Everyday Mattes

So we all know matte liquid lipsticks are having a moment right now. They are simply everywhere with brands popping up left, right and centre to share their winning creations. I’ve fallen for this craze pretty hard, you’ve seen my collection video and it’s not the most petite selection in the world! What can I say I like me a lipstick that stays in place all day whilst delivering up a strong amount of pigmentation ;) Just means you get to faff less throughout the day which I’m 100% on board with.

But which ones should you pickup for a more paired back, natural daily glam? For me, I’ve got a full time job so can’t necessarily reach for those deep purple shades on the daily. Does that mean I have to save my collection for the weekends? Luckily not as even some of my matte options are perfect shades and formulas to be office or day time appropriate.

For example the Sleek Matte Me range. Not only are these super affordable, they are lightweight on the lips yet stay in place all day. The shade Birthday Suit is that perfect wearable nude and has pretty much been my only lip colour of choice since picking it up. For something a touch more pinky it has to be the Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Crush. One of the only lipsticks that yields multiple complements within an hour, you know you’re onto something good when they notice it in the office! Would rather a lipstick? Then MAC’s Mehr is the one for you. Whether you’re rocking the 90s grunge look or love those darker brown lip colours, Mehr is a fast favourite with anyone who picks it up. It’s hard not to love it’s gorgeous, rich colour.

What are your favourite go to matte liquid lipsticks? Are there any you reach for for a daytime look?

  • I love seeing the shape everyones MAC lipsticks turn out to be after you use them for a while!! I really want to get MAC’s Mehr it looks like such a pretty shade! <3

  • I couldn’t agree more about Mac Mehr: I really like this one because it sits right in between a nude/neutral and a bold lip! Gorgeous! Its shape in the picture definitely tells us how well loved this one is!


  • Tee hee hee, look at the shape of Mehr… :-D Great color though.

  • These are all such stunning shades! These are the kinds of colours I tend to gravitate towards as well. x


  • I own very few matte lip products, and generally I go for a satin or glossy look but after reading this post I definitely have an idea of where to start looking if I’m ready to jump about the matte-lip train! :)

  • Matte lips are my fave! I find no other finish to look as good on my face, as matts do. Strange sentence, but true. I don’t really like any other finish other than matte lips! :)

    I’ve been hearing/seeing so much about the Sleek Matte Me range at the moment; they really seem to have taken the blogging world by storm this summer! I’m definitely going to get a-swatching next time I’m in on of their stockists!
