Pout On: These Are The Best Matte Lipsticks Under 500 In India

We find the idea of wearing strong make-up in summer quite uncomfortable. Don’t you agree? The heat already makes one sweaty and sticky, over that if one wears a sticky lipgloss or liquid lipstick, I can’t imagine the day going smoothly for that person. So, the secret of putting on make-up in the scorching heat is keeping it light toned and non-glossy. Additionally, matte finish to one’s make-up adds an appeal of natural freshness which is highly important during summers. We have found some of the best matte lipsticks brands which are also easy on the pocket.

Maybelline New York

Maybelline New York has an amazing collection of matte lipsticks that you can check out this summer. Go for their Color Sensational Creamy matte lipsticks and their recently launched, Colour Sensational Powder matte lipsticks. Both of these products give a matte look and moisturise your lips. You can find them both on Nykaa or any cosmetic store.
