Glossy and matte are the two ends of the spectrum and there’s hardly any in-between. Everyone has their own opinion and some of us can’t stand one way or another. Personally, I really don’t dig the matte feeling (especially when speaking of lipstick).
Over time I have created quite a big makeup collection and I have acquired quite a few matte and glossy lip products. Not that it takes many of either kind of finish to determine your preference. I have surely determined that I am a gloss girl all the way! I repurchase my glosses every couple of months and I have farrr more glosses in my collection than mattes.
I do (sometimes) like three times a year, wear matte lipsticks. I find the best Matte lipsticks (from what I have tried) to be from Ofra Cosmetics. Ofra Liquid lipsticks have been my top pick because they don’t accentuate the lines in my lips nor do they rub off when eating.
The matte vs glossy debate is not just lipstick though! Nah, this goes into foundation, eyeshadow and even hair styles! Personally I love a more hydrating product on my skin- so matte is out of the question for that! I have combination skin and I love to look dewy.
However, I do love matte eye shadow! Shadows of all kinds will go on my eyes- no questions asked. I use eye shadow based on what I am wearing and what looks good together so, on the day to day I throw on a few matte shadows and go on about my business.
Overall, I prefer the glossy look. I just don’t like looking dry. My makeup base routine is full of hydrating products to make my skin look glowy (I don’t think adding highlighter is enough), and my lips love to be glossy!
What do you prefer glossy or matte???
