Drugstore Matte Lipstick Review

Revlon Matte Lipcolor

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor- Obsession

  • $9.79 at CVS.
  • Smells Like candy but not overwhelming.
  • Feels soft. Not sticky. Not too wet, not too dry.
  • Lip gloss style applicator.
  • Looks 80% Matte. It doesn’t have that velvet look but its still nice. I really wouldn’t classify it as matte because it still has a little shine.
  • The color is very pretty but a little darker than it looks.
  • Lasts 4-6 hours…if you don’t eat. Transfers when kissing or sipping.
  • Leaves a slight stain after removed.


boreal matte lip gloss

Loreal Infallible Pro matte Gloss- Shanghai Scarlet (308)

  • $9,79 at CVS.
  • Smells very perfumey.
  • Feels like velvet.
  • Lip gloss style but the applicator is a tear drop shape which I LOVE! It makes application so quick and perfect!
  • Looks matte immediately.
  • Color is exactly like shown in bottle.
  • Lasts 4-6 hours but my lips are dry and soak up anything. It definitely transfers onto other people or surfaces.
  • Easy to remove but leaves a slight stain.

Pink Charge matte lipstick

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid- Pink Charge

  • $7.79 at CVS.
  • Doesn’t smell like anything really.
  • Feels like velvet! Very soft.
  • Lip gloss style application.
  • Looks matte immediately.
  • Color is exactly like shown in bottle.
  • Lasts 2-3 hours but I recommend reapplying later in the day, it started looking really dry and thin.
  • Easy to remove but this is also a light color.

To my surprise, I’m in love with the least expensive one! The Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Pink Charge is my favorite of the three. Although I have to reapply it every couple hours, it looks and feels the most matte. Lately I’ve been applying the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Obsession first, using it as a liner and filling in my lips with the Maybelline, giving me an almost ombre look.

  1. Any suggestions, as to which color lipsticks look best on brunettes? I am not sure how to pick a color that looks good on me, please help!! I am Caucasian with brown hair, blue eyes, and terrible with lipstick color choices, but I do like matte finish. Thank you

    1. Hey Daisy! I love your name, so cute! Thanks for your comment! I really love fuchsia, bright orange, or taupe on brunettes. I would recommend heading to your local drugstore and picking up a ton of color from Wet N Wild, they have lipsticks as low as $1.50. You can try a bunch of color and see what looks best on you, but more importantly, what you feel most comfortable in! Thanks again for your comment! XOXO-Isle
