If you’re hunting for the best lipstick in the UK then look no further. We’ve round-up the top 10 lipsticks on shop shelves at this very moment, so you can find the perfect hydrating glossy colour or high-pigment matte finish in no time.
To make life even easier, we’ve even picked out the best classic red lipstick shades and barely-there nude lip colours from each of the best lipstick brands. If you’re already set your sights on finding the perfect red lipstick then make sure you also check out our ultimate round-up of the best red lipstick shades available.
From high end glamour with Tom Ford’s gorgeous Lip Colours (£38 each) to beauty bargains like Rimmel London’s The Only 1 Lipstick (£6.99), we’ve discovered the perfect choice for every budget, too. We think a designer lipstick is the perfect item to splurge on; a stylish lip colour is the perfect opportunity to own your own little piece of Chanel or Tom Ford. Both brands feature classy black and gold packaging and will look just as chic in your handbag as they will on your lips.
If you want a precise, contoured, long-lasting finish, you should also think about investing in a matching lip liner for your lip colour. Nearly all brands offer corresponding liner colours, but if you cant find an exact match, invest in a high quality nude lip liner that will stop colour bleeding into the surrounding area.
If you want a professional matte finish, opt for one of MAC’s famous lipsticks. The pro brand has a huge range of colours available; look out for celebrity collaborations if you’re a fan of one-off special editions. The brand have previously teamed up with stars such as Ellie Goulding, and other famous names include Rihanna and Lady Gaga who have both been part of the brands Viva Glam collections.
If you’re hunting for the perfect timeless red lip colour, we’ve found plenty of great options for you. But if you’ve never owned Revlons Fire and Ice shade, now is the time to invest. Launched in 1952 and associated with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, its pin-up perfect.
