If you’re in search of a pink-y nude, this is the pick for you. For meetings and after-work drinks, I tuck this in my bag to touch-up my lips for a subtle wash of color.
We love matte lipsticks, but the formulas are often super drying, which is why these Tarteist Lip Paints are rising to the top of our lippie favorites. The color is super rich, goes on smooth and won’t leave your lips feeling dry and flaky. The lipsticks also have the best names, but this berry “Hangry” shade is our favorite.

Corals look great on brown skin, and this Le Métier de Beauté Moisture Matte Lipstick in Cinema, hydrates and gives full color in a petite bullet that fits perfectly into that tiny clutch you own that’s only big enough for your cell phone. Bye-Bye dull, dry lips!

There aren’t many things that top having a gorgeous red lip. MAC’s new Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours are the holy grail of liquid lipsticks. Long-wearing, über pigmented and easy to apply. We’re obsessed with this bright citrus red shade appropriately titled “Quite the Standout” for the woman who refuses to blend in.
