For some women, the cornerstone of feeling good about themselves starts with lipstick. Need a quick pick-me-up after a long day? Put on a red lip. Heading to pick up the kids and feeling disheveled? Put on a nude lip.
Matte finishes, gloss to stains and sheer tints—lipstick is always a win for every skin tone and attitude. Tip: If you look best in bright white colors, cool nudes and dark reds will look great on you. If you look awesome in cream colors, opt for warm nudes and soft reds. If you look stunning in both (lucky you) neutral nudes and any color red will work for you.
Here are seven shades for every type of occasion:
Want a non-sticky gloss with major shine? Look no further than this lipstick formulated with agave, moringa oil and capuacu butter for a moisture boost your lips will love. Best of all? Revlon sized up the reservoir-tipped applicator so it saturates your lips in one swipe.
This vegan-friendly, peachy nude gives 'your lips but better' vibes. The soft sheen isn't overpowering and practically compliments every outfit you own. We also love that 10% percent of the brands profits are donated to bee conservation and animal welfare nonprofits.
Silky, yet semi-matte, you get the best of both worlds with this creamy lipstick. It's also encased in a sleek gold metallic case with a magnetic seal that will look great on your vanity.
The price for this lipstick is a bit steep, but there's a good reason—it's formulated with skin care ingredients, like argan tree and safflower oils, so they provide the lips with moisture while giving you the payoff of a lipstick with the shine of a gloss.
This ultra-comfortable, non-drying liquid lip ink delivers the no-makeup feel of a stain combined with the color impact of a liquid lipstick. The collection is available in eight Parisian Sunset shades, and 12 signature shades, but we love that the deep red works great on every tone.
We're obsessed with liquid lipsticks, but we hate how drying they can be. Honest changed the game with this lippie that has the staying power of a liquid lipstick without drying out your lips.
When you're busy with kids, you need a lipstick that lasts all day. Who has time to constantly reapply lipstick? Try this mauve pink shade that stays put for up to 12 hours.
