Sheer matte lipstick formulas are some of our go-tos during the colder months because they feel lightweight and hydrating but still offer a good amount of pigment. Better yet, no matter what mood we’re in, their buildable color give us the choice to mattify our lips or leave them just-bitten. Ahead, we rounded up five of our favorite sheer matte lipsticks that you’ll swoon over this winter, too.
The Slim Sheer Matte Lippie from YSL is a new favorite amongst beauty lovers because it has the softest texture and most luxurious feel. The best part about this lippie is that it can be built up to extremely vivid colors and gives off a gorgeous “just-tissue-blotted” finish.
There’s a reason why the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a drugstore favorite: It’s lightweight, extremely buildable and makes your mouth feel like it's wearing a cloud of color. You simply can’t go wrong with any color in the massive shade range because each hits the soft-focus matte look on the head.
Another cult-favorite is Plushies by Lime Crime. This range by far has the most plush texture when applied. The formula comes in a variety of shades (neon-bright included) that will have you addicted.
Generation G is the lipstick that mixes with your unique lip shade to give off a color that is unlike any other. It texture softly sits on the top layer of the skin and leaves you with your own unique berry, nude, red or pink shade.
For a creamy, sheer finish, try the Weightless Lip Color by Kosas. The texture of this lippie is hydrating — it contains shea butter and jojoba oil — and buildable enough to wear as just a wash of color or a totally pigmented semi-matte pout.
