A good, long-lasting lippie is one of the most important makeup products in a working woman’s bag. Lipsticks can brighten up your look like nothing else. But you also need to keep things professional, so creamy and transferable formulas are out of the question. This is why matte lipsticks are all the rage today – they give your lips beautiful colour without the sheen or the gloss. In this list are some of the most popular and affordable matte lipsticks available in the Indian market, with several different colour variants to choose from!
- Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick
This lipstick from the popular brand Maybelline is one of the best matte lipsticks in the Indian market. It comes with a non-drying, nourishing formula that feels luxurious while also giving you a matte finish. It is long-lasting, water-proof, and moisturizing – the best options for those who avoid matte lipsticks because of dryness.
This amazing lippie comes in a whopping 20 shade variants, all suited to Indian skin tones – from gorgeous nudes and deep reds to flamboyant, bold colours. It is also one of the most affordable lipsticks in the market and can be worn at any time of the year – total value for money!

- Lakme 9-to-5 Primer + Matte Lip Color
Lakme’s 9-to-5 range is a staple in every working woman’s handbag. This product has withstood the test of time and only gotten better with the years.
