In the ongoing pursuit of gorgeous, trendy, and makeout-worthy lips, I present to you the following options. Hold on to your seats, because they’re so effortless your brain might not even be able to handle being so close (to your luscious lips, that is). Starting with the sheerest level of coverage and working up to a deep, pigmented lipstick:
1. Be Adored. Tata Harper’s Be Adored uses filling technology to plump lips with natural, good-for you ingredients. It’s anti-aging, hydrating, and uses Spanish Lavender to relax the muscles that cause the wrinkles we all either currently hate or will future-hate. And the slight tint is pretty cutesy, too.
2. Mango Butter Lipstick. Thank you, Korres, for knowing the way to a woman’s heart… yet again. This creamy lipstick is rich, divine, lasting, hydrating, and about a million other good things. You’ll stay on trend with sheer pigmented color and a super glossy finish.
3. Mega Red. Elizabeth Grant makes the best true red lipstick I’ve ever seen, and the bright tone will last for hours, literally. Put it on in the morning and coast all day. Reapply in the afternoon just for some post-lunch hydration, but you might not even need it then. There’s a reason this intense little tube is a celeb fave.
