These are one of the best drugstore liquid to matte lipsticks out there! The 8.99 price tag is great for the amount of product you get and the quality of the actual product. I would compare these to the Anastasia liquid lipsticks, only the Milani ones feel thinner and not so heavy. The formula is very pigmented and dries quickly with minimum patchiness, if there is any at all I just fix that with a second coat. Adding another coat doesn't change the formula at all, it doesn't cake up or crack or anything. I typically put on some chapstick before applying any liquid lipstick just so that there's at least a little bit of moisture, and I believe that helps as well. These smell kindof like the Kylie lipkits, with a vanilla cake batter type of scent, but it's not overwhelming and it pretty much goes away once it dries down. The shades pictured are "making me matte" (#11), a more browny copper and "the ultimatte" (#15), a warm-toned deep purple. I would totally recommend, these are great! ...read more

With 12 shades of NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick, your only problem will be how to choose the right color of this ultra smooth lipstick that slides on, dries, and locks in place.

I personally love NYX matte lipsticks. The ones I have are some of my favourite lipsticks I own. They are super matte but not drying. They also apply very easily and are very long lasting! The only problem with them is that they transfer quite easily, but then again, most lipsticks do. I don't pair them with any lip liner and they never bleed.

The shades I own:

Euro Trash: One of my go-tos. It's a perfect fall colour! A sort of darkish nude with an orange/brown undertone. I also find it extremely easy to pair with many outfits. Even though it's more of a fall/winter colour, I think it can work in the summer with certain outfits. I wouldn't pair it with any bright colours but I love it with neutral colours. It alone can make a cute girly summer outfit into more of a boho look.

Whipped Caviar: The perfect pink. It's definitely a pink-mauve shade. It's medium toned. I can see this colour being rocked in the summer, spring, and even winter. I don't wear pink lipsticks too often but I really wanted one that's not too bold and this is the perfect colour for that!

Both of these colours also look great during the day and the evening. ...read more

Who wouldn't want luscious matte lips like Katy Perry? She created these demi-matte COVERGIRL Katy Kat Matte Lipstick shades and we think you'll love the creamy finish.

I adore these lipsticks. I started out just buying the one, 'Pinky Paws' and fell in love with the formula of the lipstick and decided to just flat out buy all the colors that I like. So far I have six colors and am aiming to buy two more to complete my collection.

This lipstick is a semi-matte lipstick, not a matte nor a true shiny lipstick. The shea butter words amazing and moisturizes my lips every time I put it on my lips. It truly is amazing.

The longevity of this lipstick is come and go, depending on the colors. The lighter the color, the more I see it coming off. I just used the red lipstick (Cat Call) and found that it stained my lips nicely and wore a lot longer than any of the others. I'm excited to use that one for my Wonder Woman costume this coming August!

I'm really glad that I bought these lipsticks (from Wal-Mart) and will be doubling up on a couple so I don't have to scour the internet to buy them again.

Great lipsticks! ...read more

Some of the BEST drugstore lipsticks in my opinion. These are super duper cheap (like around $2) and the quality is so amazing for the price!!
My mom raves about these lipsticks and she's really picky.
Some of them are dupes for MAC shades and other high end lipsticks as well.
The pigmentation is to die for. Although some of the colors like the bright hot reds and oranges have a tendency to bleed off the lip line after 4-6 hours.
And the lipsticks don't stand up well to eating and drinking.
But for an everyday lipstick or a beginner in makeup, these are so so so good!!!
They even have a matte collection.
You def won't regret checking these out ☺️ ...read more

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstickdoes just what it claims–it stays in place, like SUPER stays. This color lasts for up to 16 hours. We even tested it through an intense workout and guess what? It was still fully in tact at the end.

YALL this stuff. I don't think I can rave about it enough. I received the color Lover which I can describe as a Wine color. It has purple undertones and looks pretty good on fair skin. The packaging is sleek and very modern. Definitely different than most products out right now which makes it stand out. The formula is super creamy, glides on pretty well, and the applicator compliments the product. I always swatch my voxbox products because I like knowing how they are before I put them to use. I swatched this and was really surprised. It glides on like a gloss, dries down Matte, and I could not get the stuff off. I tried water, didn't work, soap and water, slightly worked, finally had to scrub the remainder off with a make up remover wipe and even then there was color on my hand. I had a dinner that night so I thought why not test it with some food?! I put the color on, and let me tell y'all what all I ate.Please note that dinner was at 8, I put the color on at 330-4 o'clock ish and ate a meal before dinner because I was starving. I ate a full sloppy joe, mac n cheese, chips and queso, and downed a whole margarita. There was NOTHING on my fork that I ate the mac n cheese with, NOTHING on my margarita straw, and this is what my lips looked like when I got home about 8 hours later. Yes I'm slightly duckfacing to show where the product did come off of, but nothing really stays on the inner part of your mouth. I am not someone who drinks a ton of water and I find the NYX Lingerie liquid lipsticks very drying. Not really the case with this product. I know it looks super drying in the photo, but honestly it isn't. It's not hydrating, but not drying. It's just kinda there. It also didn't really flake off like other liquid lip colors I have tried. Now, you're probably wondering why I have assigned it 4 stars when I have raved about it. I have found one flaw. Yes the formula is amazing for staying on your lips, however it is a smidge difficult to apply. The formula is goopy? I guess you could say. It's not runny, but it definitely hangs and drops off the edge of the applicator. That being said, it can over line your lips or leave a residue surrounding your lips if you don't scrape off the excess product. Other than that I really can't find anything bad to say. ...read more

Our Take

Sometimes it can be hard to find a matte lip color that's also hydrating. We've found one for you–L'Oréal Colour Riche® Matte Lipstick. TIP: For a bolder look, before applying this lipstick, line your lips with Colour Riche Matte Lip Liner.

The L'Oréal Colour Riche® Matte Lipsticks offer rich, vibrant hues! My favorite of the 3 shades I tried is Blake's red, even though I don't wear red often. I get so many compliments when I wear this color, and it lasts much longer than the nude colors in the same line. For being matte, the lipsticks are not drying. In fact when first used they are very hydrating. However, the moisture does not last as the color, and that is something I look for in a lipstick. There is no feathering or bleeding. Lipstick stayed in place and never ended up under my lip or on my teeth. Those are wins for me! I was also surprised to LOVE the matte lip liners. I am ordinarily not a lip liner kind of gal, but these are amazing. Color lasted HOURS, really all day. Funny thing is they lasted longer alone. When I added lipstick to them, they lasted through lunch. So, take that for what it's worth. Let's talk about the smell. Oh, L'Oreal, how I love you. But, I hate how your products smell! It's not overwhelming, but it is strong enough to notice and never, ever forget. One last thing I'll add that I love - the placement of the logo on the lipstick. I love the branding and appreciate this so much! Thanks to Influenster and L'Oreal for my complimentary lippies in exchange for my honest review.
