When it comes to cosmetics, most girls opt to buy brands that are slightly out of budget because of its international merit. But mind you, these local matte lipsticks are just as good. What’s more, they won’t break the bank! Behold our top three picks for the perfect matte pout.
Pink Sugar’s These Lips Don’t Lie Matte Lip Crayon (P399)
Collaborating with Project Vanity’s Liz Lanuzo, Pink Sugar comes up with a line of matte lipsticks that are “fun and cheeky,” appealing to women “who are sweet on the outside but sardonic and funny on the inside.”
Their crayons are infused with Vitamin E and Shea Butter, making it creamy and moisturizing despite its matte finish. We especially love their tint Love at First Swipe, a dramatic peachy cocoa hue perfect for an everyday look.
Happy Skin’s Shut Up & Kiss Me Mini Matte Lippie in Nostalgia (P499)
Heart Evangelista partners up with Happy Skin to create her first line of cosmetics, producing these mini matte lippies that can fit in the smallest of bags and clutches.

The lipsticks are not cakey nor do they wear off easily. They don’t dry out your lips also, as they are packed with Cupuaça butter, shea butter, and collagen, attracting 240% more water that prevents your lips from drying out. We’re obsessed with their dusty rose Nostalgia shade!
Fashion 21’s All Day Matte Lipstick (P175)
The cheapest of the bunch, Fashion 21’s All Day Matte Lipsticks will keep your smoochers moisturized and intensely colored without the heavy masked feeling on your lips.

Choose from their wide array of hues! Our favorite is Russet, a pink shade that isn’t too shockingly bright when applied.
