My Favorite Matte Lipsticks | {Kali}

April 7, 2015

Hi friends! I love love love makeup—and I've been wanting to share some of my favorite products with you guys. Today I thought I would share my current favorite lipsticks. Lately, I've been all about the matte lipsticks. I actually don't think I've bought a new lipstick in the past year that wasn't matte. I just really love the look of it! I have never bought any high-end brands of lipsticks—I only buy drugstore brands. I can definitely justify spending money on face makeup (ie. foundation, blush, etc.), however, I just don't feel that way about lipsticks. The good news is there are so many awesome drugstore lipsticks that I have to believe are just as good as the high-end brands!

Check out my favorites below! The photos of me are unedited, and were taken in front of a window with a lot of natural light, so they should show the true color of each lipstick.

1. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious
These Revlon matte balms are amazing. I want them to come out with a bunch of new colors because I would literally buy them all. The "Audacious" color is my absolute favorite right now! It's such a pretty coral-orange, and it's basically perfect for summer.

2. NYX Matte Lipstick in Pure Red
I had heard such great things about the NYX lipsticks, so I went to Ulta a few months ago to pick out a few. They were actually out of a lot of the shades I would choose, but I found a few I really loved. I think every girl needs a true red lipstick, and this one does the trick for me! They also carry the NYX line at Target now, which is very convenient, there's just fewer options than at Ulta.

3. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Elusive
This would probably be my second favorite lipstick right now! It's a pretty shade of pink, and I can pretty much wear it with anything. It's definitely my go-to when I don't want to get all done up, but need a little color on my lips.

4. NYX Matte Lipstick in Natural
This one is pretty similar to the Revlon lipstick above, but just a little darker in color. I really love this one when I want to wear something more substantial than the "Elusive", but don't want to go with a red lipstick.

5. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Striking
This is another red that I love. It's definitely more subtle than the NYX "Pure Red" so I wear this when I'm feeling red, but don't want my lips to stand out quite as much.

I'd love to hear you guys' recommendations! What are you favorite matte (or non-matte!) lipsticks right now?
