The matte lip has had a good run and now brands are going back to the shine.

If we had to name the beauty trend of the year for the year 2016, the matte lip wins handsdown. It started with Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits, was amplified by Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip colour among others and then trickled down to many other smaller brands just jumping onto the matte bandwagon.

Well, as much as the matte lip has had a good run, brands are seemingly done with the matte look and going back to the shine. Look no further if you’re seeking to update your lip wardrobe.
