Mad About Mattes


Happy Monday everyone!! This past fall I fell in love with anything matte – matte blush, matte eyeshadow and especially matte lips. So today I’m sharing with you all my favorite matte themed products and why I’m Mad About Mattes!

The first avenue I tried matte products in was blushers. About a year ago in NY I picked up one of the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushers and I’ve not been able to put it down. Exposed is the classic nude blush shade for the spring time. On the skin this blusher gives you a natural flush making your skin look healthy and fresh. This has to be one of my favorite blush formula of all time now. Definitely want to pick up more shades of these blushers very soon.

Lips is the avenue where I wear mattes the most. All of the shades that I have are very similar – the Kylie Jenner/90s lip. The range of the 90s lip is pretty wide: from more of a mauve pink to more of a brown tone. At the moment the matte mauve pink has been my thing. The Maybelline Matte Lipsticks are amazing in general but especially the shade Touch Of Spice. Whenever I wear this lip color I feel like I need to be wearing a varsity jacket! If you prefer lip crayons don’t worry cause I’ve got you covered. The Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry and the Wet N’ Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color in Fashion Darling are again very similar but still amazing 90s lip colors.

When it comes to matte eyeshadows Tarte has knocked it out of the ball park. Their Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette has 3 rows each containing a highlight, lid color, crease color, and outer crease/eyeliner. This palette is perfect for throwing in your everyday makeup bag. Underneath this eyeshadow palette I love wearing the Maybeliine Color Tattoo in the shade Creamy Beige – it’s a neutral color perfect for wearing alone or works amazing as a base. Another Maybelline Color Tattoo that works beautifully for this palette Vintage Plum – it’s a deep warm plum that goes great for a purple smokey eye.

I hope you enjoyed seeing why I’m Mad About Mattes!! Leave me a comment telling me if your a matte lover or a shimmer girl all the way. Thank you so much for reading this blog post and I will talk to you soon!!
