Sunnies Face Fluffmate Matte Lipstick Is One of the Most Comfortable Ones I’ve Tried — Product Review

Liquid matte lipsticks once had me in a chokehold — and I know I’m not alone; the 2010s was the era of opaque lipsticks that dried down without a sheen. Though typically I swipe on a shimmery lip gloss, I still love matte pigments. Still, these days I mostly wear matte only when I test … Read more
