The 3 Best Drugstore Matte Lipsticks (That Anyone Could Have)

Did the "Three Best Friends that Anyone Could Have" song from The Hangover just get stuck in your head? I had to. #SorryNotSorry

Unless you've been living under a rock, you're well aware of the makeup craze that is matte lipstick. Matte versus sheer/glossy lip products- what's the difference? Long story short, sheer and satin lipsticks are infused with oil, moisturizing your lips and giving them a more plump look. Matte lipsticks give your lips a more natural, flushed color without providing moisture. The main difference? Glosses and satin lipsticks don't last quite long with touch-ups needed throughout the day while matte lip products last much longer since they don't contain any oils.

Now that you're aware of the difference between a satin/glossy versus a matte lipstick, I figured I'd do a quick rundown on my favorite drugstore matte lip products! These are all relatively affordable—I say relatively because the drugstore has been steadily increasing their prices. #WTH

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid. I own three of these bad boys. This liquid lipstick feels moisturizing on the lips without giving them a glossy look or feel after it dries. It feels like you're wearing nothing, but this product gives you a nice flush of color (depending on the shade, some are more opaque than others). The only downfall to these is that the color easily transfers before it dries- make sure you give your lips a solid 10 minutes to try before eating/drinking anything. These are about $8 and can be found at pretty much any drugstore.

L'oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lip Pen. I only own one shade (Matte for Me), but this lip pen is amazing. I will say it's a little drying, but the color lasts and entire day for me regardless of how many cups of coffee I consume. DON'T JUDGE ME. These retail for about $9-10.

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color. OMG- my absolute favorite matte lip product OF LIFE! This retails for only $5-6 and has such an amazing color payoff. This lipstick is a little drying, but be sure to apply lip balm 10-15 minutes prior to applying this. I have the colors Daringly Nude, Clay Crush and Rich Ruby, and they're all so amazing. You seriously can't get a better matte lipstick for the price!
