Trend Alert – Matte

Not all that glitters is gold. In fact, we’re thinking quite the opposite! Right now, the promotional products world is loving all that is matte. If you’re unfamiliar with the poplar trend, matte is a color, paint or finish that has no shine. Over the last few years, we’ve seen it in makeup, jewelry, nail polish, home decor and more. Here are some hot promo products that have embraced this trendy finish!
