An Official Ranking of the Best Liquid Lipsticks Ever

Matte liquid lipstick can often divide opinion. Sure, they look great, last all day and the colour payoff is usually way higher than their balmier counterparts, but matte liquid lipsticks have gained a bit of a bad rep over the years for leaving lips feeling dry and looking chapped. Get the formula wrong and rather than showing off your pillowy plump pout, you'll be showing off every chap and crack in sight.

But thanks to new-generation formulas, the very best matte liquid lipsticks won't leave your lips crying out for hydration. With the right prep (we're talking a good lip scrub and conditioning balm) and a nourishing formulation, there's no need for your lips to look like they've spent a week in the Sahara.

So, to help you choose which liquid lipstick is right for you, we've compiled a list of the best matte liquid lipsticks out there. Tried, tested and loved by Team Byrdie, you can be safe in the knowledge that you're officially buying the best.
