Mad About Matte: 10 Lip Glosses With Serious Staying Power

Jul 29 2014 - 3:00pm

Ever since Mom OK'd lip gloss in middle school, it's been one of my favorite beauty products. But, as I've swapped pencil cases and backpacks for makeup bags and satchels, I've put supershiny glosses aside in favor of more mature, matte-finish lipsticks. Recently, a new hybrid of lip gloss has broken onto the beauty scene. Meet the matte lip gloss. While this formula glides on like a liquid, it dries with a sophisticated satin finish. Plus, it stays on your lips during a sweaty Summer music festival [1] or even a steamy snogging session (read one editor's review of wearing this while making out with her boyfriend [2] — seriously!). Scroll below to check out some of the hottest hues this season.

Aromi Liquid Lipstick in Pink Peonies ($17)

Not only is this bright fuchsia pick from indie brand Aromi [3] eye-grabbing, but it's vegan and cruelty-free, too.

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Strawberry Kissed ($13)

If you're afraid of committing to a full-on matte red, then this pinky hue [4] is a great stepping stone.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Rose ($28)

Allow the focus to be on your smoky eye by choosing a dusty rose like this Hourglass stunner [5].

Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in A-Go-Go ($19)

We wouldn't expect anything other than a heavy-duty, shocking shade [6] from talented tattoo artist Kat Von D.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso ($22)

You'll be in charge from the boardroom to the bedroom when you wear this sexy, power-pout hue [7].

NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm ($6)

NYX [8] is a favorite of makeup artists and moms alike [9] for both its long-wear formula and wallet-friendly price. This neutral hue looks beach ready with a tan.

Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Surrender ($26)

If you're looking to try out a mod makeup look, try a pastel peach [10] such as this totally Twiggy-esque shade from Illamasqua [11].

Lime Crime Velvetine in Wicked ($20)

A vampy deep burgundy [12] is an unexpected Summer party choice, but it looks smoldering with a bronzed glow.

Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Moscato ($28)

If you're looking for a bright pink that Nicki Minaj would envy, you need this vibrant shade in your stash [13].

Coloured Raine Matte Lip Paint in Vanity ($16)

Coloured Raine is a favorite of many makeup artists of Instagram, and with good reason — its lip products are intensely pigmented [14], making this a super asset for your next selfie.
