    The Matte Lipsticks I’m Obsessed with Right Now

    As soon as the cold weather hits I am all about a matte lip. Something about the finish perfectly completes any fall/winter makeup looks in my opinion, so I’m always reaching for matte lipsticks this time of year. The matte lipsticks I’m obsessed with right now are the L’Oreal Colour Riche Ultra Matte Lipsticks*. They look great, and they’re affordable – which is always an added bonus in my books!
