#5 Revlon Ultra HD Gel LipColor
Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Colour in Sand is the perfect nude and if you prefer a soft creamier lipstick, this won't dry out your lips.
You might need to reapply after 3-4 hours but with an affordable price tag and a semi-shine it's ideal for wearing to work.
One reviewer says, "Sand is a fitting name for this colour, it is a sheer nude that leans toward the pink side. There's a slight shimmer and just a hint of gloss. The scent is slightly sweet and reminds me of an sweet artificial caramel, I actually enjoy it. This will now be my go to nude!"
#4 Kylie Cosmetics
Jenner definitely has an eye for colour and her Matte Lip Kits come in 46 colours including, Kylie, Bare and Better Not Pout (above). Each kit contains a liquid lipstick and a lip liner so they're value for money and ensure you have the perfect outline and colour fill.
Reviewers absolutely LOVE Kylie's lipstick. Maria says, "I love the color and how it last all day. So beautiful."
#3 Sephora Rouge Satin Lipstick
Available in 20 fabulous shades and with a range of matt, satin, shine and lacquer, Sephora Collection Lipsticks are a beauty bag must-have.
Let Me Dream (pictured above), is a coral pink shade in their Rouge Satin range. This moisturising lipstick is infused with grape seed and apricot kernel oil to keep your lips smooth and colourful all day.
Devi Natalia says, "This is my first satin rouge purchase. To my surprise, the packaging is made of light plastic (it looks heavy and metal like from online). The formula is creamy and buildable. One swipe is kinda sheer, two swipe will give full pigmentation. The shade is gorgeous for light skin tone. It’s peachy pink that doesnt look neon."
#2 MAC Matte Lipstick
Mac have been rocking the world of lipsticks since they came on the scene in 1984. First launched as the makeup for makeup artists, they haven't let us down yet.
One of their best sellers is Mac Matte Lipstick which comes in 39 shades. With the party season coming up you might want to explore some of their brighter colours like Pink Pigeon (above).
Perfect for warm or cool toned skin, this pretty pink will make your pout pop!
One reviewer says, "As an avid lipstick lover, I cannot go past Mac lipsticks. As far as matte goes, these are some of the most comfortable matte finishes I have ever used. I always have one on hand now!. I love that with Mac's recycling program you can get a lipstick for your 6 empties that you bring back into a MAC store."
#1 Charlotte Tilbury
The matte formula goes on like a dream, has a chocolatey scent and really does stay on all day. Hot Lips comes in 10 shades including a hot red (above) called Patsy Red which is an homage to Tilbury's mum, Patsy!
If you have dry lips it's worth investing in the Lip Conditioner. Soothing shea butter, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid will help moisturise your lips under the matte coverage.
One reviewer says, "I’ve been looking for a gorgeous Hollywood red lipstick for a long, long time. I’m not an expert in make-up, so ended up with a lot that looked pink outside the shop, or smudged horrendously. This is a gorgeous not-too-bright-red that does not look pink outside, and does not smudge (unless eating really smudgeable things like English crumpets!) Looks lovely, feels lovely, CT is a gem."
RRP $57 (refills $38)
