In the spring and summer, my days always seem longer. Freed from the hibernating instincts inspired by the bitter cold of an East Coast winter, after-work drinks, dinners, and get-togethers extend my days well into evening. Somehow, my makeup needs to keep up! Using setting powder works wonders for my foundation. Lipstick, however, always seems to fade. But, I’ve just discovered a new lipstick with staying power.
MISKOS Matte Waterproof Lipstick is truly long-lasting. The no-fade colors are rich and highly pigmented, so I don’t need to reapply as frequently.
The matte finish also means they don’t bleed or feather the way slick, shiny lipsticks and lip glosses can.
And, the colors are wonderful! The Miskos Matte Lipstick comes in a comprehensive 6-pack which includes Chili, Orange, Coral, Red, Pink, and (my fave) Naked.
If you’ve never used a highly pigmented lipstick before, it’s a bit different. These lipsticks really stay put and are actually closer to lip stains than traditional lipsticks. They are drier than a creamy lipstick, so, if you need to, use a lip scrub and moisturize before applying. Also, it’s recommended that you use a moisturizer or makeup remover pad for easy removal at the end of the night.
The 6-pack of matte lipsticks retails for just $12.61 on Amazon. Like all Miskos products (I am also a huge fan of their neutral eyeshadow) these are incredibly high quality, especially for the price.
