When it comes to lipstick, I don’t know about you, but I am sublimely picky. I always make an effort to do my research and think of all of the qualities that make an outstanding cosmetic. Whether Summer, Fall, Winter, or Spring matte pink lipstick is the “it” thing. Pink represents a likeability factor that defines femininity and defies sex appeal. Matte always appears natural and can be enhanced with your favorite lip gloss. After trying numerous matte pink lipsticks from an array of different brands, I have narrowed it down to only the best.
Mac Cosmetics is known for their intrepid use of color, but what you don’t realize is this vibrant, yet electrifying brand possesses some of the best matte pink lipsticks in the beauty business. Their lip products (especially their lipsticks) are fairly pigmented and allow to build color, making them highly worth purchasing. I love their lipsticks also because they are long-lasting and very moisturizing, which makes the application that much easier. Plus, for only $14.50, these lipsticks produce a wonderful upshot.
One of my favorite matte pink lipsticks by Mac Cosmetics is definitely “Please Me” which is a subdued rosy tinted pink. I like to wear this shade when I do a dark smoky eye. Another one of my favorite matte pink lipsticks from this world renowned brand is without a doubt “Kinda Sexy” which is an indistinct pink rose. I find that this shade looks it’s best with natural makeup versus dramatic. Another matte pink lipstick is “Pink Plaid” which is more on the cool side and it is more of your pinkish blue matte. I find that this shade looks best with women that have more of a pink skin undertone, rather than warm. You can purchase these matte pink lipsticks from your nearest Mac Counter or from their official website.
Internationally known boutiques selling only beauty items have never really been recognized until now. One of the best and well known beauty boutiques in the world today is definitely Sephora. Sephora has so many products including a lot from their own individual line. I like Sephora because they are remotely affordable, but also high end at the same time. One of my favorite products is definitely the Maniac Mat Long Wearing Matte Lipsticks which sell for just $12. Matte pink has become more prevalent in modern beauty culture, representing an array of makeup looks. Whether “Mat 01” which is a bright pink matte that is great for Summer and Spring or “Mat 02” which is a natural pink matte that looks great for everyday makeup wearers or “Mat 03” which is a warm rose matte that is excellent for women with fair skin or “Mat 05” which is a pink brown matte that looks best for women of color or “Mat 08” which is a deep rose matte that is excellent for just about any skin tone, you just cannot go wrong with Sephora’s lipsticks. I love Sephora!
Bobbi Brown got her start as a world distinguished makeup artist. She discovered her niche, when she realized what women really wanted out of products. After using an array of different brands on various people, she decided to start her own cosmetic line. She is known for having some of the best eye products in the world, however; what people have yet to discover is this woman has created some fascinating lip products, including a wide-range, variety of lip colors. Available at the nearest Bobbi Brown makeup counter or the official website, Bobbi Brown definitely possesses some of the best lipsticks in the world today and they are only $22.
In fact, one of my favorite lipsticks is by Bobbi Brown and it is called “Blondie Pink” which is a light pink matte. This shade is quite ravishing with dramatic makeup, however; looks great with just about any makeup look. It is also formulated with only the finest ingredients and the application is rather simple. Another matte pink lipstick is “Blush” which is a natural, yet neutral nude pink matte. I like this lipstick because it goes well with any skin tone and is great with any makeup look. Other matte pink lipsticks by Bobbi Brown include: Pale Pink, Sandwash Tulle, and Pink. Pale Pink is simply a real light matte pink. This shade is excellent when applied with a dark smoky eye and then finished with your favorite gloss. Sandwash Tulle is more of a deep rose pink matte that is great paired with a more natural or neutral makeup application and is great with women who have more of a cool skin tone rather than warm. Pink is more of a bright soft pink matte and this lipstick looks best during the Summer and Spring months.
One thing to appreciate about Dior is their use of ingredients and how effective they are in delivering some of the optimum results. When people say that one pays for the brand name, it’s always you get what you pay for. Some of the most affordable products may work well, but they will never deliver results like a product that uses some of the finest cosmetic manufacturing on the planet. Available at Sephora, Dior is evidently one of those brands that does this, hence why their products have been of such high quality. One of my favorite lipsticks by Dior is definitely the Rouge lipstick in “365 VIP Pink” which is a bright pink matte. This shade looks amazing with a dramatic makeup look, but also great with darker skin tones. If you are looking for a great lip product, you just cannot go wrong with Dior.
