Every woman who has put on a sexy red or sultry burgundy shade for a dinner date can attest to the fact that lip colours can transform your look instantly. However, the power of a lipstick is more far-reaching than that. As Coco Chanel once said, “If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack”, a slick of lipstick has a mood-altering effect as well. And lipstick sales reflect that because each time the economy goes south, the number of lipsticks sold spike.
Best part, lip colours are about as low as you can go in terms of commitment level for beauty products because you can easily switch up your look by wearing multiple shades in a day. And with the thousands of options we have—be it glosses, liquid lip colours, crayons, as well as the multitude of finishes available, it can be difficult to select the absolute must-haves to add to your vanity. Don’t go shopping without reading this list of beauty editors’ favourite lipsticks.
