Mattes so drying

Do they sell cream and satin lipsticks that's also matte, but won't dry out your lips . Because mattes can be so drying to the lips for me. Ibelieve they should sell way more than they do sell even though they got some few selection mattes that's not drying Sephora cream mattes the new ones & Bite lip creams lipsticks...💄 💄 💄 #Pleasehelpme

RE: Mattes so drying

I really like the lawless liquid lips. They are matte (kind of satin matte) but are very comfortable. They have beautiful colors (I own prince and brad). The only drawback I’d say is that these are long lasting but not transfer resistant when compared to some of the other brands mentioned here.

Thank you @maria108

Re: Mattes so drying

@Anonymous I only wear liquid lipstick. I try to branch out into lipstick once in a blue moon but always come back to liquid lippies. I find for each brand, it depends on the shade chosen also. 

In Sephora brand for example, Marvelous Mauve doesnt dry out my lips but Always Red does. 


I agree with the others that Nars PowerMatte isn't drying, however I do find PowerMatte I need to touch up half way through the day. 


Too Faced Melted Matte is a favourite of mine; I find them to be comfortable and long wearing.

Thank you GG84

Thank you @GG84 but the ones I have been trying so far has been so drying to my lips. I just think they need to create more velvety soft lippie ones. Because I have got ones I didn't like because they we're so drying to me. But I did mention in my post were they are some that's not drying. I don't think that all mattes are all bad. But thank you for the recommendation so much

Re: Mattes so drying

@Anonymous In addition to NARS Powermatte liquid lipsticks (which I am a HUGE fan of), I recommend you check out Smashbox Always On matte liquid lipsticks. They have a wide array of colors, go on smoothly and don't dry out my lips.

Re: Mattes so drying



I just tried the matte lip colors from Nars and I did not find that they were too drying. We have a small set duo now but, they also have some other shades that are sold individually.


I also recommend using a lip primer if you have not already tried one! I noticed less dryness on the lips and the product goes on smoothly afterwards.

It must be me the ones I have tried been drying I think they need more creamy and satin mattes. But I guess that's in my opinion. But I'm willing to try the Powermattes I can give them a try instead. Thanks @melissabt for the recommendation..
