Whatever happened to the matte finish. When I started blogging, everyone was matte-fying everything. And now..... bupkis.
Never let it be said that I'm ever ahead of a trend, so here's another matte lacquer. This time, it is BYS' Matte Deep Purple.
Now, here's the deal. I don't normally like creme mattes. I think, in order for a matte to work, it has to have some depth in it. A shimmer. A different undertone. Something.
This doesn't have any of that depth but it still works a treat. I think it's the finish. It's a satin matte which makes it not so harsh and is more forgiving of the large block of colour.
Of course, I couldn't do a matte without applying a top coat to see how it came up. Click on the jump to see the results.
Man this is hot. And it's under $5. You guys are just lucky you can't see me drooling over my own thriftyness right now.
