Need a new lippie for Valentine’s?
With so many options at the department store, it can definitely feel overwhelming—since you’re not just considering shade anymore. These days, you also have to think about the finish, the lasting power, and the formula of every lipstick tube—and instead of being excited, you end up exhausted instead!
But not to worry! To help you pick, we rounded up seven gorgeous lippies that are affordable, Pinoy-owned, and celeb-approved—so you can look and feel great on your Valentine’s date. Take your pick from these pretty lippies:
1. All-Day Intense Matte Lipstick (BLK Cosmetics, P299)
Anne Curtis and BLK Cosmetics’ promise of “uncomplicated beauty” is reflected in their matte lipstick, which comes in fourteen gorgeous shades across four makeup collections. Pick from the K-beauty or 90s inspired collections for a specific look or choose from the original six for an easy, breezy, daily-use lippie.
2. Lustrous Matte Lipstick (Lustrous, P399)
Nadine Lustre’s collaboration with BYS Cosmetics has brought us twelve galactic shades inspired by the zodiac signs. At 399, they’re the priciest lippies on this list, but they definitely give off that luxe makeup vibe without the four-digit price tag. Plus, Nadine wears them in most of her shoots, so you can bank on having the same lipstick she slayed in.
3. Good Vibes Matte Lipstick (Vice Cosmetics, P199)
Long-lasting, great shade range, and only 199 pesos? Vice Ganda hit a jackpot with this one. This lippie promises to “go on matte without drying your lips” so you can bank on a matte pout without the icky crumbly look.
4. Fluffmatte (Sunnies Face, P345)
Sunnies Face broke the Internet last year when they released Fluffmatte, a creamy matte lipstick with 9 shades that are supposed to look good on most Pinay skintones. It quickly sold out and it took more than a month before it was restocked—but thankfully you can now get these online and in-store very easily. These will certainly spark joy in your inner ‘It Girl’!
5. Kiss & Bloom Water Lip & Cheek Tint (Happy Skin Cosmetics, P299)
If you’re a busy girl like Kathryn Bernardo, you probably need a multi-use product that you can use all over the face—or at least, on the lips and cheeks. Happy Skin’s collab with Kath ticks all the boxes for the on-the-go gal, with the added bonus of having pretty pink packaging!
