10 Best Lipsticks
If youre hunting for the best lipstick in the UK, look no further. Browse our round-up of the top 10 lipsticks and find the perfect hydrating glossy colour or high-pigment matte finish in no time. To make life even easier, weve even picked out the best classic red lipstick shades and barely-there nude lip colours from each of the best lipstick brands.
From high end glamour with Tom Fords gorgeous Lip Colours (£38 each) to beauty bargains like Rimmel Londons The Only 1 Lipstick (£6.99), there is 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 MACs famous lipsticks. The pro brand has a huge range of colours available; look out for celebrity collaborations if youre a fan of one-off special editions. The brand recently teamed up with Ellie Goulding, and other famous names include Rihanna and Lady Gaga who have both been part of the brands Viva Glam collections.
If youre hunting for the perfect timeless red lip colour, weve found 10 great options for you. But if youve 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.
