T00 Faced Melted Liquified Long-Wear Lipstick, $21

Housed in tubes with sponge applicators, these lip shades may seem like simple glosses. But once applied, they delivered everything we want in a bold lipcolormajor color payoff with absolutely zero stickiness.


Tom Ford Lips & Boys, $32

These mini versions of Tom Ford’s famously luxe formula aren’t only more affordable than the originals (and better sized for jean pockets), they are produced in far more shades than the original offerings. Each of the 50 lipsticks in this capsule collection are named after a boy in the designer’s life. But if you want to nab your own, do it soonthe limited edition collection is selling out fast.

Milani Matte Lipstick, $6

This Italian makeup line is just debuting stateside and we couldn’t be more stoked. The matte lipsticks are super affordable, long wear and come in highly pigmented shades like Confident (shown above)a perfect crimson color.

Lipstick Queen Lipstick in Hello Sailor, $25

We know, we know. This hydrating lipstick looks more gothic raver than romantic when in the tube. But the navy blue magically turns in to a sheer wash of blackberry when on the lips, making it the perfect pick-me-up for the low-maintenance girl on the go.


jane gloss

Jane Cosmetics Intense Color Lip Gloss, $7

If you want your lips to appear more full, then gloss is the way to go. But sometimes, glosses don’t add enough color to the lips. This high-shine version also packs major color payoff and smells like sweet vanilla, to boot.

Memebox I’m Lipstick, $8

Some aspects of the Korean beauty trend can seem iffy (see: face creams with snail secretions and sheep placenta). But give us a beautiful matte lipstick in a statement-making shade for under $10 bucks and we’re definitely on board.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, $20

 This twofer tube packs major change: its liquid gloss goes on smooth, but morphs into a matte lipstick once on the lips. Although it delivers major color, the formula feels so lightweight, it’s as if we aren’t wearing anything at all.
