5 Alternative Lip Products For Girls Who Detest Matte Lipstick

Even when you’re a makeup enthusiast, lipstick can be intimidating sometimes, and unsightly when it smudges. Plus, it can get on your teeth and you won’t notice it until someone tells you, “hey, you’ve got lipstick on your teeth.” Embarrassing.

Cue lip tints and glosses which are fuss-free ways to add a pinch of colour to your lips. You won’t need to worry about smudging or post-meal applications. We’ve gathered a list of iconic alternatives to matte lipsticks that you can try (and love!).

Why do you need to suffer through lipstick that cause dry, peeling lips when you have these pout-worthy alternatives?

1. Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint

The watery texture feels so cooling and moisturising to your lips. This water gel tint contains twice as much pigments as a regular lip tint, so you can be sure that your lips stay pouty and pink all day. It’s formulated with pomegranate extract to freshen up those chapped lips.

2. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss

We all want plump, kissable lips, like Kylie Jenner’s. Remember the Kylie lips challenge? Well, thankfully we don’t have to do that because plumping glosses exist to give the same effect. Dior’s plumping lipgloss is formulated with hyaluronic acid to infuse your lips with hydration and plump it up naturally. It’s available in glossy and shimmer finishes so you can either go casual or glam up with these glosses.

3. Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

The OG lip tint is making a comeback. It stains the center of your lips really prettily and you can pat it outwards to achieve an ombre lips effect. Apparently, it’s a favourite product for K-Pop makeup artists, so you know you can sing and dance to Kill This Love, and your lip tint won’t budge no matter what.

4. Lancôme L’absolu Gloss

This lipgloss absoultely hydrates your lips for a seductive, kissable finish. Infused with Vitamin E and moisturizing properties, this luxurious lip gloss fights off environmental aggressors so your pout will look healthier every day. Hey, we some need a lip-restoring makeup sometimes.

5. Peripera Ink The Velvet

This list wouldn’t be complete without this iconic cult favourite. The collection comes in velvety, muted shades like plum pink and beige pink. Anyway, it has a strong stain power and doesn’t ever fade away, even if your lips come in contact with water. Awesome!
