Why do we love lipsticks that do nothing but dry your lips? Dried lips are unattractive as they are naked but when you apply lipstick to them it just enhances all the flakes, cracks and flaws you were trying to hide in the first place. Not to mention the feathering! As much as we love matte lipsticks, they too tend to be on the dry side so even if you don't have dry lips, you will after you apply it. What's a girl to do with so many lip dilemmas? You're in luck! There are quite a few lipsticks available (even matte ones!) that don't dry your lips out and once you try them you'll wonder, 'How did I survive this long without you'?
First thing's first, look for a formula that is made with a hydrating formula and moisturizers. Some ingredients you may want to look for are Shea butter, mango butter, chamomilla flower oil, sweet almond oil, sesame oil, musk rose oil, apricot oil and coconut oil just to name a few. The more natural ingredients the better for your lips. Don't think that you have to spend a lot of many either. Lipsticks that won't dry your lips run from drugstore prices (in the $6.99 area) but some can go higher into the high end retail spectrum ($50 and up). Here are 20 great lipsticks (some mattes too) that won't dry out your lips and with winter being just around the corner, it may be time to check them out.
