July 29th is National Lipstick Day, and according to the National Day Calendar website, the idea behind it is to encourage people to show off their favorite shade. So, if you are looking for the best lipstick to suit your mood or a palette of colors for your pro makeup kit, we put together this guide to some lip color products you’ll love.
Full Color for the Lipstick Purist
Traditional lipstick, a wax stick encased in a tube, is a timeless classic. The bullet shape is a work of modern art, not to mention the mere act of swiveling it up and applying it makes us feel glamorous like a golden age movie star. Ben Nye Lipstick will satisfy that new-lipstick craving with many beautiful shades to choose from —including some of the best red lipsticks around—without breaking the bank on prestige prices.
Single tubes aren’t just great for personal use; they make it easy to create customized lipstick palettes. But, if you prefer the convenience of one that’s ready-made, there are some fabulous options. The best part is you’ll get multiple lip colors in one quick, add-to-cart motion and save lots of time by not making one yourself!
Products for the Lipstick Perfectionist
Using lip liner or pencil helps to define the lips for a crisp and polished look, not to mention it’s a temporary and affordable way to enhance the size or shape. And Lipchic Lipstick Sealer gives traditional lipstick formulas durable, kiss-proof wear, hence its longstanding role in everything from soap operas to Broadway shows and even weddings. While there are a few steps for applying this product—mainly blotting and layering—the results are worth it!
One Step Glam with Liquid Lipsticks
Liquid lipsticks are an excellent choice for opaque coverage with extended wear. These formulations from Dose of Colors and Make Up For Ever are self-setting to lock down the pigment for hours, and the doe-foot wand in the cap makes application easy. Of course, if you use these in your pro makeup kit, you’ll want to ensure you have plenty of disposable single-use applicators.
The Effortless Beauty of Lip Gloss
Glossy lips are back in a big way, and we’re loving it! Dose of Colors delivers creamy pigment in nude and “lippie” tones for that ’00s vibe as well as two shimmer lip gloss options. Viseart Moisture Boost Oil Lip Shine provides a high sheen with a hint of color, making them universally flattering. You can also get lip gloss in palettes from Ben Nye and Graftobian for adding the perfect shade of gleam to your desired lip look.
An Bold Accessory to Fabulousness
You’ll no doubt need a something to carry all your lip amazing products, and the Lipstick Lovers Bag is perfect for the job because it’s dazzling to look at and sure to make you smile whenever you reach for your favorite shade!
