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. There’s no need to go into a dressing room, struggle to squeeze into something that doesn’t fit, or even spend a pretty penny. Lipstick comes in essentially a million and one shades—maybe more—and a variety of finishes, meaning there’s something for everyone. In fact, the hardest part of picking a new lipstick to buy is figuring out which one of those plentiful hues to purchase. Thankfully, finding the right finish isn’t quite as much of a challenge. If you’re interested in following makeup trends, you’re already aware that matte makeup is super-popular. As for narrowing down which colors to pick up, since your wallet surely wouldn’t appreciate buying them all, we’ve decided to make your next lip color shopping trip a little easier, by cutting the number of colors you need to only seven. From classic colors to more out-there shades, here are the seven matte lipsticks we know you’ll look gorgeous wearing.
If you’re under the impression that brown isn’t a very exciting color, think again. 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 a 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.

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. Light, bright, and deep lipsticks all deserve to be worn in every season. Instead of simply continuing to color your lips with what you wore throughout winter, swap your most-worn cold weather shades for a darker red with rusty undertones.

Branching out and wearing brighter lipsticks can be a little bit scary, but there’s no better time to make that switch. While you may not be ready to take the plunge into rocking vivid blues or greens, a bright berry is completely do-able—not to mention beautiful!

Have you ever heard of MLBB lipstick? MLBBs or “my lips but better” lipsticks are those with 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. If you don’t have time for touchups, the shade will slowly and subtly fade. Once you find your MLBB match, try pairing it with a no makeup, makeup look to complete the feature enhancing effect.

In case you haven’t heard, let us fill you in: Purple is slated to be the most popular color in 2018. And yes, that even applies to lipstick! Since nothing says springtime quite like a pastel, opt for a pastel purple hue.

Searching for a shade that screams spring but aren’t sure purple is your jam? Look no further. A juicy peach color is perfect for welcoming warmer weather and suitable to just about any situation.

It’s official—you can’t go wrong with a classic red lipstick. It may seem bold, but a blue-based red will be flattering on almost everyone. Even better, the blue tones can make your teeth look whiter! Swipe one on to put it to the test.
