Whether you’re the shop ‘til you drop type or more of a shopper by necessity, we can all agree that one of the most fun items you can shop for is lipstick. And if you’re up-to-date with the latest makeup trends, you’re already aware that matte makeup and matte lipstick especially are super-popular. Of course, while the matte trend can help you narrow down which lipstick to buy, there are still a million and one shades—maybe more—to choose from, which can make perusing the makeup aisle a little overwhelming. To make your next lip color shopping trip a little easier, we’re sharing eight of our best matte lipsticks to consider adding to your collection.
#1. INFALLIBLE PRO-MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK IN COWBOY
If you’re under the impression that brown isn’t a very exciting color, think again. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cowboy is worthy of joining every makeup lover’s collection. Sporting this increasingly sought after shade is like wearing nude lipstick—which we have no doubts you’re already a fan of—with a twist. So, swiping on this brown liquid lip shouldn’t be too much of a stretch! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that a quick coat will have you coordinating with your favorite social media influencers and famous families.
#2. ROUGE SIGNATURE MATTE LIP STAIN IN I AMAZE
The weather may be warming up (much to our joy), but that doesn’t mean you’re obligated to make dark lipsticks something of the past. The L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain in I Amaze is a beautiful rust shade worthy of being worn all year long. This darker red with rusty undertones will feel light on your lips while giving them high impact color.
#3. COLOUR RICHE MATTE LIPSTICK IN BERRY MATTE PINK
Branching out and wearing brighter lipsticks can be a little bit scary, but there’s no better time to make that switch. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Berry Matte Pink to paint your pout in a bright, berry pink shade. While you may not be ready to take the plunge and rock vivid blues or greens, a bright berry is completely do-able—not to mention beautiful!
#4. INFALLIBLE PRO-MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK IN NUDIST
Have you ever heard of MLBB lipstick? MLBB or “my lips but better” lipsticks are those in shades that aren’t too far off from your natural lip color—they’re just ever so slightly better. The best part is, you don’t have to worry about your lipstick wearing away in an unflattering way. Swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Nudist. If you don’t have time for touchups, the shade will slowly and subtly fade into your natural lip color. Try pairing it with a no makeup, makeup look to complete the feature-enhancing effect.
