Lipstick help!

Haven't splashed out on a really nice lipstick for years and can't get to any make up shops so will have to do online.

What's a nice, Matt lipstick that's not drying. I have awful dry lips.

And amazing shades? Beige/rose/pink type colours suit me.

MAC all the way. Velvet Teddy is almost universally flattering, Faux also great.

The urban decay comfort mattes look matte but are much easier to wear and not as drying on the lips as many of the other matte ranges like Mac etc.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks are a lovely texture and not too matte or drying. I would recommend Pillow Talk (and buy the matching lip liner). Lovely packaging too.

(Also, it might be just me, but I don't think Velvet Teddy is that flattering on a lot of people, but agree that Faux is a lovely option and not as expensive as CT)

Avon's range of matte lipsticks are lovely, they feel really creamy and don't dry my lips out at all. A lot cheaper than MAC but I tbf I haven't tried the MAC ones so not sure on how good they are.
