Hi everyone! So the matte finish is really having a moment right now! Everything is matte from foundations to nail polishes, and it`s about time too because I`ve always pretty matte products for the face and lips as opposed to shimmery/glitter products. The only exception to that is probably eyeshadows - the more shimmery the better.
MAC has recently released a new matte lipstick collection, featuring several new shades as well as promoting some permanent shades in the line. The shades I was most looking forward to were `Stone` and `Whirl,` both of which were MAC lipliner shades, but now they are both permanent additions to the matte lipstick range.
In addition to matte being a really big trend, it seems that grey-toned products are also really trending. I remember having a few grey-toned lipsticks and regretting buying them because they didn`t seem to look goo don me, but what a different it makes wearing the right eye and cheek makeup. If you have really warm toned skin like me, and grey-tone products don`t seem to mess well with what you normally wear...try doing an entirely cool toned look so that everything goes with each other. I`ve heard some people say that if you`re going to wear something cool-toned, everything else should be warm-toned, but that just didn`t look right on me.
`Stone` is a grey-brown shade while `Whirl` is rosy. `Whirl` and similar colors were made popular by Kylie Jenner`s throwback lip look. I don`t own either of the lipliners so I can`t compare these lipsticks to their original lip pencil form, but from what I`ve seen online they look to be the same shade. Lip pencils are one of the few makeup items I won`t buy from a mid-high end brand because I don`t really use them and they are pretty expensive for what they are. There are plenty of drugstore lipliners that work great and I would rather buy those dupes.
Thanks for reading! Have you checked out MAC`s new matte lipsticks?
