Looking for a more affordable alternative? Maybelline's SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Color, $9.49, has over 4,000 stellar comments about its staying power and super pigmented formula. Similarly, the NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, just $6.99, has raked in over 3,000 five-star ratings out of its more than 5,000 reviews. It's a must-try because of its velvety, creamy feel on application, that dries to a super-matte finish without feeling tight or flaky.
Amongst the highest rated, most popular lipsticks are picks from other familiar brands, like drugstore classic Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick, $8.49, and MAC's $18.50 super-matte lipstick (especially loved in true-red shade Ruby Woo).
