There’s no doubt that matte liquid lipsticks have captured the heart of the beauty world en masse.
When ColourPop recently released 24 of their Ultra Matte Lip colors, their site crashed and quickly went out of stock on the very first day.
Matte liquid lipsticks are beloved and fawned over. Is it the intense pigmentation? The promise of comfortable long-wearing color you don’t have to touch up frequently? The fact that they’re the complete opposite of glosses? It’s probably a little of all of the above, and I’ll admit I was one of those buyers crashing the ColourPop site because I had to have some of their matte lip colors on that very first day.
From Anastasia Beverly Hills, NYX, Ofra, Kat Von D, ColourPop, and L.A. Girl, I have swatches of a variety of matte liquid lipsticks to share with you today. In my experience, your mileage may vary when it comes to how well the colors last on your lips, and I’ll share my thoughts on how well the colors stand the test of time.
Keep reading to see swatches and get my thoughts on these gorgeous matte liquid lipsticks!
I believe the Soft Matte Lip Creams were among the very first matte liquid lipsticks to hit the market. They’re not true mattes, but have a bit of a glossy texture. While they don’t fly away on your lips, they’re not the longest wearing of the bunch.
When I was swatching this color in my favorite hole-in-the-wall beauty shop, I was handed a makeup remover wipe with cleansing oil to make sure the colors would really come off of my hand. I was warned these colors last for hours upon hours, and that would be correct. These lipsticks are great bargain picks
Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Mina ($19.90)
Named after a fellow beauty blogger, this is a really pretty deep burgundy that is smooth and long wearing. Ofra’s are great options to try!
I have to say Anastasia’s liquid lipsticks started a revolution on Instagram. These are favorites, and for a good reason, offering long wearing, highly pigmented color that sticks!
I love ColourPop and think this is one of the most exciting beauty brands out there right now. I do love these lip colors, but find them to be the least long wearing of any that are featured in this group.
Ooh, this pink though! Of all the matte lipsticks I featured, this is my personal winner – Beloved is my boo! The color is perfection and the lipstick lasts the longest on me without flaking off. These liquid lipsticks have a well-deserved stellar reputation.
