Well we all love a good Matte lipstick and my favourite has to be the nudes. I have said before I'm no Kylie Jenner but I do know what colours suit me and a Matte nude has been my lipstick of choice for quite a while now. Saying that I do love a more darker Matte lipstick from time to time.
While I'm more of a lipstick girl I have been trying the Matte lip creams that have because popular over the last couple of years. I love the long lasting effect of these and if I don't have to reapply till lunch time I'm a happy girl.

Whatever your budget there are some fab cheaper products around that deserve a mention and if you are abit make up savvy like myself are worth a try and can give the more expensive products a run for there money.
In this blog I'm going to tell you all about my favourite matte lip products and show you whatever your budget you can still get some great cheaper products.

The three lipsticks above are my all time go to Lipsticks and I have to about five of the Primark one because its my all time favourite and has fantastic staying power.
The three that I have chosen are;
MUA in the shade fancy and this is just a £1.
PS PRIMARK in the shade Naked and this is just £1.50...(I know I cant believe it either)
RIMMEL in the shade Trendsetter this is the most expensive one of the three at £5.99.. its a more creamy formula but its not worth the extra money compared to the other two.

Last year saw the Matte liquid lip take over from the regular lipstick. (I'm a lipstick girl myself).
In my opinion these are longer lasting put can be not as comfortable on the lips as a regular lipstick

Four of my favourite liquid lip products are very purse friendly and are long lasting.
The four I have chosen (I wanted to find three but I'm spoilt for choice) are:
NYX liquid Suede in Sandstorm which is the most expensive out of the four but the staying power is amazing.
Maybelline Vivid Matte in Nude Thrill which is the most comfortable but not as long lasting as the NYX one.
MUA Velvet lip Lacquer in the shade Tranquility is super long lasting but can be quite drying on the lips and doesn't fade evenly.
Essence XXXL in the shade Soft Nude is very comfortable to wear but needs reapplying the most out of the four but its the cheapest.
NYX is the shade at the top followed by Maybelline ,MUA and Essence at the bottom.

Last but not least I have two Berry matte lip products to show you. I am more of a nude lip girl myself but sometimes its nice to have a change.

Two I can recommend are:
Maybelline Matte lipstick in the shade Divine Wine which has super staying power and is super creamy and very comfortable on the lips.
Revlon Matte Balm Crayon in the shade Fiery Flamoyante is a matte version of the original Balm Crayon. I love the formula of this but at £7.99 its quite expensive.

The one on the right is the Revlon and the Maybelline is on the left.

So there you have it..My guide to my favourite budget Matte lip products.If you know any more budget hidden gems I might like to try please leave me a comment as I would love to try new things.
Happy Makeup Shopping.
