Want to take your matte lipstick to the next level? Meet blurred matte lipstick, which offers everything we love about a matte lip color — the cool matte finish and comfortable wear, for starters — with a softer, more effortless look. Whether you’re hesitant to use traditional matte lipsticks because they’re too intense or on the hunt for a new lip colors, the look of blurred lipstick just might do the trick.
What’s Blurred Lipstick?
Inspired by Korean beauty trends in lip color, like lip stains and “popsicle lips”, blurred lipstick is like the more casual sister to your usual matte lipstick. Blurred lipstick has a softer, more romantic look created with blurred lines and a lightweight texture — as opposed to the bold pigment and powdery finish of traditional matte lipstick. Instead of carefully filling in lips, you can simply swipe on your lipstick for the desired effect. It’s as effortless as lip color gets, so much so that you don’t even need a mirror to apply it.
Meet L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte Matte Lipstick
The L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte Matte Lipstick, the latest addition to the L’Absolu Rouge family, makes the blurred lipstick effect especially easy to create. It features softer pigments, bold color and a lightweight, barely-there feel. Infused with hyaluronic acid, rose extracts and Pro-Xylane™, this lipstick leaves lips feeling moisturized and also offers a comfortable wear.
How to Choose our Best Matte Lipstick for You
There are a few key differences between L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte and L’Absolue Rouge Drama Matte. L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte Lipstick is our best matte lipstick if you’re aiming to make a bold, dramatic statement. It requires a little more attention to detail during application — a mirror is definitely recommended, as is lip liner, especially if you want precise definition. It leaves a powdery finish and is very much a long-lasting lipstick.
L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte Matte Lipstick, on the other hand, is a little more forgiving in both application and wear. It’s softly pigmented and feels more creamy than powdery, which allows it to easily glide onto lips. It’s our best matte lipstick for anyone who wants to try out the blurred lipstick look. The more imperfect it is, the better it looks. Not only is a mirror unnecessary, but you can use your fingers to blend, blur, and redefine the color for a soft-focus finish.
How to create a perfectly undone, blurred matte lipstick look:
- Apply softly to the center of your lips
- Use your finger to gently smudge the lip color out to the edges, thus ‘blurring your lips.'
And with twelve lipstick shades, the only hard part is choosing among the vibrant lip colors for your favorite. The final result is the epitome of effortless French chic.
