    1. Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick, a dreamy pigmented formula that goes on smoothly and then β€” get this β€” STAYS on.

    Jennifer Tonti/BuzzFeed, Walmart

    Promising review: "This is the first liquid lip I actually swear by. The applicator itself is revolutionary to me; it has a pointed oval shape with a hole in the middle. At first I didn't understand how this was going to help with application but let me tell you, it was a breeze! The hole in the middle holds a bit of product in it and as you swipe across the lips it paints a full-coverage coat in one go. You really don't need a lot either. One thin layer dries down in about a minute. If you really want ZERO stickiness all day. Your lips will be set (but not too dry!) ALL DAY. Throughout the day it remains smooth and pigmented. It doesn't crack or peel either! Plus it comes in the cutest colors for every season!" –Jennifer Tonti (check out her full review here, #1)

    Price: $7.94 (available in 28 colors)

    2. Burt's Bees 100% Natural Glossy Lipstick, a paraben-free pick with recycled packaging, so you can feel fab both because of your awesome look and because of your responsible beauty choices.


    Promising review: "It's not as tinted as I was expecting, but as I kept using it I liked it more and more. Now it's the lipstick I reach for most often in my bag. It gives a lovely, somewhat subtle splash of color to my lips that I can use every day, but it's nice enough for special occasions, too. I like the little bit of sparkle in it. It is not super long-lasting, but it feels creamy and moisturizing and glides on easily. The packaging is cute, too!" β€”Red16

    Price: $7.63+ (available in six colors)

    3. Lipstick Queen Shade Transforming Lipstick in the very appropriately named shade Frog Prince β€” it looks green, but once you kiss (er, apply) it, it turns a gorgeous and unique shade of pink based on the pH of your skin!


    Promising review: "This is so cool! It's the perfect color for my lips! It's very moisturizing too, like lip balm!" β€”Crystarela

    Price: $19.99

    4. NYX Butter Lipstick in a punchy summer shade to compliment every sundress in your closet.


    At this price, you could literally buy one to match every outfit.

    Promising review: "This lipstick feels like a lip balm when you put it on β€” it's so smooth and truly is buttery. I love it because it lasts so long; I don't have to reapply and it makes my lips feel smooth all day. It really does compare to some high-end lipsticks that I have. I really recommend it." β€”theprincesstheory

    Price: $3.22+ (available in 12 shades, all with cute summery names like "Boardwalk" and "Staycation")

    5. E.l.f. Cosmetics Liquid Matte Lipstick, which is so easy to apply and comfortable to wear, you'd gladly have paid triple for it.


    Promising review: "I used two coats and I really loved the angled brush for precision. It dried down very quickly and had a nice smooth finish. I went to a winter festival and this lippie survived hard ciders and hot chocolate without leaving any color on my mugs. Most of the day, I forgot I was even wearing anything because it felt so smooth, not drying or heavy at all. The only con was that it faded in the inner lip area, but that's to be expected I think. It had a smooth fade in those areas, with no patchy pieces left behind. For the price, I don't think there's anything else out there that's comparable." β€”AllieMae

    Price: $5 (available in five colors)

    6. Flower Cosmetics Petal Pout Velvet Matte Lip Color, a cruelty-free, antioxidant-rich lipstick that you'll wan't to pe-tell all your friends about. I mean, can we talk about how pretty and luxe the packaging looks for the price?!

    @flowerbeauty / Via

    Promising review: "I don't wear a ton of lipstick, so I don't like to spend a ton of money on it. That can lead to a lot of terrible lipsticks, but this one is fantastic! It's affordable, so I can get a ton of colors, and it goes on smoothly. It even lasts for a surprisingly long time, so I don't have to reapply that often. Love it!" β€”MJ

    Price: $5.98 (available in 24 colors)

    7. Covergirl Exhibitionist Cream Lipstick, a go-to lippie that's probably in Goldilocks' makeup bag. It's not too matte, not too glossy, but juuuustttt right.


