Flaunt your makeup and slay the day with these luxurious, long-lasting matte lipsticks.
The one thing that ties your entire makeup look together is lipstick. Whether you’re going for an all-natural or a glamorous look, a good lipstick can do wonders for you. And if you opt for a matte lipstick, your life becomes so much easier. Matte lipsticks are longer-lasting, require almost no touchups, are smudge-proof and transfer-resistant, and look so much classier than their non-matte alternatives. A matte lipstick can be a creamy bullet or a waterproof liquid. With the range of formulations, textures, and colours available in the market, choosing one that fits your needs can become a task. To narrow down your choices, here is a list of our beauty expert’s handpicked favourites, just for you.
