Pen clicking, foot tapping, teeth grinding—they say nervous habits die hard, and I couldn’t agree more. Everyone has a habit they want to kick, yet most don’t seem to budge. Mine? Lip biting. I’ve done it for as long as I can remember (and have gotten flack from my mom ever since), but I just can’t seem to kick it. Needless to say, this not-so-pretty habit doesn’t go hand in hand with my affinity for bright lipsticks (or my wallet).

Even the “longest-wearing” formulas stay on for a fragment of their promised time because of my constant picking, so constant reapplication—we’re talking at an ad-nauseam rate—is an absolute must in order to keep any color on my lips. The lipsticks I’ve found to last the longest are the pricier ones, and I’ve been OK with shelling out a good chunk of change if it came with the promise of less coats throughout the day, until I met a formula that rung it at under $4 and lasted way longer than any of these. Allow me to introduce you to my newest best friends, the Matte Liquid Lipsticks from BRITE Organix.
Vegan, cruelty-free and completely smudge-proof, these matte lipsticks come in come in nine different shades ranging from a perfect nude to a fire-engine red, and, trust me, once you try one, you’ll want them all. Unlike many other matte formulas that leave lips feeling full-on desert dry, this one wears comfortably—I actually forgot I was wearing it until I went to reapply and realized I didn’t have to because it was all still on my lips (with zero feathering to be found). If you’re a matte-lipstick gal, go ahead and buy these in bulk. If you’re more of a glossy type, do the same and swipe your go-to-shine on top. At this price, you have nothing to lose—except half of your high-end lipstick collection you’ll soon realize is way overpriced.
