If you're looking for your next ultimate lip obsession, look no further. We went under the radar to find the brands we *know* you'll be dying to try next. From powder tints to mini lip matchsticks, we've found a new lip product in every shade for everyone. And if those don't interest you, check out how one brand is creating lipstick and more to match your beauty imagination. We die!
BÉSAME COSMETICS MATCHBOOK LIPSTICK
Are you always on the go? Do you love anything vintage inspired? Then Bésame may be for you!
We tested their Matchbook Lipsticks in the shade ‘Red Velvet.’ The packaging and product are perfectly portioned for jet-setters with each matchstick holding enough product for 2-3 applications. The formula is smooth, semi-matte, and extremely comfortable for long wear. Each of their lipsticks are infused with macadamia oil, aloe vera, vitamin C & chamomile, keeping your pout perfect before and after application.
FINDING FERDINAND CUSTOM LIPSTICK
Have you ever wondered if you could create your lipstick color or maybe recreate one you used to have? With the help of Finding Ferdinand, it's only a few clicks away.
Each color is handcrafted with botanicals filled with natural anti-aging properties, sunscreen, and moisturizer. On their website or the app, pick and choose opacity, ratio, and finish for each of your colors. Within a week you'll have your custom color in hand personalized, just for you.
TOUCH IN SOL CHROMA POWDER TINT
Powder Lipstick is something I never thought I'd see, but when I did I was instantly intrigued and had so many questions. How does it apply? How does it look? How does it feel?
The doe-foot applicator is cool to the touch and the micro-powder feeling disappears as you glide the product across, creating a smooth stain on the lips. After it's applied and set, the weightless formula lasts for hours.
KRISTOFER BUCKLE COSMETICS CASHMERE SLIP LONG WEAR LIPSTICK
Ever wonder how celebs get that perfect pout?
Thanks to Kristofer Buckle, makeup artist for Mariah Carey and Blake Lively, it’s easy! Your favorite colors come with a complementary shade to create a stunning, dimensional lip. Begin by using the darker color to create a lip shape. Fill the remainder of the lips with the complementary shade, beginning from the center of the lips. Be sure to blend the two colors together for a look that’s red-carpet-ready.
CIVILIZED COSMETICS LIQUID LIP SUEDE
Vegan, non-toxic, and natural are the three standards Civilized Cosmetics upholds. The brand carries beautiful, naturally pigmented liquid lipsticks. Each lipstick is stunning when applied, but after washing it away, lips are left smooth and conditioned for the next application. Each lipstick is infused with chamomile, green tea, vitamin E, plumeria, elderberry, and kaolin. One of the brand's goals was to create a product without harming people, animals, or the environment. Mission accomplished!
