You have always loved that glossy pink lipstick you had. But summers are here and while people are sweating around, you need something that will not look all shiny and pasty on your lips. This is where matte lipsticks come in. Matte lipsticks are those which will not give you a shiny finish. They are dull but do look elegant and classy. But often matte lipsticks are a little tricky. They may turn a little chalky and their texture becomes so transparent that you can actually see the imperfections on the lip.

That is why you have to be really careful when you are buying matte lipsticks. It is always better to invest in some good quality matte lipstick and those which promise long staying powers. Since a wax lipstick has more wax than shiny pigments, it gives a drier finish to the look. So, whenever you are buying matte lipsticks, make sure you go for something which has more moisturizing power.
