The Perfect Matte Lip Makeup Look

jane iredale Beyond Matte Lip Stains

A beautiful lip colour can completely transform your look. Whether you choose a touch of pink to tie together your makeup or a bold, bright red to add impact on a minimal makeup day, a great lip stain is the perfect accompaniment to any beauty look - think of it as an accessory to make a look your own and that you know will last!

Why You’ll Love Beyond Matte Lip Stain

Unlike many matte lipstick shades, which can leave the lips feeling tight, dry and uncomfortable, the jane iredale Beyond Matte Lip Stains are rich in plant-based oils and Vitamin E to condition, protect and nourish the lips while feeding them with skin-loving antioxidants.

Each Lip Stain has an intense, beyond matte finish and a Tahitian Vanilla scent, and the ultra-long-lasting pigment of each stain allows for hours of wear without smudging nor feathering.

Choosing the right Beyond Matte Lip Stain shade

How to Choose Your Perfect Lip Colour

For everyday wear, we love Fascination, a matte rosy pink designed to add depth to your natural lip colour. For an evening out try Blissed-Out, a matte cool pink, slightly darker pink to the Fascination for added impact. For a beautifully bold, high fashion look, opt for Obsession, a matte raspberry red with powerful payoff - the perfect way to add a pop of colour to your makeup.

Creating the Perfect Matte Lip Look

Where many matte lip stains require you to thoroughly prepare the lips prior to application to prevent the lips from becoming chapped, the product from drying out and the colour from feathering, Beyond Matte Lip Stains are rich in hydrating ingredients that will care for the lips as you apply the product.

If your lips are feeling particularly dry, however, we recommend applying a nourishing balm, like the our LipDrink Lip Balm in Sheer, or using a lip exfoliant, prior to application.

Thanks to the Beyond Matte Lip Stain's ergonomically designed precision applicator and the product’s rich pigment, these lip stains will deliver a beyond matte, intense result in a single pass. Simply sweep the applicator across your lips and you are ready to go!
