Matte lips are your speed. You appreciate the polished feel that only a matte formula can bring to your makeup look. However, not all mattes are one size fits all. If you love warm neutrals, then we highly recommend the Maybelline New York Color Sensational Ultimatte Neo-Neutrals Slim Lipstick Collection. NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie XXL Matte Liquid Lipstick is perfect for those who crave a longwear liquid formula and the appearance of fuller-looking lips. The Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Matte finishes are ultra-hydrating so lips don’t dry out.
