2017 Is all about matte lipstick. All well and good for the Glossy Magazine Shoots but what lipsticks are best for our 2017 real Brides.
I have researched 3 top Brands En Trend colours for 2017.
An important point to remember with matte lipsticks is PREP your lips!
Matte lipstick picks up on all imperfections, so if you have dry lips this will be more evident when wearing this type of lipstick.
Use a lip scrub and then a moisturising lip balm ‘Tropic’ skin care do an amazing one! I would suggest using this a few days prior to applying your lipstick and use regularly so your lips are in A1 condition.
A lip primer is essential to apply under your lipstick. Mac do a wonderful lip primer which keeps lips looking great throughout the day.
The lipsticks I have researched are Tom Ford ‘First Time’ £39Charlotte Tilbury ‘Sexy Sienna’ £23 and Dolce and Gabbana ‘Red Desire’ £29.
All apply really well with a beautiful creamy texture. I would say that the Tom Ford lipstick lasted the best and left my lips feeling soft after use.
The Dolce Gabbana stained my lips as a rich red can do but did not bleed into my lip line which was pleasing.
Charlotte Tilbury left my lips a little dry after use and I felt that the pigment lacked a little, out of the 3 lipsticks the Charlotte Tilbury felt the least expensive of the 3 and the lid felt flimsy. I applied all the lipsticks after using a primer and I used the lip line from the same brand as the lipstick.
Please feel free to comment on any of the lipsticks you have tried and tested. If you have questions please post here for me to reply.
