Maybelline New York Color Sensational

Best Drugstore Matte Lipstick

Why people love it
  • Vibrant colors
  • Insane pigmentation
  • Great lasting power

Now you may be slightly surprised to see a Maybelline lipstick so high on our list, but Total Beauty, Huffington Post, Marie Claire, and Harpers Bizarre all agree that for a drugstore brand, Maybelline's got it going on in the lipstick department.

Reviewers report this formula does not settle well on dry or cracked lips.


Formula: Although the formula will vary depending on which lipstick you select, Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick is basically a burst of statement-making color meets a surge of creamy texture, all at an affordable price.

Shade Variety: The thing we love most about Maybelline's Color Sensational collection is that there's a ridiculous variety of colors and shades to choose from, including bolds, vivids, nudes, mattes, and even metallics. Seriously, there are so many great hues we couldn't even pick a favorite!

Staying Power: This affordable lipstick goes on smooth and stays on even after eating, drinking, or smooching. And when it inevitably fades after hours of wear, it still looks polished. Say goodbye to blotchy patches and constantly retouching! 

Price: You can pick this product up for under $8. Seriously, it's a steal.
