The 15 Best Maroon Lipsticks Of All Time

1. MAC Matte Lipstick in Diva

Review

If you are looking for a vampy maroon shade, this cult-favorite lipstick by MAC may be the one for you! While its formula is matte, it is still quite creamy, so it won’t dry out your lips like most matte lipsticks. Its formula lasts through snacking and sipping and still looks good after a meal. Overall, Diva is one shade that flatters all skin tones and certainly deserves a spot in your makeup bag.

Pros
  • Extremely pigmented
  • Long-wearing
  • Easy to apply
  • Non-drying
  • Does not bleed
Cons

None

2. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen

Review

This sweet-scented formula from NYX is every matte lipstick lover’s dream because it is light on the lips and heavy on the pigmentation. Copenhagen is a sultry deep cranberry shade that is a must-have for fall and winter. Its formula is easy to apply, dries well, and does not budge through the day.

Pros
  • Lightweight
  • Extremely pigmented
  • Long-wearing
  • Pleasant smell
  • Value for money
Cons

3. Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in Divine Wine

Review

Maybelline’s Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick is infused with oils for a comfortable feel all day. Divine Wine is a rich red wine shade, much like MAC’s Diva. If you are looking for an affordable dupe for Diva, this shade is going to be the closest thing you find. While its formula is not as long-wearing as MAC’s, this lipstick definitely is a winner in the drugstore department.

Pros
  • Easy to apply
  • Highly pigmented
  • Lightweight
  • Keeps lips hydrated
  • Inexpensive
Cons
  • Average staying power

4. Lime Crime Matte Velvetines in Wicked

Review

If you are all for vegan and cruelty-free makeup, this liquid lipstick from Lime Crime is worth a shot! Wicked is a deep burgundy with slightly brown undertones. Its formula gives you opaque coverage with just one swipe. It then sets into a beautiful matte finish within 20 seconds of application. But, here’s a heads up: since this is a liquid matte formula, it may make your lips extremely dry. Hence, it is not recommended for dry or mature lips.

Pros
  • Pleasant smell
  • Extremely pigmented
  • Long-lasting
  • Lightweight
Cons
  • Dries out lips

5. Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Screen Queen

Pros
  • Lightweight
  • Extremely pigmented
  • Non-drying
  • Long-wearing
  • Value for money
Cons

None
