for work, I’ll apply some matte lipstick, mascara, a touch of blush, and a brow product, and I’m all set. No need to do a full face when I’ve got a bold lip on. I find that the product really elevates a look.
Plus, can we just talk about how matte lipsticks seem to be invincible when faced with beverages and food? Those types of lipsticks have staying power all night long. Have I sold you on them yet? Take a look at Who What Wear editors’ favorite picks below.
