Question of the Week: Are you on board with the current matte lip trend? If so, which products are you loving lately? If not, what other finish do you prefer?
I am actually a huge fan of the matte lip trend. I have actually been a HUGE fan of matte lipstick since way before matte lips were actually trending. I think the thing that always attracted me to matte lipsticks is that it makes for a perfect base. If you want plain, flat, matte lips then you are already there but by adding a touch of gloss or sparkle the entire look can be transformed. But the plain matte finish is the way I usually rock it.
I actually have a review up for the Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipsticks and I think they could be my favorite line. Inexpensive and a large variety of shades, just the way I like it.
