Top 5 High End Lipsticks

Liquid lipsticks are all everyone is talking about, and I feel like the classic lipstick has been almost forgotten. I thought I would review my top five favorite luxury lipsticks. I will be going in order from least to most favorite. So lets get into it!

Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Pink Chocolate $17.00

Most might not consider Clinique a “high end” brand because their products are on the cheaper side, but I consider pretty much anything sold in Sephora to be high end. I never hear about these lipsticks, but I think they are so great. They come off as more of a satin finish than a matte one, but they last forever and feel comfortable on the lips. This color is such a beautiful chocolatey reddish pink, and it looks flattering on most. One of my favorite things about this lipstick though is the packaging. It is very sleek, and it has a lot of weight to it, which I like in a product that I’ve spent good money on.

NARS Lipstick in Bilbao $28.00

“shimmering topaz”

This has been a favorite of mine for a while, and this is my second tube of it. I got this my sophomore year of high school when I got my make-up done for prom. This is a very subtle, shimmery brown that gives just enough color to be flattering. Paired with a nude or brown gloss, this looks so sophisticated and classy. I am not a huge fan of most of the classic NARS lipsticks, I find them very drying, but this one feels very light and comfortable.

Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Beige 2 $27.00

“light warm beige”

This is another color I discovered during prom season a while ago. It goes on so smooth and creamy, and feels hydrating for hours. This is my perfect satin nude, and I love pairing this with a darker nude lip liner to deepen it up. I love the packaging on this too, it is very timeless.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Vera $32.00

“bright raspberry”

The Audacious line from NARS is probably one of my all time favorite lipstick formulas. They are so pigmented and luxurious, the packaging is stunning, the only downside is the price tag. Of the three that I own, my favorite to wear is Vera. It is the perfect winter pop of color. These last forever and never dry out my lips, and if I ever do have to reapply, it doesn’t look odd or crumbly, even though it is pretty matte.

Givenchy Le Rouge in 103 Brun Creatèur $36.00

“dusty rose”

This is my all time favorite lipstick. There is nothing I don’t like about it. The color, the silver and leather case, its all perfect. I haven’t tried any of the other colors from this line because I can’t afford it, but I’m sure they would perform the same as this. Honestly though, I don’t really need any more because this is my perfect color. It gives life to my lips and make them look plump and beautiful. I love the entire process of this lipstick, from applying to reapplying, I hate taking it off. I rarely hear people talk much about these, but if you want to splurge on a lipstick, let it be this one.

Let me know your favorites! Thanks for reading!!

Glowingly yours,

Jess
