We’ve been obsessing over matte lip color for years.  Our personal favorite for fall is either a really natural, pinky nude color, or a super vamp dark burgundy hue.  The key to making this look work is EXFOLIATING.   Seriously, forget about using a matte color if you aren’t committing to this step. You want your lips to be smooth and moist. Not only does it help your color last longer,  but if you skip this step you’ll most likely end up with dried, tinted flakes on your lips (not cute, and looks really gross).  My bottom is always dry for some reason, but I really like Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub by Bliss, ($18 at Sephora) it makes them super hydrated and flake-free.  If you’re going for a really dark color I recommend lining your lips to make sure you get a really defined edge. So seduce away. Seduction isn’t making someone do what they don’t want to do… Seduction is enticing someone into doing what they secretly already want to do!

Our two favorite brands for matte lip color are NYX, because they are SO inexpensive, and NARS because the colors are just to die for.
