Have you ever stood in the beauty aisle just like this, looking for the most perfect neutral lip color? Trying to figure out what formula and brand to buy, what colors will look good on your skin tone, if you should get matte or gloss, and the list goes on and on… Well fear not!! I braved the lip product aisle and found some great options for you. And I consider myself to be quite the expert 🙂 Just look at my purse and you will count 13 different lipsticks, glosses, and balms (yes, I know I have a problem). But what can I say? I love trying new brands and formulas and a neutral lip is amazing for any occasion.
NYX Soft Matte Cream in ‘Abu Dhabi’ and ‘Stockholm’ – This is one of my top favorite formulas. It’s a liquid lipstick that applies so smoothly. It dries to a nice matte without cracking and looking too dry or cake-y.
Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color in ‘Loyalist’ – If you want a color that will stay on all day, this is the lipstick for you!! It offers medium coverage and is pretty creamy without being sticky.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in ‘HD Forever’ – This formula is so versatile! It applies a little glossy but dries to a velvet and looks gorgeous. The color is also very pigmented, so no need to apply loads of coats to get that lovely shade.
Wet N Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick in ‘Nudie Patootie’ – I won’t lie, I bought this originally because I loved the name! But I keep purchasing this because the lipstick is comfortable for all-day wear and this shade looks amazing on any skin tone. The formula is streak-free too, which comes in handy.
COVERGIRL Melting Pout Matte Lipstick in ‘305 Ballerina’ – Another drugstore favorite, this color has an amazing sheen to it! It’s very bold and such a great vibrant matte for everyday wear.
Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in ‘Rosè’ – I’ve been using this for as long as I can remember and has to be one of my favorites! The color on this will not budge all day long and looks like you just applied it, even after lunch. As the name says, it dries super quick and has an even application.
TOO FACED Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in ‘Child Star’ – This liquid lipstick also applies like a gloss but dries matte. What I love is it also plumps up my lips a bit while still staying lightweight and lasting from morning until night!
LipSense by Senegence in ‘Pink Champagne’ – I just recently received this lipstick and was blown away! If you truly want to have your lip color stay on from 6:30am to 9:00pm, then this is the one product I would recommend to you. The color is just gorgeous, applies like a dream and does not budge. It also happens to be non-GMO, vegan and cruelty free!
