My Favorite Matte Lipstick
One of my goals last school year was to wear more lip color. No joke! 😉 I just love how a gloss or lipstick finishes a look. More often than not, I’m a Burt’s Bees kinda girl, but if I want a little color I head straight for these Milani lipsticks!
My sister actually introduced them to me. It was one of those, “What are you wearing?” moments, where she proceeded to give me all the details and let me try the lipstick on. With one swipe, I knew I was in love. Thank goodness for sisters.
Since trying out one, I now own four. They’re about $7 each, so they don’t break the bank and I don’t feel bad having options! These lipsticks have a matte (not shiny) finish and they feel just like chapstick on my lips! I love it. No cracking or dry lips. Just color.
If I could only pick one, my favorite color would have to be Matte Naked. It’s the perfect everyday lip color, just a few shades darker than my actual lip color.
If you’re looking for a fun pop of pink, try Matte Orchid! It brightens up a whole outfit, especially a simple one. These lipsticks are super easy to apply!
- Apply chapstick first. I find this gives me a smooth base and helps the color go on better.
- Use a lipliner if you like. I usually use a lip liner that is the same color as my lips, or the lip color I’m wearing. NYX has some great affordable ones!
- Then I do a swipe or two of the lip color and blot! You’re good to go.
Have you tried any of these Miliani lipsticks? Which one is your favorite?
