7 Lipstick Picks That Destroy The Rest

7 Lipstick Picks That Destroy The Rest

I enlisted the help of Valeria Lipovetsky, who is arguably the best person to take lipstick advice from. There's her 15+ years in the fashion and beauty industry to consider, and she's a talent at trial-and-error-ing products. I've compiled her current go-to, high quality lip products for you to step back into the spotlight with. 

 

Depending on where you're living these days, I think we can all agree we're seeing more of each other's faces now than we have in the past two years. Perhaps it's time to step up the lipstick game, because I don't know about you, but I haven't invested in - or had any reason to even consider - my lip color. I was out of my league on this one, so I enlisted the help of Valeria Lipovetsky, who is arguably the best person to take lipstick advice from. There's her 15+ years in the fashion and beauty industry to consider, and she's a talent at trial-and-error-ing products. I've  compiled her go-to, high quality lip products for you to step back into the spotlight with. 

 

1. Tata Harper, Vitamin-infused Cream Blush,
in Naughty

If you know Valeria, you know she loves a 2-in-1 product. It means one less thing to carry around with you and one less thing to drop coin on. That's why this nifty little cream blush is brilliant for coordinating the color of your cheeks with your lips - and it's the perfect choice for touch-ups.

2. Chanel, Baume Essentiel,
in Rosee

Again, a 2-for-1 is the way to go. Our advice is to invest in a multi-stick (there are several great ones on the market, the above pictured being one of Valeria's favourites). Find the color that works for your skin tone and you can wear for multiple occasions - so a lighter blush pink for example, so you can lightly dab it on for everyday use, or put on an extra layer for an evening out.

3. Charlotte Tilbury, Pillow Talk

Shop this product: Charlotte Tilbury, Pillow Talk

This one is a long-standing favorite. The ol' reliable, if you will. Everyone needs a nude lipstick. The choice shade for when you're feeling, shall we say, chic but not like a blood-red "I'm coming for you" chic. It's an everyday essential you can rely on. 

 

 


4. Chanel, Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue

Shop this product: Chanel, Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue

For you lovers of the glossy, shiny look - find an easy application gloss. This Chanel duo piece has a liquid lip color on one end and a gloss on the other - so that second layer of application really allows that glossy look to stick for hours. 

  

5. Dior, Rouge Dior

Everyone needs that red lip. As you can see on Valeria pictured below, the power to create that really full lip is in your hands with this one. Drawing shape, filling in, or just adding that intense color - whatever your aim, another lipstick everyone needs is that deep red. For when you need to strike that power pose, we choose Dior because there are multiple deeper red shades and having that selection is important.

6. Summer Fridays, Lip Butter Balm,
in Vanilla Beige

Even though winter is almost over (thank God), we can't forget to hydrate our lips - especially if we're wearing more product on them these days. Always have a lip balm on hand, and we suggest getting one with a bit of a tint so you can hydrate while incorporating some color. This one from Summer Fridays has a nice plumping effect, and I personally use it as an overnight lip mask when my lips are feeling really dry.

7. Chanel, Coco Flash,
in Jour

What's your night out go-to? For us, it's this shade from Chanel. It's enough to fill out your lips and it has this really subtle, natural, beautiful color. The best part is you don't need to pile this on; it's intense in one swipe and has a shiny look from its thin coating and glossy oil - which reflects light to really maximize that look.
