Love the look of matte lipstick, but hate the feel? L’Oreal Paris has the answer.
Sat hello to the Infallible Lip Paint Matte collection (R179.95 each). The colours vary from peachy perfect nude through to startling purple, so you’ll definitely find one that suits you.
Unlike many matte formulas, this one glides on effortlessly, and creates an even finish. I do find it a bit awkward to get a crisp edge with the doe foot applicator, but that’s easily sorted with a lip brush.
As the formula contains silicone, it doesn’t last quite as long as others, but the comfort factor far out-weighs the longevity for me. Obviously you still need to have your lips in top condition, as the darker shades especially tend to emphasize any dry patches.
After the initial creaminess fades, you’re left with a gorgeous stain that lasts hours and hours, and wears pretty evenly, so won’t leave you with a 90s lip liner.
I love these, and if you’re a fuss-free kind of girl, or a matte lipstick newbie, you’ll love them too.
