Lip glosses may be intent on making a comeback, but the matte lipstick trend isn’t going anywhere. Not as long as Kylie Jenner and all of the matte-lipstick-loving beauty bloggers have a say, anyway.
Though Sephora and Ulta are crammed with matte lipstick options, not all products are created equal. The best matte lipsticks glide on without tugging and offer a rich, velvet finish and mega pigment. The wrong products draw out all of the moisture from lips and leave behind a chalky finish. Yuck.
With so many different options to choose from, it can take some trial and error to separate the Insta-worthy matte lipsticks from the subpar ones. That’s why we’ve scoured online reviews to find the best matte lipsticks that consistently get the seal of approval from beauty lovers.