Make Up For Ever or often identified to those acronym lovers as “MUFE” has really come a long way in the beauty industry. I remember hearing about this brand while watching the home shopping network and thinking about how intriguing their product line was. Available at Sephora for under $20, you can purchase one of the best matte pink lipsticks ever called “Warm Brown 505” which is a nice warm matte rose brown. This product looks phenomenal on women of color, however; works great for fair women that have more of a warm skin tone rather than cool. If you are looking for a great makeup product, Make Up For Ever has it.
Illamasqua is a brand that is making many waves, as they are relatively new in the beauty industry. I first discovered their products when shopping at Sephora and I must say that I was relatively impressed by their daring use of color, but also how well their product delivery was. Their lipsticks are extremely long-lasting. I also love the fact that they produce a lot of color without remaining sticky and chappy. One of my favorite lipsticks that I tend to use often is definitely “Fable” which is a bubble gum pink matte. Whether with natural makeup or dramatic makeup, I find that this color works best with any. Some of their color matte pink lipsticks include: Corrupt, Test, Obey, and Scandal. Test is definitely a natural pink shade that works great with any makeup and can be worn at any time. Corrupt is by far the most dramatic, as it is a matte hot pink. Obey is a coral pink which looks best with darker skin tones. Scandal is a warm pink that looks it’s best with natural makeup. For $22, Illamasqua clearly demonstrates why they produce some of the best lipsticks, including matte pink lipsticks in the world today.
NARS is definitely one of the most experimental, yet exciting makeup brands in the world today. What I love most about their products is that they are radically creative, making their concepts incredibly refreshing to the beauty industry. Although they are known for blushes and lip glosses, what you don’t know is that their lipsticks are just as impressive. In fact, one of my favorite matte pink lipsticks is by NARS and it is called “Schiap” which is a shocking pink matte. I love to wear this color in the Summer and Spring, however; it works all year round and clearly demonstrates why it works amazingly with just about any skin tone. You can purchase NARS at your nearest NARS counter, at Sephora, or on their official website. Although NARS lipsticks are $24, if you are looking for a lip product that produces upstanding quality, you cannot go wrong with NARS.
Foreign makeup brands continue to establish why they are some of the finest beauty brands in the world today. Shu Umeura has created some of the most superb products across the globe. Although Shu Umeura is well known for having the best eye lash curler, what you don’t know is they also have great lip products including matte pink lipsticks. In fact, one of my favorites is the Shu Umeura Crème Matte Lipstick in “Baby Pink 320 M” which is a intense soft pink. I love this shade because it goes great with a dark smoky eye, but also looks amazing when I just want to wear my makeup natural. When I want to draw attention to my eyes, this matte shade just makes them stand out more. Another great shade is “Pink Beige 318 M” which is a subtle warm pink. I find that this lipstick shade looks best with any skin tone. For only $23 at Sephora, you just cannot go wrong with Shu Umeura Crème Matte Lipstick.
Tarte is a brand that has revolutionized the organics of cosmetics. The best thing to love about Tarte’s products are the fact that they are free of parabens, which makes them remotely scientifically safe to the vast majority of makeup users. Their products deliver great results both naturally and biologically. Available at Sephora, Tarte products have become a normality to women who are looking for a product that delivers purely. One of my favorite matte pink lip products by Tarte is definitely “Lucky” which is a light pink matte. This color is great for every season and looks best when paired with a dramatic smoky eye. Another favorite is definitely “Lively” which is a hot pink matte. This shade is great with any makeup application, but definitely looks it’s best during the Summer season. Another great matte pink lip product is definitely “Hope” which is more of your natural warm rose pink and is great for during the day.

I discovered this underrated beauty brand when shopping at Sephora. One of my favorite products by Shiseido is definitely the Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte lip color. At just $25, this lipstick clearly delivers effective qualities (long-lasting, color building, smear proof, fade proof, etc) that are always included in a good lip product. One of my favorite shades is definitely “PK224 Sugarbabe” which is a dazzling nude pink. I absolutely love this shade and wear it often, whether with striking makeup or artless makeup.

Available at Sephora, this lip shade goes great with all skin tones, but looks best during the Summer season.
Matte Pink has become more accepted by society, as it looks great with just about any makeup look. Whether you want to be daring and dramatic or cute and subtle, matte pink looks great with just about anything. Whether you are wearing that sexy little black dress you bought from Bebe or that pale yellow Rampage business suit, matte pink will still look great.
