If you are not already a matte-lip lover, then we have the perfect reasons and the perfect shades for you to convert into one! Matte lipsticks give an intense colour finish as they are formulated with more pigment than their glossy cousins. Glossy and creamy lipsticks give you a pretty and flirty look, whereas matte lipsticks are suited for bolder looks.

Your diet does not include eating lipstick

Your diet does not include eating lipstick

Have you ever bitten into a burger and found all your lipstick on it? Well, matte lipsticks are formulated in such a way that they dry into a matte finish that won’t transfer. So you can eat, drink or kiss without worrying about your lipstick coming off! Try the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in Mulberry Feast for an intense berry colour that’s just perfect for the winter.

Hair stuck on your lips is not your favourite thing

Hair stuck on your lips is not your favourite thing

It’s happened to one and all. You step outside wearing a glossy lipstick and the wind blows your hair straight onto your lips. And it sticks. Avoid this scenario with matte lipsticks as they settle into a dry finish and no matter how windy it gets, your hair won’t stick to your lips! Try the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lip Color in Rosy Mind which has a built-in primer that gives you a long-lasting, non-sticky, smooth finish.

 

When you want to balance the drama

When you want to balance the drama

When you wear a glittery eye or metallic eyeshadow, you may want to opt for a matte lipstick so that it balances out the amount of shine in your makeup look. So opt for a matte lipstick that does not compete with the shimmery drama on your eyes. Try the Lakmé Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Color with Argan Oil in Rosy Lips for a festive, bright look.
