It seems that every year, as winter rolls around, the beauty companies’ thoughts turn to matte lipsticks. This autumn, Estée Lauder has unveiled a new collection of matte lipsticks, designed in collaboration with Lauder spokesperson and supermodel Joan Smalls, who hand-picked the 12 beautiful shades and the intensely matte finish.
The Pure Color Envy Matte Lipsticks (£25 each) come in bold, highly-pigmented colours, and leave the lips heavily stained in just one swipe. These are not for the faint-hearted but if you’re ready to up your beauty game to celebrate the new season, look no further! Be warned, though: as with most matte lipsticks, these are not ideal for those of us prone to dry lips .. Watch out for a round-up of the best mattes coming soon to this blog!
