Lips; matte vs glossy πŸ’„πŸ’‹

I feel like this is very important to any beauty mad person. Lipstick, to me, finishes your makeup look. I decided to run a few polls on this! I used my instagram & my twitter to run these as I felt I might have gotten different responses from them. Have a look πŸ‘‡πŸ½

My favourite used to be glossy when I was younger & just got into wearing lipstick, but it literally changed in an instant after I tried my first ever matte lipstick. It was an mua cosmetics product. I feel like these are underrated still, give them some love because they’re fabulous, and they’re amazingly cheap. 

My range then picked up a little as I branched out trying other brands. My absolute favourite now are Gerard cosmetics, if you know me you most definitely know thatπŸ™„πŸ˜‚ so sorry guys that I run on about them. I first bought these direct from their site, the shipping was pretty fast & they usually have some good offers on as well. Pretty sure I bought 3 at a time… I did tell you all I’m addicted! 

Don’t get me wrong I do like other lipsticks. I just definitely prefer matte. I used to literally wear Avon lipsticks all the time. I still would wear them now too. It seems like my followers had a bit of a mixed review on which was their fav too. On Twitter it was pretty clear you all prefer matte, like me. But Instagram was slightly closer. 

I blooming love using pencils now aswell as lipsticks too. Does anybody else love them? Lord & berry are my favourite ones! I find that they don’t become as messy looking throughout the day. If that makes sense?! 

Who likes my collection?! πŸ™ˆ yeah I am crazy! And this is after I gave away about 10 to some friends as I never used them. What’s your favourite brand for lipsticks?

  1. I used to love glossy too and then I tried a matte and I haven’t looked back since! I love how they don’t transfer as much as glossy ones and I think the lipstick comes much more pigmented! My fave matte lipsticks are definitely NYX suede/Lingerie and Bonjours velvet liquid lipstick! Both I’d highly recommend, great post btw!! Xxx

  2. I so prefer matte ones! I loads guilty too! Have you tried then revolution ones they seem to be good so far! I tried their lipglosses and I personally don’t like the transfer or the tackiness off them! I think that’s why I prefer matte ones so much more, and when younger you wanted those β€˜glossy lips’ so everyone knew you was wearing it πŸ˜‚

  3. Matte is definitely my fave! You don’t have to worry about it traveling on your face as much! I have been trying to get more into glosses though, trying to branch out a little! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

  4. Matte Lipsticks are amazing to work with, especially the ones by NYX! But I also love lipglosses since that was my go to product when I was a teen ☺️ I think glosses are still great for a natural everyday look.

  5. omg you have the biggest collection ever!! Ive always only ever used a gloss, and recently found a really nice matte lipstick by revolution. Now I’m into the lip plumping lipgloss, slight tingle but some great colours too.

  6. I like creamy satin finish lipsticks. Although their staying power is low, but they are comfortable to wear and do not make lips flaky and dryπŸ™‚πŸ™‚
