The matte lipstick trend is making a comeback and we couldn't be more excited. Not only does matte lipstick work well for day and night, it also tends to have longer staying power — and less of a sticky quality — than traditional lipsticks and glosses. But one of matte lipstick's biggest downfall is its chalky, patchy application that can dry out lips. That's why our criteria for the best matte lipstick has three parts: It should be highly pigmented, last all day and — most importantly — not make your lips feel dryer than the Sahara. According to our readers, these nine best matte lipsticks fit the bill.
