have been around long enough to kick the ‘just a fad’ status to the curb and become a firm beauty favorite. If you haven’t tried this bold, statement-making texture, now is the time—it’s smooth, moisturizing, longlasting and addictive. It looks like a powder shadow, but this powdery lip pen by L’oréal turns into a smooth, matte, creamy lip color when applied. The spongy applicator allows you to build color from light to intense (making ombré lips incredibly easy to perfect) with a pretty, stained effect. This texture is like butter, creating a matte finish that’s very comfortable on lips. One layer is enough for full coverage. When set, it’s stays flexible—so you can pout as much as you want without any cracks showing up on dry lips. Come on over to the dark side and get the kind of staying power that laughs in the face of nights out and mornings after. Look for formulas that settle into a soft, dry finish and leave a highly pigmented stain.
Intense reds and deep, dark shades look very elegant in matte—and they’re lower-maintenance than their high-shine counterparts. Every woman needs a matte nude and a matte red in her lipstick arsenal for an undeniably chic look. JULY 2016
