It’s National Lipstick Day and there’s really nothing else you should do, except to reach out for your favourite lip colour. If you’re in need for some recommendations, here are some of our favourite lipsticks to wear.
#1 NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment Lipstick in Get Up Stand Up, $40
Weightless, pigmented and long-wearing – The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is one of the most comfortable to wear. The applicator is smaller than a regular doe foot, making it easy to make precise strokes.
#2 Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 42 Rose Wood, $19
We lost count of the number of shades available for the Sephora Cream Lip Stain, and while there are really bold shades like purple and blues, they also have an amazing selection of wearable, everyday shades. The Sephora Cream Lip Stain glides on easily and stays on until you’re ready to take it off. At $19 a pop, it’s really a steal for a lip colour of this quality.
#3 Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Vernis À Lèvres Waterstain in 610 Nude Underwater, $52
The Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Vernis À Lèvres Waterstain combines the glossiness of lip gloss, the colour payoff of lipsticks and the longevity of long-lasting lipstick. It’s incredibly lightweight and comfortable to wear, but doesn’t feel sticky.
#4 Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Rouge Matte in Midnight Magic, $70
Even though it’s a matte lipstick, we love how the Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Rouge Matte glides on the lips. It’s very pigmented, with wearable colours that will take you from day to night easily.
#5 Fenty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Colour in Uncensored, $36
“Uncensored” was the first shade of liquid lipstick launched by Fenty and we can totally see why. This power red lipstick suits almost every skin tone, and has a long-wearing formula that doesn’t feel drying on the lips.

#6 M.A.C Powder Kiss Lipstick, $33
It’s hard to describe the unique texture of this lipstick and we think you really have to try it out for yourself. The lipstick glides on like finely-milled powder on skin, but it’s soooo pigmented and weightless – we honestly haven’t seen any other lipstick with the same texture… yet.
#7 Pat McGrath MatteTrance Lipstick in Elson, $59
Matte, but never dry. The MatteTrance Lipstick boasts of a unique blend of polymers which hugs the lip contours without emphasising on lines.
#8 Peripera Ink Matte Blur in #3 Heatwave Orange, $18.90
The newest lip colour range to be introduced by the brand, this lipstick goes on with a creamy texture but blends out to give a vivid, powdery finish ; best for an ombre, barely-there lip colour. Plus, it has a range of 10 shades that really flatter Asian skin tones.
#9 shu uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick in BG954, $38
shu uemura has one of the widest range of lipsticks that are suitable for Asian skin tones. The Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipsticks may sound drying, but has one of the best velvety texture that glides on lips easily.
#10 Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick in Rose Decadent, $40
Wearing the Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick is like putting on an expensive cream for your lips. The texture is hydrating and luxurious, with an amazing colour payoff. Blend out for a sheer, barely-there colour or just load it on for a bold, vivid pout.
