Taking matte lips very seriously this season. (Matte lipstick is a Black woman's best friend. It looks great on us. )
Milani's moiste matte lipstick in Manhattan is a steal and it's the perfect every day, no fuss, matte. It doesn' even require liner. Purchase at Walgreens or http://www.milanicosmetics.com/ for $3.49. (More on Milani to come, this is one hell of a make up line. And yes, it's secretly made for women of color.)
It is the anti-gloss. It is unshear, unshiny, and un-everything we've been doing for the past ten years. The strong matte lip (think 80's supermodel) is slowly making it's comeback. Get ahead of the pack. I think MAC's Rougette available for 14.50 at http://www.mac.com/ or at any other MAC retailer is fabolah.
Perfect with a modest eye with bold eye liner (applied with liquid or brush and extended past the lash) and a liberal amount of mascara. A soft cheek, a polished brow and your fab. This color is high drama all alone. Love it . And it loves our luscious lips.
