Huda Beauty Liquid Comfort Transfer Proof Lipstick, 116 AED | Huda Beauty 

The product that launched Huda Kattan’s brand and is still one of her best-selling products and shades, Bombshell. Infused with antioxidants and an exclusive moisturizing complex, the liquid matte lipstick now boasts the thinnest possible formula that keeps lips supple and hydrated throughout the day. The weightless and velvety lipstick dries down with zero stickiness, leaving a soft yet suede-matte finish.

Pure Color Whipped Matte Liquid Lip,189.00 AED | Estée Lauder

One of our beauty editor Becky’s personal favourites, this lightweight cream is unlike other liquid lipstick formula's out there. It whipped and velvety texture makes application a breeze. When it comes to colour payoff, it leaves behind a seriously long-lasting, romantic soft tint.

Soft Matte Lip Cream, 45 AED | NYX

Time and again, NYX proves hardworking products needn’t break the bank – and few liquid lipsticks have gotten quite as much praise as this one. With an incredible shade range spanning more than 20 colours, the signature texture is hydrating and nourishing in feel. For a flattering everyday nude, ‘Abu Dhabi’ is a crowd favourite, but the range also includes bold reds and pretty pinks.

Air Matte Lip Colour, 104 AED | NARS

A classic matte liquid lipstick, this goes on like a cream, before drying down to a velvet matte finish. Regardless of whether you’re eating or drinking, this won’t budge – but while it’s on your lips, it won’t cause dryness, flakiness, or texture either. Instead, it helps the lips feel smooth and healthy – plus, there are so many flattering shades to choose from.

Almost Lipstick In 'Black Honey', 135 AED | Clinique

While this colour may look bold in the tube, it actually delivers an incredibly natural flush to the lips – just ask TikTok. With an effect that looks like you’ve just eaten a handful of cherries, the stain-like finish is both long-lasting and nourishing – pop it on in the morning, and you’ll still be able to see the colour come evening.
