However with so many makeup brands these days, it's almost impossible to narrow down on one. No worries! Our beauty expert, Tanisha Diwan has put together a list of 5 best brands and colors for the best matte lipsticks you must own, if you can’t go even a single day without wearing lipstick.


1) M.A.C

"Being a make-up lover myself, I have heard all my friends and I rave about the M.A.C Ruby Woo. Pretty sure you have too. Also, if you didn’t know M.A.C has ruled the charts for matte lipsticks for a very long time", says our beauty expert.



2) Smashbox

Smashbox has newly launched in Delhi and on MyNkyaa and we cannot be more excited. You ask why? We love this brand simply for its paraben free formula and cruelty-free mission. We totally vouch for this brand's formula across its makeup range. You will be surprised to know that their matte lipsticks are super hydrating on the lips! Must try shade: True Red Matte.



3) Huda Beauty

5) Maybelline

Maybelline’s Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color is a range of rich colors which are creamy and super comfortable. It applies on the lips evenly and doesn’t cling to dry patches. Here is hoping Maybelline NEVER discontinues this formula.  Must try shade- Lust for Blush.
