Matte Lipsticks

A sophisticated option. Look for a creamy matte texture, as some matte formulas are very dry and cause lips to appear cracked and dehydrated. The only way to know if a particular brand is dry is to try it.

Note: Some women, especially those with dry skin, find that they can wear matte lip color only during the summer, when warm, humid weather melts and moistens even the most matte lipsticks.

The room itself was unlit and got darker the further back from the bar, until, at the extremities, the people were just gloomy shadows. There was a stage at one end of the bar, on which the girls would strut around and dance, usually badly, to booming Western music. Mainly they wore bikinis, or just a few odd spots of clothing. Some took their dancing seriously and strived to produce steps and moves that were intended to be meaningful and erotic, their faces gripped in concentration. Others took the whole thing as a grand game, charging around the stage, taking their tops off and waving them around, yelling at the crowd, whipping us all up. Sometimes the stage would butt onto the bar and the girls would prance along the bar top, kicking over ashtrays and drinks if you weren’t careful. The clientele were mostly seaman, some US soldiers, and a few odd travellers, who all whooped and howled and drank cold beer as fast as the glasses could be refilled. Strutting around the bar-floor were the girls who were in between bouts on the stage, or who didn’t perform, striking up talk with the customers, badgering for drinks – which were overpriced, but not by that much. They danced with the customers, laughing and flattering and clinging on. It wasn’t until the end of the night that someone told me they were all prostitutes.
