Lipsticks To Love For Valentine’s Day
Personal feeling aside, Valentine’s Day is almost here. While it’s certainly possible to ignore it if you’re in the anti-Hallmark holiday camp, we say that if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Whether you’re spending the fabricated (and we get it, overpriced) holiday with your honey, or sharing a bottle of wine with your girlfriends, you don’t have to hide your excitement at getting to add some color to your wardrobe. Specifically, red and pink. Of course our favorite way to do so is with lipstick.
Here are our top five Valentine’s Day-appropriate lipstick picks.
1. Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick ($26) in Cherry Crush is a truly classic red delivered in an anything but classic formula. It has the color payoff a pigmented liquid lipstick, yet feels balmy and glossy at the same time.
2. Kosas Weightless Lip Color ($28) in Fringe is the ideal unexpected choice.The gorgeous earthy brick-red feels a bit more funky and alternative. We recommended dabbing it on with your fingers for an imperfect application.
3. Pat McGrath Labs BiltzTrance Lipstick ($38) in Nude Romantique is really anything but a subtle nude. The coral-rose finish is full coverage and high-shine, and catches the light in an extremely flattering way. Only Pat McGrath could make shimmer lipstick cool again!
4.By Terry Lip-Expert Matte ($34) in Pink Party is a perfect mod fuschia to add a pop to even the most lackluster of Valentine’s Day plans. Thanks to the high pigmentation, this formula lasts all night, without any drying or cracking.
5. Glossier Lip Gloss ($14) Okay, okay – it’s not a lipstick, but this revolutionary formula more than deserves a mention. The magically non-sticky gloss plumps lips with serious shine, and even lasts while eating. You’ll want multiple after just one try.
