5 Nude Drugstore Matte Liquid Lipsticks That AREN'T Drying

For fall, what do you think about a matte lip? What about a nude matte lip? Y'all know I LOVE me some liquid lipsticks, but they can be SO drying, can take some time to apply, and can require a little bit of prep work. And I haven't even mentioned how crazy pricey some of them are. But I want y'all to try them! 

I've got 5 liquid lipsticks from the drugstore (good for the budget) that aren't drying (or sticky--these have a demi-matte finish) and they're nude (easy to wear color, but all have other shades). Now the only question is which matte liquid lipstick should you try first?

  1. NYX is by far my favorite! I have about 5 shades in that particular formula, and I love all of them. Great roundup!

  3. I really want to try that Revlon one. I've tried the L'Oreal one and did like it:)

  4. Love all of these shades of pink! I'd love to try the Essence one. :)


  5. love the price points on these guys! and the colors are perfect. i've been into the nudes lately for sure. the essence one looks like a perfect one for the price!

  6. Lovely that they aren't drying, and love the packaging of Revlon! Gorgeous shades too! Xx


  7. I don't wear matte lipsticks all that often, but I really need to start! These are some great options at an even better price point. I'm all about the nude lip on most days, so I will need to check out the Maybelline Vivid Matte -- such a pretty color!

  8. This is good to know - I've always loved matte lipsticks because I'm not a SHINY girl but I always hated that drying feeling. These are totally noted in my book.

  9. I love the NYX soft matts and also their Liquid Suedes are my favourite as well, they last with drinking for about 3-5 hrs on me personally. My lips are on the dryer side so I just put a little vaseline on top just for a little more wear and hydration. I defiantly have to check out that Maybelline and Loreal ones I've heard great things about both of them.

  10. The only one that I tried is NYX Soft Matte lip cream and recently read about L'Oreal Infalibble Pro Matte Gloss and have been thinking of purchasing a couple to try.

  11. I love nude matte lips! I want to try that one by Revlon.


  12. I haven't tried any of these, but if I were to try one it'd probably be the NYX, it seems all your commenters agree, too! :)


  13. I love nude lips too! I need to try the Revlon and Essence ones. I think I've tried the other three.

  14. I have two of the NYX ones but not that specific color but now I want that too! I love the look of a nude lip, I need to try some of these others!

  15. Oooh, I need to try a few more of these out- I hate it when a long-wear lip is so drying! Especially in the fall/winter when my lips always seem to be chapped.

  16. I have the L´Oréal Pris Infallible Gloss, though in another shade, and I have to say it is by no means matte on me. Is this just my shade or did you experience the same?

  17. I've been wanting to try the maybelline and the revlon one! I have bought a few of them for swap boxes but none for myself.

  18. I love matte lipstick. I a huge fan of Nyx.


  19. I have yet to try a liquid lipstick, and all of these look so pretty. I'll have to pick up a couple on my next Target trip!

  20. You had me at matter but not drying! And that Essence Liquid Lipstick in beauty secret is calling my name :)

  21. I am obsessed with the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss formula and the shade Statement Nude, so I can't wait to pick up more colors from that line. I agree, they are not drying at all...but they also aren't super matte. I have yet to try the Essence line, definitely something to look forward too.

  26. I love the look of matte lipstick and have been wanting to try the Maybelline and the NYX ones! So happy you liked these!

  28. These are all pretty, sadly I don't own any of them! I'm a sucker for mattes, nudes, and matte nudes lol!!

  29. I've actually been really impressed with the revlon ones! Great list!

  30. oh fabulous, you are speaking my frugal language lol. i haven't tried a liquid lipstick at all, but i would probably try the nyx one if i did (trying not to shop right now!). the essence one is catching my eye for some reason! it looks really pretty, and i love that it looks like a lipstick inside the tube lol

  31. The essence one caught my eye and so did the price! i am going to Target tomorrow so I will have to grab one!

  32. I have the one from Maybelline and love it! I'll have to check out the one from Essence. I've been curious about that brand lately.

  33. Oh this post is right up my alley! I definitely need a new nude color for fall, and I like the matte look but HATE the drying factor. Now I just have to decide which one to try!!

  34. I didn't love the Maybelline liquid lips and I haven't tried the Essence ones, but I love the rest! The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are my favorite.

  35. Really pretty picks! I have the Maybelline and while it's gorgeous and makes for a comfortable wear, it's definitely not matte. I was kinda bummed about that.
