A pop of colour granted by way of a layer of lipstick is a great way to amp up your look. But your lips are especially vulnerable: there aren’t any oil glands there and the muscles contract whenever we speak, making it prone to drying out. Many lipstick formulas only worsen the effect, caking and crumbling off after a few hours while leaving your lips chapped. To help you out, we’ve gathered the best liquid matte lipsticks that will soothe your pout rather than making them parched. In whichever shade you settle on, these options pack your lips with pigment while keeping them hydrated, so you won’t ever have to trade comfort for vanity ever again.
