Urban Decay is known for creating brash, bold colors for the edgier lipstick junkies out there. So if you're looking for a show-stopping mauve (or any shade really), this is the brand to try.
Doesn't last quite as long as several of the other brands on our list, but its still pretty impressive.
Formula: Urban Decay's luxurious formula is loaded with nourishing ingredients, including: a tasty butter blend, which comforts and softens; aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils to hydrate; Illipe butter (derived from Malaysian illipe trees) to moisturize; and vitamin C and vitamin E to provide a hit of antioxidants. It's creamy, easy to apply, and won't leave lips feeling dry or sticky.
Staying Power: Reviewers rave that this matte lipstick will last from day to tonight and is perfect for both daytime and evening wear.
Shade Variety: Urban Decay offers a variety of products, but we're partial to their Vice matte--which comes in a whopping 41 different shades. We recommend Rush if you're looking for a deep mauve. However, if you're looking for something outside the box, Best Products recommends something along the lines of Unicorn or Blackmail (sounds dangerous, right?).
Price: At $17 this isn't the cheapest product on our list, but for a bold, edgy lipstick that will last all day long, it's at least worth a try.
