Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Lip Lacquer

BEST FOR: A high-shine lip

USERS SAID: "I absolutely looove the formula of this lip rouge. My lips are perpetually dry and chapped and this product is amazingly smooth and moisturizing. One swipe with the doe foot applicator will give your lips just a hint of color that adds a subtle touch for that effortless and naturally youthful look."

Rimmel London Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour

LOVED FOR: Its stay-put formula that's kiss proof, food proof, and transfer proof

Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro

BEST FOR: A rich matte lip color with a plush texture

USERS SAID: "Tried this on before I bought it and I was instantly hooked! I usually stay away from anything matte because I have such dry lips, but this one kept my lips looking smooth and velvety." 

Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Cream Lip Stain

Revlon Balm Stain

BEST FOR: A lightweight flush of color on-the-go

USERS SAID: "This has saved my life - figuratively. On the days when I'm too exhausted to wear any makeup, or when I'm going to be late, I just use the lip balm and apply to my lips, cheeks, and a little on the outer corners of my eyes (to add definition). Great for a quick swipe!"

Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek and Lip Stain

BEST FOR: A sexy, flush lip or cheek color

USERS SAID: "I love this! It gives a great flush to both cheeks and lips and is very natural looking. I don't go a day without using it!"

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick

BEST FOR: Maintaining a silky lip stain that lasts from day to night with ease

USERS SAID: "I've had my eye on this lip stain for MONTHS! I finally bought it a few weeks ago and can't wait to go back for more colors. It's rich, STAYS ON all day, doesn't take much to get full, red lips and is easy to apply."
