Whether its the perfect your-lips-but-better shade or a standout red, lipstick has the ability to complete your look, complement your mood, and generally increase your confidence. So in honor on National Lipstick Day (July 29), we rounded up our editors favorite lipsticks— the ones that we wear on repeat and never disappoint. Everyone has their own style which means variety abounds from bold reds, to sweet berries, and subtle neutrals. One of our faves might very well become one of your favorites, too.
Tap through for eight awesome, NYLON-approved lipsticks.
“Skin tone lipsticks can be so tricky. They can look sickly gray or too pink or too matte. This one always does it for me. The beige shade adds just the right amount of color and luster to my lips and works with any kind of makeup look. Plus, the gold case is so pretty to pull out of my purse.” —Sam Neibart, Beauty Editor
“This is what I reach for when I need something that I know will look good with everything. The shade goes with my complexion perfectly. This pencil makes my lips look soft and can pretty much last through an entire evening out—dinner, drinks, and all!” —Alex Pipia, Social Media Manager
