The Matte Lip & Dewy Skin Craze Continued

Wednesday, 1 March 2017

matte lip, dewy skin, makeup, beauty, forever september, forever september blog, blogger,

Last year, the world went mad for a matte lip and dewy skin and I guess I'm still not over it just yet.

Every makeup brand under the sun decided to bring out a matte liquid lipstick last year, but I'm not complaining. I never used to wear lipstick, as I found it annoying and never got on with most consistency's. But liquid lipsticks are something else, they're brilliant. Stay put all day long, and the colour pay off is always amazing! As for the dewy skin craze, well I still love that as well. Gone are the days when a caked up matte face was what I aimed for, but now its a nice fresh base. Dewy foundations, highlight and natural blush is where its at nowadays.

Last week was London fashion week (as I'm sure everyone has seen by now), and I believe Paris fashion week is this week. By the looks of it, the matte lip and dewy skin trend are still very apparent, which is great. Just My Look are an British online beauty retailer, which I was lucky enough to try some products from. They sell such good brands, like Milani (we all know how much of a struggle that was to get in the UK), Sleek, O.P.I and more.

Sooo, lets go with the two matte liquid lipsticks that I got first. As I said before, I'm totally obsessed with liquid lipstick at the moment, its all I'll wear. The first one I opted for was the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream in Adorable*. I've never tried a Milani product before but I was so drawn in by these. I went for a nice nude colour, because thats all I ever seem to wear. The first thing I noticed when I opened this was the scent. A very strong vanilla/sweet scent, although I'm not complaining because it smells good enough to eat. The colour pay off is great, and this seems to be really pigmented. Its a gorgeous yet basic nude thats perfect for everyday. Its also really long wearing and isn't drying at all - bonus! The second liquid lip I picked up was the Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Shabby Chic*. I'd heard a lot about these when they first launched and I wasn't sure about them. First impressions being the packaging looks very cheap, especially the choice of font, but thats just my opinion. Anyway, I shouldn't have been so quick to judge. This is one of the best liquid lipsticks I've tried. Its a beautiful dark/dusky rose shade thats great for everyday wear again. It dries down really quickly, and is very pigmented. Safe to say I'm very impressed with this.

Now onto that dewy skin. A product I was instantly drawn to was the L.A Girl Pro Conceal HD High Definition Concealer*. Another product I seem to remember was hard to get in the UK for a long time, but they actually have so many products available, if you want to take a look, here. This is a great concealer for coverage, yet it brightens under the eyes without making it look cakey. A lot of the time I just use concealer on its own, which really gives you a fresh base and looks very natural. You can really achieve that with this, and its ridiculously affordable! Lastly, another Milani product because I simply couldn't resist. The Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso*. How many times have you seen this product mentioned?! I'm sure it was a cult classic a few years back now, and I've finally gotten round to testing it out. This gives such a pretty glow to your cheeks, and actually makes me look quite healthy. Not only is it a blush, but it seems to have tiny flecks of sparkle in, so it really brightens your complexion at the same time; helping you achieve that dewy finish!

Have you ever tried any of these products?

  1. I loved the LA Girl Pro Conceal when I tried it but unfortunately the lightest shade is still a little bit too dark for me. I was so disappointed as I loved the formula. x
