Matte lipsticks often lack the lip-loving ingredients to offset their shine-free, long-lasting, not-quite-moisturizing effects. In other words, they leave your smoocher as cracked as the Sahara. That’s why everybody will tell you to slather your lips in balm and buff away flakes as damage control (insert wails of laziness here.)
Today, local beauty fave PILI is putting all that in the past. Mattes are no longer limited to dry, chalky formulas—nope, not with the new Matte Lipsticks they’ve just put out! An offshoot of their popular satin-finish tubes, these mattified formulas are jam-packed with pili oil, which creates a smooth and creamy canvas. No flaking, no patching! And if you’re up to date with your beauty oil info, you’ll know that pili is known for its anti-aging, fine-line-fighting properties. Sweet.

In this collection, there are 5 gorgeous shades to choose from—some bold, some neutral, all gorgeously wearable. See the swatches below on the girls at the BeautyMNL office!
