13 Amazing Matte Drugstore Lipsticks That Won't Dry Out Your Lips



Another day, another beauty trend. With time, the hype of new launches, popular beauty looks, and fun trends usually fade. That's one of the exciting aspects of beauty—there's always something new, and you're never stuck on something for too long. Trends are short-lived; once one has run its course, you're on to the next. This fact rings true with the exception of a handful of trends that are here to stay, like matte lipstick. And we're so here for it.

We're fans of a good matte lip for a multitude of reasons: It's highly pigmented, non-drying, and has seriously amazing staying power. Honesty moment—I'm beauty-obsessed and simultaneously lazy, so matte lipstick has been my favorite thing since the day I discovered I could apply it once and not touch my lips for hours after.

What's even better is drugstore brands are stepping it up and formulating matte lipsticks that are just as good (or even better) than high-end options on the market for half the price. Whether you're in a hurry and need a long-lasting lipstick ASAP or you just don't feel like spending your whole paycheck on matte lipsticks, your local drugstore has hidden gems you need.

We wanted to prove just how good these inexpensive matte lipsticks are, so we tapped celebrity makeup artists to find out which drugstore mattes are always in their kits for their star-studded clients. Click through for the best drugstore matte lipsticks, all under $7, waiting for you at the drugstore.
