beauties, signature lips aren't so much a 2012 resolution as an ongoing life goal of mine, even before every j crew model sported a bold lip. my inner monologue states: must have awesome lips. matte lipsticks are especially useful in creating an intense, finished look. because of this obsession, NYX cosmetics matte lipstick is my new favorite thing to hoard.
my favorite thing about this product is that it comes in all of my favorite colors (see below). if i were to create a matte lipstick, these are the shades i would make (so i guess i don't have to)! my current absolute favorites are hippie chic, nude, and whipped caviar. each makes their own statement.
word of caution - because they are super matte, they show any lip imperfections, so be sure to exfoliate lips before using.