    It's cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "This lipstick is so creamy β€” a few swipes and my lips are coated. It doesn't streak or clump up anywhere. I love it so much because it actually hydrates my lips, unlike a lot of lipsticks I've tried. It lasts hours but isn't hard to take off with makeup remover. It smells amazing (slightly sweet) but not an overpowering fragrance. It's not super matte but not super glossy (which I like) and I love the color range. I have a few from this line. You can easily find a color that's close to your natural, or something more bold. This works even better than some high-end brands that I've used, for less than half the price. I always get asked what I have on my lips! I keep one in my purse all the time." β€”carolynw4

    Price: $3.05+ (available in 27 colors)

    8. Milani Color Statement Matte Lipstick, a lightweight, vegan, and cruelty-free wonder formulated with vitamins A and C that your lips will thank you for.

    @milanicosmetics / Via

    Promising review: "My lips stay moisturized all day with this lipstick. The long-lasting color wear is always surprising β€” whenever I feel the need to reapply lipstick, I'm always surprised that the color is still there. It's so comfortable to wear. I often forget that I'm wearing it because it's such a thin layer of color application." β€”Lady Lydia

    Price: $4.97+ (available in 15 colors)

    9. NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, a rich and bold liquid lippie made with vitamin E and avocado oil, not to mention such a low price tag that you'll be easily ~suede~ to try it.

    Walmart, NYX / Via

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite lip products HANDS DOWN. I absolutely love these. They last about eight hours for me and dry to transfer little to no product. I have about 15 of the colors and am still getting more!!" β€”Majaraaa

    Price: $1.81+ (available in 20 colors)

    10. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in a classy and classic red that'll make you look like an old-Hollywood bombshell. You are so ready for your close-up.


    It's made with vitamin E and avocado oil!

    Promising review: "This is my go-to lipstick. I've been wearing this formula for a while now. I love the fact that it's very creamy and doesn't dry out my lips. It's very long-wearing and doesn't become gummy or sticky throughout the day. The price can't be beat!" β€”miswinston

    Price: $4.97+ (available in 18 colors)

    11. Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick, a lightweight and budget-friendly option available in every shade from classic pinks to bold-as-heck teal.

    Wet n Wild, Walmart

    Promising review: "I am so in love with this product! I recently became interested in matte lipstick and looked around for some. I paid $12 for a Morphe lipstick and it's great, but I truly do not feel it compares to this. Give Me Mocha is my absolute favorite!! It's a color that never goes out of style and can be worn all year long! It goes on so smoothly and looks amazing when it dries. I only apply it once in the morning and it stays on all day! I would highly recommend this product for someone who's looking for a great lipstick without breaking the bank!" β€”ELLmocha

    Price: $4.68+ (available in 20 colors)

    12. A paraben-free Found matte liquid lipstick and lip liner duo so you can get everything you need for the perfect lip look for under $10.


    It's made with antioxidant-rich marula oil and fatty acid-rich evening primrose oil to keep your lips feeling healthy and soft!

    Promising review: "I really love the smell of these lip products; it's like cake! I have the Caramel color and it applies a little more sheer, which is honestly very on-trend, and I don't always want a bold lip. The price is really great for this being a lipstick and liner duo." β€”Kitkit88

    Price: $5.32+ (available in four colors)

    13. Rimmel Provocalips 16HR Kiss-Proof Lip Colour, a two-in-one lippie (it comes with a color and a topcoat to lock it in) that can withstand the longest of days and busiest of schedules. I wish I had the same level of endurance a hectic day, tbh.


    Promising review: "I put my face on at 6 a.m. and I take it off around 9 p.m. and don't have to touch up my lipstick once all day. I don't even take a makeup bag with me. EVER! With two kids and two dogs, I kiss their faces and my lipstick stays on! Eating food or getting dental cleanings, this lipstick stays!! I tell everyone about it because I cannot live without this product! " β€”Peppermintpoot

    Price: $6.17+ (available in six colors)

    14. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick, which is truly the ~balm~ dot com. It conditions so well, you might actually start to like saying the word "moist," since there will be no other way to describe your lips.


