Lipstick is an accessory in and of itself. In fact, it’s just as much of a statement as wearing an eye-catching necklace or carrying a great bag. That’s why on days when we need an extra dose of power and confidence, we reach for our cosmetic bag and slick on a rich color for an effortless way to elevate any outfit. (Seriously, there’s something sexy about jeans, a t-shirt and ruby red lips.) Now we’re experimenting with — and loving — the burgundy lip that proliferated Fall/Winter 2016 runways around the world. The hues range from making your lips look freshly bitten to deeply wine stained, and the overall effect is more fierce than sweet and ladylike. So when you’re looking for that extra oomph, look no further than our top 10 lipsticks as decided by users, reviewers and bonafide beauty experts.
