It turns out that the best matte lipstick for Mac is much loved by famous makeup artists like Jamie Greenberg, who told PEOPLE that he keeps it in his kit at all times for clients like Rashida Jones, Molly Shannon and Jane Levy. The votes have come in and the reviewers said that MAC Matte lipstick was on its back. Critics praised that lipstick was as soft as butter and would never dry out, bleed or become heavy during hours of use. One noted that the traditional round tip felt tube is made to have clean edges, so there's no need to use a lip liner.
We also love that it's available in a rainbow of shades to flatter any skin tone. Lipsticks that aren't designed to be durable often transfer color and get stained or worn out easily. They liked the easy-to-use applicator and were impressed with the staying power and transfer resistance. Beyond the velvety texture and excellent staying power, they also loved the luxurious packaging and the beautiful bullet-like container.
While applying liquid lipsticks can be intimidating, especially formulas that don't come off easily, this one is remarkably easy to use. Dose of Colors was one of the independent brands that soon entered the liquid lipstick trend, and the brand's liquid matte lipstick formula has always been good. When buying a long-lasting lipstick, Urban Decay's global makeup artist, Steve Kassajikian, recommends first deciding what type of formula you'd like to use. KVD Beauty's Everlasting Longwear liquid lipstick came out sticky and thick and dried instantly to a completely matte finish.
This sensible liquid lipstick scored 4 for its comfort and pigment, 5 for its use and 4.3 for its total value. There's no reason for Wet n Wild's Megalast Liquid Catsuit matte lipsticks to be as good as they are. This formula may be barely visible on your lips, but every stroke of this matte lipstick with a suede texture leaves a completely opaque line of color, no matter which of its six shades of red you choose. Like most makeup products, finding a lipstick that lasts all day often comes down to trial and error.
This liquid lipstick has an ultra-matte formula that stays in place for a full eight hours, and comes in 10 shades of pink, red and nude that you can wear to add to your makeup collection. It shouldn't be too much to ask for, but unfortunately, smudge-proof lipsticks can be hard to find.
