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.
Price: Colour Sensational Creamy matte- INR 299; Maybelline Powder matte- INR 450
Daily Poutine Picks: Ravishing rose and Daringly Nude (Colour Sensational Creamy matte); Almond pink and Make Me Blush (Powder Matte)
Lakme also has many matte lipsticks that are good for the summertime. If we had to pick, we’d always go with the Lakme 9-5 Primer + matte Lip Colour. You can find them at Nykaa.
Price: INR 432
Daily Poutine Picks: Coral Date Lake and MP16 Pink Perfect
Read any Miss Claire lipstick review and you’ll reach one consensus: these are perfect for a professional look in the summertime. Their long-lasting matte lipsticks give a non-drying matte finish which means that they do have a hint of gloss but not too much, like liquid lipsticks do. Basically, they are in between matte and super glossy lipsticks. Their colour range is also towards the darker side, so if you are planning to go bold without being a hot mess, this might be your new fave.
Price: INR 295
Daily Poutine Picks: French Peach and Solid Red
Nykaa offers the best matte lipsticks in the lower range with a variety of colours that are perfect for the summer. The brand has really taken the country by storm. Not convinced? Check any Nykaa lipstick review online. Go to Nykaa at once and get yourself a nice matte lipstick for this summer.

Colorbar too has upped their game with the new Colorbar Velvet matte Lipstick. This is smudge-proof and can last up to five hours, thus making this lipstick perfect for office goers.

Wet And Wild
