There were actually a lot of fantastic lipsticks released this year! I already pulled up twenty that to consider for the top ten, and I had only reached August (I go backwards). There were 52 pages of lip product reviews to sift through (that’s 312 posts!), and these were the ones that made the cut:
First, truth be told, I could not stick to just FIVE measly choices for pink lipsticks that would be fitting for Valentine’s Day. These are just my first five, so there are more to come. This is a good mix of pinks available, but the next one will focus on brighter pinks
This particular formula is supposed to be long-wearing, non-drying, highly pigmented, and non-feathering.The color is definitely opaque, and you need very little product to do so; one glide across the lips yields excellent color coverage. It has a creamy consistency that doesn’t feel too heavy or have too much slip. When I tested this shade for wear, it wore well for around six hours, and my lips didn’t feel dry or chapped after such long-wear either, which was a nice surprise. I don’t typically have major issues with lipsticks feathering on me, but just to affirm, Raspberry Sorbet did not feather on me.
Laura Mercier's lipsticks are really underrated--I don't remember trying one that didn't wow me! The texture is so creamy without being heavy or slippery, and the color coverage is exactly as described by the brand.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
