Let it be known that not all liquid lipsticks were made equal. While most of them do lie on the super-matte and almost paint-like feel, some are actually comfortable on the lips and won't leave yours looking raisin-like at the end of the day. Yep, those exist! As proof, here's a list of our favorites that tick all the right boxes:
L'Oréal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss in Nude Allude, Watsons
Don't let the word gloss put you off. The formula is so soft and moussey you'll forget you're even wearing lipstick.
Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip in Pastel Petal, Glamourbox
Your lips will feel like an actual cloud with this on. Just make sure to apply a very thin layer!
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in HD Romance, P575, Watsons
This formula is the ideal in-between of a matte and a gloss. It's a breeze to reapply, too!
NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in Get It On, Rustan's
A thin even layer is enough not to think about your lip color the whole day.
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Manila, P850, Glamourbox
This one miraculously stays on the lips without any trouble. You can count on it!
Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Black Cherry, P779, Sephora.ph
Here's a formula to try if you love wearing bold liquid lip colors. No settling inside lip lines and certainly no raisin after-effect.
Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer in Cake Pop, SM Megamall
If we were to choose the most beginner-friendly liquid lipstick, it would be this one.
Maybelline Color Jolt Matte in Bittersweet Mandarin, P299, Watsons
Fans of highly-pigmented colors that aren't streaky should try the bold hues from this collection.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow n' Arrow, P1194, Sephora.ph
We don't know what miracle is in this product, but it ticks the transfer-proof, long-wearing, and non-drying boxes all at once.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo, P390, SM Makati
Before liquid lipstick even became a trend, we've already had this in our collection. It's the OG, and you'll know exactly why once you experience its seamless application and pillowy feel.
