Today I’m celebrating National Lipstick Day by sharing my top five favorite colors of all time. I don’t feel polished without a good, proper lip. Maybe it’s because I grew up with a mom who never went without it, and still doesn’t. Maybe it’s because the best exclamation point on any outfit is matching your lip color to your shoes.
Here are the 5 best lipsticks of all time IMHO:
It’s a cult favorite for a reason. Ruby Woo is the most perfect true red lipstick. Just the slightest hint of blue goes unnoticed by the naked eye, yet makes any smile seem whiter.
NARS Matte Lipstick in Schiap
I may never be able to figure out the correct pronunciation of this one, which is kind of embarrassing because I am asked about it all the time. It’s the one color I always keep in my bag.
NARS Matte Finish Lipstick in Heatwave
Heatwave is the only orange tinted red lipstick that actually looks good on everyone.
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Voluminous Matt Lip Color in L’Exuberante
L’Exuberante a both a bold berry and a neutral. It’s my go-to everyday color.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Tilt
