Style Pop - Season 1

As a group, it goes without saying women have really embraced lip gloss. From lip plumping to moisturizing varieties and everything in between, a shiny lip is a happy lip. But The Real’s Jeannie Mai suggests we break out of our comfort zone and go matte…or at least try it.

“I would have to say one thing women can’t find comfortable for whatever reason is matte lips,” she says. “I think it’s quite modern looking when I see a girl rocking a non-glossy lip—you can tell she’s ahead of her fashion game. If women can cut the gloss for a second and try a matte lip I think that’s really, really different.”


Which matte lip colors should you try, you ask? Here at OK! we love NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Tonkin, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ Lip Tar in Pretty Boy and Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick.
