COMMENT

Whether you are going for a just-kissed look, a glittery pout, a perfectly luscious red effect, or a satiny sheer shade, it would all depend on the lipstick that you are wearing.

Take a look at this list of top 8 lipsticks I've personally been addicted to lately and you'll know which fabulous rouge a levre to reach for next time you are at the beauty counter!

8. Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold by Lancome ...

Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold by Lancome ...

Expert's Opinion:

"These Lipcolors seem to last for hours (even after you eat!) and really moisturize my thirsty lips."

- says Dedlejuse, from Beautifile

Description: Dress your lips in new Color Design Lipcolor for full coverage, smooth hold and sensational effects in one coat. Creams, sheens, shimmers and metallics -- four modern finishes for custom lip styling. A range of 36 shades to create the perfect designer's palette for any lip tone.

My Comment: If you're looking for a gloss/lipstick combination, this is it. I tried Smooth Hold in the color Oh My!, which is shimmery and beautiful brown-beige. I love the fact that it almost looks like I've applied a gloss over the lipstick, so it gives me that extra shiny look.

Don't be fooled, though...

Smooth Hold is not sticky like a gloss at all.

It's creamy, not drying, and lasts and lasts.

7. Semi-Matte Lipstick by NARS ...

Semi-Matte Lipstick by NARS ...

Expert's Opinion:

"And, how can you not love NARS lip color? I mean they have every color under the Milky Way but they’re just awesome. Velvet. Cream. Semi-matte. Frosted. It sounds like a cupcake factory!"2

- says Kate2004rock, Meg's Makeup Reviews

Description: A wide range of captivating shades designed to provide the look and style the color dictates. A highly pigmented matte formula provides a full-bodied, velvety finish. It's exceedingly longwearing, nourishing and non-drying, with Vitamin E. Once you start wearing NARS lipstick, you won’t want to wear anything else.2

My Comment: Shanghai Red is the color for me. It’s a warm brick red, and it is so flattering, but the best thing about this product is the fact that this lipstick never wears off! Semi-Mattes are so long wearing that I actually removed it at night with my makeup. Like the name implies, it's a matte finish. So, if you're looking for rich, velvety color with little shine, Semi-Matte's the one.
