Matte Lips: Armani, Lancome and Smashbox

I have recently posted about some new lip products: glossy ones and classy lipsticks but it seems like those uber popular matte (often liquid) lipsticks are not going anywhere. And here are the brand new releases.

Lancome Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick, £19.50 from Selfridges

“Water-in-oil-based emulsion is formulated with a patented Ultra-Thin Film technology to deliver weightless texture and a second-skin feel”. You also get a great colour pay off and a comfortable, non-drying wear. There are quite a few shades to choose from and the images Lisa Eldridge created are gorgeous.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Since we are having a Lipstick Week, it is about time to finally write a full review of my lipstick obsession  – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania.

I’ve picked it up back in the winter and already featured it a lot of times on my Instagram and in my favourites, too.

Long-time readers will know that I am a huge fan of berry and plum vampy lipsticks and I have quite  few but I’ve picked this one up not only because of the shade but also because of the name.  Long story short – Transylvania will always have a special place in my heart, although I have been there only several times.

I really, really love it. As the name suggests, it is a

Lipstick Week: PAT McGRATH LABS Lust 004 Lipstick Kit

Makeup4all will turn 8 this February but somehow I never did any themed weeks yet. But I’ve decided to give it a go, because why not?

So, I announce the Lipstick Week.

I will post about the new releases, will review some lipsticks from my collection and will feature my current favourites, along with the most popular lipstick posts in the last almost 8 years.

Each kit comes it Pat’s signature packaging with sequins and  includes two matte lipsticks, a clear vinyl gloss, a metallic gold pigment, and a microfine glitter.

You can wear the lipsticks on their own or layer the glitter/pigment/gloss for the ombre or multi-dimensional look.

The sets are:
