My current lip picks

The three matte lipsticks I’m loving

This year I want to be more adventurous with my makeup, especially with my lip colour! I’m a definitely matte lipstick kinda girl, however, you can cheat lip fillers by copying my glossy full pout here.  I wouldn’t pay more than £20 for a lipstick just because of how likely I am to lose it! And with so many good quality formulas available, why should you need to break the bank for a lipstick? Read on to find out which brands and shades I’m loving right now.



Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid 20 PIONEER

This is the cheapest of the bunch at £9.99 and the only drugstore purchase. Pioneer is a dark berry red shade, which is a little too much for daytime makeup or work. But it’s the perfect shade for drinks or a nice dinner! The formula is a little drying and needs about three coats to get a good amount of pigmentation. But I loved the final look, click here to see me wearing the shade.

You can purchase Pioneer from at £9.99 from Superdrug here.


Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick in QUEEN BEE

This is the perfect daytime nude, with an undertone of lilac. This is the most expensive out of the bunch. The formula isn’t drying and is really long lasting. So one coat lasts all day! Which is ideal considering how many cups of coffee I drink a day! Too Faced is my brand to watch in 2018, if you missed the post, you can catch up here.

You can purchase Queen Bee at £19 from Debenhams here. 


Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in CAFÉ AU CHIC

This is my personal fave out of the three, as the shade is just so different compared to anything else in my lipstick collection! The shade is a greyed beige, so it’s basically a light brown. MAC is always pretty good for lipsticks, so even though they’re a little on the pricey side compared to drugstore lipsticks, you get what you pay for really! I’d recommend applying vaseline or lip primer before using this, as I own a couple of shades from this range and they show all of the dead skin on your lips…which is definitely not a good look! So I recommend prepping your lips to avoid this. I’m wearing Cafe au Chic in the picture below.

You can purchase Cafe au Chic directly from Mac here.
