Obsession: Attack of The Matte

No, this is not about Calvin Klein's infamous fragrance! My apologies for slightly misleading you in the title of today's post, however I could not resist telling you about one item that I'm a little obsessed with. Perhaps, I am so very late to the "matte" lipstick wearing party. I don't know what has been going on, but I hardly ever wear or buy matte lip colours. My matte acquiring days had truly fallen by the wayside.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you likely saw my current favourite ... "rich red" by e.l.f. Cosmetics (Eyes Lips Face) making an appearance (see it again here). I've only tried a few of their products in the past and I'm so happy that I picked up this colour.

An early night out with the girls it was, and I managed to swiftly pack this matte stick in my studded clutch. My friends were laughing hysterically because it seemed that I could not upload fast enough! What's a blogger to do? Ahem, I was on two smartphones that night one for work, and the other for fashionista uploads, but let's focus on the red, shall we?

This was surely a quick buy and easy solution to my must have colour always in my ensemble. What I wore that night really didn't matter (although it was quite casual with jewellery to the nth degree), because the rich red told it all!

This is not a sponsored post nor am I an e.l.f. cosmetics ambassador (although, I wouldn't mind at all). I am merely telling you that I finally found another great red, not just any red, but probably my first matte red colour that didn't cost me a small fortune. If you have your usual beauty favourites, then you entirely understand what I'm speaking of ladies.

Right ... well, that's really all I have to say! Ahh, it really is the little things that can bring a fashionista happiness, and a freshen up on make-up always helps.

Here's an outfit that I styled for another evening out, post-rich red celebrating.

What are some of your favourite beauty colours, products, or new collections at the moment?

    Hi Madison. Auch ich mag sehr gerne roten Lippenstift. Einmal natürlich das klassische Rot, doch jetzt für den Winter werde ich mir einen weinroten Lippenstift zulegen.
    Dein Outfit mag ich, der Hut steht dir ganz entzückend.

  21. I'm always looking for new and different reds - normally I don't jump on the trend bandwagon but when matte reds came long, I dove right in. I just couldn't resist. I'm glad the trend has continued; these days I find that I actually prefer a matte lip to one that is overly shimmery. This shade suits you perfectly and it gives a lovely pop against your black and denim ensemble :)
