I dream of walking into Sephora to buy Kylie Jenner’s beautifully packaged cosmetics or Kat Von D’s matte liquid lipsticks but my modest budget prevents me from giving in to such delicious temptation.
Since I am very pale, I tend to avoid colours that are either very bold or very bright (otherwise I find that I look 100% like a clown). Here are 5 of the best matte nude lipsticks that merit a place in your makeup collection!
1- Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick
NEW! This little wonder just hit the shelves and we a-d-o-r-e it! The word “ink” says it all. This liquid lipstick doesn’t budge. It stays put through meals, drinks and drooling over that gorgeous guy on Saint-Catherine Street (hellooo). It’s super lightweight and doesn’t flake.
$11.99 at the pharmacy
2- Revlon Matte Balm
My very first matte lipstick; purchased long before the matte craze hit us! What I like most about it is the subtle orange tint that brightens my complexion beautifully. I always carry it with me wherever I go. Bonus: this lip balm keeps lips well-hydrated and looking absolutely audacious.

3- NYX Lip Lingerie
This truly is my favourite. Thank you for seeing me through nerve-wracking verbal presentations at school. Thank you for staying with me while I cried hot tears of pain (mixed with mascara). Thank you for always staying true no matter how hot it (Summer) gets. #godbless
An absolute must have for your makeup collection… guaranteed!

4- Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick
This liquid lipstick is definitely splurge-worthy. It’s not only waterproof and practically weightless, it also lasts a full 8 hours (tested and approved! #unlessyoufrenchkissyourboyfriend); perfect for girls like me who are too lazy for touch ups, cuz really, who’s got time for that?
$28 at the pharmacy
5- Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick
Here’s a fantastic alternative for those of you who have been coveting the previously mentioned product (you can thank me later). Not only is this matte liquid lipstick lightweight and more pigmented than its Smashbox counterpart, it’s guaranteed to give your lips a matte finish… at a fraction of the cost!
