Ten-hut! 14 of 22 lipsticks in the upcoming MAC The Matte Lip collection ($16 each, coming to the MAC website starting may 28, as well as to MAC stores as well as counters June 11)
Many of the matte lipsticks in the new MAC The Matte Lip collection are new, however daaaaaang! — a few of the shades sure do look like they jumped out of my hot tub time machine circa 1994.
Like dark brown Antique Velvet? I’m quite sure I used something just like it…to every Friday night home celebration I ever went to.
And just in situation you’re wondering…yes, I was that person at the celebration who was standing uncomfortably in the corner as well as nursing the exact same bottle of Zima the entire evening. #datingmyself
All of the $16 lipsticks in the new 22-piece MAC The Matte Lip collection are matte (obvs), with about half of them having MAC’s Matte finish, as well as the other half their vintage Matte finish, however they aren’t all new. A handful of them are currently offered in the long-term line as well as are being re-promoted right here with the introduce (like Ruby Woo, All terminated Up, flat Out Fabulous, velvet Teddy, Kinda Sexy, Please Me, Heroine as well as Pink Pigeon).
But most of the 22 shades are new, which is extremely exciting! Also, technically, this isn’t a MAC collection in the traditional restricted edition sense, as all of the colors are either in the long-term line now, or being added to it.

You may still see some familiar names among the batch of new colors as well, though, like Whirl as well as Stone. Both are currently in MAC’s Lip Pencil line, so if you’re a fan of either one, voila! now there are matching matte lipstick shades.
The MAC Mattes vs. the vintage Mattes
Both of the matte completes represented in the collection are flat, meaning that they radiate extremely little, or not at all, on the lips, however the completes aren’t the same. The vintage Mattes are more intensely matte than their routine Matte counterparts — extremely flat — as well as they’re almost like using a matte lip pencil.
I believe the vintage Mattes likewise feels drier as well as thinner than the routine Mattes do, which feel a bit “wet” as well as dense/thick to me.
ओह! — as well as when I wear the vintage Mattes, I feel like my vertical lip lines are front as well as center, more so than when I wear the routine Mattes.
As for the colors themselves, what if you decline to accept your inner ’90s brown lipstick-loving babe? Does that mean you absolutely won’t such as this collection?
No, not necessarily… You don’t have to look like you lived as well as liked in the age that provided birth to floral spaghetti-strap gowns as well as infant tees to discover something to like in MAC The Matte Lip. In addition to the old-school shades, the release likewise includes some extremely fashion-forward colors, like deep royal blue Matte Royal, in addition to some wonderful pinks like Please Me, as well as a number of bold, brash brights like purple Heroine as well as bluish red Ruby Woo.
Here are pics as well as swatches of 14 of the 22 shades…

It’s all about dat prep life
Yeah…both of these matte completes can be a bit difficult to wear since they like to draw interest to every bit flake, crack, vertical lip line as well as imperfection.
At least that’s the situation for me as well as my textured (code word for “flaky”) lips, so I believe it definitely assists to lay the groundwork the night before by exfoliating, as well as then packing up on lip balm before bed.
Then, very first thing in the morning after you laundry your face, slather even more lip balm on your lips…and drink 10 gallons of water.
OK, perhaps not 10 gallons. That would be as well much.
But do drink some additional water. I understand it seems crazy, however I swear that it assists cut down on the flakes.
When I do both of these things either on a regular basis or at least the night before, these mattes are easier to pull off, as well as my lips look as well as feel smoother.
Drink lots of water, overdo it with balm, as well as when you wear these mattes, you’ll be rewarded with gorgeous lips as well as a killer wear time, since since these aren’t as creamy as other finishes, they last. Seriously, I can eat meals — MEALS, plural — with these mattes on my lips, as well as they will not budge. I’m speaking six or seven hours, easily.

I’d state go for one of the routine Mattes if you want something more comfortable as well as easier to wear.

Hey, shorty, it’s yo’ birthday!
Obviously, this is my dream birthday cake. via Byrdie woman custom Cakes
My birthday is right around the corner now (June 9), as well as I’m still feeling type of funny about it…
Not funny “ha-ha” but, well…more like “funny since I’m not sure what to make of it.” I have mixed feelings.
I mean, I’m happy to be making it to 40 at all, since some people don’t, as well as part of me wishes to do it up! — however then one more part of me just wishes to crawl under the covers as well as hide.
I’m sure the day will come as well as go, as well as whatever will be fine, however I feel like there’s a great deal of weight connected to 40.
Hmm… I’m most likely overthinking it.
