Some things in life are best shiny: hair, cars, diamonds… but when it comes to lipstick, matte is having a moment right now. There are a few tricks to wearing it well, though. First get your lips well moisturised and free of any flakes, wear your matte lipstick with a liner if you’re picking a bold shade, and don’t apply loads of layers. Once you’ve mastered the look, you’ll be a total convert. So take your pick from our top 10 matte lippies that’ll give you change from a tenner.
