MAC The Matte Lip-banner

For those who prefer timeless glamour rather than all-out flash, the sophisticated allure of matte reigns supreme. Now, M∙A∙C The Matte Lip Collection expands its offering of this classic suede-like finish with new shades of Matte and Retro Matte Lipstick. These lipsticks promise a pop of colour that will linger on your lips with impressive staying power.

To me, the queen of the chic lip will always be matte. And matte in a daring shade? Even more glam. In watching many of the recent red carpets, I’ve been struck by the trend of a dark, matte lip–regardless of the season.
