Matte liquid lipstick usually comes with a trade-off. It’s either long-wearing super-pigmented color or comfortable lips—not both. But, of course, there are exceptions. Case in point: the L.A. Colors Matte Liquid Lip Color, which proves all myths and horror stories of matte liquid lipstick wrong. Merging the supersaturated pigment of a lipstick with the ease of a gloss, the Matte Liquid Lip Colors boast a unique formula that makes it one of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks we‘ve ever worn. They have a watery consistency which first struck us as a recipe for a mess. But within seconds of applying it, the liquid-y pigment set into a comfortable matte finish. You can swipe on the lipstick in the morning and completely forget you are wearing it, save for the steady stream of compliments that may tip you off. With that said, there’s a total of 7 shades, from nudes to full-throttle bolds—each one as pretty as you would expect.

But the real clincher is the price tag. At only P249 a pop, these may be the answer to your matte liquid lipstick prayers. See the swatches on the BeautyMNL team, below!
