My Favorite Matte Lipsticks: High End + Drug Store

NARS POWERMATTE LIP PIGMENT ($26)

My all time favorite lipstick of any brand, color, or formula. I stumbled across this baby when I was testing lip colors at Ulta and had to have it that very day, but I left without it and actually received it as a Christmas gift from my best friend, Shelby. I only own one of these right now and it is in the shade ‘Save the Queen’ – it’s really difficult to find a lipstick that compliments my skin tone and this is the most perfect product I’ve come across to date. It goes on really creamy and dries quickly, but not so fast that you can’t apply it evenly. One of my favorite things about this lip pigment is that the applicator is teeny tiny and I can actually line my lips with it. It does transfer a little bit, but not enough to notice that the product is coming off. At the risk of sounding disgusting, I will admit that I fell asleep wearing this the other night and when I woke up the next morning it looked exactly the same as it did the day before.

NYX LIP LINGERIE ($7)

If you’re going to buy any of these, you HAVE to get the shade ‘Cheekies’ for day and ‘Exotic’ for night. These apply VERY smoothly, but they’re very creamy so if you’re not careful they could get a little messy. What makes me love these is the fact that after the product is dry, it feels like my lips are completely bare which is AWESOME because there’s nothing I hate more than peeling my matte lips apart all day.

L’OREAL INFALLIBLE PRO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK ($10)

This one is a little more sticky and a little more heavy, but the pigmentation is beautiful. I own the shade ‘Plum Bum’ which looks like a pinky-purple shade from the outside but is actually a deep purple color once applied. This little number lasts all day long and I don’t know about you but I definitely think a deep plum shade is sultry – it draws attention to my eyes, too! This lipstick has a “tear drop” shaped applicator so it’s a little more difficult to apply to the outside. I’m one of those people who is convinced that L’Oreal can do no wrong, so I guess you’ll have to take my word for it and try it out for yourself. 🙂

RIMMEL STAY MATTE LIQUID LIP COLOR ($5)

For only $5.00 this is a STEAL! I only had to apply one coat for this one to be popping, and that’s shocking for a cheaper lip product. It lasts for hours, isn’t sticky, and is even BETTER than Kylie Jenner’s liquid lipsticks. I’d honestly compare this lip color to the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lip Color, so if you know and love that one, then you need to know and love this one. Need I say more? 😉
