I’ve never been a big fan of wearing lipstick, usually opting for low maintenance lip balms and easy-to-wear lip glosses instead. But since getting lip fillers, I’ve become a whole lot more adventurous and have been wearing bright and bold lip colours on a daily basis. My favourite range of lip colours at the moment? The much hyped-about L’Oreal Matte Lip Paints.
The L’Oreal Matte Lip Paints are super-bright and super-matte, but they’re so much easier to wear (and feel really comfy on your lips) when compared to other matte lip products I’ve tried in the past. One thing they do have in common with other matte lipsticks? They’re long-wearing and they boast incredible colour pay off… everything I look for in a lip colour!
The packaging may look like a regular lipgloss tube, but the L’Oreal Matte Lip Paints have a very handy doe-foot applicator to ensure even, precise application every time – even while on the go, and without a mirror. The non-sticky formula glides on smoothly and effortlessly for a gorgeous slick of long-lasting colour that adds instant polish to your look. Most days, I’ve worn nothing but foundation, a coat of mascara, and my favourite L’Oreal Matte Lip Paint (the shade ‘Apocalypse Red’), and I’ve received so many compliments from friends and family members – and even the odd cashier!
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect nude lip colour to wear with a smoky eye for years, and I think I’ve finally found it in L’Oreal Matte Lip Paints in ‘Hollywood Beige’. It’s the perfect nude for my skin tone, it doesn’t make my teeth look yellow (unlike so many nude lipsticks I’ve tried), and it stays put for a good four to five hours – and through my morning coffee.
Regardless of whether you’re in the market for a sophisticated red or the perfect nude, I’m pretty sure that you’ll find your match within the range of L’Oreal Matte Lip Paints. From a vivid hot pink to a daring purple hue, there’s a shade to suit any mood and every occasion. Take a quick look through the gallery below to see how I’ve worn them:
