It’s much a more a testament as to how improved Drugstore lipstick formulas have become, but I’ve only bought 3 of the formulas out of the top 10. πŸ˜› The only shade I own is HALO now.

Nice! Drugstore has come a long way. This year, I was able to do more budget-friendly options just because of how much brands have improved overall!

Hmm… probably MAC Toxic Tale, MAC Brick-o-La and NARS Walkyrie. Not necesssarily new but they’re new to my collection. Never owned anything from MAC or NARS until this year because I wasn’t interested in MAC all that much and I thought NARS was over priced. But, I decided to try them anyways and I found some favorites! πŸ™‚

I really wanted Barberry but couldn’t find it in store at the Sephora stores near me and I need to try lipsticks before buying them. My faves – the now permanent MAC Huggable in Red Necessity and UD lipsticks in Manic, Rapture and Jilted.

My # 1 is Chanel La Merveilleuse from the holiday collection and #2 is TF Lips and boys Kingston. Beso UD comes in at #3 for me,, followed by Chantecaille Arctic Rose.

Hmm, I’ve tried quite a few lipsticks in 2015, but can’t recall if any are actually new. My favourite “new for me” lipsticks in 2015 are probably Nars Audrey and Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey (perfect nude for me, colour wise).

It’s really obnoxious that you’re not listing the brand names on all of these posts, so you force us to click and get yourself more as payouts.

BITE ruled 2015 for me. BITE Barberry (had to get backup), BITE Opal (so unique!), BITE 001 January , and BITE Shiraz. And Kat Von D Lolita in traditional formula – I ordered during the 20% off sale, and Sephora accidentally sent me 3 tubes! I didn’t return the extras, because I think they will just throw them away, as none were safety sealed, so I keep one at home, one at work, and one for backup. Can never have enough of Lolita! Gives me Kylie Jenner lips and cheaper than botox

Wohoooooooooooooo πŸ™‚ 2 I have … not bad ahem ahem …

mine would – MARC JACOBS Kiss Kiss Bang Bang πŸ™‚
I adoreeee that shade and also picked UD Strip and ohhh myyy myyyy …

it is super fabulous
and a lot of KAT VON D Liquid lipsticks πŸ™‚

God help me, I love them ALL!!! So happy seeing Derek ❀, Egon, and Sheer Beso made the Top Ten! I totally intend on getting all 3 of these! Perhaps Tropic Tonic, too.?
However, Hiro? He’s missing! My favorite Boy is missing! ?

The ones that I loved most that debuted this year were the Bite Beauty Juniper (from the same collection as the Barberry), MAC Viva Glam Miley II (I have found Miley Cyrus to be problematic this year, but it’s such a beautiful lipstick and a phenomenal cause, so I think that makes it a favorite to me regardless of the spokeswoman), and Kat Von D Double Dare (I’m assuming liquid lipsticks are in this post too!). I’m sure there’s more but I’m having a hard time remembering what was new this year and what was just new-to-me!

I wish I’d gotten Barberry! My new favorite for most lipsticks has been Bite. I still love NARS and Chanel but Bite was really great this year. I also liked the new Clinique Pop Lips and I might pick up Cherry, Berry, and Love at some point. I felt the Nudes in the Pop Lips range were nice as well, so I might try one of those too. I need to make a dent in my current stash though because I always overbuy lip products.

Some of my new favorites are new to me, rather than completely new:

Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros, Egon, Rocco, Theo. Pablo, Giacomo, Joaquin;

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color in Raspberry Pink, Brocade, Your Majesty;

Besame in Red Velvet;

Ardency Inn in Forward, Circa Rose;

NARS Audacious lipsticks in Silvia, Vivien, Greta (added to Fanny, which I already loved);

Kevyn Aucoin lip color in Bloodroses.

NARS Audacious – I know the launch was in 2014 but they were new to me in 2015 and I’m hooked! After getting quite a few I remember thinking that they were all bold colors and I’d have to do a different eye look for them, so I should probably look for their more muted colors until then, and then it hit me “Audacious=bold, duh.” I have Barbara and Raquel but the rest are quite bold. I really like the formula and the wear time of the Audacious line.

I passed on most of MAC’s lipstick this year and I know these colors are not 2015 releases but I did get Crosswires, Amorous, Sweet Sakura, MAC Red and Diva and I like them also. I haven’t worn bold lipstick for about 10 years because of the nude trend, but also because I had lipstick wicking into the tiny lip lines and I just figured my days of wearing a bold, vibrant lip were over. I wear a clear waterproof lipliner (Sephora and MUFE have one and both are good) to prevent that and can now wear bold colors again.

Such a fantastic list. The only one I have of these is a Halo mini. lol

My favorite high-end new/new to me in 2015 were: Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros. MAC Von Teese, Hollywood Cerise, No Faux Pas, Victoriana, Barebecue. UD Sheer Revolution, especially Sheer Rapture. Kat von D Studded Kiss in Piaf. Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in A Go-Go. ABH Liquid Lipstick in Party Girl. Jeffrree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks. Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks.

I think the above range shows how many brands have improved their lipsticks. Unlike the eye shadows, where a few brands dominated, there are quite a few different brands offering a range of colours.
Generally I don’t buy any of the HE lipsticks because I find the colours I really like in the DS range and the HE brands are way too expensive here.

Only Barberry on your top ten. I’m liking Nars Deborah, Leslie, Sandra, Bite LR was It 11? I think there’s a pattern here. Also the Lolita duo, Susperia (sp.? But I loved the movie!) and Nyx Alabama. Was this HE only? Oops.

Have been hoping the Bite Beauty Frozen Berries line would be available in the US for months but I don’t think they ever will be. πŸ™ The colors are really unique and beautiful.

My favorites have been UD’s After Dark and Rapture, Bite Beauty’s Opal, KVD’s Lovecraft, and (sneaking in at the end of December) MAC’s Commotion. I almost purchased Barberry… then talked myself out of it as I’d planned on getting TF’s Metallic Jelly instead. (But neglected to add it to my wishlist…)