    Promising review: "I have very dry lips. I've tried so many products, and no matter what, they all need frequent reapplication to make my lips feel moist. This feels luxurious and keeps my lips feeling fabulous for hours, and it's so lightweight I hardly know it's there. I've never found a lipstick or lip balm that can last as long as this. I'd be super happy if they created a small purse or pocket size (I like to reapply after eating). All in all, it's the best I've ever discovered." β€”EmLu

    Price: $4.15+ (available in 16 colors)

    15. Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain, a natural-looking tint that works double duty, so it's pretty much all you need for your whole face on light makeup days.

    Jane Iredale, Walmart

    Promising review: "I love these lip and check stains. They're great for travel, and just the right amount of color for lips and cheeks. It's more like a balm β€” very moisturizing and protective for lips, but gives a luminous, healthy color on cheeks too. I have both the pink and peach and think they would work on any skin tone." β€”JH

    Price: $17.99 for the pink, $22.05 for the peach

    16. Maybelline Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipstick, which is made with reflective oils so your pout will catch all the light and shine heckin' bright.


    Promising review: "I picked up the shade Baddest Beige after seeing Jaclyn Hill RAVE about it in her 2018 makeup favorites video on YouTube. I do NOT like matte lipstick so this sounded perfect for me! I'm obsessed with a nude lip so I knew it was going to be good. It did not disappoint! It's a beautiful nude shade!! I actually really like the formula of this lipstick. It's different from anything else I've tried before. It's got a beautiful, hydrating, high-shine finish on the lips. It's like a gloss but in lipstick form. It's not heavy or sticky like a gloss, though. It's perfect! You do have to reapply throughout the day but I don't mind that. I can't wait to try out more nude shades!" β€”KaitJonyl

    Price: $5.94 (available in 10 colors)

    17. L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Ultra Matte Nude Lipstick, a non-drying lippie here to prove that even neutral tones can make a major statement β€” it's the texture that matters.


    Promising review: "I have tried sooo many matte lipsticks, from drugstore to super high-end, and THIS ONE is the best. The formula is perfect. Please don't ever stop making it or change the formula! The color Full-Blown Fawn is the perfect nude I've been searching for. This is my holy grail lipstick now!" β€”CJC124

    Price: $7.97 (available in 16 colors)

    18. An amazingly affordable set of five lipsticks in classic colors that's a perfect starter set for beauty newbies.


    Promising review: "This is the second time I've purchased this brand. I'm fairly picky about lipstick and I like these a lot. They apply well, do not bleed, and last as long as any other lipstick. I have been pleasantly surprised by the quality for this price." β€”Lisa

    Price: $7.99

    19. Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipstick, a super-pigmented lipstick that's perfect for anyone who's sick of red and nude lipsticks getting all the glory. What about blue, purple, black, orange, and even white?


    It's made with honey nectar to make it look extra creamy!

    Promising review: "I was looking for a black lipstick when I came across this line. The model was my complexion, so I bought it. This gives me the confidence to be bold! I get a lot of compliments, even from strangers! I also have it in gunmetal." β€”CASS59

    Price: $2.87+ (available in 14 colors)

    20. Physicians Formula The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick, which is made with tons of superpowered ingredients β€” like hyaluronic acid, vitamins E and A, and avocado oil β€” designed to help hydrate and smooth your lips with regular use.


    Promising review: "This product is amazing! The color is super vibrant. The applicator helps the product go on smoothly, and once on it feels soft and moisturizing. It goes on easily and lasts a long time. I drank my coffee and ate my TV dinner and it hadn't even faded. The price is amazing considering the quality. It drys fast and looks velvety just as advertised. It has quickly become one of my new faves." β€”Charlotte

    Price: $2.10+ (available in 13 colors)

    21. And finally, a whimsical set of wine-bottle shaped lip tints, because wine not add a little extra fun to your makeup routine?


    Promising review: "These lip tints are adorable! When I got them in the mail I was super excited to try out all of the colors!! When you first put them on they do feel a little bit watery, however they dry pretty quickly after applying. What's so amazing about these is that they are pigmented. It took me long time to remove the tint; even after removing my lips were still tinted with the color. Overall, I would highly recommend these to anyone!" β€”Nctzen

    Price: $9.33 for a set of six
