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!

    If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while now, you’ll know I love Clarisonic brushes! Nothing cleanses my skin better and I’ve been a huge fan for years now.
