Visiting MAC Cosmetics Summer 2015 Matte Lipsticks

The matte craze is everywhere these days and while MAC has of course had matte lipsticks in their collection for some time, they just put out some new ones for summer.

The Matte LipFor those who prefer timeless glamour rather than all-out flash, the sophisticated allure of matte reigns supreme. Now, MAC expands its offering of this classic suede-like finish with 12 new shades of Matte and Retro Matte Lipstick. These lipsticks promise a pop of colour that will linger on your lips with impressive staying power.



Here are the colors I tried from The Matte Lip Collection for Summer 2015:

Matte Royal
(deep blue)

Velvet Teddy

Kinda Sexy 
(neutral pink rose)

Antique Velvet
(intense brown w/maroon undertones)

Flat Out Fabulous
(bright plum)

My take: while these are in not the matte-est matte lippies I’ve ever tried (liquid lipsticks take the cake for that along with the title of longest-wearing), I have to keep in mind that they are lipsticks so of course they are not going to have the same texture or “dry down” as those. They do give a matte finish for sure and while the liquid ones are a big favorite, a few of these might be a good option when I don’t want to make the time commitment that the liquid ones require. Hmmm...
