The biggest conundrum when it comes to matte lipsticks is: to wear it or not. If your lips are dry, chapped or peeling – a matte lipstick can make it worse.  

You don’t have to avoid matte lipsticks and only use a lip gloss. The matte lipsticks featured here are velvety and lightweight as they contain more oils. Unlike lipsticks that leave a flat-matte finish, these are more comfortable on dry, patchy areas. They also contain blurring pigments that blur out fine lines for a smooth-looking pout.
