Our Ultramatter Lipsticks come with a high colour payoff with no-shine finish, in a wide variety of natural tones to bold hues. 

This colour dense but non-drying matte lip formula can be used to create a multitude of on-trend lip looks.  For a bold, confident look, apply straight from the bullet for full colour pay off.  Alternatively, for a more understated look, pat on to lips with fingertips over a lip balm to create a soft lip stain with a slightly glossy sheen.

Long lasting, colour intense lipsticks with a semi-matte cushioned finish. Half-way between matte and satin, Antimatter lipsticks glide onto lips smoothly and provide comfortable, continuous wear. 

‘Antimatter Lipstick gives a soft matte finish but with a cushioned comfort feel to the lips. While this formula is dense in colour, I love to apply it lightly for a soft stained look by using my fingers and patting the colour onto the lips. For a full look, apply with a makeup brush or straight from the bullet. I sometimes use Antimatter to create a soft blush look, by using a soft fluffy brush and blending in circular motions on to the apples of cheeks.

The lightweight, buildable Sheer Veil Lipstick is oil-infused full of Macadamia Oil and Vitamin E. Keeping lips are conditioned, nourished and protected.  From popping pinks to caramel browns. 

When choosing your blusher colour, select a shade that compliments the lip product you are using, as this creates a sense of harmony on the face. One of the easiest ways to do this is to use the lipstick you are wearing as a blusher colour, too – and Sheer Veil is perfect for this.  Rub a fluffy brush over the bullet and apply directly to the apples of cheeks for a soft, glowy flush of cheek colour.  Then, add sheer shine to lips using the same Sheer Veil lipstick for a polished, cohesive complexion.
