The liquid lipstick trend came into our lives with full force and unlike other beauty trends, this one doesn’t seem to have an expiration date coming up any time soon. If you spend any time at all on Instagram, Pinterest and Snapchat, you’ll be inundated with close-up photos of perfect matte lips and it should come as no surprise that this trend has become the unofficial go-to lip of the year. It’s a trend that has consistently shown up on the runways and has been popularized by some of social media’s biggest makeup artists, bloggers and social media influencers. It’s become such a hot beauty trend that makeup artists and influencers have branched out with their own cosmetic line of liquid lipsticks. (We're looking at you, Kylie...)
A matte lip adds an immediate touch of sophistication and maturity like no other lip look does. It’s bold, empowering and makes a stand-alone fashion statement. While we love wearing liquid lipstick year-round, there’s a reason why we can’t stay away from this trend during the fall and winter months. On the drabbest of days, a bold lip can be the pick-me-up you need, minus the worry of your lip color feathering and sticking to your hair in windy weather. It’s also the perfect lip for holiday parties because of its long-lasting ability.
