To Matte or not to Matte?

Matte lipsticks have been all the rage this year!
They've made a huge comeback. It's very 60's-retro glam.
Here is Drew Barrymore sporting a cheerful pink-matte lipstick.
I love the natural look of this hue on her.
And then we have the lovely Katherine Heigl... Wowza! She has a huge smile!

Katy Perry wearing a super-retro shade of pink.
Totally Barbie-style, if ya ask me.

Or, you can strut EXTREMELY glamorous matte lips like Heidi Klum is doing here.

My thoughts on Matte Lips...
  • Matte lipsticks usually stay put. You don't have to worry so much about bleeding, smearing or the always embarrassing "lipstick on the teeth" incidents.
  • They can be less-dramatic. By using a soft-toned matte lipstick, it really can compliment your natural beauty and skin-tones. It's not as dramatic as a shiny lipstick or gloss.
  • Do they look as kissable as a soft, shiny lip? I wonder if the guys in our lives are more inclined to kissing a glossy or a matte lip.... hmmm....
So friends, let me know what you think!
Have you tried wearing Matte Lipsticks?
If so, did you like it?


  1. I don't wear lipstick so I'm probably not the best judge but I like them. I'm not a huge fan of the glossy feel so I should probably try matte.

  2. I usually like glossy, but those pics are way cute! I might have to try the matte!

  3. Love this blog!! Totally added it to my list of must reads.
    P.S. So glad you loved SF! :)
