Texture Tuesday: BOLD MATTE LIPSHi, y'all..
So I have new segment called Texture Tuesday. Will update about textures for makeup every week on Tuesday.

People are mad for matte lippies now. At first, I hate matte lips. It exaggerates dry/chapped lips, and it's not sexy at all.
BUT, I know the secret to matte lips now. Luscious smooth lips.
- Hydrate yourself by drinking water,
- creamy lipbalm before sleep,
- lipbalm every 3-4 hours/after meal, and
- exfoliate your lips using sugar or baby toothbrush 2-3 times a week.
After get rid of that flaky skin from the lips, you are good for any kind of lipstick. And smooth lips to nib for kissing too. LOL
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte in Candy Pink.
For a soft pink matte lips, this one is quite bold. Brightens up light-medium skintone instantly.
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte in Gangnam Pink[MPK 376]. This particular shade of lipstick did sold out in Asia Pacific once. So famous, I grab the last one in Seibu Grand Indonesia that time. This cool fuchsia pink is such a pretty color. I love to use this on photoshoots or clients for an evening look.
Since introduced to Shu Uemura lipstick, I've been in love. Their formula is so nice. The matte lipsticks although set into silky matte, they are not drying at all. They don't stick the upper & lower lips, last very long too. I hate the lipstick bullet, its round shape can't be resulting into neat application, gotta use lip brush.
L'Oreal Color Riche Moist Matte in Blaze of Red[R519].
I think this is a nice blue based red lipstick. Bold, but cool. Will look good on fair-light skin. I am light-medium skinned, it suits me less well. (Kelihatan judes sekali..)
L'Oreal Color Riche Moist Matte in Arabian Night[PM412].
This shade is popular among Female Daily Network family. I got it right away. LOL reddish, plum, chocolate, I say it is meant for cool skintone people. It will compliment pale-light skin nicely.
As for the lipstick, it's a hit & miss with me. Like its name, moist matte. The matte finish is still moist, so it's kinda have a sheen on top. Satin finish.
If you really want a matte lips, this is not for you. Great choice for daily wear, as it's not drying the lips, and reasonable price tag too. And the bullet is sharp & slanted, so lip brush is not necessary needed for a neat, outlined finish.
Lime Crime Velvetine in Wicked.
This reddish brick brown is perfect on my lips. HAHA. I love this color to the bone! As for velvetines, they have great colors. I think I will get all of them. But because of the price(300-375k rupiahs/item!), maybe not.
Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet.
My first velvetine, and still loving it. This red is great for every skintone, I think. Everybody looks good with this one on instagram. It's crazy, the matte finish is a real deal.
The downside is, it's not smudgeproof. And it keep getting my upper & lower lips stick together, so my center part of the lips always fade away in couple of hours.
Another downside is THE SMELL! Oh My Goodness. Freshly opened, it smells yummy like candy. Now, after 7 months, it has that stale fume. Both Wicked & Red Velvet, they are the same now. Althought I get my Wicked last 5 months. Blegh~
Because it's a liquid lipstick, I never apply it directly on lips using the dove tip applicator. I always prolong the product's life by scoop it out on a palette, and use lip brush. Even my method cannot help this one to hold its shelf life(12M). *sigh*
OK, I have to include this one.
NYX Soft Matte Lipcream in Istanbul.
I LOVE the smell of this lipcream. So sweet, yumm.. It has a satin matte finish because it's a cream. This cool pink looks really good on pale skin.
The downsides are, it slides, and really exaggerate lip lines. I thought layer it up will help. IT DOES NOT! HAHA.
Not opaque enough as a matte lipstick, for me. But the cheap price tag, and a wide range of shade to choose, it's a nice choice to splurge on if you are a lippies junkie.
That's it. I hope you enjoy my Texture Tuesday segment. Will update about this every week.
If you have any idea for makeup texture, and want me to talk about them, lemme know.
