My favourite matte lipstick

2 shades of my favourite matte lipstick

I fell in love with matte lipsticks. I’ve been looking for a good one for a long time and I almost gave up because my lips have always been very dry when I had a matte lipstick on. I’ve found this one by pure luck and I loved it from day number 1. Today I want to share with you my two favourite shades.

You can read my conclusion about these lipsticks at the end of this post. Read on to find out what else, apart from the shades, I absolutely love about these lipsticks.

Matte lipstick which has stolen my heart

The Only One Matte Lipstick by Rimmel – High Flyer (610) – this is my lipstick number one! The first matte lipstick which doesn’t give me that unpleasant feeling of dry lips. Besides, no matter what I’m wearing, whether it’s for my office work or a meeting with my friends, this shade matches both classy and casual style. It’s delicate but at the same time it accentuates my lips giving them a little bit of colour. And it stays on for a very long time! If you’re not feeling comfortable wearing dark lipstick, this is the one to go for. I love it so much that I just bought the second one in the same shade because I’ve just finished the first one.

Bold and sexy

The Only One Matte Lipstick by Rimmel – Take The Stage (500) – is a classical juicy red lipstick which will give your lips nice matte look and will stay on for a very looooong time! Seriously! These Rimmel lipstics are not only very comfortable to wear but also rather difficult to get rid of your lips (which is a good thing! lol). I still had some in the morning the day after taking those photos! The fact that I’ve used a lip liner (Exaggerate – Red Diva) might have perpetuated the effect though.

“Nothing says confidence and glamour like a classic red lip” – Bobby Brown

I couldn’t agree with these words more. Nowadays I’m only wearing red for a special occasion, but I think I feel confident enough to start wearing it more often. Although… my daughter couldn’t get used to my new look and said that my lips were too red and I should wipe the lipstick off ! hmm… I still need to consider that…

What I love in those lipsticks:

  • very creamy and easy to wear
  • long lasting
  • they don’t dry out your lips
  • they don’t feather around your lips
  • very light fragrance which you instantly stop noticing
  • they have no significant taste
  • reasonable price
  • I love the selection of shades

    Love those shades. Have to try them. I was never into red lipsticks, but as I see maybe…

      If you’re not into red, perhaps in the other shade you would feel more comfortable. However this lipstick is so easy to wear that I’m sure you’d quickly forget that you have it on πŸ™‚

    You look absolutely fabulous. Red was just never something I could pull off…you do it seamlessly.

      Thank you, that’s very nice :* I’d say the lip liner is the key. If you use it first, then you don’t have to worry that your lipstick might not be applied evenly. And those two colours seem to match each other perfectly.

    Rimmel is a great brand. Totally love the color on you. I’m a darker shade though. Being Indian. Do you have suggestions for me ?

      Thank you for your comment. I’m not sure what shades you like but if we’re talking “red” I think you could try the one I’m describing here: “Take The Stage” OR “Call the Shots” (120) would also look really nice on a darker complexion. It’s a little bit lighter red than the one I’m wearing in the photos here. But to be honest, I think you just need to try it and see in which shade you feel most comfortable.

    Thank you for the tips! I love matte lipstick and eyeshadow for my daily wear. The red, maybe I’d save for a special occasion or when I’m feeling like I need a pick-me-up πŸ˜‰

    Those look great on you and smooth. I feel like red is the only color that suites me. And sometimes a dark purple.

    I like matte lipstick as long as it doesn’t dry out my lips. Those colors look really pretty and natural on you.

      This is it exactly. I really hate that too and I’ve been trying to find a moisturising matte lipstick for a long time. And I’m so glad I’ve finally found this one! I love it that this lipstick doesn’t give me that awful skin tightening feeling after a while. I can wear it all day not even remembering I have it on. Love it!

    I’ve been on the hunt for a lipstick. I’ve been using the same lip gloss since I was a teen, and it feels like time to move on to a more polished look. I like how matte lipstick achieves that. It’s just a matter of finding the right shade now. Thanks for sharing these!
