Matte lipsticks can be awfully drying but thankfully, I haven't come across any to date. I hear my friends and magazine editors talk about applying a gorgeous matte lip color only to experience dry and flaky lips. They key I'd say is to do your research well and look into reliable brands that have established themselves within the beauty industry.
Almost every brand today has jumped on the matte lip color bandwagon and it's quite a delight to see the different and unique colors they concoct. I have my favorites and that list just grew with the addition of Arcancil Paris' latest, the new liquid matte lipsticks, Mat Hysteria.
