Of course, I had to buy cosmetics to satisfy myself. Here's what I bought.
M.A.C. Prep + Prime
I realised the importance of using a lip primer when I want to use a matt lipstick. It is similar to a lip balm just that it feels more velvety and less oily. It reduces the appearance of fine lines on the lips and makes the lipstick last longer.
M.A.C. Retro Matt Lipstick in Back in Vogue
I have been using glossy lipsticks and decided to try matt lipstick since it is the craze nowadays.
I wanted a shade that is more nude but I still ended up picking peach. I am that afraid of looking pale.
I merely had the lipstick on for about 2 hours, no peeling or cracking of lips which means it works for me. Perhaps I can invest in other colours too.
