For a statement-pout matte lips are undeniably your best bet. The shine-free, flat-pigmented craze hit the runways last season and has been every fashionista’s obsession since. It’s no wonder that internet sensation Kylie Jenner launched her own range of Matte Lip Kits. What’s more amazing was that every product went out of stock within seconds, a minute to be precise!
Now, if you weren’t one of the first few to snag those shades, stay calm, we’ve got our own rival reveal! The Faces Ultime Pro Creme Lip Crayon range. Confused? The Canadian brand, Faces, recently introduced another gloss-free collection. Thinner than a chubby stick available in ten gorgeous hues, all your colour cravings end here. Read on for a review of each tint.
