5 Drugstore Matte Lipsticks Everybody Loves
Matte lipsticks can be tricky to work with. They tend to dry out the lips, leaving your with rough, patchy and flaky pout. Not cute! And while glossy lips can make you look charming, there’s something about matte lips that make you feel bold and edgy. Pair a matte lip with smoky eye or barely-there make-up look, it will still bring an extra oomph to the look that glossy lips can’t mimic.
But is it really worth the patchy, dry lips? Luckily, you no longer have to choose. We have listed down our top five favorite drugstore matte lippies that aren’t drying and are affordable, so you can rock a matte lip sans the flaking.
