10 Ways To Remove Matte Lipstick Without Damaging Or Drying Out Your Pout

The liquid lipstick trend isn't going anywhere, and while we love kiss-proof pouts, the drying formulation of long wearing lipstick can concrete onto lips and make it impossible to remove the color. If you're wondering how to remove matte lipstick, here are the 10 best matte lipstick removers out there. You might already have some in your bathroom cabinet.

Lipstick smeared all over your face after a long night out is, well, annoying. That's why most of us love long-wearing liquid lipstick. It'll hold up through dinner, won't transfer during a little makeout sesh, and won't budge outside your lip line. But the problem with a product that does what it says it does? Removing it without scraping off multiple layers of skin in the process. That's where matte lipstick removers come it. They remove dry, sometimes flaking pigment easily and painlessly. The best kind will also repair and replenish your lips with moisture and essential vitamins.

If you can’t swing an expensive matte lip remover, you’re still in luck. Fortunately, there are some great home remedies for matte lipstick removal. Your tried and true beauty companions, like coconut and olive oil, can take off your makeup easily and safely.
