I had forgotten just how much I enjoy Lancome's lipsticks, until I picked up Pink Preview from their Color Design Matte collection. They retail for around $30 here in Canada, and I think they are worth every penny.
They claim, according to the site to:
Color Design, the expert in makeup artistry, is right on trend with brand new matte finishes expanding our range of sensational effects for your Lips. This new formula contains a revolutionary Color Seal Complex comprised of soft silicones and pigments that are combined with concentrated comfort agents to deliver optically diffused color that is feather-resistant and non-drying. Lips are stylishly matte and experience velvety comfort all day.

This group comes in 8 shades, and I definitely want to get a few more. Here are a few pictures of Pink Preview (a matte blue-based pink; gorgeous on fair-skinned girls).
Now, the only weird thing about this lipstick is that the above picture, the top is actually the bottom, if that makes any sense. So once you open it from the top, the lipstick is actually aiming south, not north. As a designer, this really gets to me :-(
Overall, I highly reccommend this line of matte lipsticks for everyone :) They just look so natural on, and they are so smooth and long lasting. You really don't need a lot. These are by-far the best matte lipsticks I have ever tried. Try them out next time you're out!! :)
