When I think matte, I think Dita von Teese. That girl wears red matte lipstick like she was born with it on her mouth. Stunning, simply stunning!
However, when I try to wear it, well, it’s far from stunning and more in the realms of hello Bozo the Clown. Plus it tends to migrate around my mouth, onto my chin, up my cheek, and across my forehead. Needless to say, it’s messy as hell for some reason and I can’t pull it off.
As with eyeshadow, lipstick and lip creams in a matte finish just don’t get on well with me for some reason.
Maybe NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream can change my mind!
I want a One Night in Bangkok Palette. How awesome would that be?
Oh well I’ll settle for NYX One Night in Morocco instead I guess……with a Chanel-like vibe this palette should appeal to the “grown ups” among us. Lord knows I’m not one of them but if you like more sophisticated shades of matte eyeshadow you might want to check this one out. Personally I have a certain aversion to matte shades of shadow so taking this palette on I expected and braced for the worst.
My fav brush is the MAC 224 but at nearly $30 for a single brush, well, this blending action doesn’t come cheap! If you’re currently looking for a budget alternative that will fit comfortably within the crease the NYX Crease Brush should do the trick cheaply!
