Lipsticks are the new game changers – it can make a difference, a statement, and a personality boost.

Women do not color their lips to impress, but to express. Expressing emotions, mood, and character can be done by wearing lipsticks in different colors, shades, or volume.

The lipstick craze began when trending make-up artists posted make-up video tutorials online and Hollywood stars launched their own cosmetic lines. Of course, social media heightened the lipstick curiosity of the public.

A good lipstick is considered as one of the most important investments of a woman. It can save you from an emergency night out with friends, instant date with your special someone, or just from your bad hair day. Conceal your dull and stressed look by adding extra life on your lips – nude/peachy brown for your everyday school/office look, pink for a movie night out with your boyfriend, red/maroon for your bar hopping Friday nights, or just any shade that suits your mood and makes you feel dazzling!

As a lipstick collector myself, I always see to it to buy quality products that suit my budget. I read feedbacks and watch videos online before buying a certain product. During my free time, I constantly visit a Facebook make-up page with more than 80,000 members to check out the latest make-up trend, price, and product reviews and recommendations. From the Facebook threads and endless comment sections, I came across three lipstick brands that cost below P250 which are highly recommended by the users and tried it personally to satisfy my curiosity. I must say, these liquid matte lippies are worth the try – great quality, non-drying, and long lasting!

Here are the three quality matte lipsticks that will not hurt your pockets.
