10 BEST MATTE LIPSTICKS FOR THAT PERFECT, MOIST POUT
We all love Matte lipsticks because they’re long lasting and highly pigmented. But they sometimes leave your lips looking like dried up cake. So we’ve put together a list of matte lipsticks that don’t dry out your lips. Sound too good to be true? If only!
1. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture
If that truly special lipstick that feels luxurious on your lips is up your alley, go for Yves Saint Laurent. It’s rich and creamy, and it will last all day on your lips without drying up.
2. Bobbi Brown Art Sticks
Enriched with shea butter and vegetable-derived oil, the chunky lip pencil creates a rich, oily texture that stays on as applied for up to six hours. What’s more, you can use them on your cheeks too, for a pop of colour.
3. Shiseido Perfect Rouge
This natural semi-transparent formula gives you a smooth finish. The formula is intensely hydrating, so you don’t need to fear that it will go dry on you. A blend of oils trap the moisture and keep your lips looking plump and delicious.
4. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet
As we expect from Chanel, the colour stays on like a lip stain. The finish is shine-free, but there appears to be an intrinsic luminosity to this product. Apply it to your lips and watch them glow with life.
5. Estée Lauder Pure Colour
This is the nude lipstick of choice in this list. Not only does it easily glide on for a quick application, the colour and moisture stay on all day for that come-on look.
6. Chambor Powder Matte
These come with a triple action, non-drying formula. Vitamin A and jojoba oil hydrate, UVA and UVB filters provide sun-protection while anti-ageing Vitamin E softens and smoothens lips.
7. Clinique Long Last
This is perfect for mature skin. It won’t move or ‘feather’ over your skin, leaving you with delightful colour for hours. The best hue in this selection is that of Watermelon Soft Shine, for that unique, retro look.
8. Tarte Lipsurgence Matte Lip Stain
The magic formula of this lip stain is not just concentrated pigments, but a proprietary blend of bio oils, nutrients, and technology that will keep your lips moist at a cellular level and assists in collagen formation naturally. It uses Carnauba wax for easy application, and coconut extracts and peppermint oil as soothing agents.
9. Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme
A range of great colours, a soft creamy texture, and a promise of not drying out. What more could one ask for in a matte lipstick? You could try layering different colours in this range to find your own comfortable colour. Go ahead and play!
10. NARS Pure
This is not just a lipstick, it has the feel of a hydrating lip treatment. Enriched with mango butter, it moisturises and protects your lips while at the same time delivering a perfect splash of colour.
