To say that we are obsessed with matte lipsticks will be an understatement! Honestly, we doubt it will ever go out of style—well, not in this decade, at the very least. A major concern though is how to keep our puckers not looking like we slabbed on cement to it. No matter how stylish your outfit is, at the end of the day, a cracked set of kissers will ruin it for you. Luckily, Maybelline New York has the perfect solution! Its Powder Matte Collection has an ultra powdery matte stick technology that provides a silky smooth matte finish. It’s highly pigmented, super lightweight, and does not leave an uncomfortable, drying feeling. Oh, and the best part? It has not just one, not even two, but 15 different shades to match all your OOTDs!
A nude lippie is every girl’s best friend. It’s something that you can take from night to day and from work to play. Maybelline’s Powder Matte Collection has four different shades of nude for your every need—Touch of Nude for your off-duty look; Make Me Bliss for your #girlboss office attire; Nude Illusion for your travel OOTDs; and Barely There for a romantic evening with your beau! Need some stylish examples? Then take your cue from model-of-the-moment and the new Maybelline girl Kelsey Merritt.
What better way to up the ante and make a statement than with bold and bright reds? A matte crimson pout will be the perfect cherry on top of your double tap-worthy OOTDs! For a summer-ready look, a warm, orange-based red like Maybelline’s Powder Matte lippie in Red-dy Red will highlight the sunkissed glow of a morena beauty, while a cool hue like the blue-based Noir Red will complement a mestiza’s radiant skin. Also imagine sweeping your date off his feet with your sexy cut-out dress and kissable lips after swiping on some Cherry Chic. If you want something vampy, put on a pair of stilettos and go all the way with Get Red-dy, or create more drama with a sexy velvet frock and a berry-hued lippie a la Plum Perfection.
Some days, we just want to give in to our feminine side and simply enjoy the perks of being a girl by wearing all things lady-like. There are way too many cute outfits to choose from, but thankfully, there are six different shades of pink in Maybelline’s Powder Matte Collection. Be in on the Pale Dogwood trend (it’s the real color of the year, tbh!) and complete your “millennial” look with a swipe of Mauve It Up, or channel Elle Woods and opt for Up To Date for an OOTD reminiscent of a scene from Legally Blonde. But if Barbie is your spirit animal, we dare you to raise the pink bar higher and go for Fuchsia Flash. Meanwhile, Technically Pink would look totally adorable with your favorite floral dress; Pink Potion is the obvious choice if you’re in for the thrill of wearing a flirty skirt; and Pink Shot, well, it’s the mother of all pinks—you can’t possibly go wrong with it!
Maybelline New York’s The Powder Mattes are available for only P199 each (from P299) in Maybelline counters nationwide from March 1 to March 31, 2017. You can also get them online from LAZADA.
