Best Matt Lipstick Shades from 10 Best Brands to Wear This Summer

Click Here

Apart from diamonds, lipsticks are also a girl’s best friend. Which girl does not like to paint her lips and get the attention? If we talk about the lippies, there are a number of types – long wear, glossy, matte, and many more! But I have always been a fan of matte lippies. They are simply perfect at the college, office, matinee, lunch or a friend’s birthday. They are extremely subtle yet catchy. Another benefit, matte lipsticks stay long unlike the glossy ones that smudge easily. And why boys would love it? They will love coz it is less transferable.

1. MAC Summer 2013 Lipstick Shades


The shades are:

  • Embrace me: fuchsia pink
  • Heroine: violet purple
  • Silly: baby pink
  • Ablaze: bold apricot

The collection is stunning! Vibrant and bright for the summer!  Each lip pencil is smooth and glides easily while applying. However, you may feel the lip colour dries after sometime; hence apply a lip balm before the duration of 5 min, to avoid dryness.

Price: Rs. 990

I would rate 9.5 / 10 for its quality.

2. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks


The shades are:


Amongst all the shades, my favourite is obsessed orange. If you heart orange, wear this with confidence. The texture glides easily, and its non- drying formula makes it a must buy. It is creamy and settles down smoothly over the lips. A must try for all the gals and ladies, who are a fan of bright shades.


I would rate 9/10.

Price: Rs 250
