Today is National Lipstick Day so I thought I would share some of my favourites! I tried to pick a combination of current favourites (which let’s be honest – can change weekly) as well as staples that I’ve been reaching for all year. For anyone who has been a long-time reader of this blog, I actually wrote a similar post in 2016. In fact, the Fresh Sugar Lip balm is still an every day favourite of mine but I decided to show six new lipsticks.
Current Favourite Lipsticks of 2018
Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink | If you want a lipstick that lasts, you need to try this one. I ate a 3-course meal on our last cruise and it didn’t budge! This particular one is in the shade “Loyalist” which is a bit too light for me, but I had to rave about this formula. I definitely plan to pick up a few other colors. Bonus: it’s from the drugstore!
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in “Lovesick” | I haven’t been wearing many matte lipsticks lately because I am all about the gloss, but this is a staple. When I’m looking for a long lasting but comfortable nude lipstick, this is my go-to.
YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick in “20 – Coral in Passion” | I cannot find this exact shade on Sephora so I’ve linked to a similar one. These YSL lipsticks are definitely in my top 3 and I always try to spluge on a new shade during the sales. They are buttery, glossy and smell amazing plus the pigmentation is great for a balm! Any suggestions for which shade I should pick up next?
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in “Sugarcane” | I haven’t reached for this one in a while but I feel that it deserves a spot on the list. It’s a great everyday nude-pink that earned itself it’s own post on my blog. Plus, it’s on sale for $22.50CAD right now so grab it while you can!
Fenty Gloss Bomb | Hands down my favourite product of 2017 and quite possibly 2018 as well. This is my everyday, go-to lip gloss. It is universally flattering, non-sticky, and smells like tropical fruit. It makes my lips look bigger and better in every possible way.
Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer in “Sugar Sugar” | This is an oldie but a goodie. I’ve actually been reaching for this one a lot in the past week. It’s the perfect champagne nude that packs a lot of gloss. It has a fine microshimmer that is barely noticable on the lips and a minty flavor. I’m dying to try the stick version as well!
Despite having a huge lipstick collection, I reach for these six (and the Fresh balm) more than the others. What are your current favourite lipsticks?
