Matte lipsticks often get a bad reputation for being drying on the pout—chapped, cracked lips are never cute, TBH. Thankfully, those days are over because today's matte lippies are comfortable to wear. New formulas are highly pigmented and hydrating so you get an opaque layer of color in one swipe that never makes your lips feel taut and dry. 

Ahead, we present to you the ultimate list of the best matte lipsticks money can buy.
