Best matte lipsticks under $20? Ones that aren't too dry?

makeuploversunite answered:

When wearing matte lipsticks you want to always make sure to exfoliate your lips with a tooth brush or lip scrub either the morning of or night before. Also try to use a good lip balm at night so you wake up with moisturized lips ready for matte lipstick! You might even want to apply lip balm 30 minutes to an hour before applying lipstick and pat off the lap balm before applying any lip color. :)

Try lipsticks like

Maybelline Matte Lipsticks $6. These are very new so you might not find the new Maybelline Matteโ€™s line in stores yet but keep an eye out! The formula is matte but still creamy, very impressed!


Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipsticks $5. Also a more creamy, light weight formula.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks $1.99. These arent completely matte, they dry to a more satin finish. These are extremely moisturizing and creamy without looking glossy or shiny. Such a steal!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams $6. These go on more creamy and dry to a matte finish.ย
