NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream
This lip cream from NYX is a soft matte formula. It applies nicely and doesn’t leave the lips too dry. Our favorites shades are Cannes, Istanbul, and San Paulo.
Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink
With a true liquid-to-matte formula, this lip ink stays put for up to 16-hours. The one drawback of this formula is that it is hard to take off. With over 30 shades, everyone will find the perfect color.
