Nothing sends our self-esteem soaring quite like lipstick. It’s funny how one little tube can transform our faces (and our moods) in just seconds! We may not ever understand its magic completely, but we’re OK with that. We’re good with just relishing in the joys of lipstick and the many possibilities it presents. In fact, we decided to pay homage to our absolute favorite makeup product by listing the five lipsticks that will never go out of style and will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Nude is one of those shades that always delivers, no matter the occasion or ensemble required. Just like red adds a sassy edge to any look, nude adds a touch of class and sophistication. And contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t wash you out! Especially if you go with a warm nude like this classic Carnal hue. Featuring a brown undertone, this lipstick makes “going nude” one of the boldest moves you can make!
2. Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom in Rose Rush
You know we couldn’t discuss timeless lipsticks and not mention a classic red! And, while there are hundreds of thousands of red lipsticks out there (#blessed), there’s something about this Maybelline hue that sends us over the moon. Maybe it’s the super-pigmented red shade or maybe it’s the soft, creamy formula that feels like butter on our lips. Whatever it is, we love it and we don’t care who knows it.
Over the last year or so, our love for coral lipstick has quickly grown into a full-blown obsession. This not-quite-red-not-quite-orange hue manages to work with any outfit and any day of the week. And, when it comes to coral, the brighter the better! Which is why we love this bright and beautiful shade from NYX. Nothing screams “rock star” like a vibrant coral pout!
4. YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in Pourpre Intouchable
Every girl should have at least one dark lipstick in her makeup stash, especially come fall and winter months. We love the effortless, cool vibe that oozes from this YSL shade. And, as if the dark berry hue wasn’t swoon-worthy enough, this lipstick contains lip-nourishing ingredients that keep your lips soft and smooth. Need we say more?
5. L'Oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Tender Berry
There’s an undeniable charm and sweetness attached to pink lipstick. This soft pink shade brings out the girly girl in all of us and makes us want to throw on our prettiest dress and revel in some femininity. #GirlPower.
