I love the changing of the seasons, not only do we switch our wedges for boots and tanks for sweaters but it’s also a good time to change up your makeup routine, if anything at least your lipsticks and December is the best time to do just that. With the number of holiday parties, family gatherings, (birthdays in my family), and overall special occasions it’s the perfect time to look and feel good. For me adding a pop of color to your lips changes your entire look and takes you from day to night in an instant. You may notice that I’m more of Chapstick/lip gloss wearer on the daily, but when it comes to special events, like the holiday party I have this weekend, you can bet I’ll be reaching for that perfect lipstick shade.
I recently received the full line of New Pure Color Envy Sculpting Matte shades from Estée Lauder and I’ve already tested just about every single shade out and wow these colors are ah-mazing! There are 3 different finishes; metallic matte which add a luminous dimension of a shimmer for a modern matted brushed metal finish; sheer mattes which offer a diffused mattified color infused with natural butters that nourish lips and glide on tints of sheer color; and velvet matte with smooth, intense, and bold colors that give lips a visibly fuller and defined curvaceous look. There are 10 Sheer Matte Shades, 16 Metallic Mattes, and 14 Velvet Matte colors. So you can be sure there is a color out there for you!
I recently wore the Metallic Matte shade Passion Patina for a shoot (sneak peek in the photo above) and I was obsessed with the color, how long it stayed on my lips, and the overall feel. I keep the color Deeply Moved in my everyday makeup bag for a quick touch up if I’m heading to a last minute appointment. Just a quick glide on the lips and I look presentable! LOL
Have you tried these out yet? What type would you reach for, Sheer Matte, Metallic Matte or Velvet Matte? I’d love to know! xo Vanessa
